Enjoyed my walk along the river. The monument/fountain is situated in a small skate park beside the river.

Just something to see as you pass over the bridge while walking through the city if you are staying in the area. If you go to the Grand City mall it is right behind it. Be sure to check out the graffiti on the wall across the river from it. There is a pedestrian walkway. Its where you can get... More

It is in the center of a main road and there aren't much places to see around it. A lot of people are there at night so it's better to go at day or in the afternoon.

This monument is stand right in front of the Kebun Binatang zoo where you can see the famous Komodo dragon. The statue unfold the fairy-tale of this city, where the white shark fight with the crocodile. The details of both shark and crocodile statue is terrific. Nothing much to do here but it's a good place for quick-looking or taking... More

This monument is an attraction that is suitable for a free, quick visit. There isn't really anything to do here, but you can go to the zoo which is right next to it. I thought it was kind of a strange monument, but it's also kinda cool because of the detail and the size of it. Just be aware that... More

Passed by the huge statue of shark and crocodile (suro & boyo) which has become the symbol of the city. quite many visitors take their time to take pictures in front of it so as to complete their trip to Surabaya.

Surabaya city gets its name after two deadly water dwellers- the shark (sura) and the crocodile (buoyo). Strange because Solomon Islands where I presently live also has the shark and crocodile as symbols on its coat of arms.
