Visitors can enjoy the cool air under the foot of Mount Manglayang accompanied by performances from local children playing traditional games.

In addition, visitors can take selfies as much as they want with the background of the city of Bandung.

The Kreati Pasir Kunci Tourism Village is another creative economic prospect in the tourism sector which is believed to be able to boost the economy.

Yana said the tourism sector played a significant role in achieving Regional Original Income (PAD) in the city of Bandung.

For this reason, he asked that this activation be used to consistently develop the potential of cultural arts to encourage tourists to attend.

"I hope that it is not only formed and kept silent, we encourage activation, the potential for art and culture in this region is extraordinary, it's just a matter of how we activate it thematically here, and most importantly consistency," he said.

In addition, the Kreati Pasir Kunci Tourism Village is also an open space for children to play.
Not to mention, this place is the right vehicle for the preservation of traditional culture which is currently increasingly squeezed by modern culture in the hearts of the people.
He advised all stakeholders in Ujungberung to guard the Pasir Kunci Tourism Creative Village. So that more visitors will come.
"If it is consistent and has lots of visitors, the economy will grow, especially after the pandemic. The tourism sector contributes quite a lot to Bandung's PAD. So it must be consistent," he said.
