The Steel City

Cilegon is located on the Northwest coast of Java, at the mouth of the Sunda Strait. It is known as the “Steel City” – more steel comes out of Cilegon than anywhere else in Southeast Asia. The Krakatau steel plant, named after a nearby volcano, is the largest employer in Cilegon, and is well known throughout Indonesia.

Spend your free time shopping at one of the city’s many malls, or take a trip to one of the nearby beaches for a swim. Opportunities for the adventurous abound in the city, with numerous renowned tourism destinations located in its surrounds. While not a famed tourist attraction in its own right, Cilegon is a perfect stopping-off point for those wishing to explore West Java and Sumatra.
