Jakarta (ANTARA) - DKI Jakarta-owned recreation and real estate company PT Pembangunan Jaya Ancol targeted 300 thousand visitors to its tourist attractions in Ancol area during the 2024 Isra Mikraj and Chinese New Year (CNY) holidays on February 8-11.

"We are targeting 300 thousand people in the Ancol area during the four national holidays and this weekend," the company's Director of Operations, Eddy Prastiyo, stated here on Thursday.

In detail, his side has targeted 10 thousand visits per day, or in total, 40 thousand for four days to the Sea World in Ancol. This accounts for 13 percent of the total targeted number of visitors.

According to Prastiyo, the number of visits to Ancol usually averages 40 thousand per day on weekends.

"During this holiday, there is a two- to three-fold increase in visits as compared to the normal days," he highlighted.
