Indonesia among Top 7 Dream Destinations in the World : WAYN
Thursday, 2 May 2013 |
Indonesia, with all its fascinating wonders in over 17,000 islands, has been chosen among the top seven dream destinations in the world.
The largest online social travel network WAYN (Where Are You Now) through its website has recently revealed the top seven dream destinations as chosen by its 21 million users worldwide.
The nominated destinations (both cities and countries) were selected by employing a combination of market research data and tracking user engagement on WAYN.com. WAYN’s 21 million users voted for their favorite destination out of the seven listed, with prizes up for grabs for those who vote, in the period of two weeks starting from 3rd April. Additionally, each nominee received US$70,000 of marketing promotion globally, out of a US$500,000 marketing contribution from Where Are You Now? Ltd.
Comprising 17,504 large and small tropical islands fringed with white sandy beaches and stunning landscapes, Indonesia is the largest archipelagic country in the world. The country is blessed with fascinating diverse natural landscapes and exceptional cultures. While the fabled island of Bali
has built its own international reputation for its stunning beaches and unique culture, yet Indonesia still has a lot of other equally amazing splendors.
Those who could just die for divine beaches and stunning underwater life can spoil themselves in Raja Ampat, Wakatobi
, or Bunaken
. For wildlife and adventure seekers, a chance to see the Komodo Dragon in its natural habitat on Komodo Island
or an up close and personal encounter with Orangutans at the Tanjung Puting National Park
are surely experiences that cannot be found in other parts of the world.
As a country of diverse ethnic groups, Indonesia is also blessed with some of the most unique cultures. The grandeur of Javanese art and lifestyle in the city of Yogyakarta
still retains its classic ambience of the sultanate. Other more exotic cultures can also be found on Nias, Mentawai, Flores
, and other islands in the archipelago.
