Get around By taxi Taxis are plentiful on the streets of Surabaya.

Some taxis are not renowned for their reliability so stick to the well known firms: Blue Bird Group +62 31 3721234, Orenz Taxi +62 31 8799999, Silver and Express. Always insist on a metered fare, though the above firms will generally turn theirs on as a matter of course. Figure on Rp 20,000 for a cross-town trip and Rp 70,000 to the airport. Fares for almost all firms are Rp 5000 flag fall (including the first kilometer) and Rp 325 for every subsequent 100m or minute stuck in traffic. Most companies apply a minimum fare for phone orders ranging from Rp 10,000 (Orenz and Silver) to Rp 25,000 (Blue Bird). For taxis hailed from the street or taken from most ranks, this minimum doesn't apply so just pay what the meter reads. Fares are always rounded up to the nearest Rp 1000, and small tips are appreciated (though not mandatory). If the meter reads less than Rp 10,000, it is considered polite to round the fare up to this. A trip from Stasiun Gubeng to Pasar Keputran should cost around RP 20,000. By train Commuter city trains are extremely limited, serving some parts of Surabaya and Sidoarjo. Train Stations in Surabaya

[edit]By bus

This is a large populous city and buses are usually crowded. There are two class of bus: standard buses which are usually very full and patas buses (supposed to be first class, but it is still... a bus.) [edit]By minibus Bemos in East Java are sometimes called Angkot or Mikrolet. They are plentiful in Surabaya and can be hailed fairly randomly. Angguna (Angkutan Serba Guna or multi purpose transport) are basically non-airconditioned, non metred (bargain the price) taxis. This makes them cheaper than taxis but they are often in a poor state of repair.

MERITUS SURABAYA: Jalan Basuki Rahmat 67 - 73, Surabaya Indonesia 60271 T (62 31) 535 1555 | F (62 31) 535 0666 E Stay Safe As with any big city, never let your guard down, because big cities such as Surabaya have a reputation among Indonesians for a mid crime rate. That said, Surabaya has few real dangers for visitors apart from the perils of crossing the very busy roads (the secret is to raise an arm while crossing, and to progress with a predictable speed and bearing, allowing the traffic to flow around you). Don't walk on the streets, especially at night other than the CBD area, if you can avoid it since you won't have anything to sightsee. Bring along your face mask if you travel by foot during rush hour since the traffic will be chaos and the air pollution is bad. (Around 4.30 PM to 6.30 PM) Be polite to the people, since Surabayans tend to swear easily

which are very common. Do not easily trust people you have just met, even if they look friendly. [edit]Stay Healthy Surabaya has hospitals with 24 hr emergency rooms Unit Gawat Darurat (UDG) (ER)

[edit]Contact [edit]By phone The international code for Indonesia is +62. Local Surabaya phone numbers will start +62 31 xxx xxxx or +62 31 xxxx xxxx for the CDMA provider or +62 8xx xxxx xxxx for the GSM provider.

There are four main telecommunication providers in Surabaya: Telkom,Telkomsel, Indosat, and XL. To make an international call from Surabaya, dial the access code 001 (for Indosat), 007 (for Telkom/Telkomsel), or 008 (for Indosat), followed by the country code, area code and party's number. Recently the providers have started offering cheaper rates for calls using Internet telephony routes (VOIP). The access codes for this cheaper service are 01016 for Indosat provider and 01017 for Telkom and Telkomsel provider. [edit]By net If you have your own laptop, it may run free wifi networks at many malls. Ask at the information desk for access codes. Free hotspots are also available in most restaurants and cafes. Several hotels also provide free hotspots in their lobby. All major hotels provide internet access in one or more ways; simply ask them about this when you make your booking. Alternatively, if you have a compatible 3G mobile phone and a laptop, tethering to your PC is the quickest way to gain internet access although speeds might not impress. Note that prepaid SIM cards can be purchased very easily and cheaply, and that service activation is completed on the user's phone very quickly. Once activated, recharge with credits as necessary. Internet access is usually available at this stage; refer to your phone's user manual for tethering instructions. Operators will usually offerinternet packets that offer cheaper access fees - instructions to access these services are available in the booklet that comes with your SIM card (i.e. XL's services are accessible by dialing *123#). BlackBerry Internet Service is readily available and can be registered similarly on the prepaid SIM. Internet cafes are available in many parts of the city with a price of Rp 4,000-Rp 5,000 per hour. However, most of them only have dial-up capabilities. Most of the internet cafes can be found around universities, and in most shopping malls. Internet speeds in Surabaya are rarely fast, regardless of your connection. They are usually sufficient to make decent Skype voice calls, although HD

video calling may not be possible. Temporarily disabling software updates (Windows Update, security software updates, Adobe Updater, etc.) may help maximise access speeds.
