Bali is a destination on the list not to be visited by 2020

Bali is a destination on the list not to be visited by 2020
Travel media from the United States, Fodor's Travel, publishes a list of destinations to visit and it is better not to be visited in 2020. Interestingly, in the list of destinations that are better considered not to be visited in 2020 or No List, Fodor's Travel, is Bali as one of destination on the list. The reason is that Bali, the most visited island in Indonesia, has suffered and experienced many of the side effects of mass tourism in recent years, the government levies a tax on tourists to help overcome the buri effect of mass tourism on the environment.

In 2017, Bali was declared a rubbish emergency area, due to too much plastic waste on the beach and waters. The Bali Environment Agency notes that the island of Bali produces 3800 tons of garbage every day, with only 60 percent ending up in landfills. A clear observation for anyone visiting the island of Bali.

Another thing that is the focus of attention by Fodor's Travel is the scarcity of clean water in Bali due to the construction of villas and golf courses that have an impact on local farmers. Also obscene tourist behavior, especially in the central shrine of worship, makes authorities in Bali try to make regulations and guidelines. Tourists who visit religious sites wear swimsuits, climb holy sites, and generally do not respect local customs and cultural norms.

Tourists after surfing cross beside the garbage pile during the west wind season and during the rainy season on the coast of Kuta, Bali. As a result of the occurrence of the west wind season in the waters of Bali has an impact on the amount of rubbish that was washed away by ocean currents so that it has accumulated on the coast of Kuta tourist area. Besides Bali, there are still other famous destinations in the world that are not recommended by Fodor's Travel to be visited in 2020. The destinations such as Angkor Wat in Cambodia, Hanoi Train Street or train lines in Hanoi, Vietnam, Barcelona in Spain, and Big Sur in California. No List or list of destinations that are better considered not to be visited from Fodor's Travel focuses on environmental, ethical, and sometimes political issues.

The underlying problems are the problems that we will face in the next decade. At the end it is written that the decision is left to the reader because the reader is planning his own trip. According to the magazine, which is displayed in the No List is not a prohibited list. On the contrary, this is a promise when we actually discuss the goals mentioned here, in an amazing place, we will travel responsibly.
