SEMARANG:The Central Java Culture and Tourism Office chief Maryanto will focus on attracting foreign tourists through cruises. This was seen to be the most effective way to increase international tourists.
In 2011, there were 12 cruises entering Central Java, carrying at least 15,000 foreign tourists from Europe and the US. Maryanto is convinced that the target to bring in 24, even 30 yachts this year, will be achieved. Last year, only 18 yachts sailed in the province.
