Indonesia: Tourist arrivals in Solo city in 2022 far exceeds target

 Monday, January 16, 2023 


With a total of 2.5 million tourists in 2022, tourism has bounced back in the Indonesian city of Solo (Surakarta) far exceeding the target of 1.3 million as estimated by the Culture and Tourism Agency of Solo.

Head of the Culture and Tourism of Solo, Aryo Widyandoko has attributed the rise in the tourist arrivals to many events including the wedding of President Joko Widodo’s youngest son, Kaesang Pangarep.

The city has also witnessed increase in the length of stays of tourists in hotels. During the Covid-19 pandemic in 2021, the length of stay of most tourists in hotels only reached 1.1 days. However, in the last year, the length of stay increased to 1.5 days.

“As for the target length of stay in 2023, the Mayor of Solo (Gibran Rakabuming Raka), expects the length to reach 2.7 days, and that is what we are pursuing,” said Aryo.

He was speaking during Solo Hotel Expo and Tourism Industry event held at Grand Atrium Solo Paragon Lifestyle Mall, Wednesday, January 11, 2023.

Aryo hoped to achieve these numbers with the reopening of several tourist attractions that have gone through revitalization such as the Taru Jurug Animal Park which is planned to reopen on January 27, 2023. Another attraction is the Pracima Park or Pracima Tuin in the Mangkunegaran Palace complex which will also be opened to the public on January 21.
