Jakarta. The 2017 Sleman Tourist Village Festival, which is currently taking place in Yogyakarta, includes a competition to find the best tourist village to represent the district in the next competition at the provincial level.
Twenty-two tourist villages in Sleman were chosen to compete in the festival, which will feature a culinary competition and authentic souvenirs.
"We want to look for a new champion so last year's champion is not included in this year's competition," Sleman Tourism Agency head Sudarningsih said, as quoted in a statement on Sunday (03/12).
During the finals, all participants will showcase their leading products in one big event.
"We hope this competition will encourage tourist villages to improve their management and set fixed pricing for their products and services," said Guntur Eka Prasetya, one of the judges.
