Tourism; Tourist Attraction; Content Based Filtering; Cosine Similarity


Indonesia is a country with a high level of tourism, with natural beauty and historical places and other tourist destinations that continue to develop from year to year. Java Island is one of the islands visited by many tourists with various tourist attractions. Currently, many tourists like to travel, but during holidays tourists are confused about which tourist destination to visit. With advances in internet technology and the abundance of information in online media, it can make it easier for tourists to find information, but because there is so much information provided, it will make tourists confused about deciding and choosing a place. A tourist recommendation application is very necessary to provide good recommendation accuracy to make it easier for tourists to find tourist destinations according to the desired category. To get the best results, the Content Based Filtering method using Cosine Similarity used in this research will provide several tourist recommendations according to the level of similarity of various cities on the island of Java.
