Cultural and building conservation (_DSC1171)

    Newer Older

    Cultural and building conservation is also a good way to bring in the tourist dollar. The very beautiful and very traditional Aryani Resort is a good example. According to Raja Bahrin, the resort is full almost all year round, some tourists book one year in advance and 85 to 90% are visitors from UK, Germany and Scandinavia. What are they looking for? "These tourists are easy," Raja Bahrin says. "Give them privacy and good food and they're happy." The guests sleep at about 9pm. All the resort does is organise cultural performances from time to time, and have some soothing gamelan music at night.
