Memang susah-susah gampang menemukan teman yang sama-sama hobi keluyuran dan mudah untuk diajak jalan kemana-mana, alias gampangan diajak jalan jalan. Hahaha. Yah untungnya saya punya lah, meskipun cuma satu yang setia menemani. Bisa diajak kemana-mana saat otak mulai penat. Teman semacam ini patut dijaga dan dilestarikan! Siapa? Emyl lah.. siapa lagi yang paling intens muncul di blog ini kalo engga dia. XD

Beauty, Diversity, Memory and All Nice Things About Bali

“Bali for tourism? NO! Tourism for Bali? YES!”

Well, this is a motto from HPI, an organization which protects tourism in Bali. It is nice and well said, isn’t it? I got it when I was visiting their office almost a month ago. This motto is short but it clearly states about how tourism industries in Bali develop which protects Bali quite well. In this motto, they want people in Bali to work together to develop tourism in Bali without disregarding its culture. They keep on dancing traditional dances such as Kecak dance, keep on wearing traditional clothes in many occasions, keep on designing their home according to the custom rule, and etc. These side of them are very unique. They have their own identity which is different from the other tribes. But Bali is not only about the culture. The beauty of nature occurs in Bali. Starting from the beaches, waterfalls, mountains, hills, lakes, rivers, sea etc., we can find all of them in Bali. Huge trees and vast paddies field are the most common view in Bali, especially when we are in Tabanan region. No wonder if you look at the google map using satelite option, you will see Bali mostly in green color.

Because of the richness of its culture and its nature, people has realized that Bali has a good prospect. It can attract many tourists to come which is good for their economic matters. Then they have started to learn how to manage business and tourism professionally and how to produce and how to market local products. Most of Balinese make a living from tourism.

Mau dianter kemana Vi? 

Kita berdua nggak ada ide pas mas Mirsa nanyain kemana kita mau melancong di hari kedua kita di Bali. Kalau dari dulu wisata Bali yang saya sukai selalu pantai selatan Bali. Kalo enggak Uluwatu ya Bluepoint. Tapi berhubung kemaren sudah main-main ke daerah sana dan ternyata Bluepoint nggak seperti yang saya kira, saya nggak punya pikiran kemana enaknya hari itu.

Terserah wes mas, yang penting bagus.” Saya sih pasrah aja mau diajak kemana, yang penting di Bali. Toh kan mas-mas ini yang lebih lama di Bali, lebih tahu seluk beluk Bali lebih baik dari kita. Mungkin ada destinasi tersembunyi yang masih belum dikenal banyak orang.
