KOMPAS.com - A number of tourist attractions throughout Indonesia were reopened Tuesday, May 18. Previously, they were asked by the government to close the facilities during the recent Eid holidays to avoid large crowds amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

All tourist destinations in Magelang, Central Java, including Borobudur Temple Tourist Park (TWC) began to reopen on Tuesday, May 18, with a limited quota of visitors and cut operating hours to 3 pm. Its facilities from the main gate to the visitor ticket area and tourist merchant area are ready to welcome the tourists and follow the health protocols. 

The Jakarta Provincial Government also reopened Taman Mini Indonesia Indah (TMII), Ragunan Wildlife Park, and Ancol Dreamland on Tuesday with a maximum capacity of 50 percent or 30,000 visitors per day. Visitors are required to buy tickets online at least a day before the visit.

"As of noon today, we have received 3,500 visitors," said TMII Head of Public Relations Adi Widodo, Tuesday.

Other tourist attractions are crowded with visitors, including the Cikoromoy bath in Pandeglang, Banten. The two bathing pools were full. Even before the closure, the crowd consisting of traders and residents around the baths asked the management to reopen the place. 

The closure of tourist attractions was carried out to avoid crowd-pulling activities that would trigger the spread of Covid-19 during the Eid holidays.
