Enjoy a panoramic tour of Surabaya with stops at attractions that reveal unusual aspects of East Java’s culture, history and religious leanings.


After departing from the pier, you will soon arrive in the heart of Surabaya for a tour of the House of Sampoerna. The Dutch colonial-style compound of buildings was built in the 19th century as an orphanage, but was later converted into a theater and then into a cigarette factory and museum. At the museum, guests can see a hall with some traditional machines for rolling the cigarettes, where, in the past, hundreds of women hand rolled, trimmed and packed the Dji Sam Soe brand (banned from most countries as the tar content is so strong). The fastest rollers here churned out 325 cigarettes an hour, their fingers a blur of motion.


A panoramic drive takes you to Kenjeran, where you will pause at Sanggar Agung, a Chinese temple that features a large statue of Lord Brahma, the Hindu god of creation. The four faces of the gold-veneered statue symbolize the sacred knowledge expressed in the four Vedas, the oldest Hindu texts. Brahma’s four hands holds icons such as a scepter. As you meander about the grounds, you will also see figures of other important deities.


A traditional Indonesian lunch follows at the Majapahit Hotel, a five-star resort that has been an institution in Surabaya for more than 100 years. Designed by the architect responsible for Singapore’s famed Raffles Hotel, the Majapahit exudes an elegant colonial atmosphere.
