Making Light of the Dark Side

Indonesia Institute Reveals that Bali Does NOT Rank Among the Most Dangerous Destinations for Australian Holidaymakers

(7/29/2013)

The Australian-based Indonesia Institute recently published its own rebuttal to media portrayals of Bali as having a “dark side” – incorrectly suggesting that Bali is among the most dangerous destinations for Australian holidaymakers.

Citing data from the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) that records Australian deaths abroad over the past year, Bali did not rank anywhere near the top of the list for the deadliest destinations.

Deaths of Australian traveling abroad in selected countries over the past 12 months:

  1. Thailand - 111
  2. Philippines - 68
  3. Greece -  60
  4. Vietnam - 54
  5. US - 51
  6. Indonesia - 48 (Bali: Approximately 40)
  7. Germany - 41
  8. Hong Kong - 40
  9. China - 38
  10. UK - 28
The Indonesia Institute said that many Australians visit Bali without travel insurance; drink in excess while on the island; ride motorbikes dressed in tea shirts, boardies and thongs; and ostentatiously splash large sums of money around.

The report continued: “Bali is suffering from poor infrastructure, pollution, corruption and simply too many tourists (rather than 'travelers') who treat this island as if it is their own backyard. It's not.”

Concluding, the Indonesia Institute says: “But despite all this, over 99% of Australians come home safely having had a really good holiday...even though we don't always deserve to do so!"
