Preserving the Image of Bali

Nyoman Astama. Preserving the Image of BaliPreserving the image of Bali is not enough by just keeping the culture and economy, but it should also keep the environmental aspect. Realized or not, the environment is also one of the supporters of tourism. “If the environment is sustainable and clean, the image of Bali will be well known in the world,” said Nyoman Astama, General Manager of Bali Niksoma Boutique Resort. According to him, so far the environmental issues such as waste had not been resolved maximally. Sewers and rivers in Kuta began to be stuffed with garbage, especially domestic waste.

The existence of such plastic waste would certainly affect the absorbability of water which could lead to water crisis. “If it is neglected, will the image of Bali remain wonderful?” asked Astama doubling as Public Relations of the Kuta Executive Club.

In addition, traffic congestion could also tarnish the image of Bali as a world leading tourist destination. Volume of the vehicle had exploded, while some cafés and minimarket did not have a private parking space. Such condition surely caused travelers to park at roadside. “It is aggravated by long duration of traffic light resulting in long lines,” he said.

Astama hoped the image of Bali should not only be built with the popularity of Bali known as a unique and cultured island, but also as a convenient, quality and secure island. “It is comfortable in terms of the environment, safe in terms of traffic and qualified in terms of accommodation. If these components can be balanced, then the existence of Bali Island will be harmonious,” he concluded. (BTN/ocha)
