Surabaya is the capital of East Java and the 2nd largest city in Indonesia.
The story goes that Surabaya's name derives from the Javanese words Suro, meaning shark, and Boyo, meaning crocodile. With over 6 million people, unpretentious Surabaya is the second-largest city in Indonesia.
Very tropical and you need to wear casual, light clothes: t-shirts, shorts, sandals or shoes. Temperatures vary little through the year, with daytime highs around 32-34 degrees Celsius, falling at night to 22-26 degrees. During the rainy season (November-April) be prepared for occasional flash floods and traffic jams, although it's not as bad as Jakarta.
The national language, Bahasa Indonesia, is the medium of government, commerce and education. There is a surprising amount of English visible in Surabaya on advertising and signs, and English is the most widely understood foreign language.
Surabaya's Juanda Airport (SUB) is the second busiest in the country after Jakarta's Soekarno-Hatta, with very frequent flights to Jakarta and other major Indonesian destinations, as well as some direct international flights to destinations including Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Penang, Bangkok, Hong Kong, Taipei, Guangzhou and Bandar Seri Begawan.
Surabaya has two main stations, Surabaya Pasar Turi and Surabaya Gubeng. Seats in eksekutif (first class) and bisnis (second class) for any intercity journey can be reserved up to 30 days in advance at any major railway station in Java.
Surabaya has frequent bus connections from all parts of East Java and from major cities in other parts of Java and beyond. The main bus terminal is at Bungurasih, about 10 km south of the city.
