Hong Kong is one of Indonesia’s potential markets as the average spending of Hong Kong tourists coming to Indonesia is around $1,340 per visit.
However, number of tourists from Hong Kong has been declining. Until September this year, the number of Hong Kong tourists in Indonesia was 64,634, down 1.1 percent from 2016. The ministry is targeting to welcome 107,000 Hong Kong tourists this year.
There will be 10 destinations and regional tourism brands presented to visitors such as Colorful Medan, Wonderful Riau Islands, Enjoy Jakarta, Stunning Bandung, Java Cultural Wonders, Majestic Banyuwangi, Friendly Lombok, Explore Makassar, Coral Wonders for Bunaken, Wakatobi, Raja Ampat and Bali the Island of the Gods.
Bali is one of the world’s most popular destinations, with the island having everything that tourists are looking for such as beaches, mountains, underwater beauty and culture.
The island has recently welcomed two world leaders namely the former United States President Barrack Obama and Saudi Arabia’s King Salman.
