He explained that the accessibility or infrastructure factor is one of the important things in increasing the expected number of tourist visits not only from Sumatra but also from Java.

"Hopefully those who come not only from Sumatra but also from Java. Because access is also close, Lampung is the entrance to Sumatra so it has its own charm that makes tourists want to visit," he said.

In addition, he also explained that the existence of Bakauheni Harbor City, which is currently being built by the Ministry of State Owned Enterprises, is the main attraction for increasing the number of tourist visits.

"When Bakauheni Harbor City is ready, it has the potential to bring in tourists. In tourism there are 3A's, namely attractions, accessibility and amenities. And its existence is one of the anglers of tourists," he explained.
