Opening tests of 20 tourist sites to be evaluated each week: Sandiaga Uno



TEMPO.CO, JakartaNo less than 20 tourist destinations in several major cities of Indonesia have started their opening trials using the PeduliLindungi app. Minister of Tourism and Creative Economy (Kemenparekraf) Sandiaga Uno said his side will monitor the opening process and conduct a gradual assessment.

“This trial will continue to be evaluated on a weekly basis,” Sandiaga Uno said at a press conference on Monday, September 13, 2021.

According to Sandiaga, there are a number of materials that will be assessed when opening the tourist destination, including the strict and disciplined implementation of the health protocol based on the CHSE.

“Visitors making reservations, from arrivals to departures,” said Sandiaga Uno.

Then, how the manager can determine the crisis point of a possible violation of health protocols or the potential for high transmission in each activity within the destination. “Like ventilation, because interior spaces are more risky, so we have to be careful at every point,” said Sandiaga Uno.

The evaluation will also target the duration of the activities, the distance between visitors as well as the activities in which it is necessary to touch public objects. “And the fourth and most important thing is how to implement the PeduliLindungi app to control everything,” he explained.

Currently, 2,264 people have registered or obtained the PeduliLindungi QR code. These recipients are bars, cafes, hotels, restaurants, fast food restaurants and tourist destinations located in Jakarta, Bandung, Semarang and Surabaya.

The 20 tourist destinations that have been tested for opening are Taman Impian Jaya Ancol, Taman Mini Indonesia Indah and the Betawi Setu Babakan Cultural Village in Jakarta; Taman Safari Indonesia, The Lodge Maribaya, Glamping Lake Rancabali, Kawah Putih, Jbound and Saung Mang Udjo in West Java; Grand Maerakaca Mini Park, Borobudur TWC, Prambanan TWC, Taru Jurug Animal Park, Breksi Cliff Park, Gembira Loka Zoo and Asri Mangunan Pine Forest in Central Java and Yogyakarta as well as Selecta Recreational Park, Jatim Park 2, Hawai Group, Maharani Zoo and Caves from East Java.

In addition, according to Sandiaga Uno, the PeduliLindungi app will become the gold standard for activities in various sectors, including tourist destinations and tourist villages. “Kemenparekraf will continue to disseminate and prepare all parties, including tourist villages, to be able to implement this application later,” he concluded.
