Foreign tourist arrival down 10 pct in 2005 JAKARTA - The number of foreign tourists visiting Indonesia in 2005 decreased to 4.07 million people, or 10. 28 percent lower than in 2004, Statistic Bureau announced here Wednesday. The bureau chief Choirul Maksum told a press conference that the number of foreign tourists coming to the Indonesis's beautiful resort of Bali island in December last year rose to 81,000 people, or 19.81 percent lower than in the previous month.

Indonesian Minister of Culture and Turism Jero Wacik told Xinhua earlier that that the decline of foreing tourist arrival last year is significantly caused by the Bali bombing in October last year that killed 20 people including three suicide bombers. In addition to the impact of tsunami that was felt at the beginning of last year, bird flu outbreak had insignificantly contributed to the decline, he said. "People still worried to travel," he added.

Indonesia targeted between five to six million foreign tourist arrivals in 2005 and 5.5 to 6 million this year, according to Wacik.

What can we expect with:
1- bombs
Regarding the bombs they've actually done quite a good job to catch the responsible people to improve safety in the future.
2- bad visa policy
They destroy the country for a fist full of visa dollars.
3- no (good) promotion
Maybe they should have a look at how Malaysia is promoting there, much less interesting, country successfully.
4-building mosques with many loudspeakers in Bali to scare away the tourists.
They just don't want to understand this is very "bad for business". The mosques are no problem, but the loudspeakers are, especially since these remind tourists of Muslim extremism.

4-building mosques with many loudspeakers in Bali to scare away the tourists.
You can give me some details (facts) from places in Bali where tourist has problems with mosques.

3- no (good) promotion, not flexibel, to long time hanging on the succes formule from long time ago, not listening to the tourist.

5- In Europe is in this moment a Economic crisis, for the people in Bali not possible, everone in de Western World has a big house with a car, the most of them a swimmingpool, the every day money we take from a tree in the garden.

6- Cheat the Asian tourist especially from Japan is not enough, many people makes jokes about them, the Japanees are not crazy, at home they wil make a good promotion for Bali and they wil not come again.

7. Bali tolerate to much from the tourist, some of them walking half naked in the streets or driving a motorbike. Tolerate is OK but not everything.In the homecountry the tourist has also accept some rules, why not in Bali?

8. Specially Thailand brings special offers, much cheaper as Bali, but they not forget there own culture.

I wil hope with you that this crisis with tourism not takes to long time and I hope also the Balinees people use the time to learn listening what the tourist really likes and please change the word BOSS to MISTER.

tourists and people who have problems with loudspeakers of mosques ...should rather not visit the island..because frankly speaking ,,,

respect people who respect others religion ....so tourists who love walking nude, drunk and dont respect mosques should rather not visit Indonesia...i think..........

Indonesia is a beautiful country so better to avoid more unwashable stains by outside people................

Actually there is no one on this forum having problems with the loudspeakers, it is the handling of the volume button (to the farest right) and the voices ruined by DJARUM76 coming from those speakers which forms the problem. Like a disaster just has happened or it might be that many Indonesians are stonedeaf Emoticon: Worship

The handling of the volume button and bass button is not only at the mosques, the Indonesian people makes also with party's the music much to loud, sometimes beautiful music but distort and not for listening long time.
It's a part of the culture.
