Things to do in Surabaya

Surabaya (Suroboyo) is locally believed to derive its name from the words "suro" (shark) and "boyo" (crocodile), two creatures which, in a local myth, fought each other in order to gain the title of "the strongest and most powerful animal" in the area. A ferocious fight resumed as the two animals bit each other. Finally, the shark was badly bitten and fled to the open sea, and the crocodile finally ruled the estuarine area that today is the city.

Surabaya is the second largest city after Jakarta. By the population for about 3 million people (by 2010), Surabaya has become the Metropolis city with numbers of diversities among the people, cultures, habits, and way of living. Moreover, Surabaya nowadays is already become the center of business, commerce, industry, and education in eastern Indonesia.

The city is known as Kota Pahlawan "city of heroes" due to the importance of the Battle of Surabaya for Indonesian independence during the Indonesian National Revolution. Surabaya became a major trading center under the Dutch colonial government and hosted the largest naval base in the colony. Until today, Surabaya is home to the Eastern Fleet, one of two fleets in the Indonesian Navy.
