Zhejiang University of Technology's Pingfeng Campus recently came alive with the vibrant sights and sounds of "INA DAY: Tresna Sujati", the largest Indonesian cultural festival in Hangzhou.

Organized by the Hangzhou Indonesian Student Community, the event attracted hundreds of students from Indonesia and around the world, offering them a taste of Indonesian culture through a bustling bazaar and dynamic stage performances.

The campus was transformed into a lively bazaar reminiscent of Jakarta's streets, where attendees could savor traditional Indonesian foods such as turmeric yellow rice with chicken, fried noodles, and spicy chili sauce. They also had the chance to engage in cultural activities like Kertas Anyaman and the traditional art of paper weaving, play traditional games, and try on Indonesian costumes at various booths.

The highlight of the festival was the Barong Landung performance, a music drama steeped in Balinese mythology, telling the love story of an ancient Balinese king and a woman of Chinese descent. The drama was rich with emotional depth, unexpected twists, and humor, making it a favorite among the international audience.

The event showcased Indonesian culture, fostering a sense of unity and cultural appreciation among the attendees.
