TRIBUNBATAM.id - Minister of Tourism and Creative Economy (Menparekraf) Sandiaga Uno revealed that Bali is a favorite destination for foreign tourists from Russia, with a preference for quality holidays.
"Russian tourists before the Covid-19 pandemic were in the fourth place with the most visits to Bali, with a total of 300,000 to 400,000 tourists per year," Sandiaga said at the Weekly Press Briefing of the Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy (Kemenparekraf) which was held hybrid, Monday (7/4).
Meanwhile, during the span of January 1 to May 31, 2022, foreign tourists from Russia are also included in the top 10 most visits to Bali.
According to Sandiaga, this is because Russian tourists are interested and curious about beach activities.
"This is because they live in a landlocked area, where the north is too cold and the south is too far," he said.
In addition, he added, for the holiday preferences of Russian tourists, they usually choose trips with luxurious facilities.
The Minister of Tourism and Creative Economy said that his party had been communicated with the Russian Ambassador in Indonesia, to participate in assisting in facilitating the process in accordance with the duties and authorities of the Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy.
This is done, said Sandiaga, one of which aims to increase the length of stay of Russian tourists which has an impact on increasing spending.
In addition, the goal is to offer new and different tourist attractions in order to provide a new experience for Russian tourists.
