Why Heritage Track is special ?

The Surabaya Heritage Track program comprises a tour around North of Surabaya or also known as Old Surabaya on a city sightseeing bus. Using a bus that is modeled after the tram that once roamed across the city in the past, so called history trackers can enjoy and get to know the buildings and history of Surabaya, which is well known as the city of history, learn the "Babad Surabaya" traditional history, the rich culture and obtain information about other interesting places to visit in Surabaya.

What to explore at Heritage Track?

A tour guide points out and describes the most important historical buildings in the city in very decent English and you get to enjoy a nice ride around the city for free. It makes two stops: one in the Surabaya Tourist Information Office and the second at the Cultural Center where you will occasionally be able to see music and dance performances. Both Evan and Josh loved riding on the tram and were very attentively looking out the window. They both made very good friends in the tram and it seems like everyone wanted to hold them and take pictures of them.
