The Culture and Tourism Office for Southeast Sulawesi (Sultra) is opening tourism information centers in three major Indonesian cities in order to enhance the promotion of that province.
The Head of the Culture and Tourism Office for Southeast Sulawesi, Ibrahim Marsel, told Bisnis.com that the three cities scheduled to host Sultra Tourism Information Offices are Jakarta, Bali and Batam. "These Tourism Information Offices will be open 24 hours a day for access by anyone desiring information on Southeast Sulawesi tourism and the tourism activities planned for 2010," Marsel explained.
In opening the Tourism Information Centers, the plan is to increase both domestic and international tourism visitors to the region and to use the network of centers to organize a schedule of promotional events. Sultra has created a calendar of tourism events for 2010 including the Wakatobi Festival, an international gathering of Bajo people, a seminar on international archeology, Halo Sultra and Discover Sultra. Halo Sultra will present the traditional cultural traditions of the province and promote local producers and is scheduled to be held in April 2010. Discover Sultra will be held in September – October 2010 and will focus on art and culture, local products, the selection for a tourism ambassador and Miss Sultra, and a meeting of Sultans from palaces and principalities across Indonesia.
Included in their promotion program is Sultra Vista Vaganza Bali to help publicize Southeast Sulawesi to the Bali travel industry and the many international visitors to the island.
