Is Bali Safe? Bank on It

Rob Gilford of National Public Radio (NPR) was in Bali on November 20, meeting local members of the tourism industry and discoverying why people in Bali think the current blanket U.S. travel advisory for Bali is both unfair and completely inappropriate.

A long list of other European and Asian countries have taken special pains to specifically advise their travelers that while some parts of Indonesia may from time to time be unsettled, Bali has a spotless security record maintaining a continually conducive atmosphere for international tourism. Nonethless, exhibiting both a lack of creativity and local insight, the U.S. Government continues to punish the people of Bali by suggesting that U.S. visitors to the island may be somehow unsafe.

NPR's Rob Gilford spoke with the Bali Discovery Tours' J.M. Daniels, himself an American working and living in Bali, on his company’s "Money-Back-No-Demonstration" guarantee to foreign visitors to Bali.

In the words of Daniels, "there's no place in today's world where this American could travel where he would not feel himself at substantially higher risk than living in the very peaceful and secure environment that Bali has to offer."
