JAKARTA -- Indonesia has designated five scenic places as "super priority tourist destinations" in a drive to end the reliance on the world-famous resort island of Bali. The government will invest in infrastructure in the five destinations and step up promotional campaigns for them.

It aims to give tourists more options and raise the country's tourism revenues, which have been heavily dependent on Bali, to spur economic growth.
