batam-tourismCurrently the Tourism Ministry is promoting weekday tour packages to lure Singaporean tourists to visit Batam and Bintan.


The package plan was launched in August.


Till date this move has been supported by over 60 industry players in Bintam, Batam and Tanjung Pinang. Consequently over 250 types of tours have been made and over 10,500 promotional tour packages have been sold to Malaysian and Singaporean tourists.


Most of these travellers reportedly opt for gold, leisure and spa tour packages.


Rizki Handayani who is the Southeast Asia tourism promotion assistant deputy said that in the future they would continue promoting the tour packages in Malaysia and Singapore particularly in Johor Bahru.


Rizki added that when they had conducted a consumer selling event in Johro Bahry recently, a total of 200 tour packages were sold in the three days of the event.


The deputy minister of the ministry for overseas promotion I Gde Pitana explained that every tourists has its own low-season period where the hotel occupancy is below 60% and therefore it is where the weekday promotion can be implemented.


In Bali hotels are mostly fully booked on weekends but on weekdays the occupancy rate is around 60% and the rest of 40% is sold through the promotion as asserted by Pitana.
