About Surabaya:

Surabaya is not a tourist hub. You will hardly find any foreign tourists around. And because of this, you will find it a lot difficult to communicate if you don’t know the local language. There is a tourist bus run by the department of tourism which takes you around the city for free.

Economy of the trip:

Surabaya is very economical to travel. There are a lot of shopping malls where you can get things at a discount.

Things you shouldn’t miss in Surabaya:

Take a trip to Mt.Bromo. Check up about the volcanic activity of this mountain. If its not active, you can even trek up to the crater!!


Its worth going to Surabaya just to visit Mt.Bromo. Its an experience in itself. And yeah, Bali is 14hrs away!!
