LABUAN BAJO, Realwonderoftheworld.com — Cheerfulness was seen in all over the faces of the winners in Indonesia.travel quiz. Five selected persons won the tour package to Komodo National Park (KNP).

While Dian Anggraini (21), one of the winners from Palembang told Marketeers on Friday (22/7), “So this is it: we have to increase our points; there are questions in Indonesia.travel daily and we have to answer five questions at max.
