I was visiting Surabaya last 2011 summer holiday. Well-designed city, great spots, this 2nd largest city in Indonesia is the real Jakarta's competitor.
1. Pasar Atum Foodcourt
Helena Natanael: must buy : a delicious food from East Java named Nasi Rawon + Empal ! Realy delicious ( ˆ⌣ˆ ) ♉
2. Tunjungan Plaza
Helena Natanael: If you know Tunjungan Plaza, then one day you come to Jakarta, just visit Taman Anggrek Mall, they both really look same :)
3. Mie kedungdoro
Helena Natanael: Capcay in this restaurant is really delicious ! have a great dinner here guys.. the decoration is kinda simple and oldies, but sometime you need to feel that feelings, it's all about simply life.
4. Jembatan Suramadu (Suramadu Bridge)
Helena Natanael: Breath-taking bridge, look like the golden gate @ San Francisco, USA. the government of East Java has built one of few great bridge in Indonesia. :)
