  • 1 Dampo Awang Beach (Pantai Dampo Awang, formerly Taman Rekreasi Pantai Kartini (Kartini Beach Recreation Park)). Here you can see the big Dampo Awang anchor. The story is when Sam Phoo Khong sailed in the Java Sea, his ship was hit by a big wave, heavily damaging the ship. The anchor chain is detached and stranded in Rembang.  
  • 2 Rembang Town Square (Alun-Alun Kota Rembang).
  • 3 Rembang Great Mosque (Masjid Agung Rembang). This mosque was built in 1814. There is a cemetery of the dukes of Rembang at the west side of the mosque.  
  • 4 R.A. Kartini Museum (Museum R.A. Kartini). R.A. Kartini was an Indonesian women's rights activist from Jepara and wife of the Regent of Rembang. The museum was the house of the Regent of Rembang. It contains Kartini's original writings and a painting of Kartini by his only son RM Susalit.  
  • 5 Grave of R.A. Kartini (Makam R.A. Kartini) (17.5 km south of Rembang, on the road to Blora).  





Try a drink made from syrup of the kawista fruit (Limonia acidissima), at least once anyway. This large, woody fruit thrives in the dry climate around the town. Tooth-achingly sweet, the syrup can be made palatable by cutting with soda, and maybe a squeeze of lime, to create a drink not dissimilar to Red Fanta.
