The Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy's Deputy of Tourism Products and Events Rizki Handayani said that the event aims to introduce the many tourist destinations in Indonesia to an audience who miss the experience of traveling.
CEO of Traval.co, Julius Bramanto added that his hope is for all stakeholders to contribute in rebuilding Indonesia’s tourism sector.
“That way we can create a positive and sustainable impact which benefits society, nature, and local culture.”
Julius highlighted how selecting the tourist sites that will be featured during ‘Virtual Indonesia’ was based on the distinctive stories each destination had to share.
The tourist destination of Gorontalo was chosen for the virtual tour of Indonesia because of the whale sharks swimming in its waters, an aspect unique to Indonesia.
