Jakarta gets new maritime tourism facility

The city hopes its seafront areas will become tourism destinations as a private sector firm takes aim at establishing a maritime tourism facility at Sunda Kelapa port, North Jakarta.

"I hope this facility can attract international and domestic visitors, thereby increasing the city's revenue. Serious attention to our seafront areas is crucial to developing Jakarta's maritime tourism potential in 2008," Governor Sutiyoso said Saturday.

Sutiyoso launched the colonial style Marina Batavia. The five-story building contains some 50,000 square meters of space, and its marina is able to accommodate 125 yachts.

In collaboration with the private sector, the Culture and Tourism Ministry, Maritime Affairs and Fisheries Ministry and State Ministry for the Environment will hold an international exhibition next year to promote maritime travel and sports.

Marina Batavia also provides facilities for visitors wishing to travel to Thousand Islands regency and the Old Town in West Jakarta.
