For the preservation of cultural and natural heritageUjung
Kulon Tourism deeply believes in the significant role the Indonesia
culture plays in the world (a true “spiritual Amazonia”) and considers
that it is valuable and inspiring for all human kind. Currently only
tourism provides Krakatau and Indonesia to influence somewhat the West
by raising travelers awareness over the benefits of a daily life more
oriented towards nature and spirituality.
Ujung Kulon Tourism Indonesia is fully aware that no form of tourism
can completely avoid destroying, to some degree, the aboriginal way of
life but we believe that it is possible to limit the “damage”, and do
our best in that purpose.
A meeting with the inhabitants on an equal basis
Ujung Kulon Tourism
Indonesia wants to encourage encounters and exchanges with the local
people. They can take place during a walk, in a market, during village
festivities, in the street, in a restaurant, no matter, but they have to
be “natural” and on an equal basis. We strongly favor small hotels and
their hearty atmosphere, rather than international hotels where
employees (and tourists) are merely numbers. We are particularly shocked
by a recent phenomenon in the luxury tourism in Indonesia which is
about renting private villas including the staff. The service is
provided by local people reduced to the status of “servants”, as in
colonial times, when the natives had to be “civilized”. Krakatau Tourism
Indonesia fights this new kind of cynicism, in total contradiction with
sustainable tourism, jeopardizing the relationship’s quality between
the Indonesia and the foreigners.
An activity which benefits fully to the local economy
the population of emerging countries does not benefit so much from
touring packages. The alternative tourism proposed by Ujung Kulon
Tourism Indonesia allows you to enrich local economy more broadly by
bypassing the usual procedures and in particular important commissions
taken by agencies based in developed countries, as well as by big
international hotel groups. Bringing you on small roads, in remote
areas, money spent during your visits, meals, various purchases will go
directly to people generally left for consideration by the tourism
industry. You should also know that Ujung Kulon Tourism Indonesia,
through its company Ujung Kulon Tourism and Travel, is subject to taxes
