Indonesia to Speed Up Borobudur Highland Tourism Area Construction
Indonesia's Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy will speed up the development of the 309-hectare Borobudur Highland tourism area in the Menoreh hills, Central Java.
The acceleration of the construction includes various plans. One of them is to facilitate access to the tourism area by building roads, which will be carried out by the Ministry of Public Works and Public Housing.
"The target is to complete it by the end of 2021. We hope this can stimulate the economy and the spirit to recover from the pandemic and economic challenges," said Minister of Tourism and Creative Economy Sandiaga Uno on Wednesday, June 23.
In addition to easy access, the Borobudur Highland will have a variety of tourist attractions, including an amphitheater, mountain biking, spa, and forest tracks.
The Borobudur Authority Agency (BOB) is also collaborating with the Bobobox capsule hotel to provide high-tech lodging in the area. The resort investment value is projected at 1.5 trillion Indonesian rupiahs ($104 million) and the value of basic infrastructure reaches 350 trillion Indonesian rupiahs ($24 billion).
Director Indah Juanita said that the Borobudur Highland could absorb around 1,800 employees. Borobudur Highland is located on the border between the Kulon Progo regency in Yogyakarta and the Magelang regency in Central Java. Coming with the theme of cultural adventure eco-tourism, Borobudur Highland is the right place to relax and enjoy the fresh air.
