(10/28/2006)

Readers of Bali Update and balidiscovery.com continue to write and share what’s on their mind.

Our coverage of coverage [Kintamani Tourism Suffering] continue to elicit readers’ comments:

• Mark Maxwell wrote to add the following:

"I, too, have experienced the frightening and aggressive behavior by both the Kintamani police/guards who shamelessly extort a 'toll' from tourists as they pass through the town, and the vendors who, from very young age, force themselves through the cracks in your vehicle and refuse to let go until you have either screamed at them or driven away while they hang on. I have visited three times in 10 years and the same aggressive and intimidating attitude was experienced each time. I would strongly encourage folks to avoid this area until the locals have worked through this problem."

• Alan Jacobs in Australia had the following reaction to the article [The Robber Barons of Bali] :

"I totally endorse the sentiments of this article. I have been to Bali twice (the last time 10 years ago) when I stayed in Sanur. I fell in love with Bali and have continuously read books and kept up with the news about Bali. My concern is that it is now becoming just another commercially tacky tourist destination and I am now hesitant to return to Bali as I feel I will be most disappointed. I know you can't turn back the clock, but Bali was something really special. I hope it can return to its roots - and the attraction to the honest, culturally interested, tourist."

• As a follow up to the article [Made Pastika Hospitalized] we're pleased to report that General Pastika is recuperating well. Concerned at the news that he was ill, Australian Chris Miller wrote:

"Made Pastika had become the face of law enforcement in Bali in the past, of the bombings and drug problems he gave the people of Australia who have been to Bali great faith in the fact the he was able to bring these people to justice and once again make it a safe law-abiding place .. i wish him well and a speedy recovery and it would be a very good to see more of him in our news service as a good ambassador in restoring our confidence in Bali."

• Maria Ziegler, a reader in New Zealand, had the following to say about [Garuda to Drop Bali as a Secondary Club]:

”This is really awful for people from New Zealand. We had a direct flight over Brisbane and this will be stopped after 18 November. I had already paid for my booking to fly to Bali on December 2, 2006. Now I do not know where I am. It is bad public relations of Garuda to accept payment for flights that are not going to be honoured. My poor travel agent will have to sort this mess out. I am of the opinion that this is very poor management of a company who had built up its standing as a recommendable airline. And terrible for Bali, the loss of so many visitors!"
