Unique Tradition of Polewali Mandar Regency in West Sulawesi

 

Polewali Mandar Regency becomes increasingly popular these days, especially due to the presence of Tonyaman Archipelago. However, people have other reasons for visiting the region! These include the interest in local culture and tradition. Not only Polman becomes the home of Mandar Tribe, but it also offers various interesting traditions that tourists can enjoy during the visit. In fact, it may require much time to enjoy all these traditions as there are many of them. Plus, tourists need the help of a local guide who can explain thoroughly regarding the history and more information on those customs.

 

Mandar Tribe

Here is the fact. Mandar Tribe or Mandarese People dominate the population of West Sulawesi Province, especially in Polewali Mandar Regency. In terms of the name, it derives from “Sipamandar” (to strengthen). It is said there were about 14 kingdoms who share the same region back then. Through an agreement, these kingdoms try to build a stronger bond over time and live harmoniously. Some tourists are interested in Mandar Tribe’s characteristics which are friendly and helpful. Not to mention they have an attractive appearance, especially the local women.

 

Enjoying Unique Tradition of Polewali Mandar Regency

Now it is the time to talk about any available traditions of Polewali Mandar Regency. There are many famous ones indeed, including Sayyang Pattu’du. It has the meaning of “the dancing horses”, which is the form of gratitude due to the success of local kids in finishing the whole Holy Quran. As the name suggests, villagers may conduct a convoy while riding a horse and accompanied by traditional music instruments. That means this tradition has a close connection to Islamic culture, as well. Moreover, tourists are allowed to watch the event freely and take some pictures during the convoy.

 

The next popular tradition is called Kalindaqdaq, which is the form of words delivery to someone. The purpose is to impress others with such beautiful words. No wonder, the locals often use it in order to flatter women and someone they like. What is next? Mandar Tribe also has a unique tradition called Perahu Sandeq, which represents the locals’ capability in voyaging. In this case, tourists can take pictures of Mandar’s boats and learn some history about their voyaging.

 

The next interesting tradition is called Parrawana or Rebana. At the special occasion, villagers may gather and play tambourines (rebana) together. Rebana has a close connection to Islamic culture, in fact. Not only tourists are allowed to watch the performance, but they can also learn how to play it! What they need to do is to talk to the locals and ask them regarding the tutorial.

A Piece of Heaven Called Temajuk Beach in Sambas

Temajuk marks the point where Indonesia ends and Malaysia starts. Not yet known to many domestic and international travellers, Temajuk Village features a tidal beach with soft, white sands dotted with granite rocks. Underwater sightseeing is made possible as the water is clear.

Temajuk beach, actually running at a very long 60 km of coastline, is a tidal coast area featuring soft, white sand and preserved environment. One thing that differs this beach from Balinese beaches is portruding granite rocks distributed evenly throughout the coastal environment.

In places, granite rocks formations are in touch with corals. Best place to enjoy these formations is a certain location called Batu Pipih. In addition, the water along the beach is clear and offers good visibility, making it possible for snorkelers to do a short sightseeing underwater. It is no wonder that sea turtles choose Temajuk beach as their hatching place.

Some surfers have also tried the waves here – during Februrary-October, waves can hike up to 2 meters.

While the beach runs a very long 60 km-line, tourist and travelers activities are centered at Temajuk Village. It was Mr. Atong, a native to the village, who in 2010 started to shape the area into a tourist destination. He transformed a piece of his family land into a professional destination, independently managed.

At Atong Bahari Bay, Mr. Atong innitiated a homestay. As the area is not yet too crowded, visitors can always find a shelter here. If Mr. Atong homestay is full, they are welcomed to stay at people’s houses. So far, however, visitors are dominated by domestic tourists.

The village and its beach are not easy to catch, however. They are located at northernmost point of Indonesian Borneo, only 4 km away from Malaysia’s Melano Bay. Visitors start from Singkawang to the direction of Sambas. It is a 6-hours journey on a 200-km route.

The journey then continues to Kartiasa where we have to board a ferry to cross a big Borneo river. Once landed, we continue to the direction of Paloh, tracking a route with lots of improvement projects. We still need to cross two more rivers in a 50-km route afterwards before reaching Temajuk Village.

The Integration of Conventional and Digital Marketing to Achieve Indonesia’s Tourism Glory

Integrasi Pemasaran Konvensional dan Digital untuk Kejayaan Pariwisata Indonesia

Ginting Satyana

Director PT Mahoni Global (mahoni.com) & eastjava.com

 

Frasa dunia dalam genggaman kini bukan hanya perumpamaan, melainkan telah menjelma jadi kenyataan. Batasan ruang dan waktu seakan tak lagi relevan karena interaksi bertransformasi menjadi serba cepat, mudah, dan lebih terjangkau dengan adanya kecanggihan teknologi komunikasi. Tak ayal, platform digital pun seakan menjadi primadona tak terkecuali bisnis dan pariwisata. Sektor pariwisata tanah air yang berkembang pun menjadi sebuah ladang bisnis menguntungkan. Guna mengembangkan sektor pariwisata, tentu kemampuan beradaptasi dan berinovasi sesuai dengan perkembangan zaman diperlukan agar dapat bersaing dengan pariwisata negara-negara lain. Dalam hal ini, pemerintah — khususnya Kementrian Pariwisata — dan segala stakeholders terkait harus berperan aktif dalam memasarkan dan ‘menjual’ destinasi wisata Indonesia. Seluruh pihak harus memiliki loyalitas dan rasa tanggung jawab untuk mengelola pariwisata Indonesia baik saat ini maupun di masa depan. Pendanaan promosi pariwisata harus dibagi secara proporsional, yakni 50% untuk pendanaan short term bagi promosi destinasi wisata yang sudah terkenal, sedangkan 50% sisanya untuk pendanaan long term bagi destinasi wisata yang terbilang baru. Di sisi lain, hal ini juga harus diimbangi dengan kualitas dan daya tarik dari destinasi wisata itu sendiri. Kondisi destinasi pariwisata baik yang belum maupun sudah memadai tetap harus terus dibenahi, mulai dari segi akomodasi, akses, hingga fasilitas di destinasi wisata yang ada di Indonesia. Guna mencapai kondisi bisnis yang ideal, maka yang tak boleh diabaikan adalah aspek pemasaran yang mencakup publikasi dan promosi — baik ke dalam negeri maupun ke dunia internasional. Dalam hal ini tentu digital marketing memegang peranan yang amat penting. Perangkat gawai dengan koneksi internet memberikan kebebasan bagi tiap orang tanpa terkecuali untuk mengakses informasi dan kemudian menyebarluaskannya kembali. Dalam kaitannya dalam pengembangan bisnis pariwisata, platform digital merupakan medium yang tepat untuk dimanfaatkan guna mempercepat dan memperluas cakupan promosi dan publikasi destinasi-destinasi pariwisata yang ada.

 

Pada hakikatnya, digital marketing merupakan sarana atau medium untuk pencitraan merek suatu produk atau jasa yang meliputi kegiatan promosi dan pemasaran yang berbasis perkembangan teknologi digital. Implementasi digital marketing pada umumnya memanfaatkan pelbagai platform digital guna aktivitas peningkatan citra merek, seperti melalui website, social media, online advertising, email direct marketing, forum discussion, mobile applications, group chat, dan lain-lain. Digital marketing pun bukan berarti hanya komunikasi satu arah, karena ada pula platform digital yang memungkinkan terciptanya mass interactive activity, seperti misalnya forum diskusi. Hal ini bisa melibatkan banyak orang dan bisa membantu perkembangan sebuah bisnis secara digital, baik sebagai referensi maupun dari segi SEO. Maka, jika dibandingkan dengan offline marketing, digital marketing memiliki sederet keunggulan, mulai dari segi kecepatan, penggunaan yang praktis, beban biaya yang sedikit, hingga cakupan yang tak terbatas ruang dan waktu.

 

Segala kelebihan dari digital marketing ini tentu harus diimbangi dengan optimalisasi yang tepat agar mendapat hasil maksimal. Strategi pemasaran melalui platform digital harus dapat menarik perhatian target sasaran, yakni para wisatawan baik lokal maupun mancanegara. Karenanya, materi promosi yang dipersiapkan tak hanya harus informatif, tapi juga  harus dikemas secara kreatif – mulai dari artikel, foto, video, infografis, dan lain-lain – agar dapat menarik lebih banyak pengunjung. Selain itu, melakukan konsultasi dengan ahli digital marketing bisa menjadi langkah tepat untuk memulai implementasi strategi pemasaran maksimal. Sayangnya, peluang pengembangan bisnis pariwisata secara digital masih belum sepenuhya disadari dan dipahami oleh para stakeholders yang memegang peranan penting dalam sektor pariwisata Indonesia. Tengok saja bagaimana beberapa daerah di Indonesia masih setia pada offline marketing dengan memproduksi dan mendistribusikan ribuan brosur cetak yang selain menyita waktu dan cakupannya sempit, juga membutuhkan biaya tak sedikit. Karenanya, amat penting untuk menggalakkan literasi digital sedini mungkin, baik melalui seminar, diskusi, maupun pertukaran informasi di dunia maya. Harapannya, seluruh stakeholders bisa memiliki kesadaran dan pemahaman bahwa penerapan dan pemanfaatan platform digital akan berdampak positif pada efektivitas pemasaran bisnis pariwisata.

 

Kendati demikian, bukan berarti offline marketing harus sepenuhnya ditiadakan. Karena pada intinya, tujuan dan target publik dari kedua strategi pemasaran tersebut sama, yakni untuk memaksimalkan jumlah kunjungan wisatawan, khususnya yang berasal dari mancanegara untuk meningkatkan devisa negara. Karenanya, strategi yang tepat adalah melalui integrasi dan kombinasi antar offline marketing dan digital marketing sesuai dengan segmentasi dari masing-masing destinasi pariwisata yang ada. Disamping itu, keunggulan lain yang ditawarkan digital marketing adalah promosi dan publikasi tak hanya bisa dilakukan oleh pelaku bisnis, tapi dapat dilakukan oleh siapapun sebagai pengguna dari platform digital tersebut. Oleh sebab itu, yang dapat berkontribusi dalam perkembangan pariwisata Indonesia bukan hanya insan pariwisata melainkan juga dapat melibatkan pelbagai pihak, termasuk generasi muda. Dengan adanya loyalitas dan rasa nasionalisme yang tinggi, kesadaran dan pemahaman yang menyeluruh perihal implemetasi strategi pemasaran yang tepat, serta kolaborasi dari seluruh stakeholders untuk aktif mempromosikan pariwisata Indonesia, maka kejayaan bisnis pariwisata Indonesia bukanlah impian semata.

The Integration of Conventional and Digital Marketing to Achieve Indonesia’s Tourism Glory

Director of PT Mahoni Global (mahoni.com) & eastjava.com

 

The phrase of the world in a grasp today is more than just a metaphor, because it has become a reality. It seems that limitation of space and time is no longer relevant because today’s interaction has transformed into a fast paced, easier, and more affordable with the advance of communication technology. Undoubtedly, digital platform seemed to be the top, including in business and tourism. Our nation tourism sector that has growing continuously becomes a profitable business field. In order to develop the tourism sector, the ability to adapt and innovate is certainly necessary to compete with other countries’ tourism. In this case, the government — especially the Ministry of Tourism – and all relevant stakeholders must play an active role in marketing and ‘selling’ Indonesian tourist destinations. All parties must have a loyalty and a sense of responsibility for managing Indonesian tourism – both for the current condition and for the future. Funding for tourism promotion should be proportionally shared, which is 50% for short-term funding for the promotion of well-known tourism destinations, while the remaining 50% for long-term funding for the development of new tourism destinations. On the other hand, this should also be balanced with the quality and attractiveness of the tourism destination itself. Indonesia’s tourism condition nowadays is adequate and yet still have a lot of things to be fixed, from the aspect of accommodation, access, to facilities in tourism destinations in Indonesia.

In order to achieve the ideal business conditions of tourism, the marketing aspect that includes  publicity and promotion — both domestically and internationally should not be ignored. In this case, digital marketing plays a very important role. A device equipped with an internet connections gives everyone the freedom without exception to access information and then redistribute it. In connection with the development of tourism business, digital platform is the right medium to be utilized in order to expedite  and expand the scope of promotion and publication of existing tourism destinations. By implementing digital marketing strategies, Indonesia has equal opportunity and reach as wide as other countries in marketing tourism.

In essence, digital marketing is a medium for the branding of a product and service that includes promotional and marketing activities based on the development of digital technology. Implementation of digital marketing in general utilize various digital platform for brand image enhancement activity, for instance through website, social media, online advertising, direct marketing email, discussion forum, mobile applications, group chat, and others. Digital marketing is not just a one-way communication, because there is also a digital platform that allows the creation of mass interactive activity, such as discussion forums. This can involve many people and able to help the development of a business digitally, both as a reference and in terms of Search Engine Optimization. So, when compared with the conventional marketing (offline marketing), digital marketing has a series of advantages, from the aspect of speed, practical use, little expense, to unlimited scope of space and time.

All the advantages of digital marketing certainly had to be balanced with the right optimization for marketing efforts to get maximum results. Marketing strategy through digital platform should be able to attract the attention of targets, which are both local and foreign tourists. Therefore, promotional materials should be prepared to not only become informative, but creative as well –from articles, photos, videos, infographic , and etc — to attract more visitors. Furthermore, consulting with digital marketing experts can be done to start an implementing of maximum marketing strategy. Unfortunately, the business development opportunities of digital tourism is still not fully aware and understood by the stakeholders who play an important role in the Indonesian tourism sector. Just look at how some areas in Indonesia are still stick to offline marketing by producing and distributing thousands of printed brochures that beside wasting more time and narrow coverage, also certainly requires a lot of money. Therefore, it is very important to start promoting digital literacy as early as possible, either through seminars, discussions, or exchanging information in cyberspace. In the end, all relevant stakeholders can have awareness and understanding that the implementation and utilization of digital platform will have a positive impact on the effectiveness of tourism business marketing.

However, it does not mean that conventional marketing (offline marketing) should be completely eliminated. Because in essence, the goals and public targets of both marketing strategies are the same, which is to maximize the number of tourist arrivals, especially from foreign countries to increase foreign exchange. Therefore, the right strategy is through integration and combination between offline marketing and digital marketing according to the segmentation of each existing tourism destination. Furthermore, other advantages offered by digital marketing are the promotion and publication not only can be done the business, but can be done by anyone as a user of the digital platform. Therefore, those who can contribute in the development of Indonesian tourism are not only tourism from government or private sector, but also can involve various parties, including the young generation. With loyalty and high sense of nationalism, awareness and a comprehensive understanding of the appropriate marketing strategie implementation, and collaboration of all stakeholders to actively promote Indonesian tourism, the triumph of Indonesia’s tourism business is not a dream anymore.

Danau Dendam Tak Sudah (DDTS), can be translate with Never Ending Revenge lake is one of famous destinations in Bengkulu. This lake is settle in Dusun Besar village, Singaran Pati sub-district, Bengkulu and has an area of 557 and 67 hectare wide. The lake thought to have formed from volcanic activity in the area.

By located in the strategic importance, in 1936 this lake was established as a nature reserve with an area of 11.5 hectares by the Dutch government. Then, in 1979, this nature reserve area has been expanded to 430 hectares.

In 1999 this nature reserve area was expanded to 577 hectares. As to the somewhat sinister name, there are two versions to the story. The first one tells the legend of a young couple whose love was not blessed by both their parents. The pair of lovers was then said to succumb to depression and eventually took their own life by plunging into the lake. Taking their grudge to the afterlife, their action would later give the lake its legendary name. The second version is believed to have occurred during the Dutch Colonial period. It is said that during that particular time, the Dutch Colonial Government decided to build a dam in the lake to prevent water from flooding, and then build roads along the lake. Somehow, the project was never completed, thus the name “Unfinished Dam” was widely used. From the “Unfinished Dam” or “Dam tak Sudah” over time this would evolve into “Dendam Tak Sudah”.

In the morning, the visitors can enjoy the sunrise and the beautiful scenery of the lake surface that is reddish in the light of the sun. We can also do fishing and travel across the lake with raft or boat. Since the lake is surrounded by hills and lush forests, then we can get the very fresh cool air, with beauty of the vast nature reserve enivironment. ”Dendam Tak Sudah”Lake is no less beautiful and exotic to Toba lake in North Sumatra and Maninjau lake in West Sumatra. Dendam Lake is about 6 km from the center of the city of Bengkulu.

The access to the site would not be difficult, for there are many public transportation to the area or if you bring your own vehicle,the distance from Bengkulu is juat about 30 minutes’ drive away. To get to Danau Dendam Tak Sudah, you can take public minibuses or buses with the route Bengkulu-Danau Dendam tak Sudah. Situated only 6 Km from Bengkulu city, the trip will only takes roughly around 30 minutes’ drive through smoothly asphalted roads.
