Power failures causes chaos in Jakarta EINDHOVEN - The big power failure that is currently hitting big parts of Jawa and Bali including the capital Jakarta is causing a chaos in that city. Thousands of cars are stuck in extremely heavy traffic, where normally complete traffic jams are quite normal. In big parts of the city there is no power, which causes airconditioners not to work, but most offices are open for business as usual.

The power failures also caused trains to be stalled on the tracks around Jawa. They can't be moved because the signals are out, most trains however are using diesel fuel. In several hospitals around the capital, operations have been cancelled because of the outage.

Hai Mawar,
we have some friends in South-Bali, and they tell us they have a hard time in earning money. They work at the beaches above the Kuta and Legian area.
As we understand bussiness in Kuta and Legian is getting better so there should be enough tourist there.
We were in Legian in 2004 and haven't seen a ghost area, but a less crowded area.
Let's say, we still had to wait for 30 minutes for a table to have diner at Made's Warung.
So if you want to do something good, just go to Bali in November as you planned. The people need you ..... Emoticon: Yes! Emoticon: Yes!
We go again in september and looking forward to it, it still is a beautifull place to be !!!
Greetings Anita

hI Mawar,
last year we've been in Kuta/Legian in November and this year we'll go again in November, since we liked it so much in that time. Emoticon: Smile

In this month there are less tourists than in the high season, but it is not like a ghost. Last year, every now and then, we had to wait in the restaurants to get served. In my experience Kuta/Legian is also in these months not empty.

If you are a real "party animal" that likes to walk over the heads of people then November might be to quiet, but for the rest of us there's more than enough to do there. Emoticon: Shiny

I was in Bali this spring , it was rather quiet, but tourism is on the rise they say. Only the current bombing might have some influence again unfortunately. But don't let it stop you going, Bali is still very safe place if you compare it to cities like Amsterdam.

Why not go to Benidorm, Torremolinos or Ibiza if you want to go to Kuta, Legian or Seminyak? Much more save. Probably missing the (fake) smile?
If you come for Indonesia - then go to other islands rather then South-Bali.

about the tourists in Bali........
well 1. they always only talk in publising the rates off arrivals about Japanese,Ausies,Germans,Taiwanese ect...but never about Dutch people...last months 1000thds off Dutch people came to Bali....also many French......and another ''group'' they also forget are the local tourists,...since 2 month 100.000thds off local people take holiday in Bali ....they also spend money...perhaps more than the Koreans.....also .....great ,great amount off Russians,they come already more than 6 month in bigg groups....these Russians are the best for Balinese trade and buisness because they pay whats been ask ...they do not haggle....if the prize say 500.000,- rp. they pay cash without problems....
Ofcourse its more quite than normale ....but people pls. do not think its a deserted Island........its still the most perfect place for holiday and to live(I know because I live here).
I would tell to all the ''doubters'' please come and have fun,relax and have the most perfect time u can gett .No other Island can offer u more than BALI.......
Selamat Datang...........Putu-Lou/Balibagus. Emoticon: Yes!

Just returned from a quick business trip from Bali.
Australian arrivals down by almost 60%

Kuta Legian and Seminyak are very quiet. Some hotels seem to do a good job, but my overall impression is not positive.

In Lovina were this weekend 6 tourists only! I also think that Japanese are down by 28% but I am not sure.

Europeans seem to catch up, an increasing lenght of stay was confirmed by several GM's in Nusa Dua, Jimbaran and Sanur.

So basically, do not believe the positive stories, Bali is not doing well! I hope they catch up before the peak season.

Comparing Bali with Phuket, Phuket seems to do alright, but in terms of yield also Phuket is not back.

Greetings from Phuket

Maurits

Mister Balibagus looks like the former Minister of Information from Iraq:

"Bali is doing well, all hotels are full and people spend a lot of money"

I would like to know if mr/mrs BaiBagus still has the same opinion about Bai and the numbers of visitors.
My estimation is that the numbers of visitors are tumbeling down rappidly.

That was posted 5 years ago !

Your estimation is that the number of visitors are tumbeling down rapidly okay!!

May I ask you where are less visitors....Candidasa have much more visitors this year, as the last 8 years after the first bomblash in Kuta. Emoticon: Yes!

I knew that was posted 5 years ago but it was high on the active topics list ?

I do not say that there are less arrivals on the airport but I have a feeling that many of them travel trough to other palces.
Many restaurants in legian only have one turnover a night and are mostley empty at 10.00 pm.
They are struggeling with the lunch to get customers and.
owners of those restaurants claim that there is a lack of europian tourist and asian tourist are not the tourist you are looking for as a restaurant keeper.

The traffic is still a struggle but its a lokal one and mostly only during rush hours.
(mabey a reason for some to go to Candidassa)

Last night I visit Kuta and not only I saw that most of the places are empty even there is a lot of noise. (maby because of that :-/ )

A friend of mine in the north who has a restaurant has less visitors then theyear before and two of my staff members who also come from Singaradja claim that there is less work for family members because there are not many tourists.

According to some relatives who have travelagencies are there alternatives for Bali that are cheaper and easier to reach in and out Indonesia.

Whatever the tourist departement will say, It needs a lot of salt with it.

Hi accid,

Not sure what you motivation/agenda is making such a strange comment.

Here is the news about visitors to Bali from February 2011 you might like to read www.watoday.com.au/travel/trav(...)-20110210-1aocc.html

There is no motivation or (hidden) agenda.

I just refer to my feeling.

I also follow the news and the one you are referring to is from february wright?

I pick up family from the airport ones and a while and arrive myself several times on the Bali domestic and international and the international is not so buisy as you should espect if you read the news.

Its stil buisy on Bali but I think its a differant type of toerist , the one who wants to enjoy culture and nature are on other islands i think.

Yogya-Bali is completely wright wit his comment and it is good news for other Islands because the more adventures type will go now to the Nusa Tenggara region. Flores for example has growing amounts of tourists (31%) and they deserve it.
The Island has a much more preserved flora and fauna and the marine life is outstanding.
The accomodation is various in quality (mostly medium) and price and there are all kinds of local and western food available.
Its an Island that gives the tourist an adventures feeling.

What I see now with the tourisem in Bali is different then at the moment that I was wrighting my first comment. Toerisme is growing but most of the tourists are comming from Australia and Jakarta now comparing with before. Tourists from Europe are declining and also asian toursits are chossing other destinations. Most of the europian tourists are the one who transit from Bali now and stay now in Bali like about 10 years ago just for a few days. The rest of there holiday they stay more and more in easthern Indonesia like : Sulawesi - moluku - and Nusa Tengara.

I wish they are not making the same mistakes like the Balinese are making.
