    Say Bali and most people think paradise

    Filed under: Asia Travel, Tourism, Indonesia Travel, Happening, Travel Guides — admin @ 2:18 pm

    Read the new New York Times piece on Bali: 36 Hours in Bali

    The writer’s story, writen almost hourly, on how she spent her time in Bali, one of the island in Indonesia and an internationally famous tourist destination.

    SAY Bali and most people think paradise. There are stunning sunsets, sculpted rice terraces and a temple on almost every corner. And for less-spiritual seekers, this steamy Indonesian island also has great surfing and a rollicking nightlife. Sure, it’s gotten pretty touristy, especially on the pub crawl along Kuta Beach, where beer-swilling Australians rule. And while recent terrorist bombings have rattled Bali’s blissful pace (it is a Hindu-majority island in a Muslim-majority nation), they have done little to temper its popularity or discourage super-chic resorts from being built. Paradise, after all, is as close as the nearest temple, finding yourself on your knees with a blue flower pressed between your fingertips, asking for blessings from Brahma or one of the other gods.

    Uncovered: Tokyo, Japan

    Filed under: Asia Travel, Travel News, Japan Travel, Travel Info — admin @ 5:02 pm

    New York Times has a new piece on nightlife in Tokyo, titled: Hidden Tokyo

    Tokyo, especially after dark, is notoriously hard to penetrate. With its winding mazelike streets, the city is a challenge for even seasoned taxi drivers. (Many bicyclists have GPS devices on their handlebars.) So imagine hunting down the restaurants, bars and clubs that are stashed away in patchwork alleys, nondescript apartment buildings, faceless office towers and basement stairwells illuminated by red bulbs.

    Discreet, out-of-the-way bars have been a staple of Japanese culture for decades. Before World War II, Tokyo was filled with these pocket-sized dives — called nomiya (counter bars) — with space for just six or seven stools. Behind the counter was a proprietor, whose role was both confidant and caregiver to the regulars. When the city was rebuilt, however, most were bulldozed in favor of larger, glossier, more Westernized offerings.

    Now a younger, postwar creative class is reviving nomiya culture — with a decidedly modern spin.

    Tourists Coming Back to Bali, Indonesia

    Filed under: Asia Travel, Tourism, Travel News, Indonesia Travel — admin @ 6:40 pm

    Inbound tourism to Bali is rebounding strongly, with a record-high 472,000 foreign visitors for the first four months of 2007.

    Due to several bombings (the last on Sept 2005) in Bali, the Bali’s tourism situation have taken a roller-coaster ride in the past years.

    But looking at the current number the it seems that recovery is well underway, with international arrivals for the 12 months to April 2007 growing to 1.39 million, only 10% behind the September 2005 peak.

    Annual Bali Tourists Arrival

    President of Bali Discovery Tours Mr Jack Daniels:

    Bali is benefiting from strong growth from India and Russia due to improved air access and visas on arrival. But, Australia, one of Bali’s biggest source markets, was still down on 2005 levels but recovering slowly.
