Try not to limit yourself to Probolinggo; this region features a treasure trove natural and man-made attractions just waiting to be explored. Paiton, 19 miles (31 kilometers) to the west, and Ngadisari, 20 miles (32 kilometers) to the northeast of Probolinggo are also worth checking out.
When it's time to spread your wings, why not visit the nearest regional area. Surabaya lies 45 miles (72 kilometers) away and features visitor attractions including Surabaya Town Square, Cheng Hoo Mosque and Sharp Bamboo Monument. Ensure you don't return to Probolinggo until you've stopped by Surabaya's Yos Sudarso Monument, Jalesveva Jayamahe Monument and Grahadi.
When the weather's great, why don't you explore East Java's open-air markets?. To learn about local culture, head straight to East Java's history museums.
Wildlife watching and bird watching are just some of the great other activities in the East Java area. Check out the region's alluring waterways. Swimming and boating are some of the popular ways to exercise here.
Make sure you take your tastebuds for a tour of East Java's restaurants and cafés. Take a tip from the locals and order lontong kupang (clam soup with rice cakes) or rawon (dark beef soup).
If you intend on arriving and departing by plane, it's handy to remember that the handiest major airport is Juanda Airport, 40 miles (64 kilometers) to the northwest of Probolinggo.
