Tourists visiting Bali as their holiday destination diversion of the feeling forced. Because of their intent in wanting to France, but for fear of their safety, so they switched to Bali.

Post-terror Paris, France, the Indonesian government tightened security in areas vital to anticipate the entry of terrorist networks or other criminals. Including Bali, security and entrance examinations in Bali was tightened to prevent the occurrence of similar incidents.

Security and inspection entrance Bali like in Gilimanuk, involves a number of personnel from the ranks of the police and army. Examination conducted on persons, vehicles and goods. In addition, checks are also carried out in each sector of the police who carry out the operation on the highway.

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. Since Friday, November 13, 2015, all of the entrance to Bali, over the air at Ngurah Rai International Airport in Tuban, as well as other land or air port, enhanced security and heavily guarded by the police.

Bali also has experienced the tragedy of bombing, as yan occurred in France in 2015. The motive committed by terrorists when the Bali bombing is sara dislike and hatred against those who came from western countries, particularly the USA. Motif committed against France was stopped by the same, which is unhappy with the involvement of the country to war in Syria. But the terrorists set the wrong target, so that civilians who do not know anything become victims of terrorist attacks, such as in Bali in 2002 and 2005, also in France in 2015.

Bombings in France in 2015 to make the Bali police to be on full alert, because in Bali there are a lot of people from Europe who are on vacation. Bali also many tourists from France. Police increased vigilance and security in a number of entrances. Among these, Ngurah Rai International Airport in Tuban, Port Gilimabuk in Jembrana, and Port Benoa in South of Denpasar.

Some vital objects in the area of ​​Kuta Utara also received attention more security than the previous days.

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.

Lake 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.
