Indonesia 印度尼西亚 🇮🇩


On Indonesia’s Independence Day on August 17th you will most likely run into a strange kind of tree bearing prizes. Each year locals participate in Panjat Pinang, a tradition to represent how the communities learn to work together and resist against the Dutch government in 1945. Tall palm tree trunks are planted in villages around the country, adorned with hoops from which are hung baskets, toys, bicycles, and other great prizes. The catch? To get to the prizes, the team members have to climb up the poles that have been greased up for the challenge. Needless to say, things get slippery.

In Jakarta, the buildings and homes fly the red and white flag with pride. While some might enjoy watching the assembly of government officials at the National Palace, other might prefer the satisfying participation of the krupuk (shrimp chip) eating contest. As you wander through Jakarta’s neighborhoods, cheer on participants of the bike decorating games and races.

在雅加达,建筑物和房屋以红色和白色的旗帜自豪地飞翔。 虽然有些人可能喜欢在皇宫观看集会,但其他人可能更喜欢参与 krupuk(虾片)吃饭比赛。 当您漫步在雅加达的街区时,到处是高杆游戏和比赛的参与者。

France 法国 🇫🇷


Saying the French wear berets and eat baguettes – that’s a cliché, but saying the French know how to celebrate their national day – that’s a fact! While Bastille Day, celebrated on the 14th of July, is a day to remember when the revolted Parisians stormed the medieval prison known as Bastille, it’s also a huge countrywide holiday to show national pride. If you want to see spectacular fireworks, go to Carcassonne where fire flows off the medieval ramparts, or watch the fireworks light up the cliffs of Etretat.
