The 25th World LP Gas Forum featuring Oceania Stream
& Global Technology Conference was a great success!
This year, the World LP Gas Forum had the pleasure of welcoming in Bali
more than 1400 participants from 70 countries.
The magical island of Bali is located among 17,500 islands across the Indonesian archipelago and forms part of the 33 provinces of the Republic of Indonesia.
Bali may be relatively small in size but its prominence as a destination is huge. Bali has fascinated and influenced visitors from the outside world for centuries. The Balinese maintain a precious heritage of unique arts and a dynamic culture amidst breathtaking panoramas of cultivated rice terrace, impressive volcanoes, beautiful beaches and thousands of temples.
Life in Bali is always related to “Tri Hita Karana” or a tripartite concept that include the spiritual relationship between human and God, and their environment. On the Island of the Gods, the passage of life is measured through elaborate rituals performed by local people.
Interestingly, Balinese culture is still as what it was, growing along with globalization. It is the Balinese civilization that makes the island different from other destinations.
More than a tropical island paradise, Bali is a unique destination within Southeast Asia and any trip to this visitor-friendly island creates an enduring memory.
A successful combination of business with pleasure is just one of Bali’s unique attributes.
