Six months following the disaster of mighty Tsunami and serial earthquakes that hit some parts of Sumatra, the tourism authority of Bali still receives overwhelming reactions and notes of sympathy from all over the world.
ÂThe support made it easier for us and the people of Sumatra to overcome the enormous losses of dear ones and to start building a new life. They are not alone and the friendsÂ support is fondly remembered by us and themÂ, said Gede Nurjaya, the head of the Tourism Bureau of the province of Bali.
Unfortunately the damaging effect of these natural disasters continues as BaliÂs international friends are now afraid to visit our beautiful country and even Bali. There is a misplaced conception of Âgoing to Bali / Indonesia or going somewhere else?Â Tourists are in doubts, because of fear of new earthquakes, tsunamis, political unrest or whatever.
Moscow to Milan
Bali, Yogyakarta, Lombok, etc. are not situated in the same geographical line that is now prone to earthquakes and tsunamis. Bali is as far from the stricken areas in Aceh and North Sumatra, as from Amsterdam to Ibiza, as far as New York to California, or as far as London to Madrid, Moscow to Milan and so on.
Bali is still the inspirational and peaceful destination, the ideal holiday destination and hub in South East Asia. There were scarcely political unrests in Indonesia since 1998. The peaceful and violence-free parliament and presidential elections last year were the best proofs. Today, the Parliament and President are directly elected by the people of Indonesia.
Bali caters for all, as it has it all.
Â A unique variety of tropical flora and fauna
Â Unchallenged beauty of Arts & Cultures
Â Breathtaking Nature, panoramas and views
Â Great, world class marine and diving possibilities
Â Extensive, year-long cultural and sports activities
Â A range of simple home-stays till super luxury resorts
Â Traditional treatments for body & mind in pampering spas
