Indonesia does not protect its beautiful kampungs (housing areas for ordinary people).

"Indonesia which in January addressed an invitation to people around the world by proclaiming 2008 as "Visit-Indonesia Year" still has to work hard to achieve its target of attracting seven million foreign tourists this year.

"On several occasions, Culture and Tourism Minister Jedro Wacik expressed his optimism that the target of seven million of foreign tourist arrivals would be achieved. Yet, on Monday, he spoke in a `pessimistic tone` when he said Indonesia hoped to be visited by about 6.3 to 6.4 million foreign tourists by the end of the year." - RI must still work hard to attract seven million tourists
