“Red bridge the heart of Surabaya's commercial during Dutch era..”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

This area is the town center during the Dutch era, this is the happening place! within distance of the bridge you could see Chinatown, Arabtown, and Dutch colonial offices still standing in perfect condition as comparison to Jakarta. The bridge is dull and boring, but its a good starting point for your adventure to explore Surabaya's old quarter and get a glimpse of how the city used to looked like before. If you are tired the mall is within walking distance, and the food offered there was ok and reasonably priced.

“Good picture if u take it from good angle”
Reviewed 29 January 2014

Good:
- easy access
- historical value
- good angle, good picture

Bad:
- just a bridge

The great things about Jembatan Merah is there are lots of 'Becak' or rickshaw so we can see old indonesian transportation mode. And there's dragon gate nearby, so if u take a shot of them it will become nice colorful picture. But nothing too special coz it's just a bridge.

“Nothing special”
Reviewed 14 November 2013

I was passing by jembatan merah when i went to sunan ampel at night. I took a becak/ rickshaw to sunan ampel from jembatan merah. Nothing special with this bridge. It's an ordinary bridge.
