Indonesia has emerged as one of the most popular tourist destination for an avid Indian traveller. In the first four months (January-April 2017) the visitor number from India, recently released by VITO, recorded an increase across all key indicators. Talking about India market, Mr Sanjay Sondhi said, “India continues to be the second top source market for inbound visitors into Indonesia with a total number of 1,37,291 Indian arrivals, recording a growth of 17.55 per cent increase over the corresponding period January-April 2016. India comes under the top source markets for Indonesia and has always been a hot favourite for Indian tourists, looking for a quick trip abroad on an affordable budget.”
Elaborating more on VITO’s plan for the India market, Sondhi added, “Moving forward for the year, one of our key focus areas is to tap the Indian wedding, family and luxury segments. VITO India will also focus on various segments such as student groups, senior citizens, sports enthusiasts, heritage and culture enthusiasts, leisure travelers and the lucrative wedding segment. Our target segment from India mainly consists of families, couples, business and weddings. And we mostly look at the age group between 25-65 years.” VITO India will also organise Roadshows in Ahmedabad, Pune, Coimbatore, Bengaluru and Chandigarh in August 2017.
