Surabaya a trading city that is also attractive to travel




Most Indonesian know what and where Surabaya is. It is a fast growing city. Surabaya is located between Denpasar Bali and Jakarta - the capital city of Indonesia. Although Bali is more famous internationally as a hub for tourists, Surabaya is also attractive due to its many night life attractions. People do not consider Surabaya as a tourist destination but there are many interesting places to visit. The nightlife of Surabaya is typically the same as many other big cities around the world.

I donít travel very often. But when I have some money and time I usually fly to Surabaya, the second largest city in Indonesia. Surabaya is famous for its malls, traditional markets and restaurants.  Surabaya is the trading hub for East Indonesia region. It is also a transit city for travelers who want to go to Bali or Yogyakarta and Jakarta.

Traveling in Surabaya is easy because all places can be assessed by car. Most of the problems that are related to city life are the crowds and traffic jam. Usually traffic jam occurs early in the morning at around seven to nine and in the evening at around five to seven.

So if you intend to travel around the city, choose the right time. Your travel guide or tour agency can set the most suitable hour and places to visit.

In my experience when I traveled to Surabaya early this year, Singapore of Surabaya was the recommended place to eating out at night. It is located not far from Pakuwon mall. There travelers can enjoy the romantic night live of Surabaya. There are restaurants along the street which offer Indonesian, Chinese and Western cuisines.

Travelers can also enjoy shopping in Tunjungan Plaza, Delta Plaza or Galaxi and Pakuwon Mall. Personally I like to visit Delta Plasa that is located in the city center. Most foreign travelers like to go to Galaxi mall. You can choose whatever shopping centers you are interested in.
