Listen to Your Mother
Hong Kong Man in a World of Trouble After Being Caught Smoking on a Flight from Surabaya to Bali

A 39-year-old Hong Kong man has been ordered to report regularly to Bali police while they investigate allegations that he was caught smoking in the bathroom of Citilink Airline Flight QC-621 flying from Surabaya to Bali on Wednesday, May 25, 2016.

Liem Nang Sang was flying with his 69-year-old mother when he caused smoking alarms to sound in the airplane’s toilet while the aircraft was airborne.

Beritabali.com reports that the plane’s Captain, Teguh Kristyanto, notified the Bali Airport Authority of the incident causing the plane and the man to be met by security personnel immediately upon landing in Bali. During the subsequent interview by police, the man’s mother, Soe Fen Tj Ioe, said her son suffered from psychological problems. The woman also told how she had scolded her son when he tried to light a cigarette in the departure terminal at Surabaya’s airport, and in so doing perhaps set the stage for the man's determined cigarette break on the short 40-minute flight.

Prior to flying to Bali, Liem arrived in Surabaya on a Singapore Airline flight where he spent a number of days. In Bali, the man held bookings at The Bali Rani Hotel in Kuta.

Police in Bali are trying to determine how to handle a potential criminal violation carrying a potential prison term of 5-years for endangering aviation. Police are undertaking laboratory testing to determine if drug use was involved and psychological examination to determine if the man can be held legally responsible for his actions.


Teaching a Lion to Purr
KADIN Calls on Lion Air to Raise its Games and Cease Hostile Acts Against Transportation Ministry

Jakarta Globe reports that the Indonesian Chamber of Commerce (KADIN) is urging the Indonesian air carrier Lion Air to improve its management practices following a serious passenger handling error in Jakarta on May 10, 2016, that sent international passengers to a domestic terminal, almost by-passing immigration and customs in the process.

After the airport mix-up, the Indonesian Ministry of Transportation imposed sanctions on the airline’s operations.

In what may have been retaliation for the official sanctions imposed on the Airline’s ground operations, Lion Air suspended 217 flights on 93 domestic routes and 10 international flights for 30 days until June 18, 2016.

Unhappy with the sanctions, Lion Air also made a formal police complaint on May 19, 2016, against Suprasetyo, the Transportation Ministry’s director general for air transportation, alleging abuse of power.

Meanwhile, KADIN is calling on the Airline to withdrawn the criminal complaint against a Ministry official and dedicate its energies to improving its services to the public. Carmelita Hartoto, vice chairwoman of the land transportation committee at KADIN, said: "Lion Air has the biggest market share in the country's domestic aviation market but in terms of its service quality, there remains a lot of room for improvement."

Carmelita pointed to the large amounts of complaints posted on social media against Lion Air as further proof of a need for improvement the Airline’s operation.

The KADIN official also expressed that Lion Air’s oversight put national security at risk by frustrating border controls. Adding: "There is an existing terrorism threat and some foreign passengers were able to slip into the country with ease. The incident was also not properly reported to the authorities." Lion Air only reported their error to officials after news of the incident began trending on social media.

Kadin has expressed its appreciation to the Government for taking tough action against Lion Air and in a similar case in Bali committed by AirAsia on May 16, 2016.

Up On the Roof
Australian Man Facing Deportation After Cavorting on the Roof of a Kuta Hotel

Beritabali.com and NusaBali report that a highly agitated Australian visitor to Bali, Kele R. Sanele (31,) climbed atop the 3rd-floor roof of the Hotel Inna Grand Kuta on Jalan Pantai Kuta on Wednesday, May 25, 2016, to scream at passing pedestrians, hotel staff and police who were trying to coax the man off the roof.

Wearing only a pair of shorts, Kenele was first seen by a security officer at 11:30 am when he ran from the beach into the area surrounding the hotel. A short time letter Sanele, who guards believe was intoxicated, was seen sitting on the hotel’s rooftop screaming angrily at anyone who would listen. When police arrived on the scene a short time later, they tried unsuccessfully to coax the man off the roof. Officials from the National Search and Rescue Squad (BASARNAS) were equally unsuccessful in urging the Australian off the roof.

Suffering from the heat. Sanele eventually climbed off the roof at 3:20 pm and took a nap atop a wall on the second floor of the hotel. At this point, police subdued the man, also recovering his wallet and iPhone in the process.

The police brought the man to the immigration quarantine center in Jimbaran where officials refused to take him into custody, saying he had not been charged with any immigration violations.

Police are now holding the Australia pending the preparation of charges that will permit his eventual deportation.


Fire Storm at the Dorm
Fire Destroys Part of the Island Hostel in Legian, Bali

A fire has destroyed a dormitory room at The Island Hostel on Jalan Raya Padma Utara, Gang Abdi No. 18 in Legian on the morning of Tuesday, May 24, 2016.

No injuries were reported as the result of the fire, believed to have been caused by a short circuit in a water heater that sent guests of the hostel running for safety onto a nearby road.

NusaBali reports that the fire was first discovered by a security guard who heard the sound of the blaze on the third floor of the hostel “owned” by an Australian. The guard raised the alarm, summoning help to discover the source of the sound, a fire in a third-floor dorm room housing 12 beds. Meanwhile, other guards knocked on the remaining room doors of the hostel, helping to evacuate to safety a total of 29 guests.

The fire quickly enveloped and destroyed the building, fueled by strong winds than fanned the flames.

Seven fire trucks from Badung responded to the scene ten minutes after they were called, but the remote location of the building on a small lane made access to the fire problematic.

The fire was brought under control by 10:15 am.


Grounded in Taro
Gianyar Government Temporarily Halts Helicopter Tours from Elephant Safari Park

Bali Post and NusaBali report that the traditional community surrounding the Bali Elephant Safari Park is complaining about the noise and disturbance caused by the tourist helicopter based at the Park.

The Village leader of Taro, I Wayan Suardika, has written a complaint to the Regent of Gianyar with copies to the Regency's Transportation Office and other agencies and sections of the regional government.

NusaBali says the letter dated May 16, 2016, made four main complaints regarding the helicopter operation licensed to PT Bali Reksa Pertama from the Taro base. First, local residents say the helicopter-landing pad is too close to the Suba Toya Temple in Taro, rice fields and local residences. Objections were also raised to the low altitude of the helicopter when flying over the Pujung Sari Desa Pakrama Taro Kelod Temple that villagers contend disregards the religious sanctity of the area. Second, local agriculturalists are purportedly complaining that the noise of the helicopter causes livestock to panic, with one farmer saying many of his chickens have died due to the strong downdraft of the helicopter when coming in for a landing. Third, residents complain about the frequency of landings during the course of a day. And, fourth, residents are questioning the legality of the helicopter’s operation and landing pad and whether or not the required permits and licenses are in hand.

NusaBali says that a representative of the helicopter operation, I Wayan Sukiaten, characterized the complaints on Tuesday, May 24, 2016, as coming from a single individual and said further investigation would be needed in the field.

Sukiaten said the Taro helicopter operation was still in a “trial operation” period during which the impact of the aircraft is being studied and permits and licenses are being finalized.

Helicopters have been operating form Taro since 2002, but were suspended after the Bali bombing, and reintroduced in 2015 with the purchase a new aircraft.

Local officials visited the operation on Friday, May 18th to consider first-hand the operation of a tourism helicopter and any possible negative effects on the surrounding area.

Officials confirmed the helicopter hangar in Taro was built without the required building permit specifying its planned final use.

Gianyar officials have issued an official order halting the helicopter operation from Taro until such a time until the business holds all the required permits and licenses. In response, Sukiaten expressed his disappointment with the order, saying warnings that allow the business to address any faults or shortcomings were the norm in Bali in such situations.

The Bali Sky Tour helicopter also has a landing pad at its corporate head office in South Denpasar.


Heart Attack Claims Chinese Tourist
Chinese Tourist Dies of Apparent Heart Attack at Hotel in Jimbaran, South Bali

A 58-year-old Chinese tourist Zhao Jianguo has died of a suspected heart attack during a holiday in Bali.

NusaBali reports that the man fell ill in his room near Taman Mumbul, South Bali, in the early hours of Monday, May 23, 2016 and was rushed to a nearby hospital where he died a short time later.

Pending confirmation by an autopsy that will be performed only with the family’s approval, police have concluded the man died of a heart attack.


A Dozen Years in a Bali Jail
Bulgarian Sentenced to 12 Years in Prison for ATM Fraud Scheme in Bali

Judges have handed down a 12-year prison sentence and a Rp. 100 million fine for Bulgarian Dimitar Nikolov found guilty of defrauding tourists using ATM machines in Bali.

Working with an accomplice, Andrey Kolev, Iliev was charged with making physical alterations in ATM machines that allowed them to steal credit card numbers and PIN numbers.

The elaborate and sophisticated fraud involved fake pin pads, remote cameras, piping and a WiFi router.

Reports from various credit card suppliers entered as evidence at the trial showed that the thieves managed to make off with more US$25,000 in pilfered cash during their crime spree in Bali that took place in December 2014.

April Arrivals to Bali Up 21.3%
Bali by the Numbers: Foreign Tourist Arrivals January-April 2016 Up 16.77%. Will Bali End 2016 with 4.6 Million Visitors?

Official foreign tourist arrivals to Bali for April 2016 recorded 380,614 foreign visitors, an increase of 21.3% over the 313,763 visitors in the same month in 2015.

On a cumulative basis for the first four months of 2016, Bali has welcomed 1,471,064 foreign tourists, an increase of 16.77% year-on-year against 2015.

If Bali sustains the current average growth rate in foreign tourists arrivals through the end of 2016, it will end the year with a record 4.6 million tourists.

Australians are back in the top position as a source of visitors to Bali. Month-on-month, Australian arrivals in April totaled 91.250 – an increase of 19.1% over April 2015. For the first four months of 2016, Australian arrivals at 334,529 are up 6.9% representing a total 22.74% market share.



In second place as a source of foreign visitors to Bali are the Mainland Chinese. Chinese arrivals in April at 66,848 increased 34.18% when compared to the same month one year before. PRC visitors to Bali for the first four months of 2016 comprise a 21.45% market share totaling 315,512, representing a 29.92% improvement over the same four months in 2015.

Despite the stronger growth rate in PRC visitors to Bali, if Australian arrivals end the year up 6.9% and Chinese visitors are up 29.92%, this will still leave Australia with a total visitor count of more than 1 million and China with just under 900,000. In other words, predictions that Chinese travelrs would soon move into the top position among all foreign arrivals  to Bali may be premature.



Singapore and Malaysian arrivals to Bali continue to turn in a lackluster performance, down respectively 4.4% and 8.25%.

Very Strong growth in arrivals for the period January-April were demonstrated by the U.K. (+46.84%), India (+57.49%), USA (+33.63%), France (+24.06%), Germany (+38.78%), the Netherlands (+13.69%), Russia (+27.46%), New Zealand (+10.8%) and Canada (+20.57%).


Hand Off Our Kids!
President Joko Widodo Decrees New Punishments Including Castration and Electronic Monitoring for those Convicted of Sexual Misconduct with Children

In response to a perceived increase in cases of criminal sexual abuse targeted against children, Indonesian President Joko Widodo has issued a decree amending the 2002 law on children protection and providing tougher punishment for those convicted of sexual violence against minors.

The law provides for the death penalty in most egregious cases, and two year’s chemical castration and electronic monitoring for convicted sexual predators.

Quoted by The Jakarta Globe, President Widodo said at a press conference on May 25, 2016, “The law is designed to address the urgency caused by sexual crimes against children, which have increased significantly.”

The Presidential decree provides for chemical castration and electronic detection bracelets to monitor the behavior of sexual predators once they are released from prison.

Included in the decree, punishment options for sexual predation on children now provide for the death penalty, life imprisonment and a minimum sentence of 10 years to a maximum of 20 years for those found guilty of sexually interfering with children.

The President said: “Extraordinary crime requires extraordinary management. We hope for this regulation to impose deterrent effect to perpetrators and reducing sexual offenses against children."

The decree from the President comes after a series of high profile sexual crimes against children and the arrest of known foreign pedophiles in Bali.


A Dose of Leniency for Two Airlines
Transportation Ministry Dilutes Punishments Given to Lion Air and AirAsia for Poor Airport Ground Handling

The Jakarta Globe reports that the Transportation Ministry has made a legal retreat and reduced to five-days the original thirty-day punishment imposed on the ground-handling company of Lion Air who gathered international press by incorrectly delivering a group of inbound passengers from Singapore to the domestic terminal at Jakarta’s Soekarno-Hatta Airport on Thursday, May 10, 2016.

The suspension converted into a probationary sentence was announced by The Transportation Ministry on Wednesday, May 25, 2016.

The lighter sentence was also shared with AirAsia who committed a similar error at Bali’s Ngurah Rai Airport on Monday, May 16, 2016.

Both Airlines now have 30-days to improve their ground handling capabilities and undertake rigorous training to ensure past mistakes are not repeated. The Ministry threatens that if improvements are not made in AirAsia and Lion Air’s ground handling, the ground-operating operations of both carriers will be revoked.

In an official statement from Lion Air, the Airline thanked the Ministry for its guidance and promised improvements would be introduced. Edward Sirait, President director of Lion Air, said “We are committed to improving the quality of services in order [to ensure that our customers] are comfortable and safe.”

Anything But Therapeutic
13-Year-Old Australian Boy Claims Sexual Molestation at Kuta, Bali Spa

A 47-year-old masseur is being held by police in Kuta under suspicion of sexual impropriety with a 13–year-old boy at the Damen Massage Parlor in Legian.

As reported by DenPost and The Jakarta Post, the masseur, identified as Abdurrahman, was given the task of massaging the teenage Australian boy who was visiting the spa with his grandmother on Tuesday, May 24, 2016.

Treating the boy in a room adjacent to a room in which his grandmother was undergoing a spa therapy, Abdurrahman persuaded the boy to remove his shorts to avoid contact with the massage oils. A short time later, the young boy discovered that the masseur was also naked and attempting to sodomize him. The Australian boy ran from the room and alerted his grandmother who immediately brought the matter to the attention of the Kuta police.

Police took Abdurrahman into custody who reportedly admitted to police to sexually molesting as many as 15 customers at spas in East Java and Ubud, several of whom were male customers.

Police are interviewing the masseur and have scheduled him for a psychological review. Police have confiscated the Australia boy’s shorts and the bed spread from the massage parlor for forensic examination.

If convicted under the child protection law, Abdurrahman could face 15 years in prison. Because the alleged crime took place one day before the President decreed stronger penalties for those involved in the sexual molestation of children that provides for chemical castration and electronic monitoring, it is unclear if he could face the additional penalties of chemical castration and electronic monitoring.


Bali Temples as Repositories of History
Expert Urges Care and Caution in the Care and Restoration of Bali’s Hindu Temples

Bali is often referred to as the “Island of a Thousand Temples.

Accordingly, cultural and historical activists in Bali are urging that all repair and renovation of religious temples in Bali be undertaken with the utmost care. They warn that repairs of Hindu temples undertaken without due regard for preserving history will destroy a valuable historical legacy.

As reported by Beritabali.com, this warning was delivered by the chairman of the Surya Majapahit Community, Iwan Pranajaya.

According to Iwan, renovations are being carried out at many temples in Bali that are replacing old temples with new, more majestic structures. While such upgrades are well intentioned, Iwan warns that renovations must be undertaken in consultation with experts who ensure that temples are restored to their original design, and not altered to some unrecognizable degree by modernists.

Iwan cited the case of a recent renovation of an old Temple (Pura) in the area of Biaung, East Denpasar. “Did those who renovated the temple understand the true meaning and purpose of a temple? If an old temple is torn down and renovated, religious, artistic and cultural characteristics can be lost. All we can do (when it’s over) is to regret that everything has (already) been changed,” said Iwan on May 26, 2016,

Thousands of Temple in Bali Represent a Historical Data Base

Iwan said that the renovation of temples in Bali cannot be undertaken carelessly because the these structures are not only places of worship for Hindu followers, but also a data base recording Bali’s ancient history. Each and every temple in Bali, in his view, is a special repository of historical knowledge worthy of preservation “Every Balinese Hindu who has been born or will be born in the future is connected somehow to a temple. All historical data resides there. Why don’t we uncover the historical data to be found at thousands of temples in Bali where no two temples are the same? Temples are the data banks of Bali history,” he said.

Iwan added that he was sad that many failed to see the historical value of Bali’s temple and said his organization represented a group of young people who are in love with Bali’s rich historical heritage.


He Thought he Could Fly
Rowdy Australian Man May Face 2 Year in Bali Prison for Behaving Badly on AirAsia Flight from Sydney

Plans by an Australian for a carefree holiday in Bali have been derailed by the man’s unruly behavior on his flight from Sydney to Denpasar that now has him reporting on a daily basis to the Bali police and facing the possibility of an extended prison term.

According to The Jakarta Globe, 25-year-old Dolden Aaron Gerrard insists he “was only joking” when he began screaming at fellow passengers and crew on his AirAsia flight on Thursday, May 26, 2016 that he was prepared to jump from the plane mid-flight.

Apparently the joke was lost on the crew and fellow passengers and Gerrard could now face 2 years in an Indonesian jail and a fine of $A50,000.

Gerrard was traveling with a group of 10 friends for a week-king holiday in Bali.

He reportedly refused to sit down and be quiet, despite orders to do so from crew and fellow passengers.

Airport and airline security officials apprehended Gerrard upon his arrival in Bali.

Gerrard now claims he was merely walking around the plane after using the toilet and making a poorly worded joke about skydiving. Cautioned to be quiet and told that security would be called in Bali, Gerrard reportedly told the crew “we are not afraid of security.”

Airline sources suggest that Gerrard may have been under the influence of alcohol at the time the incident unfolded. The man only brought two cans of beer onto the flight, but authorities suspect he may have begun drinking before he boarded the flight in Sydney.


Stop Human Trafficking
Group of Women from West Sumba with Fake IDs Netted by Bali Airport Security

Tens of young women from Eastern Indonesia have been detained at Bali’s Airport, identified by authorities as victims of human trafficking.

The women departed form Tambaloka, Airport in West Sumba, and flew on Garuda Indonesia Airlines to Bali.

Joseph Yulius Diaz (Yusdi), chairman of Flobamora Bali – an organization comprised of Diaspora members originally from Eastern Indonesia – said the 27 women were preparing to fly to Jakarta on Lion Air JT 037 when they were detected as possible human cargo.

The women were taken to the Airport police station for further questioning on Friday, May 27, 2016.

According to Yusdi and as reported by Beritadewata.com, it is widely suspected that the 27 women formed the object of a people smuggling operation, destined to be flown overseas from Jakarta. “We suspect they were holding falsified documents. We also strongly suspect that they were going to be used as illegal foreign workers. Falsified documents with incorrect identities is the way that the human traffic mafia works,” said Diaz.

He estimated age of the women in the group is 17-19 years.


The Cost of Quantity Before Quality
Bank Indonesia Report Says substantial Chinese Travel Market Brings Minimum Benefits to National Economy

A survey conducted by the Denpasar branch of Bank Indonesia (BI) shows that while the Ministry of Tourism is aggressively seeking mass tourism numbers from Mainland China, Chinese tourists are demonstrating very low levels of spending when holidaying in Bali.

As reported by Beritadewata.com Bank Indonesia’s chief in Bali, Dewi Setyowati, revealed the dismal spending levels of Chinese tourists.

Said Setyowati: “We routinely undertake surveys and it is indeed true, Chinese tourists spend little when visiting Bali. Moreover, you could make the comparison of 1:4. In other words, one European or Australian tourists to Bali spend the equivalent of 4 Chinese visitor.”

Bank Indonesia estimates that Chinese visitors spend a daily average of between 100 to 200 dollars and stay for only 4 to 6 days. Meanwhile, tourists coming from Europe, America or Australia can spend an average of 600 to 800 dollars and stay for between 10 to 14 days on the island.

Dewi said that while the results of the survey have been presented to the Indonesian Hotel and Restaurant Association (PHRI) and other stakeholders, there has been no apparent follow up to the data Bank Indonesia has revealed.

Bank Indonesia says the low spending levels of Chinese tourists is aggravated further by this market’s tendency to engage their own agents, bring their own guides and undertake other activities that diminish the multiplier effect of Chinese tourism on the Indonesian economy. BI contends that Chinese tourists typically purchase their travel from Chinese websites, on a person-to-person basis, or using private websites.

Dewi also claimed that Chinese tourists have little interest in the cultural tourism that is touted as the backbone of the Island’s tourism, with Mainland Chinese tourists showing little interest or respect for Balinese culture.

“They enter sacred areas wearing only tank tops. Because their guides are from China and unlicensed, many cases of selling and buying Chinese tourists take place. We have devised plans to capture illegal Chinese guides. These guides to not understand Bali and its unique culture,” complained Dewi.

Obviously displeased with the overall quality of Chinese visitors, the Bank Indonesia chief said that visitors from the Chinese mainland are noisy and bothersome when eating in restaurants and spend very little during their visit to Bali.

Adding: “They just fill up Bali. Many illegal guides. They don’t pay taxes and come in groups.”

Separately, the head of the Advisory and Economic Development Division at Bank Indonesia, Suarpika Bimantoro, confirmed that the level of expenditure by Chinese tourists is very low. “There is indeed a class of Chinese tourist of high quality, the jet set. They usually stay in starred hotels. These number only a few, with most Chinese tourists from the middle and lower classes, and although there are some quality (Chinese) tourists, the amount of money that touches the local economy is very small,” said Bimantoro.

“Like was said earlier, the comparison is 1:4. One European tourist is the equivalent (in value) of 4 Chinese tourists,” he said. He said Chinese seldom shop in small and medium-sized businesses, souvenir shops, handicrafts and gift shops. Adding: “If they stay in starred hotels, their money is for the rich. There is no money that trickles down to the lower classes. In fact, we desire a tourism industry enjoyed by all, not by only the rich and elite.”


Major Anti-Narcotics Arrest
Bali Authorities Arrest Two Chinese Suspected on Participating in the Smuggling of 70 kilograms of Methamphetamines via Jakarta

Two Chinese men are under arrest in Bali for their involvement in the smuggling of 70 kilograms of methamphetamines through recovered in a drug arrest in Jakarta.

Yu Tsai Chen (44) and Hsio Tzu Hung (40) were apprehended in Bali on Saturday, May 28, 2016 as the masterminds behind a failed attempt to import 70 kilograms of methamphetamines via Jakarta’s Soekarno-Hatta Airport on May 24, 2016.

As reported by NusaBali and Metrobali.com, information provided by the courier arrested in Jakarta led police and immigration authorities to the two Chinese men who were taken into custody as they prepared to board a flight in Bali bound for Thailand at 1:00 pm. The two showed a strong degree of compartmentalization, separating themselves from the narcotics brought in by a courier at a different gateway. The two men landed in Bali on May 23rd while their courier with 70 kilograms of drug entered via Jakarta a day later.

Both the Chinese men claim no knowledge or involvement the attempted smuggling of drugs via Jakarta’s airport.

Police plan to make the two men confront their accuser, the Courier caught red-handed with 70-kilograms of narcotic in Jakarta.

In the meantime, the two men are being housed in the Ngurah Rai Immigration Detention Center.

At a gala roof top book launch held at The 18th Rooftop Bar at The Trans Resort Bali attended by leading figures in the Island’s food and beverage industry, Smudge Publishing has released its first international culinary food guide, "Flavours of Bali."

The beautifully presented tabletop edition showcases the diverse dining scene in Bali, from fine dining at remarkable restaurants to sunset cocktails at beachside bars.

The latest publication in the award-winning "Flavours Of .  . ."  series, Flavours of Bali delves into Bali’s culinary scene, giving locals and visitors alike an in-depth insight into just what the collection of islands has to offer foodies.

Alex Jovanovic, general manager of The Tran Resort Bali said: “The entire culinary team at The Trans Resort is delighted that we have been featured in this gorgeous new book and that our 18th Rooftop Bar was selected as the location for the launch party for ‘Flavours of Bali. There is not doubt that this book will become essential reading for anyone wishing to understand the almost limitless choice of fine dining options on offer in Bali. At the same time, this book represents a valuable historical record of the current era in the fast-paced development of the Bali culinary experience.”

Smudge’s publisher, Jonette George says after covering most of Australia, Bali was a natural next step: “Bali’s thriving food scene has never been so exciting. Whether you’re after seafood in Seminyak or coffee in Canggu, Flavours of Bali has the ultimate guide on where to eat, drink and stay so that every day is a new culinary adventure.”

As one of the leading culinary destinations in the Asia Pacific region, the Indonesian island is home to a number of extraordinary chefs.

Renowned chef Will Meyrick’s venues are all featured in the book, including Sarong, Mama San, Hujan Locale and Tiger Palm. Each venue is beautifully represented, both visually and editorially, giving readers a fantastic idea of just what to expect. Best of all, the holiday continues at home, as you’ll be able to re-create a dish from your favorite venues with their signature recipes.

Flavours of Bali doesn’t just cover restaurants. With a feature on Sisterfields, considered by many as the best coffee in Bali, as well as a comprehensive selection of bars, including Potato Head Beach Club.

Readers will also get an understanding of beautiful hotels and resorts including the breathtaking Trans Resort Hotel and the W Resort and Spa, both in Seminyak, as well as the tranquil Viceroy Bali in Ubud.

“The vibrant colors and diverse landscapes of Bali makes this book our most eye-catching yet. It’s impossible not to be blown away by the bright hues of smoothie bowls, and the greenery of Ubud’s mountainous ranges,” said Jonette.

With stunning visuals, signature recipes and profiles of the island’s top chefs, Flavours of Bali offers a comprehensive guide to all the Bali dining scene has to offer.
