Indonesia Is Giving Free Bali Staycations To Residents To Test Tourism Readiness
Written by: Travel Inn
Authorities halted tourism in Indonesia’s prime attraction in April to prevent the spread of the virus, devastating its economy.
Though it reopened for local visitors in July, it is struggling to get back on track and has also seen infection numbers climb.
The trips will include local tours and participants are expected to promote “New Normal Bali” on social media.
Bali last year had more than 10 million visitors, 6.3 million of which were foreigners, Astawa said.
The staycation plan was announced on a day when Indonesia reported 4,634 new coronavirus cases, a record for new daily infections, bringing the total number to 262,022. Its death toll of 10,105 is Southeast Asia’s biggest.
On average, Bali recorded 48 cases per day from Aug. 1 to August 23. It recorded 127 on average cases per day in all of September.
Bali had initially weathered the health crisis better than other parts of Indonesia, but coronavirus cases spiked after it reopened to domestic tourism.
“Lots of people gather and throw parties at the beach,” said I Gusti Agung Ngurah Anom, chairman of the Indonesian medical association in Bali.
