Following last year's success, the Wakatobi Wonderful Festival and Expo or more familiarly known as the Wakatobi Wave will again turn the spotlight on the underwater paradise of the Wakatobi National Marine Park in Southeast Sulawesi. To be held on 19th to 22nd October 2017, the event will be centered on Wangi-wangi Island, one of the larger islands in the Wakatobi cluster. In fact, the name Wakatobi is taken from the first two letters from the hames of the four main islands: Wangi-wangi, Kaledupa, Tomia and Binongko.

Wakatobi Wave will be the perfect occasion for you to explore the fascinating wonders of the islands where on land the islanders stage their traditional dances, music, and art performances as well as folk games, a carnival, traditional culinary fiesta, and a whole lot more. As special treat this year, the people have prepared a massive traditional ceremony called Kabuengan as well as a colossal dance performance.

While in its clear aquamarine seas, highlighting Wakatobi's marine splendors, there will be the Underwater Photography competition, a Triathlon, and a unique Pole climbing competition off shore. Pole Climbing, or Panjat Pinang as it is known in Bahasa Indonesia, is a very popular folk game usually held in connection with Indonesia's Independence Day Celebrations where groups of 4-6 people try to climb greased areca palm poles to reach the prizes hung on the top. Climbing up the pole some distance from shore will certainly add to its challenges. On a more serious note, the Wakatobi Wave 2017 will also feature a Seminar that addresses the issues concerning Marine Tourism.
