Is Bali Safe? She'll Be Right, Mate!

As it Was in the Beginning, Is Now, and Continues to Be: Bali is as Safe as Safe Can Be. Canberra Lowers Its Travel Advisory for the Rest of Indonesia.

(10/29/2001) Last week (23/10), the Australian Consulate published the latest travel advisory from their Embassy in Jakarta stating it "no longer judges it necessary to advise Australians to consider deferring normal business or holiday travel to most parts of Indonesia."

While recommending "continued vigilance," the Australian Embassy acknowledged that the intensity of recent protests had diminished. The latest protest staged by the Islamic Development Party (PPP) at the U.S. Embassy was of short duration and, according to press reports, drew only tens of protestors.

Reflective of the prevailing peace and lack of demonstrations in Bali, the Australian Embassy continued to treat Bali as a separate case. The latest Australian travel advisory remained consistent in this regard, pointing out that tourist services in Bali and nearby Lombok are operating normally.

With some justification, many Australian holidaymakers continue to call Bali their home away from home.
