In order to boost Chinese tourists traveling to the archipelago, Indonesian Tourism Ministry has appointed Hong Kong action superstar Jackie Chan as Indonesia’s tourism ambassador to China.
“Jackie Chan is the most popular movie star in Asia, especially in Hong Kong. Therefore, we’ve agreed that his appointment will help boost Indonesia’s popularity among Chinese travelers,” Deputy Tourism and Creative Economy Minister Sapta Nirwandar told The Jakarta Post.
Chan has received stars on the Hong Kong Avenue of Stars and the Hollywood Walk of Fame. He is also a cultural icon and notable philanthropist.
Chan can immediately start to learn Indonesian destinations from Chinese version websites like Indonesian Tourism Ministry’s (http://cn.indonesia.travel/) or The Jakarta Post Travel’s website (http://cn.jakpost.travel/) :-)
