Bali security, the expectation of getting 2.3 million tourist visits in 2010. It has been implemented earlier by the Head of Bali Provincial Tourism Department, I.B. Subiksu and practitioner I.B. Sura Kusuma (I.B. Lolek), owner of the Pacific World Nusantara which also supported by the vice-chairman of Asita Bali: I Ketut Ardana, SH, and Managing Director of PT. Bali Sinar Mentari Tour & Travel. These figures that play an important role in tourism that the safety factor is the definite price to be paid for many tourists to come to Bali
Without solid security and stability, it is unlikely that tourists will come to the island. It was obvious after the first and the second Bali Bombings when Bali came into stagnation. Nearly, all of the foreign countries forbid their citizens to come by issuing travel warnings. Even now, travel warnings from the Australian government have not been revoked. However, Australians are still eagerly coming because the appeal of Bali is very strong. When we compare to other tourist destinations in the world, Bali is geographically close and considered an affordable destination.
“Apart from Bali security, Bali existing cultures must be kept well maintained because we are selling cultural tourism. It should also support by environmental hygiene, and the health of Balinese as the subject. Both of them are the perpetrator of the tourism business. Panoramas and nature with all their contents must also carefully maintain. Remain stable and not destroy by the rogue elements that are not taking any responsibility. To remember that the landscape is the most dominant tourist attraction”, said Ketut Ardana.
The condition of the people of Bali has allegedly changed because of tight competition with the new coming outsiders. This causes a shift in way of thinking so that Balinese society drive further away from the joints of mutual cooperation and togetherness as the original character of Balinese. Social conditions of the poor Balinese are not enabling them to fully participate in the tourism arena. Wild and foreign guides also become a serious threat to the tourism existence and appreciation of the condition of Bali. Booming arrivals to Bali are not properly controlling as it has negatively impacted the local communities with the settlers that could not detect and adapt to its characteristics. Many immigrants involve in various acts that could damage the social order.
Tourism image recovery of Bali security is expensive and time-consuming. Anyone who lives in Bali must be ready. Able to protect Bali well because his/her life depends on the arrival of visitors. Public reprehensible acts are creating a lot of concerns as criminal acts such as robbery, pickpockets, fraud, rape, and others now occur almost every day in Bali. The booming of immigrants is also becoming one source of the problems. A homework still shackling the Department of Police is the latent danger of terrorism that could explode at any time since their ideology is alive and hard to kill, although they have caused many victims to go in vain.
Currently, beggars, transvestites, street prostitution, rape, and robbery are the vivid colors decorating tourism areas of Kuta and its surroundings. Police Department is working hard to overcome the situation and capture the players involved in cases of beggars, transvestites and street prostitution. However, the court often charges them with mild sanctions of misdemeanor only, which is insufficient in creating deterrent effect so that those street workers keep coming back to their profession. –ws-
