Indonesia’s second-largest city, Surabaya is a vibrant metropolis and a thriving economic center, that has seen a wave of new developments. Located in East Java, it was one of the first port cities in Southeast Asia and is Indonesia’s hub for all shipments to and from regions east of Java to the present day, thus dubbed the ‘Gateway to the East’. The city blends modern architecture with its colonial past and also has a vivid and lively Chinatown, which is one of the most popular visitor attractions.
