Are you curious about the favorite tourist spots for foreigners in Indonesia? Let’s take a look at four of them.
Foreign tourists who have an indonesia residence permit, apparently have some favorite places to visit. According to a number of foreigners, these destinations have their own charms that are difficult to find in other locations.
One of the main reasons, which often makes foreign tourists switch from one popular tourist destination to the other, is because they are bored and want to find a new and more exciting atmosphere. It turns out that the following four tourist attractions are the destinations that often become the options of alternatives.
Maybe if you hear Kuta Beach, Raja Ampat, or Borobudur Temple, they are very commonly visited tourist destinations for foreign tourists. In contrast, some of the places below, became alternatives for their visit during their vacation or free time in Indonesia.
1. Tana Toraja (South Sulawesi)
This location offers a lot of knowledge about different local cultures, one of which is the Ma’nene tradition of placing the family’s body on a cliff. Some are buried using stone graves or patani.
At a certain time, the body will be re-dressed with new clothes with a special ceremony. There are quite many foreign tourists deliberately coming to this area, to see firsthand the Ma’nene procession and a series of other unique traditions. As well as engage with local residents there.
2. Telaga Waja (Karangasem, Bali)
Testing your adrenaline by doing extreme sports such as rafting has also become one of the favorites of foreign tourists. Telaga Waja, which is located in Karangasem, Bali is one of the main destinations.
The river flows roughly, making rafting even more exciting, especially when passing the cliffs up to 4 meters high.
3. Baliem Valley (Papua)
Baliem Valley is the place where the Dani tribe lives. Up close, you can directly see the view of the valley that is still preserved in its authenticity, as well as side by side with the Dani tribesmen who still exist and still maintain their ancestral traditions.
For some foreigners, being there makes them more enthusiastic than coming to the beach or mountain which has become a mainstream tourist destination anywhere.
4. Komodo National Park (East Nusa Tenggara)
Komodo Island, which has become the Komodo National Park, is the original habitat of the giant lizard species native to Indonesia. It takes courage to be able to wait and see directly these animals carry out their activities in the protected park area.
Foreigners apparently are fond of this challenge because its tenseness challenges our adrenaline, especially if they can be close to an animal that has a poisonous tongue. Plus, the location of the park is very beautiful and suitable as a vacation spot or just a break from the daily routine.
They also usually look for indonesia flores coffee which is also located in NTT (East Nusa Tenggara). The taste of coffee is very different from coffee in general. It really succeeded in attracting foreign tourists who are coffee addicts. They also seem to have no doubt to buy this original Indonesian coffee when they get back.
Are you also interested in traveling to these favorite locations for foreign tourists? Of course, it will give unusual sensations, compared to coming to a tourist attraction that is already very familiar to visit.
