Corona : Jogja Tourism Is Lacking Of Visitors What Is The Impact?

Tourism Crisis Threatens Almost Worldwide, including Bali Indonesia

The same thing also happened in Yogyakarta. Foreign tourists who are usually seen passing by on the road now look almost non-existent. The hotels were quiet because no one inhabited.

Although March is included in the low season category where tourists visit less frequently, the number of foreign tourists coming to Yogyakarta remains less than usual. This was especially seen in the Sosrowijawan region.

The area is famous as an international village where many tourists stay. Even so, the impact of the corona virus in Yogyakarta is not as significant as in Bali. According to the Yogyakarta Hotel and Restaurant Association (PHRI) Yogyakarta, cancellations and delays in hotel room bookings have only reached two percent.

Head of Yogyakarta Yogyakarta Tourism Office, Singgih Raharjo said that he was optimistic that Yogyakarta would be able to bring in 500,000 foreign tourists in 2020 alongside the corona virus outbreak. This figure is more than last year’s 433 thousand foreign tourists.

The tourism industry is an industry that involves humans as its main commodity. Therefore, airlines, hotels, restaurants and travel agents who rely on their income from tourists experience a crisis due to the spread of the corona virus.

The International Aviation Industry Association (IATA) has even announced that the aviation industry’s loss due to the corona virus could trample the figure of U $ 113 billion.

If left unchecked, the country could suffer losses due to the tourism industry which continues to plummet. Growing international tourism is one of the industries that has significantly raised the global economy since the 1950s.

The number of tourists who travel internationally is 1 billion in 2010 and 1.4 billion in 2018. According to WHO, this figure is expected to continue to grow. However, since the corona virus touched a global scale, this number has declined.

European and American Tourism Industries Down with the Corona Virus

Seeing this situation, the Minister of Tourism and Creative Economy, Wishnutama seeks to move domestic tourism in order to cover the losses caused by foreign tourists.

The Indonesian government has prepared incentives in the form of discounted airline tickets ranging from 30 to 40 percent for 10 tourist attractions in the country.

From March to May 2020, the discount applies to Batam, Denpasar, Yogyakarta, Labuan Bajo, Lombok, Malang, Manado, Silangit, Tanjung Pinang and Tanjung Pandan. In addition to the government, airlines can also impose discounts for the majority of domestic tourist destinations.

Even so, the government of the country affected by the corona virus must strive to restore the tourism industry after this outbreak has gradually declined. Thus, tourists can travel again and economic conditions can be stable again.
