Indonesia's futuristic take on travel

The country has decided to protect its future by placing its cultural heritage on Web3

Jun 28, 2023

In partnership with Quantum Temple, a Web3 platform designed to preserve cultural heritage, Indonesia's Ministry of Tourism has created Paths to Alangö, a collection of NFTs, one-of-a-kind digital assets that are sold through Web3, and promote conscious travel and cultural preservation by connecting the would-be traveler with local communities before they come to Indonesia

Key takeaways

  • Travelers who purchase the NFT will be able to view the experience on the NFT video before they go there in real life, and they can also connect with villagers before they arrive;
  • Indonesia will be able to restrict the amount of tourists visiting small villages as the NFTs are sold in limited amounts, so the travel experience will be one that helps rather than hinders the community;
  • And if that's not enough, the NFT will also provide a keepsake when the traveller returns home.
