ARCHIPELAGO – Pasca gempa bumi di pulau Lombok, stakeholder pariwisata di Nusa Tenggara Barat (NTB) kembali agresif menggaet wisatawan untuk datang ke daerah tersebut. Salah satunya dari DPD Himpunan Pramuwisata Indonesia (HPI) NTB yang menggelar roadshow ke Surabaya dan Malang.

“Memang kejadian gempa bumi bulan Juni lalu sudah pasti membuat wisawatan turun drastis. Tapi mulai September 2018 lalu, kami sudah mulai bangkit dan melakukan promosi wisata kembali dengan menawarkan wisata selain di daerah yang terdampak gempa yang lalu,” jelas Ainuddin, Ketua HPI NTB saat pertemuan dengan DPD HPI Jatim dan DPC HPI dari beberapa daerah di Jatim, Jumat (28/12/2018).

Daerah tersebut antara lain di wilayah Lombok Barat dan Lombok Selatan. Yang kondisinya aman dari gempa. Sementara yang terdampak dengan gempa adalah di Lombok Utara dan Lombok Timur.

Pemaparan Keamanan Pariwisata NTB

“Apalagi Gunung Rinjani juga sudah dibuka. Begitu juga dengan wisata Senggigi, pulau Gili-gili, juga sudah mulai operasional lagi, meski sebelumnya juga terdampak gempa,” lanjut Ainuddin.

Diakuinya, pasar wisatawan dari Jatim yang ke NTB cukup besar. Saat ini, tercatat jumlah wisatawan nusantara (wisnus) atau domestik dibandingkan dengan wisatawan mancanegara (wisman) yang melakukan kunjungan di Lombok mencapai 40 persen banding 60 persen.

Dari 40 persen itu, jumlah dari Jatim berada di tingkat kedua setelah DKI Jakarta.

“Karena itu dalam rangka membangkitkan kembali wisata di NTB kami datang ke Surabaya dan Malang untuk melalui HPI di wilayah ini untuk bisa mengajak wisnus datang kembali ke Lombok,” jelas Ainuddin.

Salah satu anggota DPD HPI Jatim, Budi mengakui bila jumlah wisatawan nusantara dari Jatim tujuan Lombok pasca gempa bumi merosot tajam.

“Memang banyak yang mengalihkan tidak jadi ke Lombok tapi ke Bali, Banyuwangi atau ke Malang. Namun dengan adanya kegiatan ini, kami optimis bisa melayani keinginan untuk ke Lombok, mengingat permintaan ada, tapi masih dengan catatan,” jelas Budi.

Catatan itu berupa keamanan dan kenyamanan pasca gempa. Namun dengan kehadiran DPD HPI NTB ke Jatim ini, cukup membuka komunikasi dan informasi tentang menggeliatnya kembali wisata di NTB.

“Terutama wisata kelompok seperti gathering dan lain sebagainya,” tandas Budi.(MOKO/BUDI)

HPI NTB Aiming Surabaya and Malang to Join Promoting Tourism

THE ATMOSPHERE OF NTB TOURISM SECURITY EXPOSURE

ARCHIPELAGO – After the earthquake on the island of Lombok, tourism stakeholders in West Nusa Tenggara (NTB) again aggressively hooked tourists to come to the area. One of them was from the NTD Association of Indonesian Guides (HPI) which held a roadshow to Surabaya and Malang.

“Indeed, the occurrence of the earthquake in June has definitely made tourists drop dramatically. But starting September 2018, we have started to rise and do tourism promotion again by offering tours in addition to areas affected by the past earthquake,” explained Ainuddin, Chairman of HPI NTB when meeting with East Java DPD HPI and HPI DPC from several regions in East Java on Friday (12/28/2018).

These areas include West Lombok and South Lombok. Which condition is safe from earthquakes. While those affected by the earthquake are in North Lombok and East Lombok.

CONVENIENCE OF MALANG’S HPI DPC

“Moreover, Mount Rinjani has also been opened. Likewise with Senggigi tourism, Gili-gili island, it has also started operations again, even though it was previously affected by the earthquake,” Ainuddin continued.

He admitted, the tourist market from East Java to NTB was quite large. At present, the number of tourists (domestic tourists) or domestic tourists compared to foreign tourists (tourists) who make visits in Lombok reaches 40 percent compared to 60 percent.

Of the 40 percent, the number of East Java is in the second level after DKI Jakarta.

“Therefore, in order to revive tourism in NTB we came to Surabaya and Malang to go through HPI in this region to be able to invite tourists to come back to Lombok,” Ainuddin explained.

One member of the East Java DPD HPI, Budi admitted that the number of tourists from the archipelago from East Java to Lombok after the earthquake had fallen sharply.

“Indeed, many divert to Lombok but to Bali, Banyuwangi or Malang. But with this activity, we are optimistic we can serve the desire to go to Lombok, given the demand, but still on the record,” explained Budi.

The note was in the form of security and comfort after the earthquake. But with the presence of NTB HPI to East Java, it is enough to open communication and information about the return of tourism in NTB.

“Especially group tours such as gatherings and so on,” said Budi. (MOKO / BUDI)
