Another important highlight of the fair is the Asian Culture Festival. The festival is a review of a touristic and cultural offer of this fantastic continent – inhabited by many nations – which has not been properly explored by the Polish yet. During the event, one can feel an oriental, Asian atmosphere and get inspired to go an a real expedition. The programme includes, for instance, exhibitions and workshops of traditional dances, martial arts, Indian henna, or calligraphy, cooking workshops including tasting, concerts (among others traditional Indonesian orchestra gamelan), as well as yoga. Official partners of the festival are Indonesia and the Asia and Pacific Museum.
The World Travel Show Fair also hosts the Camper&Caravan Show and the Warsaw Yacht Salon. Attending the former one, you can find–at the same time and in the same place–the most state-of-the-art solutions for caravanning: campers, trailers, and car equipment (e.g. car tents, satellite antennas, photovoltaic panels). Producers of mobile homes and Dutch cottages will also showcase their products. Camping equipment, sports, touristic and recreational gear, clothes and accessories will be showcased outdoors. There will also be a presentation of caravanning services, e.g. campsites and service. Along with Camper&Caravan, the grand caravanning rally will be organised, which will be attended by teams from all over Europe. The following attractions will awaitthe participants: camping with grilling done by experts and cooking workshops, Beer Festival, as well as competitions, games, sports games, tours of the capital city.
