MUMBAI,  18 September,  2017 (GNS) :  “Journey to a Wonderful Indonesia”, the promotional video of Indonesia’s Tourism, today won not just one, but two awards in the UNWTO Tourism Video Competition 2017. Showcasing the diverse mesmerising wonders of the Indonesian Archipelago, the video received Top Awards in the category East Asia and the Pacific Region, as well as the People’s Choice Award.

The Awards were presented in the 22nd UNWTO General Assembly at the Intercontinental Century City Convention Center Hotel, Chengdu, China, and was received personally by a delighted Minister Arief Yahya, Indonesia’s Tourism Minister.

Emerging on the top of the list, the Video successfully outranked others submitted by 63 countries.

As the title implies, “A Journey to a Wonderful Indonesia” takes the audience on an exceptional trip across Indonesia’s array of spellbinding destinations like Yogyakarta, BaliJakartaLombok, TorajaRaja Ampat, and Wakatobi. Aptly accompanying this amazing display of wonders, is the legendary hit song brought by none other than the unforgettable Louis Armstrong :’ What a Wonderful World’.

Expressing his delight in this achievement, Minister of Tourism, Arief Yahya said: “Today we have gained the highest achievements from UNWTO for the Best Tourism Video in the Asia Pacific region as well as the Best Tourism Video chosen by viewers all over the world”.
