InterNations — A Community for American Expats in Surabaya

Hello to all Americans in Surabaya! Are you interested in getting to know fellow expats in Surabaya? Looking for advice from other Americans, e.g. wondering if there are any bars in Surabaya which will be showing your favorite baseball or American football team’s upcoming match or where to go in town for st■ turkey?

There’s no doubt about it: Surabaya’s stunning landmarks and natural charms make it more than just a business destination. The sprawling metropolis is a vibrant city known for being one of the important entertainment, financial, industrial, transportation, and commercial hubs of the Indonesian archipelago but also for its delicious local food, rich culture, and much more! With the Suroboyo, shuttle, city bus services, Anggunas (shared taxis), pedicabs (cycle rickshaws), and commuter rail services, navigating your way around the city from one place to the next is simple. This also means that if you don’t want to live among the hustle and bustle of the center, you can enjoy a quieter life in more residential areas of Surabaya such as Kenjeran, for example, which are a 20-minute drive away from Surabaya’s center.

Although Surabaya has lots to offer, you might be wondering where and how you can meet other Americans in the city. Luckily, InterNations is here to make this easier for you! You’re warmly invited to join the InterNations community. Within our international network in Surabaya, there’s a vibrant circle of American expats from all regions of USA, including New York City, Los Angeles, and beyond.
