Indonesia celebrated its 72nd Independence day on the 17th of August 2017 in glorious style. The 17th of August has been declared a national Holiday in all of Indonesia.
The huge Indonesian archipelago, made up of more than seventeen thousand islands stretching from South East Asia to the Pacific, is like many countries in one. When you are here, visiting the popular province in Indonesia, Bali, is a must as there is so much to see and do. You may choose to book into a Bali resort hotel such as the Anantara Seminyak Bali Resort.
A special publication was released by Indonesia Investments dedicating itself to this historic day. It was highlighted by stories such as the former President Soekarno’s continued fight for the freedom of Indonesia and also of the birth of Indonesia’s national anthem, a brief narration of the period of colonial rule and of its heroes who struggled on behalf of Indonesia for its independence.
It’s celebrations were held at Wisma, in Rose Bay. The theme adopted for this year’s Independence Day was ‘Kerja Bersama’ (togetherness).
