Surabaya
Surabaya The Essential
The Dutch made this the top trading port of the Dutch East Indies, linking it to Batavia (Jakarta) by railway. Today, Surabaya, the country's second-largest conglomeration, offers the visitor not so much a charming stopover as a glimpse of modern, urban Indonesia, with its fair share of buildings, traffic and noise. Either you will seek out the heart and soul of this cosmopolitan metropolis in the Indian and Chinese districts or quickly head for Madura Island, which is a 30min boat ride away.
