America has Fourth of July, while Australia has Australia Day; Indonesia also has a day to equal those most celebrated national day, called Indonesia Independence Day or Hari Kemerdekaan Indonesia.
Republic of Indonesia celebrates the Independence Day every August 17. To celebrate it, people are adorning every corner of the streets across the country with national colors—red and white—which resemble Indonesian flag. Idyllic nationalism vistas are everywhere, flags are waving, patriotic songs are echoing, and parades are marching on.
In Bali, the celebration is peculiarly unprecedented compared with other regions in Indonesia. Involvement of foreign tourists, who are craving to experience this once-in-a-year cultural event, makes the celebration utterly different in the Island of Gods.
These are things to do to celebrate Indonesia Independence Day in Bali in order to fully embrace the festivity.
