Nightlife

A plethora of bars, night clubs and discos await the visitor

A potpourri of diversions and distractions are available

“If you don’t keep your s— wired tight at all-times, I guaran G–D— tee you a trip home in a body bag.”

Sgt. Barnes in Oliver Stone’s Platoon

You can go to the movies. There are a lot of theaters in Surabaya. The better ones, best to read that as cleaner and safer, are the Mitra 21 chain. The three best are now at Ciputra World(on Mayjen Sungkono), SUTO’s(Surabaya Town Square and PTC(Pakuwon Trade Center), part of the aptly named SuperMal(no that’s not a typo), next is 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 may be a concern.

Other venues for high noise levels are shopping malls, especially Surabaya (formally Delta) Plaza on Jalan Pemuda.

Lido’s is on Mayjen Sungkono, across from the Happy Puppy Karaoke and next to the Kodak photo studio. The music is good and the food is quite good.

The Tavern in the Hotel Bumi(formerly 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)

Jimmy’s in the Mariott (formerly 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.

An important note from the management:

This page is a list of possibilities and perils. Please view this as equal parts caveat and endorsement.

That being said … Enjoy

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 a few years because I love this place and its people. Indonesians are generous, warm and intelligent people. Any society has its dark side. This page represents a hint of that duality.

You will always be judged by a different standard.

You are living in a fish bowl.

Accept it, and act accordingly.

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 Ride-sharing services exist in the major cities. Grab, Uber and Gojek. Add the apps to your phone once you arrive in Indonesia

Add the apps to your phone once you arrive in Indonesia

I like this place, but just use your head.

If you have any questions or comments, email me. If you want to be listed, contact me. If you have a concern about my opinion: contact me, or change my view with good service.

VISA:
The visa exemption was created to push the numbers of short time tourists, before that, everyone had to buy a VoA for 35 USD, even if you only wanted to stay for two weeks.

The easiest visa is the so called Visit Visa, which combines the former tourist visa, social visa and business visa, you can stay for 60 days and can extend it four times for 30 days at your local Imigrasi, so your full stay would be about 180 days without the need to leave Indonesia. This visa has to be applied for outside of Indonesia.

You can get it in Indonesian embassy in Singapore, Penang or even Kuala Lumpur, but KL can’t be recommended because they need four working days for a visa, while Singapore and Penang can do it over night.Visa Regulations for Visa on arrival Generally new visitors arrive at an international airport in Surabaya, Jakarta,  Denpasar or any of a handful of other Indonesian destinations.

Historic Surabaya.

Welcome to The City of Heroes

Surabaya is an ancient city, with a rich history.  It is a tale that has been written in the blood, hopes and accomplishments of the amazing people who have lived here. From the rich tapestry of Javanese culture, to the vibrant Madurese impact, and on to the interweaving of Indian, Arabic and Chinese cultures … Surabaya has always been a meeting place for imagination and destiny. A major shipping center, a transit port, and an international gateway … Indonesia’s second-largest city, and the capital of East Java, has a rich history and an exciting present waiting to be discovered. From poets to princes; from revolutionaries to teachers; Surabaya is truly the City of heroes.

Surabaya is a port city, and has been a major player in, and shaper of, events since the thirteenth century when the city came into its own. At a time when Madura and Kediri were kingdoms and Raden Wijaya had just repelled(1292-1293) an invasion by the forces of the aged Kublai Khan, Surabaya became a center of trade.  The Majapahit Empire came into being. They were a military and economic powerhouse and largely shaped the physical reality of the Indonesia we know today.

Majapahit, and thus Surabaya, eventually fell to Mataram and then the Mataram to the Dutch. From within Surabaya the spirit of independence stayed strong and would flare again. From Orange Hotel(later renamed Majapahit) to Red Bridge(Jembatan Merah) Surabaya would be the stage for many of the pivotal moments of the struggle for independence.

Surabaya is a few hours from some of the most amazing beaches in the world, as well as near a thriving nightlife scene and plenty of restaurants, shops, and other activities.

The capital of East Java, and a gateway to both Central Java and West Java. Surabaya exists as a historic, cultural and economic touchstone, important to the archipelago.

Why do people join TEFL courses?

There are a few reasons to join a TEFL/TESOL course: need; curiosity; social-interaction; travel and desired lifestyle; government regulations, or perhaps a lack of other options.

You may already be familiar with the following explanation, but it bears repeating. TEFL means Teaching English as a Foreign Language, and it’s a certification that is required by learning institutions to teach abroad. TESOL is Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages.

Need is easy enough to explain. You need a job, or you need a TESOL qualification to get or keep a job. It doesn’t seem like that long ago that qualifications weren’t necessary for most positions and teaching was a way to spend a year or two traveling.  As the need for English became more pronounced and the price for courses and individual lessons increased, so did the expectation and demand that teachers have quantifiable training. Certain positions needed more qualifications. Teachers who had been teaching for a few years realized that they needed a grounding in methodology. Flying by the seat of your pants will only take you so far.

Another reason may be what is beyond the next hill. We imagine life in another place, or just a chance to move to a new city or a different country. We imagine a different climate, a unique culture and a few extra stamps in our passports. What is it like to walk down a street in Cuba, or sip a drink in Miami’s South Beach? A Parisian café, A stroll through a morning market, an afternoon in a Milanese gallery, or photography in Beijing’s hutongs. Perhaps it’s a quick visit to South East Asia’s volcanic islands,  or do sparkling sandy beaches call?

Social interaction is a bit more difficult to define, only because the need is unique for each person. Some need music and close proximity, while some need solitude with others at a manageable distance.  Some want to be a stranger in a strange land, a James Bond or Lara Croft(gender notwithstanding) Others want to mix and blend. They want local colour, and they want to be at caught up in the energy and intensity of the moments they experience.

They are eager to experience how wonderful it can be to meet the many students, children, teenagers, and adult learners and learn what an actual school day is like. What are the routines of an office, or the mysteries or minutia of managing a home in a foreign city? To be able to share and compare. To earn an appreciation for a new life; or a better understanding of life back home. Talk to teachers, shop-owners, police officers, butchers, bakers and fellow risk-takers.

The desire to go beyond the gate begins as soon as we can move.  If we didn’t have that basic need to explore, we likely would have never been born. We get our passport, then we search online travel sites, Tumblr, Pinterest, and Facebook.  We Google volcano, beach, resort, palm tree, desert, mountain, or a tropical paradise. We long for the dance, the ceremony, the song or the solitude. Our reason for travel may be cultural, spiritual, intellectually or educational. We may hope to wear swim suits or anoraks, or at least a smile, in place of our normal attire or attitude.

Government regulations are the ironic glue that holds us all together. Whether you hope to teach or eventually sell pineapple pancakes and mocha-guava coffee smoothies you will need to understand the local red-tape. Visas, banking and eventually building a comfortable life are best done legally.  One of the requirements to teach, in countries that pay a living wage, is a TEFL/TESOL certificate.  The course norms are a recognized certificate that runs for four or five weeks over 120 hours. The course should include methodology and observed teaching practice. It should also be externally moderated. From your side, you want a safe environment, a comfortable place to stay and a cultural experience. In order to get a working visa, potential teachers in Indonesia have to be 25 years of age, have a BA, and have a TESL certificate.

A lack of other options sounds vaguely confrontational, or at least insulting. It’s not meant to be either.  Life is tougher than ever. Jobs are scarce and the prospect of never-ending drudge work is not appealing. Teaching overseas offers adventure, travel, social interaction, cultural exchange, and the chance to learn a language.  Certification may not increase your employment options at home, but it may be a prelude to graduate study or open your eyes to a new career, or perhaps entrepreneurial opportunities. Some teachers choose to stay for a couple of contracts, some move on to other countries, and some of us set roots and make a life here. We wish you luck with whichever path you choose.

Should you have any additional questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
