After that, they were going to MUSEUM OF THE ASIAN-AFRICAN CONFERENCE, the museum was named in order to memorize the venue of the Asian-African Conference that became the source of inspiration and motivation for the Asian African nations. The students, especially from Netherlands, were very excited about the information given inside the museum. Since the history of Indonesia’s independence can not be seperated from Netherlands. The next place they visited is Geological Museum. Geological museum was initially serves as a laboratory and storage areas of geological and mining results from different regions of Indonesia. “This museum is very interesting since they provide interactive feature in each section”, said Hiroya Suefuji and Issho Nakajima, SBM ITB foreign students from Ritsumeikan University, Japan.

At the end of tour, they watched angklung performance and traditional Sundanese dance, which is held at Saung Angklung Udjo. The students tried to play the Indonesia’s original traditional music instrument, on the top of that they danced together with the traditional dancers.

Overall, the event run very well and will be a good start for the international students to get familiar with Bandung City and also SBM ITB.
Once again, welcome to SBM ITB!
