Indonesian Weekend

Indonesian Weekend to recreate Balinese beach in London

The third edition of Indonesian Weekend will be held in London on September 8-9. 

Touted as the UK's largest festival of Indonesian culture, this year's free event plans to recreate a Balinese beach with 50 tonnes of white sand spread around a beach bar in Potters Fields Park, next to Tower Bridge. 

With support from the Ministry of Tourism (MoT) Republic of Indonesia and Indonesian Ministry of Education and Culture, the Indonesian Embassy in London and the West Java Province, among others, the event will see authentic Indonesian musicians, dancers, chefs and martial artists appear throughout a two-day family-friendly extravaganza.

Attendees can try out the local cuisine of Indonesia with food stalls and an Indonesian MasterChef on hand to present some of the country's best dishes. Visitors can also gain travel tips and advice from operators - including Ethos Travel, Flight Centre and Travel Counsellors - onsite to help guests plan bespoke itineraries.

The official airline partner Philippine Airlines will be giving away free flights to Bali as part of the event’s annual social media competition. Also, free stays at luxury resorts are up for grabs from hotel partners.

Nia Niscaya, deputy for international marketing development for the ministry of tourism, said: “This year, the event is recreating a Balinese beach which gives the ambience of a warm destination and is a strategic moment to introduce and promote Indonesian tourism through content of natural, cultural and sensory wonders. Wonderful Indonesia is putting on this event to increase awareness not only for Britons but also to reach thousands of international visitors who visit one of London’s most iconic tourist attractions.”
