"We hope the number of foreign holiday makers visiting Indonesia will persistently rise so that it will contribute to more revenue for the communities," head of the bureau Kecuk Suhariyanto said.

Malaysia, followed by China, Singapore, Timor Leste and Australia, is the most contributive country to the Indonesian foreign tourist arrivals in April, according to him.

Indonesia looks to meet a target of 20 million foreign tourist arrivals in 2019, after logging 15.81 million foreign tourist arrivals in 2018, according to tourism ministry.
