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
