Mangrove Tourism in Surabaya

This relatively new tourist place for local, dedicated to ecotourism on mangrove area in Surabaya.
Located in the far east, there is no public transportation to this place. About 30 minutes drive from IKIRU.

Pasar Krukah, a traditional local market just 5 minutes away

Pasar Krukah, or Krukah market, is a traditional market located just 5 minutes walking away from IKIRU, across the south main road.
It's a nice morning stroll before breakfast to see the real local life.
It's quite interesting since just across the south main road you can see completely different social level of local life, by walking around the kampong gang (alleys).
The market opens daily early morning till about 9AM.
