Surabaya is a city on the eastern side of Java, in the East Java province of Indonesia. It is the second largest city in the country with over 10 million inhabitants in its metropolitan area.
The city's tree-lined streets and renovated pavements will impress those newly arrived from other cities in the archipelago, though in general the city's attractions tend to be more apparent to those who make it their home rather than to short-term visitors.
Put in the effort here, and you'll have an authentic, fascinating, unique experience of an Asia that once was: get it while it lasts.
