(3/22/2013)

Youth representing 13 communities (banjar) in Kuta, Bali are complaining that the image of Kuta as a tourism destination has been “cheapened” by the wide variety, diverse quality and extreme behavior of that areas international visitors.

As reported by the State News Agency Antara, I Gede Ary Astina, representing the Youth of the Traditional Village of Kuta (Pemuda Desa Adat Kuta), said, “There is the indication that the quality of tourists coming to Kuta is declining as seen from the behavior.”

“The are many embarrassing cases of poor behavior by tourists of low quality. There are tourist shooting at taxis, fugitives from Interpol escaping to Bali, tourist stabbing people with knives and even a case of tourists having sex on temple grounds,” he added.

He complained that such incidents are depicting Kuta and Bali in the international media as a place where tourist visitors are free to do whatever they like when on holiday.

The Pemuda Desa Adat Kuta is urging the local government to become more selective and filter the tourists allowed to visit Kuta.

Offering a further, ominous warning, Astina said he feared that the tourist image of Kuta was being downtrodden and that activities by visitors have the potential of creating racial unrest.

At the same time, Pemuda Desa Adat Kuta is calling on the government to educate local citizens to impose standards of behavior for visitors and not become the “slaves of tourism.”

Concluding, Astina said: “It needs to be underlined that the tourists need Bali and Bali does not need to be subservient to visitors. By preserving the dignity of the Balinese, respect and appreciation (from the tourist) will be reaped from tourist visitors. The mentality of slavery must be eliminated.”
