The home to Komodo Island, one of the New 7 Wonders of Nature, has set the goal to reach between 1.8 to 3.6 million international visitors this year, betting on the resilience of its destinations.


According to Indonesia’s Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy (MoTCE), in 2022 the country will focus on quality and sustainable tourism in the post pandemic, trying to surpass last year’s figures. 


As many other destinations, Indonesia decided to focus first on quality and sustainability instead of only in the number of arrivals. In this sense, deputy minister of strategic policies at MoTCE, Kurleni Ukar, explained that “the government has not set a high target number, but as Indonesia will play host to a number of international events this year, the ministry is expecting a higher revenue from tourism as compared to last year”.
