Dukuh village, Donokerto, Turi – Sleman, DI Yogyakarta
The concept of “tourist villages” (desa wisata) came about several years ago when the governments of several regencies realized there was much more in the Jogja area to offer travelers than the familiar Keraton, Borobudur, and Prambanan. Villages were given the choice of participating in the program or not, and those who accepted in some areas were given assistance in developing home stays and simple traditional meals, education in basic hygiene, and promoting their natural attractions.
This is also an opportunity for tourist revenues to extend to the local people, which is welcomed by all. Overnight stays are available at villages that offer home stays, usually in rooms with private toilets added on to a family’s home.
“Agro villages” or the misleading term “agro wisata” refers to visits or overnight stays to hamlet whose daily lives revolve around plantation work.
