Apapun itu alasannya, memang sudah saatnya Bali berbenah.
Turis masih suka Bali karena selain alam yg masih lumayan asli juga budayanya. Tapi kalau pembangunan terus-terusan tanpa peduli alam sekitar dan budaya, tidak mustahil dalam waktu dekat Bali akan ditinggalakan oleh wisatawan. Terlepas ada atau tidaknya black campaign dari negara lain.
Singapore punya apa sih ? Tapi kenapa banyak wisatawan berkunjung kesana ?

Bukan hanya itu kayaknya ....
Sebagian bule2 senang ke bali karena juga bisa menikmati kebebasan dari peraturan2 yg mengikat mereka di negaranya ..... Contoh kecil saja urusan lalu lintas .... :))
Kampanye negatif yang ditebarkan untuk kepentingan pariwisata mereka.Orang berkunjung ke Bali bukan cuma mau mandi matahari di pantai, tapi juga untuk lebih mengenal seni budayanya.Facebook: Radityo Djadjoeri

South-Western Australia is better value than Bali, claims tourism chief

- January 23, 2011 12:00AMMARGARET River tourism authorities have labelled the region's main holiday rival Bali as dirty, overpriced and a terrorist threat.Augusta-Margaret River Tourism Bureau chief executive Simon Ambrose said cheap airfares and fierce competition among carriers had made Bali a top getaway for West Australians.
But he said a trip to Margaret River was better value, less hassle and much safer.
His comments came after the Health Department announced that a fourth West Australian had contracted legionnaire's disease while holidaying in Bali since last month.
"You're not going to get legionnaire's disease, dengue fever or have any of those issues if you come to the South-West," Mr Ambrose said.
"I don't want to be alarmist but, for me, I'd prefer to have a safe, secure holiday rather than one with risks."
While accommodation could be more expensive, Mr Ambrose said the cost was "offset by the lack of airfares and passports required to get down south".
And he said visitors to Margaret River could find comfort in knowing their carbon footprint was lower than flying to Bali.
A press release issued by the tourism bureau went on to state: "Another major difference in the two destinations is cleanliness."
And it pointed to the threat of terrorism, saying: "Major issues such as terrorism and health are not as relevant, if at all, when holidaying at home."
But a spokesman at WA's Indonesian Consulate, Syahri Sakidin, said the claims were wrong and it was unfair to compare the two destinations.
"To say Bali is dirty, I don't think so," he said.
"Terrorism is a big issue that is a concern for everyone in the world. Everywhere we go we have to think about that, not just Bali,"
