    Anggun is a thoughtful,and internationally-accomplished songstress originally from Indonesia. Nightlife A plethora of bars, nightclubs and discos await the visitor A potpourri of diversions and distractions are available “If you don’t keep your s— wired tight at all time I guaran G–D— tee you a trip home in a body bag.” Sgt. Barnes in You can go to the movies. There are a lot of theaters in Surabaya. The better ones, read that cleaner and safer, are the Mitra 21 chain.
    The two best are now at SUTO’s(Surabaya Town Square and PTC(Pakuwan Trade Center), part of the aptly named SuperMal(no that’s not a typo), next the Galaxy Mall,then on to the Tunjunang Plaza.
    For more active entertainment Surabaya is home to many nightclubs, disco, pubs and Karaoke bars.

    Most of the bars have live bands.
    The music is okay. The musicians are good, as are the singers. Rock on.
    The volume is the biggest concern.
    The range can only be described as serious ear bleed.
    Other venues for ear bleed noise levels are shopping malls, especially the Surabaya (formally Delta) Plaza on Jalan Pemuda.
    Pubs Colors on Jalan Sumatra The food’s good, and beer is cheap and it’s cold. The band is usually a bit loud and the service is good. Matchbox close to Colors, on Jalan Sumatra.
    Loud. Crowded and the place to party. Lido’s is on Mayjen Sungkono, across from the new Vida Supermarket and next to the Kodak photo studio. The music is good and the food is quite good.
    UPDATE 30/03/2006
    We were back a month ago and the food is as good as ever.
    This is a great place for good,inexpensive food. The Tavern in the Hyatt Good food, usually a decent band.
    A lot of unattached ladies. The bar at the Elmi Hotel Bring a jacket or sweater. It’s quite cool due to an over-active AC.
    The Elmi also has one of the nicer swimming pools in Surabaya. Discos and Nightclubs (Truthfully, I don’t know the difference)Vertical Six in the Mariott(formally the Westin) Hotel. It’s a bit pricey with a Rp 50,000 cover charge, but the band and the young crowd made for a good night out.

    Veranza Dangdut Mayjen Sungkono(go with a group) Hugo’s Club in the Sheraton(easily accessible from Tunjunang Plaza) Desperados in the Shangri-La Hotel Kowloon’s On the fourth floor,in the parking garage of Delta Plaza Restaurants The Rocks Jln.HR Muhammad
    Open everyday 1:00pm A good selection of Western and Indonesian food in a very modern and comfortable setting Good beer Beer, and mixed drinks A fish pond with the biggest catfish you’ll ever see Seating indoors and outdoors Served hot at affordable prices Ayen Jl Darmo Permai Selatan V/16 (031)7312709 Chinese and Seafood Food Court 5th floor Tunjunang Plaza A variety of Indonesian and Western fast food. Studio Food Court Near Cinema in PTC/Supermal. A variety of Indonesian and Western fast food. Indigo in the Majapahit Hotel G-Walk near Citraland.
    More a selection of places strung along a pleasant street. Pizza Hut in Tunjunang Plaza, Galaxy Mall,PTC,right on Maygen Sungkono Wendy’s in Galaxy Mall and in Suto’s(Surabaya Town Square McDonalds in Tunjunang Plaza, Galaxy Mall,right on Mayjen Sungkono, and at Delta Plaza KFC in Tunjunang Plaza,Galaxy Mall, and Delta Plaza Malay Village in PTC and Suto’s
    Great food,and a good place to get vegetarian dishes. Cafe Pisa near Hartono Electric, just after Papaya supermarket on the way to Supermal/PTC Excelso’s (Coffee bar and cafe) Serves decent snack food, including club sandwiches. They have great coffee, and darn good ice-cream.
    Try the Pearl tea!
    Beer is reasonably priced and cold. Located in Suto’s(Surabaya Town Square) PTC(the Supermal)Tunjunang Plaza, Galaxy Mall, and Delta Plaza. Guilin Restaurant
    Serving Authentic Chinese and Sea Food
    One of the nicer restaurants in Surabaya. A quiet, pleasant place with a nice range of well-prepared Chinese and Seafood dishes. Located on Jl. Musi. (next to Gelora Pancasila)

    I like this place. Just use your head. Annoyances … things that make you go grrrrrrr

    STOP ! Before YOU read any further Accept that sections of this one page are not a flattering, nor a complete, portrayal of Surabaya. It does not,nor is it meant to,reflect the entirety of Indonesian society.
    I have lived here for four years because I love this place and it’s people. Indonesians are generous,warm and intelligent people. Any society has it’s dark side. This page represents a hint of that duality. Proceed carefully. Aside from legal hassles there are scores of social taboos that we as foreigners couldn’t begin to comprehend.
    You will always be viewed as an outsider.
    You will always be judged by a different standard.
    You are living in a fish bowl. Accept it and act accordingly.
    If you partake in drugs, be warned … the minimum sentence is four years. Now listen closely Sparky; this is a foreign country.
    If you go to jail, don’t expect your family lawyer, your mommy or the A-TEAM to come riding to your rescue. Enjoy yourself, just be careful.

    Be Aware, be safe. Taxis are the best way to travel.
    Bluebird Taxi, Oreng Taxi and Silver taxi are your best choices.

    I have been in Asia since early 1996, and have taught in local schools, universities and language schools in South Korea, Indonesia, Thailand, and China. I was director of studies at language schools in China and a secondary school administrator in Indonesia. Along the way, I've been a teacher-trainer in Korea, China, Thailand, and Indonesia. More importantly, and I hope more efficiently, I've been a husband, father and grandfather.
