TRIBUNBATAM.id - The International Choir Festival is planned to be held in Maumere, Sikka Regency, East Nusa Tenggara (NTT).
A total of 28 countries will attend this choir event, which is packed with the nuances of Flores Island tourism.
"There are 1,500 participants from 28 countries who have confirmed that they will definitely attend the International Choir Festival, which will be held in July 2023," said Head of the Flores Tourism Care Community (KOMPASS), Lusia Adinda Lebu Raya, after an audience with the Governor of NTT, Viktor Bungtilu Laiskodat, Thursday, (8/4/2022).
This activity, continued Lusia, is routinely held every year in a number of big cities in Indonesia and other countries.
According to her, in addition to participating in the choir competition, the 1,500 foreign nationals are also scheduled to travel to a number of tourist attractions on the island of Flores, starting from East Flores, Sikka, Ende, to Labuan Bajo in West Manggarai Regency.
"The participants will be divided, starting from children aged 13 years, teenagers, to adults. The activities are for four days, but later they will be in Sikka Regency for 10 days," said Lusia.
He added that the choir activities apply a knockout system, so that the fallen participants have the opportunity to be able to enjoy a number of tourist attractions in Sikka Regency.
Lusia said, to support tourism, it is not only stopped at the thought that NTT, especially Flores Island, is only on Komodo Island, but also there are several other areas, such as in Sikka, Ende, and East Flores.
Thus, her party held the activity in Sikka Regency, so that other tourist attractions on the island of Flores could be widely known internationally.
To support proper lodging, her party has conducted a survey to a number of places, ranging from hotels to people's homes that will be used as homestays.
