Starting July 1st, the cost of electricity increased throughout Indonesia, as well as Bali.

Bali meets to discuss regulations for preserving historical buildings. Sadly, only 30 regencies in Indonesia, out of 478, have shown an interest.

Bali made the list of BEST ISLAND'S to visit by Islands Magazine.
Bali, as well as Indonesia, has also made other lists recently, such as Best Scenic Resort, 2nd place (Bali); Best Island Villas, 3rd place (Bali); Best Island Spas, 4th place (Bali) and Best Island Reef, 4th place (Wakatobi). Read the full story HERE.

Bali's Governor is pushing to outlaw plastic bags at Bali's supermarkets. Anyone who has been to Bali can tell you they fall in love with Bali's beauty and then they realize there's also a lot of litter here. Everywhere in Bali gives plastic bags for everything! Even if you put your plastic in the trash for pickup, Bali's countless dogs and cats roaming the streets tear the trash up and plastic is, again, scattered all over the place.
This outlaw on plastic, to me, would be a big step in the right direction for Bali's preservation and tourism. Read the fill story HERE.
