Bikini will soon be banned in this popular tourist destination
Bali may ban bikinis as part of a stern new regulation to combat Western tourists’ offensive behavior around the holy sites on the Indonesian islands.
Bali is cracking down on disrespectful behavior and proposes to ban wearing bikinis around its holy sites.
This popular resort has enough Western tourists to pretend to photograph and climb the Holy Land.
As more and more tourists come to the island, locals believe that the quality of tourists has declined.
The authorities are considering new restrictions on access to certain sacred areas.
According to the Deputy Governor of Bali, Tjokorda Oka Artha Sukawati (known as Cok Ace), this may mean that tourists must accompany them to visit Hindu temples.
He told the Australian news network news.com.au: “The quality of tourists is now different from before. This is because we are too open to tourists, so we have come too much.” Last year, Bali welcomed about 5 million visitors.
There are various tourists who disrespect the religious heritage of Bali.
Recently, a photo of a Danish tourist virus appeared on the sacred Temple of Linggih Padmasana in the Puhur Luhur Batukaru Temple.
The throne should be left to the most important god of Hinduism in Bali, which is called the supreme god.
Sitting on top is very offensive and considered to be awkward – there are strict laws in Bali.
The police are investigating the matter and trying to find a Danish tourist.
Also this year, a Spanish blogger uploaded a video of himself climbing the temple – for which he was forced to apologize.
In December 2017, tourists were criticized for the photos posted in front of the volcano Agung volcano.
In 2016, a woman took a picture in a yoga pose and wore a bikini, causing anger in front of a temple.
“This is an attempt by the government to maintain Pura [the temple],” Cok Ace said at a regional council meeting this week to discuss difficult proposals.
