TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - East Java became the most popular province for domestic tourism destinations in 2023 based on data released by the Statistics Indonesia (BPS).

In her written statement received on Sunday, June 9, 2024, former Governor of East Java Khofifah Indar Parawansa, said that she is grateful that East Java is the domestic tourists' favorite in 2023.

According to the BPS data, there were a total of 207.81 million domestic tourists in East Java in 2023 or 25 percent of the total number of domestic tourism trips in that year.

"The tourism sector is a mainstay sector in boosting the community's economy, and we are grateful that East Java is the most popular province for domestic destinations in 2023," she said.

She explained that there are many top destinations in East Java. One of the most popular is Mount Ijen, known for its crater that has blue flames.

Located in Banyuwangi and Bondowoso Districts, tourists can enjoy Mt. Ijen's blue flames before 4 a.m. local time. The blue flame only exists in two countries in the world.

"Next is Mount Bromo which is very beautiful and has many interesting photo spots. Starting from the Teletubbies Hill, whispering sand, climbing spots to enjoy the sunrise," Parawansa said.

She said that Mount Bromo's sunrise is really amazing and is a must-visit destination.

Located in Probolinggo, Pasuruan, Lumajang, and Malang Districts, East Java, Mount Bromo not only attracts Indonesian tourists but also foreign tourists who want to enjoy its beauty.

Furthermore, East Java has the Batu City whose main attraction is the Jatim Park. The theme park offers a large selection of recreational rides that are suitable for family vacations.

"There are educational attractions like the Batu Secret Zoo, an animal museum, and the crowd-favorite Dino Park," Parawansa said.
