(1/27/2014)

A report published in the Sydney Morning Herald (SMH) on January 25, 2014, saying two-thirds of Australian think Bali is not a safe holiday destination, is certain to cause concern to Bali’s tourism sector.

The SMH article also revealed that 20% of those who responded to the survey were not confident they would receive proper medical care if they were injured or got sick in Bali.

The report comes on the heels of the high profile sudden death of a Queensland woman and her teenage daughter after falling ill in East Bal on January 4, 2014. The survey was undertaken in mid-January.

The wide-ranging survey also expressed Australian doubts that they would receive fair treatment from the Indonesian police or court system if they encountered legal problems whilst on holiday in Bali.

The poll was conducted by UMR against a random sample of 500 Australians.

Among the specific results of the survey:

  • 21% of those interviewed said they had visited Bali in the past.
  • 64% of those who had visited the Island saw Bali as a safe place.
  • 35% or one-in-three saw Bali as unsafe.
  • 72% of the people who have not traveled to Bali said they thought the island was unsafe.
  • As a subgroup in the survey, 69% of the women had “reservations” about Bali as compared to only 60% of the men who expressed reluctance.
  • Overall 32% of those who responded thought Bali was a safe destination to visit.
  • Only 27% of those surveyed felt proper medical service was available in Bali.
  • Among those who had visited Bali, the number who felt proper medical care was available rose to 50%.
In 2013 some 900,000 Australians visited Bali, making it the largest source of inbound tourists to the Island
