Despite being known as the last paradise on earth, Raja Ampat is currently not doing well in terms of tourism, raising concerns about its future.
The increasing popularity of Raja Ampat on platforms like Instagram and YouTube allowed more people to discover and be amazed by its stunning beauty.
Raja Ampat heavily relies on social media promotions from visitors, highlighting the importance of people sharing their experiences and photos to generate interest in the destination.
The high cost and specialized skills required for diving in Raja Ampat make it less accessible to all Indonesians, limiting its attractiveness to a specific group of tourists.
Raja Ampat's high costs, including expensive accommodation and flight tickets, make it less accessible and attractive to people with limited budgets or who are unwilling to spend a large amount of money.
The price of lodging in Raja Ampat is also very expensive, with even basic homestays costing 1 to 2 million per day.
The improper waste management in Raja Ampat, including burning garbage, leads to significant pollution and negatively impacts the area's natural beauty and reputation as a tourist destination.
Raja Ampat is considered a must-visit destination for Indonesian travelers, and not visiting it may make it hard to be called an Indonesian traveler.
