"Launched in 2016, the Braja Harjosari tourist village continues to attract several tourists from numerous countries," Munir remarked here on Wednesday.
According to him, numerous foreign tourists from the United States, Canada, Australia, and other countries have visited the village so far.
On Monday and Tuesday, some foreign tourists, chiefly comprising students from Melbourne, Australia, had also visited the Braja Harjosari Village.
Munir said that the Australian students from Melbourne were on a field trip to Lampung and took a few days from their trip to unwind in the village.
"A group of students from Australia came to this village on Monday and Tuesday, and the second group will come on Wednesday and Thursday," Munir remarked.
During the visit, the students from Melbourne enjoyed the culture and agritourism and took a close look at the wild elephants in the village at night.
The tourists said they were pleased to see the wild elephants in the Braja Harjosari Village, situated in proximity to the Way Kambas National Park in East Lampung.
Holding a huge appeal among international tourists, the province of Lampung is intensively promoting its tourism sector to help achieve sustainable development and to reduce poverty.
The province is endowed with several natural and marine tourist attractions, with numerous white sandy beaches, pristine waterfalls, lush nature preserves, and much more for both local and international tourists to enjoy.
