The 2023 iGeo - Bandung, Indonesia

THE 19TH INTERNATIONAL GEOGRAPHY OLYMPIADwill be hosted by Indonesia from 8 to 14 August, 2023 under the auspices of the International Geographical Union Olympiad Task Force. Post-iGeo trip (optional) will be held right after the event.

Bandung is the largest metropolitan city in West Java, Indonesia, with thousands of beauty. It is situated in the interior of Java on the northern edge of a plateau nearly 2,400 feet (730 metres) above sea level. The city lies on a river basin surrounded by volcanic mountains, which added the beautiful natural panorama of Bandung. During the 1920s, Bandung has the nickname "Paris van Java", which means Paris of Java, due to its significance in fashion trends.

Appointed by UNESCO as Creative City of Design in 2015, Bandung's cultural side is also unique, starting from the language, traditional dances and exceptional food. The Sundanese hospitality and the creative atmosphere gave Bandung its artistic image. Asia-Africa Street witnessed the Asian-African Conference, which marked the formation of the Non-Aligned Movement in 1955. Traces of Bandung's historical landmarks, such as Gedung Sate and Braga Street, have also become the main icon of Bandung that succeeded in attracting tourists.
