Chinese touristsIndonesia expects that the number of foreign tourist arrivals from China will register a marked increase as it has offered special historical destinations, boosted supportive policy and stepped up promotion, a senior tourism official said in Jakarta.

 
During an exclusive interview with Xinhua recently, Deputy for Overseas Promotion of the Indonesian Tourism Ministry. I Gde Pitana said, “This year we expect 2.1 million Chinese holiday makers visiting Indonesia, compared with last year’s target of 1.3 million arrivals.”
China and Indonesia have strong historical background which has become one of the main engines for the tourism industries in both countries, he said

 
The significant hike of the target of Chinese tourist arrivals this year is based on the country’s great tourism promotion, offer of some historical cultural destinations and events, and new visa on arrival policy which took effect in June 2015, as well as the special event of total solar eclipse that will be visible from parts of Indonesia, Pitana explained.
Indonesia sees China as huge potential market for its tourism industry in 2016.

 
Over 118 million Chinese people travel annually, but so far only a small number of them is tapped by the Southeast Asian region – 6 million by Thailand, 2 million by Singapore and 1.3 million by Indonesia, the official said.
