Bali Welcomes Australian and New Zealand Agents

Bali Turns Out in Force to Welcome Garuda's 'Faces of Indonesia' Mega Familiarization Tour.


One of the largest travel agent promotions to "Bali and Beyond" in recent memory received an enthusiastic receptions in Bali when the local hospitality industry turned out in force to welcome the "Faces of Indonesia" familiarization tour.

The trip was jointly staged by Garuda Indonesia and Garuda Orient Holidays to give 150 top producing travel agents from Australia and New Zealand the opportunity to see for themselves the wealth of positive developments taking place in Bali - and the opportunity to extend their Indonesian travel experience through specially planned "beyond Bali" itineraries covering other destinations such as Yogyakarta, Surabaya, Jakarta and Lombok.

Perfect Timing

"The timing was just perfect," said Suranto Yitnopawiro, Regional Manager for Garuda Indonesia South West Pacific. "The industry was eagerly seeking to refute negative headlines Down Under and bursting with pride to showcase its latest product. Hoteliers have responded to adversity positively by increasing the diversity, quality of their product."

"Everyone who participated saw for themselves that Bali and Beyond offers brilliant value," said Suranto, with the mega familiarization program including stays at 28 different hotels, meals hosted at 88 different properties, five major functions for more than 100 guests, and a grand gala dinner hosted at the luxurious Conrad Bali Resort & Spa by the Bali Hotel Association.

The successful visit to Indonesia by Australian and New Zealand travel agents will be followed by a series of high-profile consumer travel writer trips and celebrity visits to help publicize the positive developments in Bali and Beyond and to encourage people to visit Indonesia on holiday.
