It’s soon going to cost 100% more to visit Bali's iconic Tanah Lot Temple in 2012.

The Regent of Tabanan, Ni Putu Eka Wiryastuti, told Beritabali.com that the decision to raise the tariff was reached after much study and extensive discussion.
“I have already fixed the increase for entrance to Tanah Lot at 100% and this amount has been entered into the regional budget (APBD) for 2012,” said Eka.
She said the new admission rates will take effect omce the price increase is socialized to the public.
“The new tariff will come into effect at the latest in March 2012. We don't want to wait too long, providing there are no obstacles. We want to socialize the decision before it is implemented,” said the Tabanan Regent.
