Bandung to lure more Muslim travelers with halal tourism
Bandung is eyeing Muslim visitors with a halal tourism concept.
“Halal tourism is a concept of tourism that aims to meet the needs of Muslim visitors during their vacation,” said Bandung Culture and Tourism Agency head Dewi “Kenny” Kaniasari in Bandung on Monday.
“Bandung already has the 3As to offer in halal tourism: attractions like the angklung show routinely held in Saung Angklung Udjo; accessibility, as it can be reached by plane, train and car; and amenities, as it offers various options of accommodation, restaurants and shopping spots,” said Kenny, adding that the agency would also prioritize halal-certified eateries, fashion hotspots and prayer rooms.
The administration plan to establish a dedicated team to push for fast implementation of the program
