Overseas Tourism Promotion

Bali Update #337's article Overseas Promotion Badly Coordinated? brought the following comments from Nicki Lawson writing from Australia:

"Last night we saw on TV the first ad for a flight to Bali since the bombing. I have now seen a deal on the net as well. It is really time to promote Bali and I would suggest that you don't leave it to the airlines and travel agents. Bali's tourism authority should put together a commercial that shows the beauty and all the wonders of Bali and remind people over here. Some people have never really understood the attraction or truth of Bali. Put it on television - spend the money on an international campaign. I've seen this with Fiji, Noumea, Tahiti and many other places. I don't know who foots the bill but it's time you get really proactive. We'll be back by the way and wish Bali all the very best."

Charging for Visas

The Bali Update Editorial: It Just Doesn't Add Up, which discussed the possible fallout of a proposed change in visa policies for Indonesia prompted K. Hiob of Australia to say:

"We spend 4 weeks in Bali every year since 1988. With Visa charges we would go somewhere else in future."

The Blessing of Putu

Finally, Nancy and Professor Rick Ostron of California State University at Chicano found our coverage in Bali Update #337 The Blessing of Putu Jagger Marcus Nichols made them a little homesick for Bali and Indonesia and wrote to say:

"It is stories like the Blessing of Putu that makes us look forward every week to your Bali Update. My husband and I lived in Indonesia for two years back in the 1970's and have been returning almost every year since. Our good friends in Bali, Gun Gun (Wayan Gunasta Pendet), Jango Pramartha, Surya Dharma, (Ida Bagus Surya Dharma), Tusuaria (Putu Suaria Soethama), and Bill Dalton keep teaching us about the many facets of Indonesian and Balinese culture, and this current story continues to do just that as well. Even though we have attended many, many ceremonies in Bali this story greatly enhances the understanding of the Nelu Bulanin ceremony.

Thank you for your valuable newsletter. Keep up the good work!"
