Indonesia is the best host of world-class water sports tourism events, e.g. those taking place on Lake Toba, North Sumatra. Sports tourism is making a ‘very strong’ comeback.

Tourism and Creative Economy Minister Sandiaga Uno said says this.

Indonesia hails as the best organizer in this event. There will be an announcement of this in Sharjah (UAE) next week.

Uno said Lake Toba successfully held two international water sports events in 2023.

The Aquabike Jetski World Championship 2023 could attract more than 100 thousand spectators, he said.

He also said that the tourism and creative economy sector and the local micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) reaped the benefits of the event.

Despite the rain, people were enthusiastic. Most importantly, there was full occupancy in the hotels and MSME products could be sold.

There was positive economic impact on the community in the four districts which became the venues,he said.

H2O Racing founder Nicolo Di San Germano said Lake Toba is one of the world’s best locations for the water sports event.

According to him, Lake Toba is highly attractive and unique. It is possible to become a training ground for Aquabike and F1 Powerboat riders.

Because of its splendor and beauty, Lake Toba deserves to be popular in the world, he said.

The lake became the venue of this event.

Meanwhile, Acting Governor of North Sumatra Hassanudin informed that the hotel occupancy rate during the Aquabike Jetski World Championship event reached 100 percent.
