ViWI 2018 head Hariyadi BS Sukamdani, who was also present at the recent Hot Deals launch in Nusa Dua, Bali, said a total of 76 packages were offered.

"The duration, places and events in each package vary with the best prices and in the spirit of Hot Deals, which is 'less for more'," Hariyadi said.
