Day 5 - 6: Surabaya

The Heroic City
Surabaya is well known as the Heroic City of Indonesia. Many great wars were fought here to achieve their independence from foreign entities.

As a result, there are many monuments around the city to commemorate the bravery and sacrifices of their people in those wars.

Tugu Pahlawan (Heroes Monument)

The most important landmark in Surabaya.

Monumen Bambu Runcing (Sharpened Bamboo Monument)

Sharpened bamboo was the traditional weapon of Indonesians.

Monumen Perjuangan Polri (Police Force Monument)

Don't know the name, anyone can advise?

The quality of the pictures here were not very good because we took them from the moving car.

BG Junction
One of the newer malls in Surabaya.

The Empire Palace
This building is so grand, I thought it was a hotel or something. It turns out to be a multi function venue, very popular for wedding celebration.

Tunjungan Plaza
It has been around for very long but still very popular with the locals. It is one of the upscale malls with tenants like Sogo and many international labels.

We had Texas Fried Chicken in Tunjungan Plaza. It is my favourite fried chicken. :) I must have this everytime I go back to Indonesia.

Texas Fried Chicken, not as oily as KFC.

Hubby was sick afterwards so we didn't go out much for a few days.
