Information about Surabaya
Surabaya is the capital of the East Java province and the second largest metropolitan city in Indonesia, following Jakarta. The city of Surabaya received its name from an old folktale that tells the story of a battle between the suro/sura (shark) and the baya/boyo (crocodile). These animals remain the symbols of the city today. However, Surabaya has far more to offer than an interesting name. The city is home to an abundance of tourist-friendly sites, including the Masjid Cheng Ho mosque, the historic Gereja Katolik Kelahiran Santa Perawan church, the 41-meter tall Tugu Pahlawan monument, beautiful Kenjeran Beach, Bungkul Park, the House of Sampoerna museum and so much more. Additionally, visitors will want to reserve plenty of time for tasting the delicious foods of Surabaya and wandering its countless shops and marketplaces. Most visitors access Surabaya and all of East Java through Juanda International Airport, which is one of the busiest airports in the country.
