TRIBUNBATAM.id - Sport tourism is increasingly being developed in Indonesia, especially in a number of areas.
Minister of Tourism and Creative Economy (Menparekraf) Sandiaga Uno revealed that currently his party is promoting five super priority destinations (DSP) and Bali to become a place for sport tourism.
"We are promoting five super priority destinations (DSP), namely Lake Toba, Borobudur, Mandalika, Labuan Bajo, and Likupang," said Sandiaga during a press conference with Mesut Ozil at the Sapta Pesona Building, Jakarta, Wednesday (5/25).
His party encourages national and international sporting events in the five DSPs and in Bali, especially as part of the G20.
Menparekraf continued, there are a number of sporting events that are currently scheduled and spread across several destinations.
For the Marathon, for example, in addition to Borobudur, it is in Bali and also in Bandung. Meanwhile, the Triathlon is also divided into several destinations.
"Especially in Lake Toba, it has been designed for the F1H20 event," said Sandiaga.
In addition, he said, cycling events are currently also popular.
As for beach game-based events, it is also one of the branches that Kemenparekraf wants to encourage.
Encourage sports-based tourism, especially football
Menparekraf Sandiaga explained that he saw more and more sporting events and sports-based tourism in the country.
This, according to him, has an effect on the high public interest in sport tourism.
"This weekend, we will hold the Indonesia Triathlon Series in Belitung, in the same week we will host the World Surf League in Banyuwangi, and the following week there will be Surfing on the West Coast and Nias," said the Menparekraf.
In addition, he added, Indonesia will also host several major events, including marathons, swimming and cycling.
He believes that sports games will attract more fans.
