Thinking about visiting the city of Cirebon in West Java, only around 3.5 hours from Jakarta by car? The city administration has released an app that helps visitors plan their trip with information on where to go and what to eat.

Named Cirebon Wistakon, the app provides information in 10 categories: Attractions, Food, Hotels, Shopping, Events & News, Favorites, Religion, Healthcare, Finances and Services.

Although reported that some of the categories are currently still empty, the Attractions category contains 10 places, namely Taman Sari Gua Sunyaragi, Kacirebonan Palace, Wisata Kera Plangon, Kanoman Cirebon Palace, Kasepohan Palace, British-American Tobacco Cirebon, Dewi Welas Asih Temple, Cirebon Waterland Ade Irma Suryani, Kejawanan Beach, and Setu Sedong. Meanwhile, the Food section recommends eateries for dishes like nasi jamblang (fried sambal for rice wrapped in teak leaves), mi koclok (a noodle dish), empal gentong (a curry-like beef soup) as well as signature snacks of Cirebon. There is also information on traditional and modern markets, such as Pasar Harjamukti, Pasar Batik Trusmi Cirebon, Pasar Pagi Cirebon, the Manisan Sinta souvenir shop and Pasar Mundu Cirebon.

"Cirebon Wistakon is available on the Google Play Store and connected with Google Maps," said Cirebon Statistics, Information and Communications Agency head Iing Daiman in Cirebon on Wednesday, adding that the app aimed to help visitors explore the city's tourist destinations. The app is part of the city's Smart City initiative. The Cirebon administration has released several apps and is aiming to develop eight more this year. (JakartaPost)
