Surabaya Heritage Track 2

If you search posts with hashtag SurabayaHeritageTrack, you’ll see pictures captured during the free tour provided by HouseofSampoerna.

Last Independence Day, I celebrated my country anniversary by joining the tour with some friends. The plan should have savored the cultural heritage of Hok Ang Kiong Temple and Escompto Bank. However, the tour moved to Tugu Pahlawan (Heroes Monument) (map). It was good timing since it was really matched to our Independence Celebration.

The tour guide was really informative. For every buildings I passed through, he told us the short story related to it. I felt smarter after finishing the tour. Yeah!

I didn’t have a chance to picture the building since I was inside the bus, but let them be some surprises for you if you want to join a tour someday :p
