Surabaya

Surabaya

Founded nearly eight centuries ago, Indonesia’s second largest city has seen empires come and go.

In recent decades, Surabaya has grown into a cosmopolitan seaport and conurbation where 21st century hotels, apartment towers and shopping malls stand next to historic mosques and palaces.
