The Indonesia Pavilion greeted its 2 millionths visitor on June 19, an 18-year-old boy from Jiangsu Province.

It took only 18 days for the pavilion to reach another 1 million as it welcomed its first million on June 1.

The boy visited the Expo site with his family. He received goodie bags provided by Artha Graha, a sponsor of the pavilion, and enjoyed free meals at Enak! Restaurant inside.

The 1,999,999th visitor, a 33-year-old woman from Hubei named Shuai Yan Ju, also received the gift.

The exterior of the Indonesia Pavilion is covered with greenish bamboo sticks. The use of bamboo symbolizes the synergy between the traditional and contemporary lifestyle of Indonesia.

Housed in the four-story pavilion are, among other things, a performance stage, an auditorium and a multi-media theater, which will collectively facilitate a lively presentation covering nature and people's daily life in Indonesia, its rich land and marine resources, as well as its diverse cultural heritage.

A 600-meter passageway runs through the whole pavilion. A high waterfall is created in the middle of the building, creating a unique view. Water falls in different forms, and the small drops fall like countless dazzling pearls. Visitors' view of the waterfall will change as they go upwards along the passageway.
