Sandiaga Uno said that this jump was triggered by the COVID-19 pandemic which then "forced" tourism actors in Indonesia to implement a number of innovations to survive during this period.

In this regard, Sandiaga Uno is optimistic that this will increase investor interest in developing tourism areas in Indonesia, especially the 5 Super Priority Destinations.

According to Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy webpage, those 5 destinations comprise of:

  1. Lake Toba, North Sumatra
  1. Borobudur Temple, Central Java
  1. Mandalika, West Nusa Tenggara
  1. Likupang, North Sulawesi
  1. Labuan Bajo, East Nusa Tenggara
