Officials hope to get the amount of visitors to Bali’s famous Tanah Lot temple to over three million by the end of the year so they can stay consistent with last year’s numbers.
According to records from the regional tourism destination goals (DTW) for Tanah Lot, with just a couple of weeks left, the temple needs 217,000 more visitors as of December 13, 2015, to hit 3 million visits, reports Tribun Bali.
Last year the temple received 3,125,205 visitors on record.
The Tanah Lot DTW manager I Ketut Toya Adnyana said he’s optimistic 2015 will stay on track.
“There are still 17 days left before the turn of the year. Currently, the number of visitors is (about) 2,908,500 people as of December 13, 2015, for both domestic and foreign tourists,” Adnyana said on Monday.
He added that targets are usually modest and not to drastic, that authorities hope to build upon the numbers of previous years, bit by bit.
