After days of doing adventure tours in West Java with Java Private Tour, I finally arrived in Cirebon City to explore the arts, culture and history of the Kasepuhan palace in Cirebon, a historical place which in my opinion is very interesting, I am quite happy to be able to witness directly the ornaments of buildings and historical items that have a blend of Chinese, Indian and Indonesian. However, it is unfortunate because the tour guide service from the management at the Kasepuhan Cirebon palace has limitations in English communication, fortunately when I visited this place I was accompanied by a crew from Java Private Tour so that the crew from Java Private Tour could translate Indonesian and Cirebon regional accent into English, which finally made me understand the storyline about history, art and culture that was conveyed, and I very enjoy this tour.

The place is quite nice it seems the same one with the historical palace in Yogyakarta. But they need to add more guides who can speaks english better since I cant really understand what they’re trying to explain as they now little about English. However, all those historical stuffs there are amazing

When you came to Cirebon I think you have to visit this place. Since this is one of the Keraton in Cirebon. Very interesting visiting it. Especially they have "Museum Pusaka". In that musem you can see traditional Cirebon Weapon and some ceramic that given from China.

Cirebon is not the only city with a "keraton" (sultan's palace). Compared with the somptuous keraton of Yogyakarta this palace in Cirebon may look a bit minimal, but on walk with a local guide (speaks unfortunately only Bahasa Indonesia) the tourist can discover many interesting facts.
