#Indonesia - Sidoarjo turns mud waste area into tourist destination.


Lusi Island is set to become the latest tourist attraction in Sidoarjo regency, East Java.

The reclaimed island, which is a result of mud dredging from Porong river estuary, will be part of Mangrove Restoration and Learning Center's area managed by the Maritime Affairs and Fisheries Ministry alongside local administration and the public.

Since 2015, the ministry has built many facilities in the area, which include pedestrian track, observatory tower, a management office, toilet and water management installation.


 “[The island] is good for mangrove tourism. It will also have karamba [floating fish enclosure] next year,” said the ministry’s directorate general for Territorial Sea Management Brahmantya Satyamurti to tempo.co.

Set on a 94-hectare of land, the island also hosts Tambak (fish farm) Wanamina. However, a large part of the island has not yet been developed. 

Brahmantya said the island was initially created to become a mud waste area for Porong River and not designed for tourism. Therefore, to turn it into an ecotourism spot, it will need sufficient sanitation, as well as clean water facilities and food and beverage stalls.

New 100 Million Baht Tourist Attraction Burned To The Ground

A brand new 100 million baht Thai-style wooden house at Ban Phayamai near Pattaya was burned to the ground on Friday morning.
.
The new tourist attraction was completely destroyed after taking almost ten years to build as workers put the finishing touches to the interior before opening to paying visitors.
.
Firefighters were called to Ban Phayamai in Nong Preu at around 10am and took several hours to bring the blaze under control.
.
The large wooden house was built of teak and other precious wood at a cost of 100 million baht and is owned by Khunthong Ou-ngern, a well-known businessman and owner of Poipet market.
.
The fire was believed to have been started by an electrical fault.

Fire crews struggle to bring the flames under control as fire rages through the yet to be opened Ban Phayamai tourist attraction in Pattaya, Chon Buri, on Friday morning.
