Indonesia’s destination development


Key hotspots targeted by tourism to undergo extensive improvements.

The Indonesian government plans to improve and develop key strategic tourism hotspots next year.

To begin, the Tourism and Creative Economy Ministry will conduct elaborate and detailed studies of Sanur in Denpasar, Batur in the Bangli regency and Menjangan in the Buleleng regency, the Jakarta Post reported.

Research into these three primary areas will help produce a blueprint to assist in the improvement of a total of 16 tourism destinations throughout the country, prioritised for development through 2014.

“Despite possessing huge potential, some of these destinations have weak planning, infrastructure, facilities and promotional packaging… so, we need to encourage their development,” Ministry director of destination planning and tourism investment Lokot Ahmad Enda said.

“We choose to improve destinations that are already operating so that they can grow on the right track and serve as examples to be followed by others.”

The entire project is expected to be carried out over the next 15-20 years.
