A bomb blast 2015 in France, the situation in Bali is also tense

Bombings in France in 2015, the impact on the state of tourism in Bali. Bali police provide extra security to the entrance to the island of Bali. Bali tightened security after the terrorist attacks of ISIS in Paris, France.

Bombings in France in 2015, Bali was also affected

Bombings in France (2015)
The impact of terrorist attacks in France in 2015, will affect economic conditions in Bali. For residents of the Balinese are very dependent on the tourism sector in meeting the needs of life and the economy. The bomb that took place in Paris in November 2015, will reduce the number of tourist arrivals from France to the island of Bali. It is estimated that, tourists from France will lose as many as 27 000 people in 2016 and 2017. Because of the tragedy in 2015 will make people traumatized and afraid to go out of the house.

Bali also has experienced the tragedy of bombing by terrorists, similar to what happened in France in the 2015's. Bali bombing that happened in 2002 and 2005 resulted in Bali's economy being crushed and sunk in a very long time. Many people lost their jobs, many businesses in the hospitality and restaurant business tourism center to be shut down. Tragedy is a crime against humanity bombing global destructive mental and psychic people affected.

Bali bombing 2002
Attacks carried out by ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) certainly cause tremendous fear, including the Europeans to travel to the tourist areas, especially to Bali because Bali has also received bomb threats, and left hundreds of people dead in an instant. Europeans certainly would be deterred for a vacation to Bali.

In addition to the 2015 bombing in France that makes Europeans into trauma, as well as some Indonesian people involved in the movement of ISIS. Information Indonesian involvement in the movement of ISI will make Indonesia into a country with a low level of confidence to the security of bomb terror attacks, especially Bali, as the island is a vacation spot foreigners from various countries, and many tourists from Europe who vacation in Bali.

France ranked seventh as tourists who come to Bali. Data from the Bali Provincial Tourism Office, tourists visit France to October 2015 was 115 288 people. Increase from October of last year some 113 982 people.

Predicted, a result of the bombing in 2015 in France, Bali will lose about 20 616 tourists in 2016 and in 2017 will lose about 6586 tourists from the total number of tourists this year. European tourists a stay in Bali could spend $ 1,600.

If calculated on the economy, then the loss of Bali in 2016, which caused the loss of 20 616 tourists from France, amounting to US $ 33510900. The prediction of a decrease in the number of French tourists to this analogy of a pattern of decline in European tourists in general. European tourists pattern usually takes over two years to the process of recovery time. This is similar to the impact of the terror that occurred in London, England, in 2005 to the number of European tourists to Bali. Not only the French tourists who will experience a decrease of the number of visits to Bali, as well as European tourists.

The water in Lake Batur has been contaminated by toxins

Lake Batur, Kintamani, Bangli Regency, Bali

Lake Batur in Caldera on Mount Batur, Kintamani, Bangli Regency, Bali
Lake Batur in Caldera on Mount Batur, Kintamani, Bangli Regency, Bali

Lake Batur is now causing a lot of problems and environmental issues. Silting, pollution, garbage piles, and the quality of the water unfit for drinking.

Lake Batur in Caldera on Mount Batur, Kintamani, Bangli Regency, Bali
Lake Batur is located in Kintamani, Bangli regency, Bali. Located in the caldera of Mount Batur, which is known as a caldera that is very broad and one of the largest in the world. Lake Batur is also the largest lake in Bali, and become a supplier of water for several areas around Mount Batur.

Regions in Lake Batur is the residence and settlement of citizens of the Balinese. Since the beginning, the lake area became inhabited by the Balinese. One of the village with the most primitive population in Bali and live around the lake is the village of Terunyan.

Terunyan village residents rely heavily on Lake Batur. They are very dependent on the lake because they use the lake water for drinking water. They also work as fishermen, and fishing in the lake.

One of the results of laboratory tests in Bangli in last June to the quality of water in Lake Batur, produces a report which is very surprising. That the levels of Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD) and Biological Oxygen Demand (BOC) in water taken at Lake Batur is now experiencing very rapid increase from previous years. BOD water from Lake Batur today is 2.5 mg / liter. While the highest levels of BOD to be worthy to drink water is 2 mg / liter. Also for COD content of the water in Lake Batur today is 13.7 mg / liter, from the highest level for drinkable water is 10 mg / liter.

Lake Batur in Caldera on Mount Batur, Kintamani, Bangli Regency, Bali
Water conditions in Lake Batur unfit for drinking, caused by waste from residential areas around the lake. It can be seen that the settlements around the lake is now experiencing a surge in the number of people very rapidly. They dwelt around the lake because the lake water is as a resource to meet the needs of their agricultural land. Most residents are farmers in Kintamani.

Apart from the waste originating from the settlements around the lake, the water pollution in Lake Batur also from agricultural land around the lake. Agricultural use inorganic fertilizer dangerous and harmful chemical drugs to eradicate the pest, also is the cause of water pollution in Lake Batur. Agriculture around the lake by using synthetic chemical fertilizers causes the lake becomes toxic. During the rainy season, all the agricultural land around the lake will be washed contaminated rainwater. Rainwater will take soil and dust contaminated toward the lake. Because the lake is the last of the estuary rainwater. Indirectly, non-organic agricultural activities around the lake will make the lake water polluted by toxic weed killers and synthetic chemical fertilizers.

The activities of people around the lake also became one of the causes of water pollution. Many residents who live around Lake Batur wash their clothes in the lake. Washing residual soap will dissolve into the lake. Activity wash in the lake that is done continuously will speed up the process of environmental destruction.

To that end, the necessary regulatory and decisive action from the government against activities that could damage and pollute the water at Lake Batur. Action against breaches should be done, if not, then the pollution of Lake Batur will continue to occur, so that the water in Lake Batur is not feasible to meet the needs of citizens.

The more shallow, Lake Batur will make drowned settlements

Lake Batur in Kintamani Bangli very poor condition

The more shallow, Lake Batur will make drowned settlements
Lake Batur in Kintamani Bangli
Lake Batur in Kintamani Bangli, is increasingly worrisome condition. Not only the problems of pollution and damage to ecosystems in the lake, but the problem of silting were difficult to overcome, because it is a natural processes and natural cycles. Siltation in Lake Batur, Kinamani, Bangli, occur because of the burden of volcanic ash from Mount Batur are constantly drifting toward the lake. During the rainy season, the ash is around the mountain peaks inside the caldera constantly hanyud towards the lake. The ash comes from the eruption that occurred decades ago. Slowly but continuously occurs, the ashes will settle to the bottom of the lake, and resulted in the silting of the lake.

Lake Batur in Caldera of Mount Batur, Kintamani, Bangli Regency, Bali
Not only is derived from volcanic ash around the lake, silting in Lake Batur, Kintamani Bangli, also caused by a fish farming cages in the lake. Fish farming in cages in the lake directly impact on the process of silting up the lake. Feed the fish in the cages will produce nitrate and waste products from the fish. A waste of fish continuously will accumulate under the cages, so that it becomes a pile of mud that resulted in the silting of the lake.

The results of organic and non-organic garbage into the lake also the greeting of the impact in accelerating the process of silting up of Lake Batur. Scour soil from agricultural land during the rainy season accelerates silting. Shallowing of the lake during the rainy season is very pronounced. Lake water will be felt meluad and flooded residential areas around the lake. Because of the shallow lake, the water will be noticeably higher from year to year.

Until now there has been no sosuli to address the problem of silting in Lake Batur. Because the vast lake and is a natural process, it is very difficult to perform basic dredging a deep lake. Lake Batur is very wide and is one of the lake water supplier for water needs in Bali.

During the dry season, the Lake Batur in Kintamani Bangli will recede, at low tide will be found that plastic waste in the bottom of the lake. During the rainy season, the lake as if it meluat, the water was getting higher every year, whereas the higher lake water caused by increasingly shallow lake. Houses around the lake will be submerged during the rainy season, and will return to normal during the dry season.

The government must begin to take action to save the environment in Bali, especially in the Lake Batur. Taxes on the tourism sector should be set aside for funding in environmental conservation. Tax money from the tourism sector should be set aside for nature in Bali. Because nature in Bali has contributed much to the government. If that is not done then the nature in Bali will be destroyed, and the tourism sector in Bali will be lost and abandoned.

Large gap between tourism businesses in Bali

Large gap between the tourism business in Bali can be seen in terms of capital. People with large capital will run a tourism business on a large scale and can benefit greatly as well. While people with small capital, even without capital, will become part of the group of poor businessman.

Large investors typically establish accommodation facilities, restaurants, discotheques, shopping centers. The big advantage will also be obtained. Giving rise to rich people who can affect many things. This large investors mostly are not Balinese. Most of them are foreigners and people from outside Bali who took the opportunity to benefit greatly from the tourism business in Bali.

Although large investors are foreigners, but the presence of large investors, it will form a larger employment and more. So the opportunity to have this job by the local population became more, with greater opportunities. Therefore Bali is the island with the number of jobs that are very large in Indonesia.

Different thing with the small investors even without capital. They will form their own community in order to survive and enjoy the opportunity to benefit from the tourism business in Bali. The small investors are usually engaged in the services sector. They work as a massager, tattoos, tour guides, selling souvenirs, and even many who berkeja as prostitutes.

Among the many tourism players with small capital, some of which pose a complex problem, and affects the image of tourism in Bali. One is prostitution. Prostitution in Bali is not only done by women, also carried out by men who are often referred to as a gigolo. They are a scourge negative for Bali, but they also want to get the work of the tourism industry in Bali.

High gap between tourism actors also cause major problems for local residents. The major investors are able to do anything to build a new business in Bali. They will take up a lot of land in Bali to build accommodation, restaurants, and villas. Evident in Bali, a lot of land in Bali turned into a means of accommodation and hospitality. Rice fields, forests, beaches, have all been the target of large investors.

The small investor is only capable of being complementary in this industry. They will fight hard to be able to be part of and derive little benefit from the infrastructure built by large investors. Sometimes they are considered garbage and disturbing the activities of large investors.
