Welcome to Kudus

The town is moderately attractive, with an elongated main street dominated by a huge tobacco factory. This is where the first kretek (clove cigarettes) were produced, and today Kudus is still a stronghold of kretek production – there are said to be 25 factories in the town and panniers of green leaves seem to be bulging from every truck in the dry season. Sukun, a manufacturer outside of town, still produces rokok klobot (clove tobacco rolled in corn leaves).
