The chairman of the organizing board of the Indonesian Association of Entrepreneurs (APINDO), Drs. Panudiana Kuhn, used an article in Bisnis Bali to focus on the many infrastructure deficiencies surrounding many of Bali's leading tourist attractions.

Road Quality

According to Panudiana, before visitors arrive at a Bali tourism location they must often first endure poor road conditions that can endanger their safety and, at the very least, create discomfort and delays.


Similarly, Panudiana reminded Bali's administrators that tourist are keenly aware of cleanliness, a fact tourist managers need always to take into account. He pointed to the tendency for piles of garbage and trash to be found in key tourist areas, such as Kuta beach. To resolve this situation, he insists that the government create garbage receptacles and trash barrels conveniently located and regularly emptied to remedy stop the littering taking place along Kuta's beachfront.

The respected businessman said that keeping Bali clean makes good business sense as a clean Bali will more easily attract tourist visitors and tourism investors.

Also mentioned by Panudiana was the lack of quality toilet facilities near major tourism objects in Bali. For 2011 called on the government to launch a "five-star" toilet campaign at all tourist destinations on the island.

Admission Fees

On the subject of admission fees for visitors to tourist objects in Bali, Panudiana acknowledged and accepted the current practice of differential pricing for foreign and domestic tourists.

For instance, the cost of visiting the Kintamani volcano has recently increased from Rp. 3,000 (US$0.33) to Rp. 10,000 (US$1.10) per visitors. He opined that changes in admission fees can be introduced only after there are first discussions and agreement between travel agents, guides and tourism object managers. Once an increase is agreed, the increased fees will help supplement much needed local government revenues.

He accepted that entrance fees of between US$1.00 – US$2.50 per person for foreign visitors will not deter visitors and that the difference between local resident's admission charges and that levied for foreign visitors can oftentimes be ten time higher for overseas visitors.

Panudiana was quick to add, however, that the supporting infrastructure enjoyed by visitors paying these admission fees should meet international expectations, especially as regards the quality and cleanliness of toilet facilities and dining options located near attractions.

He continued, calling for good government control and monitoring of the facilities presented at all tourism objects. This must also include careful attention to security and safety issues by involving local community enforcement teams (pacalang).

Panudiana said the number of visitors to Bali tourism objects is on the increase, reflecting rising arrival numbers overall to Bali.
