Jakarta. GenPI, an online community dedicated to promoting Indonesian tourism, will launch more offline activities by opening three markets in three different cities to mirror Karetan Market in Kendal, Central Java.
The markets are Pancingan Market in Lombok, West Nusa Tenggara, Baba Boentjit Market in Palembang, South Sumatra, and Siti Nurbaya Market in Padang, West Sumatra.
"This is in line with Tourism Minister Arief Yahya's idea that a community must have a creative and commercial value to be sustainable," Don Kardono of the ministry's communications department said in a statement on Wednesday (22/11).
GenPI is engaged in social media promotion of tourist destinations and policies. Almost all of its activities are online. The offline markets will be held every Sunday morning.
"We hope these markets can be sustainable and will benefit the local communities," Don added.
