4.6 Million Tourists are Targeted to Visit Lampung Indonesia This Year
Kupastuntas.co, Bandar Lampung - The Tourism and Creative
Economy Office of Lampung Province is targeting as many as 4.6 million tourists
to visit tourist destinations in the local area in 2023.
Head of the Lampung Province Tourism and Creative Economy
Service, Bobby Irawan, said that his party is optimistic that the target set
can be realized as the spread of Covid-19 begins to slow down and the
government allows people to travel.
"In 2023, the target for tourist arrivals to Lampung is
around 4.6 million people. But we believe this will be exceeded because the
movement of people is currently increasing as Covid-19 is under control,"
he said when questioned, Thursday (26/ 1/2023).
According to him, before the Covid-19 pandemic, the number
of tourists visiting Lampung Province was able to reach 9 million people.
However, this number experienced a significant decrease when the Covid-19
pandemic began to attack.
"In the pre-Covid-19 pandemic, around 9.2 million
tourists visited, but in 2020 it has decreased considerably, only around 1.7 million
people. But in 2021 and 2022 it will start to increase. Last year our target
was only 2 million. and exceeded nearly 3 million people," he said.
He said that marine tourism is still a favorite place
visited by tourists. Where marine tourism in Lampung starts from Way Kambas,
Mount Krakatau, Lake Ranau, and the coast in Betung Bay to Pesawaran and Kiluan
Bay to beaches in the western region.
"Apart from that, our priority is to attract tourists,
one of which is building a tourist village. There are already several tourist
villages that have received awards from the ministry, such as Rigis Coffee
Village in West Lampung or Pahawang Village in Pesawaran," he said again.
In addition, currently Lampung Province is also initiating
the development of Bakauheni Harbor City which is expected to become one of the
favorite tourist spots in the local area.
"In April, the plan is to inaugurate the mosque, UMKM
center and renovation of the Siger tower. And what is no less important to
attract tourists is Krakatau Park in collaboration with Jatim Park. This will
become a new tourist spot and take advantage of the Eid holiday," he said.
