"The route of Denpasar, Xian and Zhengzhou is the development of Garuda Indonesia's strategy to continue expanding the market. Currently Garuda Indonesia's market share on the Indonesia-China route is 35 percent," said Garuda Indonesia Cargo Director Sigit Muhartono on Wednesday.

Muhartono said China's market plays an important role in the company's international market. The number of international tourist arrivals from China is around 120 million per year worldwide. Garuda Indonesia hopes to maximize the market potential through the opening of Xian and Zhengzhou routes.

"China is currently the main market of Indonesian tourism. The government has targeted the level of Chinese tourists visiting Indonesia to 10 million people by 2019. This commitment becomes a market potential that we will continue to develop," said Muhartono.

Garuda Indonesia has served direct flights to China including Jakarta - Guangzhou, Jakarta - Beijing, Jakarta - Shanghai, Denpasar - Beijing, Denpasar - Guangzhou, Denpasar - Shanghai and Denpasar - Chengdu. Denpasar is also a hub for domestic routes, including Yogyakarta, Makassar, Manado, and Labuan Bajo.

El Paraíso

El Paraíso is a site of mysterious ruins built in the Late Preceramic or Cotton Preceramic period (3500-1800 BCE) or an aceramic site of 0.58 sq kilometers in Chillon River Valley, San Martín de Porres District, Lima Province, Peru . The area was once occupied briefly by a group of cultures for at least 300 to 400 years and the estimated population is 1500 and 3000 people.

The ruins of the Andean Preceramic stone structure have long been a debate among archaeologists calling the Late Preceramic period, while Fréderic Engel (1957) refers to Cotton Preceramic. Pozorski and Pozorski (2008) argue El Paraíso is an "aceramic" site because at that time many other areas have ceramics.

The purpose of the site is also still mysterious given the lack of sediment, the presence of burial or grave areas, and the construction of thick walls consisting of rocks dug in local hills which confirm the theory that the site is not a residential or domestic complex. The evidence precisely promotes…
