Bali named "best exotic destination" by Luxury Travel

The Indonesian resort island of Bali has again won "The Best Exotic Destination" award, this time from the London-based Luxury Travel Magazine, a tourism official said.

"The readers of Luxury Travel Magazine in 27 countries have chosen Bali as the best resort island," the head of the Bali Provincial Tourism Office I Gde Nurjaya said on Thursday.

The award was presented to Bali through the Indonesian Embassy in London, he said.

"We are waiting for information from the embassy on when the award will be sent to Bali," he said.

He expressed hope the award would further improve Bali`s tourism image in the eyes of the world community as a comfortable and secure tourist destination.

Last year, the province received similar awards from one of the leading magazines in the United States and two magazines with large circulations in Asia.

In 2006, 4.7 million readers of the US-based Time magazine chose Bali as the world`s best tourist island.(Antara-News)
