I like the atmosphere of this place. It felt so free by being there. Once we reached the top of the museum, we could see world around us from each corner. I like to see the ships around and wondered how it felt if I could go shipping one day around the world. We could even go on board on... More

You can see this beautiful statue if you take the passenger ferry from Madura to Surabaya. But as it is located within a naval complex if you want to see it up close, you are required to have a permit.

Back when this statue was built, it was perceived as a future tourist destination and icon of Surabaya tourism. Unfortunately, being located in the middle of active naval base, complete with its tight security and series of security checkpoints, it means that very little tourists could visit this place. Only those that have access to the inside of naval base... More
