Indonesia has rolled out 10 new destinations to woo Chinese travelers. They include Lake Toba, Tanjung Kelayang and Kepulauan Seribu. Trips to the new destinations are now available on major Chinese travel agencies, such as Ctrip.

Indonesia is aiming to attract 3.57 million Chinese tourists in 2019, says Indera Dewantho, the deputy director of the country's tourism authority's international marketing for China.

The country's tourism authority held tourism events in Hefei and Beijing in early April to promote what Indonesia has to offer.

Travel agents have been encouraged to sell the new destinations to the Chinese market, according to the tourism authority.
