Spontaneous Travel Trend Rises in 2022; Sandiaga Uno Reveals Why

17 January 2023 20:09 WIB

TEMPO.CO, JakartaIndonesia’s Tourism and Creative Economy Minister Sandiaga Uno said spontaneous travel was one of the tourism trends emerging in 2022. Throughout last year, more than 2.4 million trips were booked last minute.

“It’s recorded that there are more than 2.4 million trips booked one day before or even on the day of the trip,” said Sandiaga on Monday, January 16, 2023.

According to him, the trend of having a vacation at a moment’s notice continued to increase after travel regulations were relaxed and public mobility restrictions or PPKM policy was revoked. Thus, travelers can take off on vacation freely.

For the record, the government enforced travel requirements and restricted public mobility in a bid to contain the lingering COVID-19 pandemic which broke out in early 2019.

He was optimistic that such a trend could expedite the target of 1.4 million domestic tourist visits which contributes 4 percent to GDP in 2023. The ministry would thus encourage various activities to boost the growth of the trend and attract tourists.

A number of plans have been prepared, including sales promotion of education trips, travel fairs, and integrated family trips. He also wanted to prepare tourist villages as spontaneous tourist destinations.

Sandiaga further mentioned that the most preferred region for spontaneous travel was Bali, followed by Bandung, Yogyakarta, Jakarta, and Semarang.
