Surabaya Tourist Information

INTERESTING THINGS TO DO AND SEE IN AND AROUND SURABAYA

The city's claim for fame in modern history is its vanguard role in the struggle for independence against colonial forces in 1945.

The former Oranje Hotel, now named The Oriental Majapahit, is the place where Indonesian freedom fighters took down the Dutch Red White & Blue undoing it from the color blue and thus creating Indonesia's national Red & White.

The Majapahit dynasty, based in and around Surabaya, began the foundations of an empire that was to dominate the entire Indonesian archipelago, the Malay Peninsula as well as part of the Philippines. It also established profitable trade relations with China, Cambodia, Siam, Burma and Vietnam.

  1. Make a trip to Mount Bromo and witness an awesome sunrise
  2. Enjoy high tea in the lounge of the historic Mandarin Oriental Majapahit Hotel (formerly Oranje Hotel, and founded by the Sarkies family of Singapore's Raffles Hotel fame)

HOW TO GET THERE
