INDUSTRY.co.id - Bantul - Desa Mangunan Village Management Village Dlingo District, Bantul District, Special Region of Yogyakarta targets to have 105 "homestay" or place of stay for tourists to advance the rural tourism.

"At least I target half of the number of heads of families in Mukuk's hamlet will have a homestay. If half of Mangunan's occupation, it means about 105` homestay`, "said the manager of Tourism Village Mangunan Purwo Harsono in Bantul on Saturday (11 / 11/2017)

According to him, "homestay" or house owned by residents in the middle of the countryside is important to accommodate longer-term tourists living in tourist villages, while currently in Mangunan Dlingo tourist village has only 25 "homestay".

"It means that the amount is still far from what we expect, especially from the number that is really ready just about 16` homestay`. Therefore, the target in the future like that at least continue to grow in number, "he said.

The "Homestay" developed by the Mangunan community does not have to be a big house with a modern concept like a hotel, but it can be a small house with standard amenities and is comfortable to live in.

"So when the homestay of a small house I ask for a standard, not a nice house, but a clean house environment, orderly, neat, comfortable toilets, if the model toilet is actually not so expensive," he said as quoted by Antara.

In addition to clean, he added, also the arrangement of the environment of "homestay". This will be a tourist attraction to stay or stay longer, even the highly emphasized rural nuances are not eliminated.

"This is what we are trying to continue to change the mindset of the people there, it's not over yet because it's still difficult, especially when he always says 'la, my house is bad, it's so hard to change,' he said.

He mentioned the total destinations in Mangunan Village that has been developed since 2 years ago that there are currently dozens of points that offer tourism potential of pine forests, landscapes, peaks, and spots for Selfie.
