Indonesia Warmly Welcome Former President Obama and Family

23 June 2017 , on News

Friday, 23 June 2017, former US President Barack Obama, Michelle Obama and daughters Sasha and Malia are eagerly awaited to arrive at Bali’s Ngurah Rai International Airport to spend a 6 full days vacation on this most enchanting island. While so far not too much publicity has been made about the visit, but social media has been abuzz with the news and Indonesians are excited, to say the least.

Expected to arrive in the evening accompanied by  8 other members, among whom is his half sister Maya Soetoro whose father is Indonesian, the Obamas are planned to stay at the Four Seasons Hotel in the bewitching town of Ubud. (Ubud is the location for the popular film Eat, Pray, Love)

Like King Salman of Saudi Arabia before, the Obama family has wished for the minimal protocol on Bali, since they are here to really enjoy this fantastic holiday island with the whole family.

From Bali, the family will fly to and stay in Yogyakarta  from 28th to 30th  June to admire the magnificent Borobudur temple, then proceed to Jakarta , where  Obama will give his Keynote Address to the 4th Indonesia Diaspora  Global Network  (IDGN) Congress on  1 of July to be held at the Kasablanka Theater.  On 30 June, President Joko Widodo has invited Obama for luncheon at the Bogor Palace which is located within the extensive green Bogor Botanical Garden.  It was also at Bogor Palace that a few months before, President Widodo officially welcomed King Salman of Saudi Arabia to Indonesia.
