Bali Bomber’s execution affects Bali Tourism
After the execution of the three bombers last week, security has been increased in Bali by authorities. Travel warnings by US, UK and Australian governments have alerted tourists going to Bali to reconsider, and unnecessary trips to this paradise island or other parts of Indonesia to be avoided.
With many of the Australian schoolies paining to visit Indonesia, especially Bali, the Foreign minister Stephen Smith, says the Federal Government are concerned and have re-issued a advisory warning that travelers should reconsider their travels to Bali and Indonesia.
The Australian government has received credible evidence that due to the execution of the three bombers, this may follow with terrorist attacks which has been stated by the Indonesian government that this may occur sometime early November.
Travel agents, hotels and related services are urged to be flexible with their customers and guests when it comes to changes of bookings and reservations. Already several hotels are experiencing changing of travel schedules by guests booked into Bali hotels in November and December.
A general tip by many travelers is to avoid night clubs and bars or any area where there are a lot of travelers or expatriates in one place.
