Indonesia has always been one of the hot travel destinations in the world. There are various places where one can go to visit in the country. Other than this, there are many other entertainment methods that one can use on Indonesia. The fact that there are a lot of holiday resorts and beaches in Indonesia has made it possible for the people from various parts of the world to visit the destination.
As the development of various other parts of the world increases, Indonesia seems to be slipping from being one of the most favored holiday destinations. There are various reasons for the decreased patronization of Indonesia and these reasons are listed here.
One of the main reasons for the lack of people visiting Indonesia is because of the growing threat of fundamentalism and terrorism in the country. Though there have not been many acts of terrorism, people who visit the country on a holiday would prefer not to take a chance with their lives. So, the number of people who are on a holiday shift their travel to less riskier places. This has played a huge role in the decrease of the number of tourists who visit the nation.
The 2004 tsunami has also played a huge role in decreasing the number of tourists visiting the nation. Indonesia was the country that was having many tourists visiting it, but with the massive death toll in the tsunami that stuck the island and the earthquake, the number of people who are scared to visit the nation that seem to be very highly prone to earthquakes. All these have decreased the overall number of people who visit Indonesia for tourism. Though there are still a considerable number of people visiting the nation, it is quite less compared to the numbers who used to visit the nation a few years back.
