INDIA (eTN) – Indonesia is making strides to increase awareness in India on the many tourist attractions of the country, apart from Bali, which is already well known and popular.

Lombok, Yogyakarta, and Bandung are some areas getting attention as is shopping, apart from cuisine, culture, spa, and MICE markets.

In 2014, some 230,000 Indians went to Indonesia, and this year the target is 250,000, said Sanjay Sondhi, who heads the Visit Indonesia Office in India, and visiting tourism officials and agents, who were part of the 15-strong delegation in the sales mission to Delhi and Mumbai.

Ambassador Rizali, who has spent many years in India, felt that such missions should be organized more often with greater participation.

Among the delegates in the mission was Ms. Neeta Shamdasani, of the popular Queen’s Tandoor, promoting her various outlets in Bali and other places in Indonesia.

Nisha Shrivastava, Market Manager of Asia World Indonesia, also reported good response, as did Agustinus of KCBJ, who saw more interest in the spa, adventure, and MICE markets. U&I Holidays also saw great interest in new products and areas.

Sondhi said that Indonesia expected 20 million tourists by 2020, up from the 9.4 million in 2014.

The issue of direct flights between India and Indonesia is still hanging fire, although there is hope of progress now.
