East of Cibobas it’s 19km to Cianjur, a market town that’s famed throughout Java for the quality of its rice; indeed the town is enveloped by shimmering green paddy fields. Cianjur has a few sights of interest in the surrounding district, but most people are here to mix with locals as part of the highly successful homestay program.
You’ll find several banks on the main drag, Jl Cokroaminoto, and internet cafes are grouped together on Jl Siti Jenab.
