TEMPO.CO, JakartaTourism and Creative Economy Minister Sandiaga Uno said the ministry is keen on developing the tourism potential of North Bali. Other than boosting the number of tourist visits, the measure is aimed at reducing the burden of South Bali tourism.

“So I want to design several activities and encourage infrastructure development in North Bali and West Bali. There will be an ecotourism program in the West Bali National Park in Buleleng Regency,” said Sandiaga on Tuesday, May 17. 2022.

Not as popular as South Bali, regions in North Bali including parts of Buleleng Regency have incredible natural experiences, from beautiful lakes, beaches, to stunning waterfalls.

South Bali regions, which includes Kuta, Legian, Tuban, Nusa Dua, Tanjung Benoa, Ungasan, Jimbaran, and Uluwatu, are known for its white sand beaches and have more tourist visits as they are close to I Gusti Ngurah Rai International Airport.

“Since before the COVID-19 pandemic, the government has had plans to develop North Bali by building a railway line and an airport. The development of North Bali is carried out together with other ministries/institutions,” said the minister.

Sandiaga Uno also said the ministry would focus on developing tourist destinations, creative products, and human resources in North Bali. “This development is of course aligned with our goal of achieving quality and sustainable tourism,” he said.
