Mengemas perjalanan insentif harus menawarkan pengalaman unik dan berkesan. Desa wisata bisa jadi destinasi pilihan. Merasakan kehidupan ala suasana desa tentu menawarkan sensasi berbeda.

Incentive trip jelas bukan jalan-jalan wisata biasa. Selalu ada pesan dan tujuan yang ingin dicapai. Selain program yang dikemas apik, pemilihan destinasi pun tak bisa sembarangan. Desa wisata bisa jadi pilihan. Tak hanya menawarkan pemandangan yang menyegarkan, peserta perjalanan insentif bisa merasakan kebersahajaan tinggal di desa.

Banyak alasan yang membuat desa wisata jadi pilihan tepat untuk perjalanan insentif Anda. Pertama, jumlah desa wisata di Indonesia sangat banyak dan tersebar di seluruh Nusantara. Asosiasi Desa Wisata Indonesia (Asidewi) mencatat, ada setidaknya 1.838 desa wisata di seluruh Indonesia.

Kedua, banyak desa wisata yang sudah sadar menerapkan protokol kesehatan dan prinsip CHSE atau Cleanliness, Health, Safety, dan Environmental Sustainability. Penerapan CHSE dan protokol kesehatan ini terkait sejumlah aspek seperti sarana prasarana, pelayanan, penyajian kuliner, pemandu wisata, sampai soal homestay.

Alasan ketiga ialah, berkegiatan dan menginap di desa wisata bisa menawarkan pengalaman dan sensasi berbeda bagi peserta perjalanan insentif. Peserta bisa merasakan kehidupan masyarakat setempat, yang tentu berbeda dari kehidupan di kota besar.

Apalagi, kebangkitan pariwisata Indonesia dipercaya dimulai dari desa wisata. Menurut Menteri Pariwisata dan Ekonomi Kreatif (Menparekraf), Sandiaga Uno, desa wisata bisa membuka peluang usaha, peluang ekonomi, dan membuka lapangan kerja seluas-luasnya bagi masyarakat.

Menurutnya, untuk membangun dan membangkitkan pariwisata nasional sebaiknya dimulai dari desa wisata. Itu juga kenapa, desa wisata menjadi andalan Kemenparekraf dalam mendongkrak pariwisata di masa pandemi Covid-19.

Menparekraf juga optimistis desa wisata akan menjadi pandemic winner seiring dengan perubahan tren wisata pasca pandemi. Wisatawan akan memilih destinasi yang mengedepankan rasa aman, nyaman, bersih, sehat dan seiring keberlanjutan lingkungan.

There are many reasons as to why tourism villages can be the perfect destination for your incentive trips. Firstly, Indonesia has a lot of tourism villages scattered all over the archipelago. Asosiasi Desa Wisata Indonesia or ASIDEWI (a tourism village association) recorded at least 1.838 tourism villages throughout Indonesia.

Second, most of the tourism villages are already aware of and implementing health protocols and the CHSE principles for Cleanliness, Health, Safety, and Environmental Sustainability. The CHSE principles and health protocols implementation are related to a number of aspects such as infrastructures, services, culinary, tour guides, and homestay.

The next reason is that doing activities and staying in tourism villages can offer different experiences and impacts for incentive travel participants. They can experience the locals’ way of living which of course differs from urban lifestyle.
