Indonesian travel agencies have carried out marketing campaigns in China for several consecutive years. In order to attract more Chinese tourists, Indonesia plans to promote Chinese language training among hotel staff, so they can communicate with Chinese tourists using simple Chinese.

Indonesia has increasingly close ties with China thanks to the frequent economic and trade exchanges between the two countries in recent years. Chinese tourists are also shifting their attention to the once ignored country, with the world-famous island of Bali being their favorite Indonesian resort.

To promote its economic development and attract the increasingly rich Chinese tourists, Indonesia has made great efforts to enhance the Chinese people’s understanding of its tourism resources in recent years.

Certain Chinese people are still worried about their safety in Indonesia. The Indonesian government has implemented a series of counter-terrorism measures, and arrested the leaders and key members of certain terrorist organizations in the country in recent years, which has greatly improved its domestic security situation. The Indonesian police have stated on many occasions that they are able to ensure safety of tourists in the country’s major scenic spots.
