Arfan Habibi

Abstract


The tourism sector is a potential sector to be developed as a source of regional income. This is evidenced by the increase in the number of foreign tourist visits to Indonesia from Janauari to November 2018, an increase of 11.6 percent. One area that has local potential for tourist attraction to be developed is Brebes Regency, Central Java Province, Indonesia. This study aims to optimize the rest area of Pejagan-Pemalang KM 260 as a result of the revitalization of the former Dutch East Indies colonial-owned Banjaratma Sugar Factory building which is being built by the Government in Brebes. The method used in this study with a qualitative approach is a qualitative descriptive analysis method through observation, interviews, documentation, and secondary sources. Through the participation of the community by participating in introducing local wisdom from the local food and culture typical of Brebes which will be exhibited in the former rest area of the Banjaratma Sugar Factory, it will support tourism-based cultural heritage conservation in Brebes. The existence of community participation also needs support from various related parties who will also maintain the existence of cultural heritage in the global era and have an impact on the economic growth of the sustainable Brebes Regency community.
