Tourism in Bali is not always positive. When something happens and there is a negative
impact people always tend to blame tourism," said N. Sugiri who is the Head of
Badung Tourism. For example, discotheques are considered a bad example for the local youth and illegal
cafes are destroying the natural environment of the beach. The best way to
counter all of these problems is to coordinate local community committees (Lembaga
Adat) to participate and take care of Bali.
Bali's tourism is a big support to the Indonesian government and foreign investment here
is always attractive. However the Balinese have to be careful not to destroy the
uniqueness of the culture of beauty of the island, as that's what the tourism here is
essentially the basis of.
