The hard-working team at Bali Discovery Tours received much-welcomed news on July 25, 2007, that its weekly newsletter Bali Update has received the prestigious PATA Gold Award 2007 - voted as the best travel e-newsletter in the Asia Pacific.

Bali Discovery Tours and a host of winners in other categories were granted gold status by the Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA) from among a fiercely contest's record total of 339 entries from 132 travel and tourism organisations.

The winners will be honoured at a special luncheon during the PATA Travel Mart 2007 in Bali on September 28, 2007.

The PATA Gold Awards are generously sponsored by the Macau Government Tourist Office.

Bali Update

First published on March 02, 1998, the Bali Update has "gone to press" 568 times under the continual editorship of Bali Discovery Tour's President Director, John M. Daniels.

Originally sent out in response to developing situations affecting Bali tourism, Bali Update is dispatched every Monday to a free subscriber base exceeding 19,000 readers.

Prior to the most recent honor, Bali Update has been lauded as "Bali's Truth Ministry" by TIME Magazine; "The Accepted Voice of Bali Tourism" by Travel Asia Magazine; the "Respected voice of Bali's tourism industry" by Indonesia Digest and cited for "Marketing Excellence" by the PATA Indonesia Chapter.

John M. Daniels, Bali Update's Editor, has spent more than 30 years in Indonesia and is the recipient of the Adikarya Wisata - the highest national award for service to Indonesian tourism given by the Government of Indonesia. Daniels is also a recipient of the Karyakarana Pariwisata award – the highest award for contributions to tourism and culture presented by the Governor of Bali.
