Badung government banned the parade of ogoh-ogoh in Badung

Ogoh-ogoh parade conducted every year by the people of Bali. Ogoh-ogoh are made by young people of Bali to welcome Nyepi day. Nyepi this year will take place on March 31, 2014, and ogoh-ogoh parade will take place on March 30, 2014.


Badung regency government banned the parade of ogoh-ogoh 2014. The government banned the parade held throughout the Badung regency. This prohibition conveyed the reasons for maintaining social stability and security. Because on April 4, 2014 will be held parliamentary elections. Government intending to avoid political conflicts between different people who have the support of the parliamentary candidates.

Ogoh-ogoh parade ban in 2014 would upset the young men who had been looking forward to since last year. For ogoh-ogoh parade is held every year and is always greeted with delight by the citizens. Citizens who have prepared everything to make ogoh-ogoh definitely feel disappointed. The children will also feel disappointed with this decision.

If ogoh-ogoh are prohibited throughout Bali for political reasons, it would be ridiculous. Therefore, ogoh-ogoh parade has become a tradition that is fun for people of Bali. Every moment of the year is always awaited by the youth and children. Without ogoh-ogoh, Nyepi day will be less memorable. Tradition is always done by all the people of Bali.

Travelers who want to see the parade of ogoh-ogoh 2014 in Badung had to change his plan. Foreign tourists should see a parade of ogoh-ogoh in Ubud or Denpasar area. Until now in Denpasar and Gianyar government has not issued a ban on the parade for its citizens.

9 bad things about Bali

The bad thing about Bali very much. In addition to the good things that exist in Bali as a very friendly person, a unique culture, beautiful nature, diverse art, beautiful women, and cheap cost of living, there is also a bad thing that should be a concern of government, so that the existence of Bali stay awake, and always visited by tourists from foreign countries.

A lot of bad things about Bali as the criticism many people in the world. Island of Bali as a world tourism destination, appropriate attention to the bad things that damage the image of Bali. The role of government is necessary to eliminate the bad things about Bali. Even the farmers in Ubud are the people who feel the most bad about Bali in this sparkling tourism industry.

Here are 9 bad things about Bali:

1. Garbage is everywhere

About garbage which is a bad thing about Bali is the most visible. Everyone must know, Bali generates a lot of garbage. Each year the amount of waste generated is increasing. Even governments are powerless to handle garbage increasingly disrupted the lives of residents and tourists. The government is not responsive tackling garbage problem, resulting in a lot of garbage strewn everywhere, even the supposedly clean river, became dirty due to garbage that is always there.

Every year at Kuta Beach and the surrounding areas are always filled with garbage from the river. Garbage always be extra work for coastal managers and local residents. Many tourists feel disappointed visiting the beach, after seeing a lot of garbage in and around Kuta Beach. Looks very disgusting and dirty.

2. Traffic jams

Residents of Bali's economy is growing, impact on the increase in car ownership. However, the number of cars, no roads partly offset by accretion. This resulted in traffic jams that are difficult avoided in Bali. In Denpasar, every day is always a jam occurs. Traffic jams are bad for the tourism industry.

Formerly known as the island of Bali is a clean and pleasant. But now pollution due to congestion becomes a problem for the life of the people in Bali. The bad thing about Bali related traffic congestion needs to tackle better.

3. There is no guarantee against food hygiene

The bad thing about Bali there are no guarantees related to food that is eaten by tourists. Hotels and restaurants in Bali is increasing, especially in tourist areas. The restaurant is a place to get food for tourists. However, many restaurants do not notice the cleanliness and hygiene in the food they make. So many tourists became sick after eating at a restaurant that does not ensure food hygiene.

4. Criminal action in the sights

The bad thing about Bali related urbanization becomes a very serious problem for local residents. The number of people from outside of Bali, who tried to find a job in Bali, but do not have the expertise, so they must be trapped in difficult circumstances and situations. Such conditions lead to the increasing number of crimes committed by people who have difficulty getting money because they do not have a decent job. Many criminals are there in tourist spots targeting foreign tourists. Thus, the security of Bali as an international tourist destination is not properly secured. Local residents are very rarely commit crimes, but the new settlers who hoped to get money from the tourism industry should commit criminal acts to tourists to earn a lot of money.

Mugging, rape, robbery now common in Bali. Even many foreign tourists who become victims of crime. Most of the crimes committed by the Balinese migrants from outside Bali.

5. Locally made alcoholic beverages deadly

Arak Bali is one of the locals brew alcoholic beverages. Arak Bali has become a bad thing about Bali is always under fire. This drink is actually very safe in drinking by anyone. But the fraudulent acts committed by the traders to earn bigger profits without having to bother to produce on a large scale. Many Arak Bali mixed with water and then added to the methanol in order to obtain more fantastic effects. However, this action has been getting a lot of casualties. Many people die from Arak Bali mixed with methanol.

6. Beggars very much

Beggars are often disrupt tourists in Bali be a bad thing for Bali tourism activities. Tourists often feel uncomfortable with the beggars who always interfere with comfort. Beggars often demand the money to anyone. Their presence has always been a bad thing about Bali.

7. Bogus tour guides

The number of self-styled tour guide in Bali a bad thing that should be followed up. Bogus tour guides like to lie to the tourists. Even many self-styled tour guide extortion. Ironically, the self-styled tour guide lied about sights they pass on to tourists. So that tourists get the wrong information about the tourist places they visit in Bali.

8. Not timely

Time is money, time is selfishness. Time is sensitivity. In Bali, timeliness is not a thing that can be obtained easily. If you want to see the sun set in TanahLoh, and you should arrive there at 03:00 pm, do not expect you to arrive on time at Tanah Lot. Many obstacles that you are used to while on the road. Traffic jams, vehicle strike, drivers who do not care about the time, and much more that makes bad things about Bali.

9. corrupt police 

Some time ago, a tourist recording a corrupt police actions in Bali. Police corruption is commonplace in Bali. That is why tourists feel safe to be in Bali. They blatantly violated when the police bribe traffic.

Mount Kelud erupted in East Java

Indonesia has many volcanoes are still active. Java is a volcanic island that has the most, and most often erupt. Bali also has an active volcano, ready to erupt at any time without our knowledge. Mount Agung is one of Bali's volcanoes are still active. Although now in a state of rest, but we are not in when the mountain will erupt.

Today in East Java there is a volcano that has erupted, and is still going on until this time. Mountain that erupted in East Java named Mount Kelud in Kediri. Mount Kelud had erupted from the date of February 13, 2014. Material from the eruption of the mountain out and ejected to a height of 17 kilometers, including volcanic ash.

Residents who were evacuated around the mountain. No one is allowed to be around Mount Kelud with a radius of up to 15 kilometers. Because this area is very dangerous.

Mount Kelud is not currently erupting again, only a little material, but the impact of volcanic ash still occur. At the very least, the operationalization of the four major airports in Central Java and East Java suspended for reasons of flight safety. There are strange things happening at the moment Kelud erupted. Initially this mountain suddenly erupted twice. After two very large eruption, the mountain suddenly not showing signs of eruption. Silent as silent, calm, and quiet.

unt Kelud eruption, there are three people dead. The three men who died were located at a radius of 7 kilometers from the summit of the mountain. The thickness of the ash when the evacuation of the discovery of the victim reaches 20 cm. Currently there are evacuation of some residents who remained in the radius of 10 km.

Fortunately, the island of Bali is not affected by the eruption of Mount Kelud. However, many airlines are heading to Bali to go through the lines very much. The aircraft is heading to Bali should avoid clouds and dust from the eruption. Balinese people are not concerned with the conditions that hit Indonesia. They believe that god always protect the people of Bali. During the Balinese people still do rituals and love nature, then nature will not destroy the lives of the people of Bali.

Bali remains a target of drug trafficking

There are many cases related to the arrest perpetrators of drug dealers in Bali. Most of the people arrested carrying drugs to Bali is a foreign citizen. Even the amount of drug that is taken very much. With millions of dollars selling points. Such an event is concluded that Bali is a very good market for selling drugs.

One case of concern about drug world is about a female Australian citizen who bring marijuana weighing more than 4 kilograms. And now for parole. There was also a woman from England who was arrested carrying drugs to Bali.

Yesterday Customs officer Gusti Ngurah Rai International Airport, Bali, thwarting efforts methamphetamine smuggling 1.5 kilograms involving citizens of South Africa. The man named Stephen Henri Lubbe (58), was arrested by officers who suspected him shortly after stepping off the plane HX 6705 Hong Kong Airlines, Hong Kong-Denpasar route. Allegedly he is an international drug syndicate, if seen from the number and type of narcotic goods 1.5 kilograms of shabu or methamphetamine were seized. He is an international network of drug couriers.

Of the many cases of arrests of foreigners who bring drugs into Bali, it is concluded that there are many people who use drugs in Bali. Perhaps, the target market drug sales in Bali is not only foreign tourists, but also locals. Many residents become ill in Bali, after using the drug in a very long period of time. This condition can be known from the foundation that specifically address the issue of drug and its users.

Type methamphetamine is the most dominating of drug trafficking case in Bali. Then the distribution of marijuana, ecstasy, hasish, cocaine and heroin. Denpasar is the most common cases of drug trafficking.

The rise of drug trafficking in Bali is influenced by many things. The progress of tourism in Bali is also a factor, many entertainment venues supporting tourism that is often used as a drug transaction, the progress of science and technology, and also an increase in demand of the people of Bali as a result of changing lifestyles and economic progress.

Food poisoning in Bali?

Bali food poisoning suffered by foreign tourists have a negative impact on tourism image.

The food is supposed to provide health and fitness for the body, it resulted in damage or even death for some people. Many foreign tourists reported poisoned in Bali. Not even food, drinks also lead to foreign tourists must be sick. It is bad for the occurrence of Bali's tourism industry, which is known as the island with an abundance of beauty.

Food poisoning occurs because health standards set by the government are not within their condition in Bali as an international tourist destination. Poor standards valid globally in Indonesia is also applied in Bali. In addition to poor standards, lack of government supervision of the circulation of food products also provide the opportunity to commit fraud. The common practice is sometimes very detrimental to consumers.

Supervision of the restaurant and café also never done the government. Supervision is very necessary, in order to manage the restaurant and the café does not make food that could harm consumers. Periodic surveillance and giving sanction to a restaurant or café that cheating should be done. Necessary because not all provide good information to and clear to consumers about what ingredients are used in their dishes.

Indeed there is plenty of food and drinks dangerous circulating in Bali. Food and drink is not through the process of assessment and supervision of the authorities. One of the food products that are circulating in Bali at a health hazard is ketchup. Ketchup with the cheap price that includes the number of false testing, actually very dangerous if consumed. Most likely preservatives used for products that are dangerous liquids such as formalin. Some people are very sensitive to the harmful preservatives will feel discomfort in the throat and stomach after taking it.

Another product that is also dangerous to eat is dried noodle products. There are many products available in Indonesia dry noodles, also in Bali, which uses hazardous materials to preservatives. A few years ago has gained a lot of catching producers who cheat by using formaldehyde as a food preservative. Today the use of formaldehyde is expected to be done by the manufacturer of noodles.

In addition to processed foods, food poisoning is common among foreign tourists is because of allergies. Allergies can have a negative impact on the safety of a person's life if not handled properly. A few days ago, two foreign tourists from Australia died from food poisoning in Bali. It is estimated that they died because of allergies when eating seafood. Reported, the female presenters from both Australia holidaying in Bali with his family, they all fell ill. They are poisoning the food, the food you eat contaminated with germs.

The most terrible is poisoning Arak Bali. Arak Bali traditionally made ​​by the Balinese and sold by collectors and circulated by the seller. Before the sale, the seller is usually cheating with Arak Bali mixing with methanol. Hazardous liquids are typically used to burn. Already there are many victims of Arak Bali. Balinese people are dying because of drinking Arak Bali mixed with methanol. Many foreign tourists and some even dying blind.

This is Indonesian, weak oversight of the government of the circulation of food and drinks affects the health of citizens and the destruction of foreign tourists visiting Bali. The government should create an organizational oversight of food and beverage products that circulate in the community, as well as to supervise the restaurant, bar, and café on the products they provide to consumers. To avoid anymore bad things happen to us all.
