Setting itself apart

Doto realized that Pentingsari Tourism Village was less attractive than other tourist attractions in Yogyakarta, thus together with the community, they agreed to highlight the village’s daily life to bring in tourists.

“As it turns out, travelers are genuinely interested in living in a village often choosing a homestay option, eating food like the locals, and conducting activities like people of this village. To them, those made for an interesting tourism experience whilst we get to interact with travelers.”

Their hard work in promoting their way of life has earned Pentingsari Tourism Village numerous accolades including the Indonesia Sustainable Tourism Award in the ‘Economy’ category in 2017.
