Ubud Tourist Attractions To Undergo Restoration In 2023

Share The Article

Officials from the Gianyar regional government plan to restore Ubud tourism attractions and facilities by 2023.


The Head of the Gianyar Regional Development Planning Agency, Gede Widarma Suharta, confirmed that the Gianyar regional government would receive a large budget from the central government to restore Ubud tourist spots.

“The central government plans to grant us a total of USD $2.4 billion (IDR 34.3 trillion) for this effort, which will start from 2023 to 2025,” Widarama said on Friday (11/2). The program was initiated since the number of Ubud tourists has decreased over the last few years.


The rapid development of Ubud caused the area to lose its attractiveness and beauty. “Traffic congestion due to the lack of parking space is one factor. The majority of car owners park their cars on side roads,” Widarma added.

To resolve this, the officials plan to build a parking building that will accommodate the vehicles of residents and tourists. Meanwhile, the government will ban additional building constructions in Ubud and encourage developers to consider Payangan and Tegalalang instead.

Officials will also invest in electric buses to transport passengers between Tegalalang, Ubud, and Payangan and widen the sidewalks for pedestrians in the central Ubud area.

“We will build bus stations for the electric buses, construct parking areas in Singakerta, Padang Tegal, and Astina Central, and widen sider walks in Ubud so the road can only fit one car. This is to avoid illegal parking,” Widarma concluded.

It isn’t village and it isn’t city.

The ongoing cost of a tourist visa and the requirement to quarantine is destroying Bali's Tourism Industry and economy and extending the people's hardship. Indonesia needs to catch up with its competitors with so many countries opening their borders. It must be obvious to the government that international tourists are far less of a risk than domestic tourists who have been responsible for the spike in the Omicron variant in Bali. Most if not all hospitality workers have now been vaccinated to booster level - so why not do the necessary to kick start the economy again. Tourists are booking their holidays for this year and they will not be to Bali. Give us a date for opening up with a VOA and no quarantine, urgently.

Yea that number sounds like someone's imagination or a typo. 2,4 billion USD, to Ubud. Lol, you could build another shitty Bali with that money and have some left over for "officials"

More likely 2,4B IDR not USD, out of which half goes missing before even anything starts. Things will be built with the lowest quality as usual and in the end maybe one street gets a sidewalk.

2.4 Billion USD, that's fantastic! Please use some of those funds to do some environmental cleanup and provide a waste management system for all the trash generated by tourist and locals.
