With the construction of the port, the Kendal-karimunjawa route is expected to be widely used by tourists from the west of the island of Java, because of the ease of transportation to this port. We only need to take a short vehicle from Semarang airport or Semarang station, and we have arrived Kendal Harbor.
So that with the opening of the ship route from Kendal to Karimun Jawa, it is hoped that it can spur tourist visits, here is the complete information that we quoted from the Suara Desa website:
SUARADESA , KARIMUNJAWA – The opening of a new route for boat trips from Tanjung Kendal Port to Karimunjawa will increase the number of tourist visits to the area.
After the opening of the new route, it is estimated that there will be a large potential for business opportunities. This was conveyed, some time ago, during the introduction of the Kendal-Karimunjawa Marine Tourism Program, in Tirtoarum Baru Kendal.
Eko Heru Widaryanto, a tourism activist in Karimunjawa, said that one of the famous tourist attractions in Central Java is Karimunjawa. Its existence still requires a large supply of various kinds of goods, both food products, beverages, clothing and crafts.
“Until now the needs in Karimunjawa are supplied from outside Karimunjawa, so this can be a great opportunity for someone who wants to open a business there,” he said, in an official statement, some time ago.
According to Heru, his party wants to invite Kendal business actors to take this business opportunity. He is ready to take prospective entrepreneurs to Karimunjawa, to see firsthand the potential there.
“Hopefully, SMEs in Kendal can take this business opportunity. There is still a great opportunity to take advantage of the existing businesses there,” he explained.
Meanwhile, the Secretary of the Kendal Transportation Service, Wiwid Andaryanto, revealed that Karimunjawa is one of four tourist attractions in Central Java that are used as the National Tourist Destination Program, in addition to Nusa Kambangan, Borobudur and Sangiran.
“Karimunjawa is one of the priorities for the government to become a big tourist attraction, so the opportunity to run a business there, of course, is also getting bigger,” he said.
