Four wedding planners from India join a familiarization trip (famtrip) initiated by the Tourism Ministry to Yogyakarta and Bali on August 2 to 6.
This famtrip aims to promote MICE (meetings, incentives, conferences and exhibitions) tourist destinations in Indonesia.
After the trip, these wedding planners are expected to come up with wedding tour packages to destinations in Indonesia.
“The famtrip participants will be introduced to Borobudur and Prambanan temples and going to Bali to enjoy the beauty of the island as well as exploring Balinese and Indian foods,” said the ministry’s deputy assistant for Asia-Pacific Tourism Promotion, Vinsensius Jemadu.
During their time in Bali, the participants will visit Leke Leke tourist village in Bedugul where they can try tubing activity.
The Tourism Ministry is targeting to attract 546,000 Indian tourists in 2017. Its overall goal is to have 15 million foreign tourists, mostly from the Asia Pacific region, to come to Indonesia this year.
