The important aspect is a feeling of security, a feeling of comfort. This is what it takes

Jakarta (ANTARA) – Vice President Ma’ruf Amin urged efforts to expand tourism in Palu, central Sulawesi, in areas such as Taipa Beach, to boost economic activities in the community local.

The vice president advised the management of tourist attractions in Palu to prioritize providing a sense of security and comfort to visitors, according to a statement received in Jakarta on Friday.

“The important aspect is a feeling of security, a feeling of comfort. That is what is needed,” Amin said as he walked Friday on Taipa Beach in North Palu in central Sulawesi.

On the sidelines of a working visit to Palu, Vice-President Amin, along with Wury Estu Handayani and the mayor of Palu Hadianto Rasyid, took the time to exercise.

Wearing a white t-shirt, black shoes and a black hat, the vice president began sports activities at 6:15 a.m. local time.

Amin began his exercises with a warm-up of about three minutes, led by his aide-de-camp, Colonel Fierman Sjafrial August.

The vice president then walked 2 km for 30 minutes around Taipa beach, after which he sat by the beach to enjoy the ambiance.

According to the vice president, Taipa beach has a charm of its own that attracts tourists to visit Palu.

The beach is also full of facilities, such as cabins, gazebos and a full man-made lake.

However, as it is in the red zone, the vice-president felt that the community is still wary of visiting this beach.

Taipa Beach was one of the areas affected by the earthquake, liquefaction and tsunami in 2018.

Amin also expressed optimism that an early warning system will be implemented there, so that the public is made aware of the likelihood of an earthquake and tsunami.

Taipa Beach is a tourist spot in Lembo Subdistrict, North Konawe District, Central Sulawesi. The word Taipa comes from the Tolaki language, which originated in Central Sulawesi, which means mango.
