Bali is not a place to visit as a tourist

Being part of a country where death penalties are used should send a message to every tourist that this place is best to be left alone. Combine it with the fact that death penalties can be issued for other than murder is yet another signal. Combine it with the fact that even the legal process have flaws it should send a message not even to consider it for any travel purpose at all.

It is not that the so-called Bali 9 group faces executions. It is the arrest and imprisonment of two Australian women which prove that this Island is simply too dangerous for any person to visit. Schapelle Corby was arrested for smuggling drugs into Indonesia. No smuggler in the world would take drugs from where they are expensive to a place where they are cheap. The entire concept for drugs trafficking is based on profit. Her arrest and the Courts decision to destroy the evidence long before the legal process including appeals was over speak of a cover up.

Then taken into consideration that the arrest and deportation of the Australian top-model Michelle Leslie included extortion and possible political connections combined with the fact that she was forced to change faith in order to reduce the risk of sexual molestation or rape skips Bali as a tourist target entirely.

A message has been sent by the authorities in Bali: “We don’t want tourists here”

Please listen to their message so you don’t become their next victim.

  1. There are a lot of serious 'incidents' involving tourists that happen on that island that should freighten anyone. Xenophobia is widespread, primarily because of envy. Stay away.
