Nyoman Kandia, a member of the Indonesian Tourism Promotion Board (BPPI) and a senior Tour Guide in Bali, told Bisnis Bali on Wednesday, January 2, 2013, that issues of transportation and cleanliness must urgently be addressed at Bali’s Ngurah Rai Airport.

He is concerned that the resulting service provided to tourists is provides a poor initial impression of Bali.
He called on the airport authority to supervise taxi service at the airport and prevent to the use of illegal taxis.
Still on the subject of Bali’s airport, Kandia decried the condition of public restrooms at the airport. He complained that public bathrooms have dirty and wet floor surfaces and emit unpleasant odors. He called for urgent action to clean up the bathrooms.
He also called on the airport to prepare special areas for smokers as required under law.
