There is a cracking morning market that is always well represented and attended, from which you can pick up virtually anything, at terrific bargain prices. The city's Town Hall has a touch of Dutch magic about it, built in an Art-Deco style and with a very distinctive golden prawn as a representation in the buildings motif, set against a classic white background on the rest of the structure. There is a definite charm associated with the Keraton Kasepuhan Palace; it is only small but really appealing. There seems to be a bit of a mixture of cultures within the design, but strangely, the Indonesian, Chinese, European and Arabic influences, all work.
You must experience the Plangon Forest, around 15 kilometres from Cirebon. There are tombs there of Kings and Princes from ancient Kanoman, in a small complex at the top of a sharp hill. Long-tailed macaques roam freely and show no fear of human contact, indeed they can be real pests, but on the whole they are good fun. The city is renowned for several dishes such as tahu gejrot, a kind of fried tofu in ground garlic and ayam panggang, their version of barbecue chicken.
