The Indonesian Rupiah has strengthened against the US Dollar. For the first time in 3 years, it is just under Rp. 9.000 to one US Dollar.
Indonesia has unveiled a new note and coin. The new Rp. 10,000 is blue, as compared to it's former red. Many tourist confused the Rp. 10,000 ($1.12) note with the Rp. 100,000 ($11.20), which is a similar red color.
New tax law in Bali to be implemented in hopes to cutdown on over congestion, traffic problems and pollution. The Balinese government wants residents to pay higher taxes if they have more than one vehicle registered under their name.
I, personally, think this is a great idea!! Bali and Indonesia both are overcrowded by bikes, cars, work trucks and buses.
