Former Indonesian Minister and a member of the United Nations World Tourism Organization’s Committee on Tourism Ethics, I Gde Ardika, has called on the provincial government of Bali to consider limiting the number of both domestic and international tourists allowed to visit Bali due to the island’s limited carrying capacity. Ardika warns Bali that it is grievously wrong if it believes it can accommodate a limitless number of tourism visitors. As reported by Beritabali.com, Ardika says now is the time for Bali to put quality of tourist visitors before the desire of merely seeking mere quantity. Ardika said the qualitative approach to tourism does not mean seeking only high-spending visitors, but emphasizes seeking visitors who hold the cultural values of Bali in high esteem. The highly respected tourism leader veteran says that as an island of limited area, Bali must inevitably face limits to tourism growth. For this reason, priority must be given to tourists who are in tune with the concept of developing cultural tourism on the island. © Bali Discovery Tours.
