Tourism Hotspots
of the ’10 New Bali’ Initiative

Indonesia's strategic tourism plan
to increase the number of tourists coming to the country

If you are a regular visitor to the South East Asia destinations, you will know that Bali has been an attractive tourist destination in Indonesia for many years. The government of Indonesia has decided to build on the success of Bali and created an ambitious goal of reaching 20 million visitors to the territory by the year 2020. This is going to be accomplished by injecting investment across ten designated undeveloped natural hotspots, putting the infrastructure needed in place to support the next phase of tourism development.

An infographic has been created online, outlining this ambitious plan, which you can view here as .jpg, or download as PDF here (1.8MB).
