Indonesian tourismThe Tourism Ministry of Indonesia is eyeing on the travellers from South Asian countries in the efforts to achieve its targets of 17 million foreign tourists arrival from the neighbouring countries like China, Japan and India.

 

 

The Tourism Ministry Southeast Asia market promotion head Rizki Handayani Mustafa in Mangapura, Bali said that they see a huge potentiality of tourists from Singapore, Malaysia, the Philippines, Brunei and Vietnam.

 

 

Rizki Handayani Mustafa said that there are many Malaysians, who were reluctant to visit Bali because they worried that it would be difficult to get halal food in the resort island.

 

 

Meanwhile, she added, that promotion was also needed because many Malaysians still did know about tourist destinations in Indonesia. They need to distribute brochures about Bali tourism in Malaysia that also inform about the places where they can easily get halal food.

 

 

There are many destinations in Indonesia could become travel destinations for tourists from Southeast Asian countries because of the proximity. To help Bali tourism recover, they need to eye markets in neighboring countries.

 

 

Meanwhile, for Thailand, Indonesia needed to approach aviation firms and tourism operators because the country is also major tourism destination for international tourists.

 

 

Rizki Handayani Mustafa also acknowledged that the average length of stay of Southeast Asian tourists was only about three to four days, but their spending was promising, which gives a vast revenue to the tourism economy.
