What to see in Surabaya?

That was a question that I had been asking to my fellow Indonesian who knew Surabaya better than me. Unfortunately, I did not get diverse answers. Most of them said, plainly, malls. Sigh.

I love shopping, don’t get me wrong. But to go to place where one can only find shopping malls is nightmare, well to me it is. I had choice but to expect nothing from this so-called third biggest city in Indonesia. And I was shocked knowing that The Amazing Race 21 visited Surabaya!!! Wow. However, even in a blink of an eye, I managed to visit some interesting places that you might want to see when you visit Surabaya.

We stayed at Twin Hotel (you can read my review on Trip Advisor). But I saw Majapahit Hotel that was quite vintage for you who looked for this stuffs.

We also found Batik House! A house that sells original Batik from East Java. We bought a handful for our friends in Jakarta 🙂

Overall, it was a nice short trip. By the way, here are some photos of my hotel. I highly recommend their Apple Pie, yummm!!! 🙂


Enjoy your holiday where ever you are! 😀
