We just got back from Surabaya yesterday during the weekend break. It was Wesak weekend hence it was super peak everywhere.
Bromo's view was fantastic and it was super duper cold too.
Do remember to bring warm clothings. We visited Sampoerna Museum and we were impressed. It's a really nice place and I would suggest everyone to drop by.
We didn't spend much time in Surabaya. We prebook a driver and a tour guide. They arrange accomodations of our choice and we were well taken care of.
WE also went to Songa for river rafting and it was very fun. You will get to see the village and their lifestyle. Really poor country. We saw men and women of all ages bathing and washing in the river naked. Of course,it was something new to us.
Bromo's view is fantastic. Overall, it was a fun trip and definitely memorable.
