    Yes it is generally safe (the greatest danger - as always - is being injured in a vehicle accident, but that's as true of Surabaya as it is of New York).
    Some western governments - such as Australia - are critical of the threat of terrorist attack in Indonesia (and rightly so, because their citizens are the ones who get targeted) and east Java seems to be the place where the radical groups are based. The latest assessment from crisis management groups is that the mass-killing style of attack (ie Bali bombing) is being replaced with "individual jihad" aimed at local targets such as police or Christian groups.
    The chances of you being coincidentally caught up in one of those attacks is extremely remote. about 7 years ago
