This is stated in a number of data, as revealed by the Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy.

"When benchmarking with several countries in Asia, from various types of tourism activities, Indonesia is strong in two respects, namely halal tourism, as well as nature and adventure tourism," said Director of Special Interest Tourism of the Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy, Alexander Reyaan in Indonesia Tourism & Business Event Forum at JCC, Tuesday (8/16). 

According to Kemenparekraf data, this type of tourism development falls into the category of a very strong reputation.

Meanwhile, Indonesia's lowest reputation is in shopping tourism and medical tourism, when compared to other Asian countries.

Furthermore, he explained that Indonesia has a fairly good score in the Adventure Tourism Development Index (ATD) Report 2018.

From the aspect of natural resources, among developing countries, Indonesia ranks third.

The potential of Indonesia's natural wealth that can be used for adventure tourism is very diverse.

Mainly, there is rafting, mountain climbing, caving, to paragliding.

Alexander explained, these destinations are the most favorite, generally due to the ease of access, the availability of amenities, and interesting attractions.

This potential advantage is reinforced by the high chance of tourist interest in nature after the pandemic. 

He sees that more and more people are interested in nature-based tourism and conservation.

"There are about 10 percent, before the pandemic the numbers weren't this big, tourists chose destinations that cared about or paid attention to nature conservation," he said.
