Surabaya is an important city. For one, it's the capital city of East Java province in Indonesia. For another, it houses one of the busiest trading ports, moving coffee, tobacco, and sugar in and out to different parts of Asia.
More than its administrative and economic significance, Surabaya is also a touristic gem, featuring an array of exciting and unique attractions. One of its main attractions is Chinatown, where you can navigate to various Chinese shops and restaurants on foot. Spectacular landmarks like Monumen Pesawat TNI AU, Monumen Kapal Selam Surabaya, and Tugu Pahlawan are other destinations you can't miss for their beauty and history. You also could not skip Surabaya delights. Its delicacies of curries and sweet snacks, like rujak petis or the local fruit salad, are utterly satisfying and pleasing to the palate.
Surabaya is a fantastic jump-off point to a day tour of Mount Bromo. It is also well-serviced by local and international flights. Surabaya-Juanda International Airport flies to Singapore, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Brunei, and Malaysia among others.
