Sidoarjo, Indonesia might be a familiar city to some, who have heard about the ongoing tragedy of the Sidoarjo Mud Flow, a mud volcano that has been spewing since 2006, buried whole villages and left tens of thousands of people displaced. While the cause of the mudflow has been blamed on either human error or the result of an earthquake, it has resulted in one bizarre and unexpected outcome - it made the city into somewhat of a tourist attraction, as people from around the world come to see the effects of this disaster. And Sidoarjo is not only known for its tragedy. Famous for its leather craft, it’s also home to the busiest airport in all of East Java, named Juanda International Airport.
