the hottest city in indonesia, but having uniqely. many place, many food, and many traditions


The only reasons I visited this city were for business and on my way to see Bromo. Surabaya is another business city that does not offer a lot of sight seeing options. Other than the food is great, I find it difficult to admire this city.
