ITMF Annual Conference Held in Bali
Nusa Dua, Bali recently welcomed 250 participants of International Textile Manufacture Federation (ITMF) from 29 different countries.
“They were in Bali from September 14 -16, not a single participant issued a complaint, everybody was happy because they got to explore Tanah Lot, Ubud and Uluwatu after the meeting,” explained Indonesia textile association executive secretary boards of directors, E.G Ismy.
The group visited Tanah Lot on their first day in Bali. Tanah Lot was once visited by the vice president of India Muhammad Hamid Ansyar, Turkish and Korean celebrities and contestants of Miss World 2012 and 2013.
“Tanah Lot is very cool, the place’s arrangement emphasizes on the religious value mixed with the beautiful nature,” said ITMF president, Jaswinder Bedi.
Tanah Lot is one of the leading tourist destinations in Bali after Kuta Beach, as it has a breathtaking panoramic view especially during sunset.
Following the visit to Tanah Lot, the group then went Ubud where they saw rice terraces, local handicrafts, art galleries and visited the Sacred Monkey Forest Ubud.
“The Sacred Monkey Forest is really special, former Manchester United player Luis Nani once visited this place, so did Hollywood celebrities Paris Hilton and Julia Roberts. This is a wonderful experience for the ITMF delegates,” said tourism ministry’s Archipelago Tourism Marketing Development deputy, Esthy Reko Astuti.
The last stop was Uluwatu where they witnessed the performance of Kecak traditional dance at Pura Uluwatu during sunset.
