International guests are now booking more Indonesian hotels than ever before — the highest since February 2020
Technavio projects growth of USD21.9 billion in the Indonesian tourism and hotel industry from 2021 to 2026. Indonesia’s tourism and hotel market growth is the increasing preference for local and authentic experiences.
The Indonesian tourism and hotel industry is increasingly focused on exploring local communities and cultures that are considered critical aspects of the industry. As travellers become more conscious of the effects that tourism has on the environment, this new style of tourism is anticipated to gain popularity. This will accelerate the focus market’s growth throughout the forecast period.
Moreover, growing internet access and online testimonials are also helping the growth of the industry. The increasing importance of online testimonials as a means of planning visitors’ visits and related itineraries is expected to attract more attention.
