The 10 New Bali's Project by Indonesia for New Tourism
An ambitious project to create 10 new Bali-like tourism
Bali has long been a popular holiday getaway for many 'Aussies' (Australians) and 'Kiwis' (New Zealanders), who live close by. But it's also well know for visitors from
other Asian, European and Americas countries. It's definitely Indonesia's main tourism hub.
The government of Indonesia have a strategic plan to increase the number of tourists visiting
its territory to 20 million by 2020. Building on the success of Bali destination, this ambitious goal will inject
investment across ten designated undeveloped natural hotspots, putting the infrastructure needed in place to
support the next phase of development.
|The 10 'New Bali' project has envisioned to create 10 new Indonesian tourism hubs by
bringing in an estimated 20 million tourists into the country.
Indonesia's most beautiful
The ‘10 New Bali’s’ will showcase some of Indonesia’s most beautiful areas – each targeted for their potential
and scope – to become outstanding tourist attractions.
Tourism figures for 2018 stood at 15.8 million, a 13 percent increase on the previous year. With an investment
plan now in place, the government looks set to reach or even exceed their target market by the 2020. (Get the full info in this PDF.)
The ripple effect of continued growth, will in turn create thousands of new jobs across industries,
increasing Indonesia's national GDP and raising the standards of living and opportunities of its local
population of 260 millions and growing.
Finally, this country with its land peppered by signature volcanos, fertile forests, mountain ranges, unique
flora and fauna and a rich cultural diversity shown in its plethora of indigenous architectural styles seen across
the territory, gets the recognition it deserves in terms of quality tourism development.
