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.
