Today is the last day of my 12 days exploring East Java, starting from Bromo, Madakaripura Waterfall, Camping at Sempu Island, To the top of highest mount ins Java : Semeru, until now I will end this trip by city exploring Surabaya and Bangkalan Madura. From the last two place I mentioned, we can guess the landmark I visit here. The landmark is the National Bridge Suramadu.
This prestigious bridge was built to accelerate the city development in Madura Island. This bridge was first opened for public in 2003 and was the longest bridge ever built in Indonesia, approximately 5.4km in length. This record will be defeated if Sunda strait bridge is built. This bridge will become more attractive in the night, thanks to the LED light that reflecting various colors onto the bridge pillars. The scenery will be visible from Kenjeran Beach, and I assumed it will be more beautiful if we enjoyed it on the bridge itself. But, there is a ban of intentionally stopping the vehicle in the middle of the bridge.
A bit hide and seek game with the highway patrol, we managed to stopped long enough to take pictures of ourselves on the colorful lighted bridge before the patrol reached us.
