Shopping Mall- The life of today’s urban communities cannot be separated from the symbols of modernization such as shopping centers. Nowadays, people in the city are doing refreshing not by going to tourist objects, but simply going to the mall. Especially in big cities like Jakarta and Surabaya, malls will be easy to find in every inch of land. Like Jakarta, Surabaya’s biggest mall is never empty of visitors, especially on weekends.
In the ’90s to early 2000s, we may only know Tunjungan Plaza or commonly called TP by local people. But now when visiting the City of Heroes, we will find several large malls or shopping centers there. You can visit many malls in Surabaya. Similar to the capital city of Jakarta, Surabaya has turned into a mall city that is ready to pamper anyone.
As a recommendation for those of you who are or will visit the city of crocodiles, here are some of Surabaya’s largest malls that are suitable for modern shopping tourism.
List of 7 Biggest Shopping Centers in Surabaya
1. Ciputra World Surabaya
Ciputra World Surabaya is the largest mall in the city of Surabaya with an area of 7.7 hectares with the longest escalator in Southeast Asia. The name Ciputra itself is actually not new in the property world, so it is not surprising that this mall was built grandly and luxuriously. Many foreign tenants are ready to entertain collectors of branded goods such as LV, Armani, and many more.
2. Pakuwon Mall
A shopping center with a very luxurious architectural design designed by DP Architecture from Singapore. In addition to shopping at the biggest mall in Surabaya, we can also do gym sports, drink coffee, watch movies or just eat. You can also invite children to enjoy exciting rides at Pakuwon Mall.
3. Tunjungan Plaza
This is a legend mall that has existed for a long time and many people from outside Surabaya know it.
