A charming comeback
Adam Tan, Singapore, March 25, 2013
 

 

NOW we know where Dharma and Budi Tirtawisata got their good looks from.

 

TTG Asia met their father, Adhi Tirtawisata (above), founder and chairman of Panorama Group, who made a return at ITB Berlin after 22 years. He's 81 years old.

 

"I stopped going to ITB 22 years ago when Dharma started going to the show. I'm here just to look and see," he said.

 

So what does he think about tourism and ITB today?

 

"Well, just remember one thing: tourism never dies. As for the show, I'm happy to be here as I get to meet you."

 

Now we also know where Dharma and Budi got their charm from.
