Everything sold at an airport is bloody expensive. If you’d ever wondered how much they mark prices up, well, it could be 200% or more. No kidding.
See some examples of prices at Juanda international airport in Surabaya:
Bogasari milkfish is priced based on weight: Rp 70,000-Rp 100,000
Coconut flakes (srundeng): Rp 30,000
Regular crackers (krupuk) Rp 30,000-Rp 85,000
This sh*tty overlysweet coffee is Rp 24,000, taken straight from that icky cheap Nescafe #coffee machine often found at 7-Eleven or Circle K 🙄
… but I’d still prefer this place over Starbucks (coffee priced Rp 60,000 and up) because they are less crowded & has plenty of power outlets!
Tip: If you want to spend more than an hour of waiting for eating & drinking, just head to the nearest lounge. They only charge Rp 150,000 per person (but of course it’s free for some Indonesia’s bank credit card holders). #juanda #surabaya #TGIF #airport #travel
