Why Bali Island ...!
I believe you have known this, and I also think we all agree that Bali is a magic name. Bali Island is the magnet itself. I have witnessed myself when I was in Flagstaff-Arizona, USA in 1980 to enjoy the magnificent beauty of one of the world wonder The Grand Canyon.
I met too many people there but one of them was an American tourist, a Russian born who approached me, probably because I was wearing a batik jacket (special design fabric that produced in Java-Indonesia) and asked me where I am from. I explained that I am from Indonesia.
He looked at me and said:" I know, it is in
I tried to make a map on the ground to make him know
where my Indonesia is. But, again He wanted to show me that He knew
it. He said:" Ok Paul, I remember now, it is in Thailand".
When I was in Seoul - South Korea in 1989, I have seen some ladies screamed when they knew that we came from BALI. They said: "we are working, we are collecting money and we have to go to Bali".
In the other zone, in Berlin-Germany, I met Johanes a cab driver who was very serious planning to visit BALI as well as John Dolley I met in Detroit-Missouri, USA in 2003 who was also very eager to visit this island.
Covarubias in 1935 probably the first person who wrote about Bali as a tourist destination since He was invited by Thomas Cook, Inc to promote this island then followed by numbers of writers with their own talents to emphasize the beauty and the magic power of the island which is also named as Island of Paradise, Island of Thousand Temples, Island of Festivals, Island of Gods and still many other names.
There are a lot of reasons why tourists wish to visit
BALI. The magic that attracted visitors not only because of the white
sandy beaches or good hotels or good foods or mountains and lakes
or rice fields and temples, but...the Balinese... the life style of
the Balinese themselves, about the farmer who always work in the rice
field starts at 5.00AM and end at 9.00AM then go home for coffee or
tea, sitting down in a banjar, a social meeting place belongs to the
member of the community with his friends, about his cock fighting,
about his hundred ducks, about his kids who pay homage in their shrine,
about their little boys or girls who learn how to dance and play music.
The festivals as island's magnets
Today, Bali has lots to offer;
In fact, there were not only tourists visited BALI but also the Presidents, Prime Ministers, Kings, Queens, Senior Citizens of the world have visited this island of paradise, for example: President Ronald Reagan, President George W. Bush, Prime Minister John Howard and many others.
I have received questions how to combine BALI and other islands such as Java, Madura, Sumatra, Nias, Mentawai, Kalimantan, Sulawesi, Maluku, Papua, Lombok, Sumbawa, Komodo, Flores, Sumba, Timor, Alor, Rote and Sabu.
