Good news for tourism ministry and tourism industry as well
The number of Korean tourists visiting Indonesia reached a startling 400,000, a 25-percent jump from the previous year.
“Tourism is very encouraging,” embassy charge d’ affaires Foster Gultom said during a speech at a year-end party.

The island of Bali, for example, is one of the most attractive destinations for tourists and honeymooners because of its climate, temperature, affordability and exotic atmosphere.
