Panjat Pinang comes from Dutch colonial era. In those days, Londo (dutch people) have this game, where the participants are all native people. While the natives trying desperately to retrieve a variety of gifts of food or clothing, the Londo just enjoy laughing their desperate efforts.
Despite this game is a legacy of the colonial era, Panjat Pinang has a positive side as well. This game requires hard work and good cooperation. For spectators, the effort of the participants, their failure and success, are entertaining.
