Bali which has known with various Bali tours and adventure options is still believed to remain a favorite destination for tourists to visit after the COVID-19 pandemic.
No exception to tourists from France who became one of the potential contributors to tourists in Indonesia.
This was said by Deputy of Marketing for the Tourism and Creative Economy Agency, Nia Niscaya through her written statement on Wednesday (5/13/2020).
Nia added, Bali will still be a favorite of tourists because in addition to being one of the destinations that always has a strong attraction for tourists, Bali is also one of the provinces in Indonesia which has a controlled distribution of COVID-19.
“Although Bali is the center of tourism in Indonesia with many tourists visiting the island, but Bali is not the center of the COVID-19 pandemic in Indonesia,” Nia Niscaya said.
She explained, positive cases of COVID-19 in Bali until now there were 328 cases with 215 people recovered and 4 people died. This is because the prevention programs carried out by the government, both the central and regional governments, run well. “This is because the Balinese can be disciplined to remain at home and obey the commands of the village head and local religious leaders. So, culture plays an important rule in this regard,” added Nia Niscaya. Therefore Nia estimates that Bali will become one of the destinations that is relatively faster to recover and visited by many tourists once the pandemic is declared over.
“Bali has been raising awareness for COVID-19 from the very beginning. Although the province has not officially enforced large-scale social restrictions, most precautions have been taken,” he said. Nia said Kemenparekraf will make Bali as a pilot project for the implementation of the CHS (Clean, Health, and Safety) program to be implemented in various destinations and managers of other tourism businesses in Bali, such as restaurants and hotels. “Through this CHS program we want destinations to be truly ready when returning to receive tourists after the pandemic. We do not want foreign and local tourists disappointed because we are not ready. We will encourage the industry to later be able to implement the CHS program well,” explained Nia.
