Bali tourism remains strong despite Jakarta bomb blasts

Tourism business has not been affected in the Indonesian resort paradise of Bali, officials say, despite the recent deadly suicide bombers that attacked two luxury hotels in Jakarta.

“Hotel occupancy rate remains between 70 to 80 percent. There is yet negative reaction [on the inciden],” Bali Tourism Agency head Ida Bagus Ngurah Wijaya told The Jakarta Post on Saturday.

Wijaya also said that the agency has yet to see any decline of visitors from Australia, although the country has issued a travel warning following the deadly bomb blasts that are believed to have killed three Australians.

Wijaya said that tourism businesspeople were expecting the government take firm measure to prevent such terrorism act from ever happening again.
