The interest of return visit in the tourism sector business is the most important factor. Tourist destinations that have unique attractions and their promotions that are always maximized will influence tourists to return to visit those tourist attractions.

The method applied in this research is quantitative with multiple linear regression approach. Primary data in this study were obtained through questionnaires and observation, while secondary data was obtained through literature study and documentation. The sample in this study by purposive sampling was 100 respondents who were Instagram and Facebook users and they have visited Umbul Ponggok at least once, and their age are about 17 years old and above.
