British guidebook publisher Rough Guides have included Indonesia in its list of the world’s most beautiful countries – and quite high up, too.

The ranking was updated on Jan. 4 based on Rough Guides’ voting on social media channels.

This is not lost on President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo, who hailed the achievement with a video shared on his Instagram account.

Penerbit ternama dari Inggris, Rough Guides, baru-baru ini menggelar jajak pendapat secara global tentang negeri terindah di dunia. Hasilnya, negeri kita Indonesia berada di peringkat keenam di dunia, tapi yang terindah di Benua Asia. Apa yang menarik dari Indonesia menurut para netizens? Banyak. Dari suasana perdesaan, ketenangan pulau-pulau terpencil, hingga puncak gunung yang menjulang. Indonesia dianggap sangat menarik karena memiliki 17.508 pulau dari barat ke timur yang memiliki keanekaragaman flora dan fauna yang luar biasa. Netizens terpukau oleh adat istiadat, kuliner, dan bahasa daerah. Bali dikenal karena kuil-kuilnya dan titik selancar kelas dunia, Lombok karena pantai-pantainya yang memesona, Kalimantan dengan satwa liar orang utan di habitat aslinya, dan sebagainya. Hasil jajak pendapat Rough Guides ini semakin mengukuhkan posisi Indonesia sebagai destinasi wisata kelas dunia.
