Admiration beauty panorama and coolness it’s chilly, making me repeatedly wrote about the city of Malang.
However, it feels less complete if I frequently review other city, but rarely introduce my birthplace, the town of Sidoarjo. Not as cool as the hapless, even tend to be hot, Sidoarjo is located to the South of Surabaya. Seen from the extent of the Sidoarjo region span, also dont let alone Poor Surabaya acres known as the second largest city in Indonesia.
Though small, Sidoarjo is a primary buffer Surabaya lho.

That’s what makes things Sidoarjo is better known as an industrial area. From some sectors of the economy, fishing is the main source of economy of Sidoarjo. In addition, there is also a large industrial, services and small industries that develop good, be a source of kemapanan people. On the one hand, the progress of development in the industry, is not coupled with the improvement of tourist facilities are adequate. The presence of the Mall and some modern entertainment center, perhaps the only suitable to be momentary entertainment at weekends. Effects, when the holiday season is long, mostly citizens of Sidoarjo prefer tour to outside areas such as Poor Kingdom to Bali.
Thus, what is not there are interesting places to visit in Medan?
I always believe, every place has its own uniqueness and can become tourism potential if promoted and supported by various parties. So too with Sidoarjo. The lack of socialization interesting places make some tourist potential of less known, even by its own citizens. In fact, some of the following places is very potential for nature tourism, culture, history, shopping to cuisine – which I’m sure is not less interesting with other areas in Indonesia.

Even though it has not been so popular, tourism potential in Sidoarjo in my opinion need to be included in the tourist destinations of everyone who is hungry for uniqueness. The question of access is also not difficult. If by air, you can go down at Juanda international airport. If by land, please choose a bus directly down at the Bus Terminal Purabaya. Indeed, the second busiest airport in Indonesia and the largest bus terminal in Southeast Asia is often considered the dismissal route to Surabaya.

Therefore, if you have already arrived at the terminal or the airport, stay continue browsing using Trans Sidoarjo towards one of the unique places.
