today is a small, sleepy town on East Java's north coast,
about 90 kilometres west of Surabaya. Four hundred years ago,
however, it was one of the island's principal seaports, active
in the spice trade and supporting a large population of foreign
merchants. Tuban's attractions, and there are many, are connected
mainly with its historical past, especially the period marking
the decline of the Hindu kingdom of Majapahit and the beginning
of the Islamic era in, the 15th century.
Tuban is located in a coastal and mountainous land surface,
with its total area of 183,902.29 Ha, by 1,007,986 people,
with the average population density 545 person/ km2. The number
of the population increases 1,15%/year.
The north coastal part of Tuban is very potential for its
fishery product, especially Banjar Subdistrict which
is now provided with the fish landing port supported by the
European Economic Society.
Compared to the southern part of the district, the middle
part is considerably mountainous and infertile, so it is suitable
for industrial estate.
Almost all of the parts of Tuban occupy the land surface about
25-100 m above the sea level (75.683 Ha/40,72%). 47,543 Ha
(25,58%) of the total area occupies 100 m and more whereas
the rest belongs to a coastal area which is about 65 km stretching
from the east to the west. In the south part, especially along
the river bank of Bengawan Solo is relatively fertile and
considerably as rice stock place for Tuban.
