Indonesia’s National Disaster Mitigation Agency (BNPB) is drawing up plans to improve disaster resilience and preparedness in tourist destinations across the country. Bali is said to be a priority location in the program, as officials hope to later emulate the province’s efforts in other regions.

These days, one might say there’s a growing appetite to get away from all the hubbub of Bali’s tourism hot spots. When it gets a little much in, say, Seminyak or Canggu, the relative peace and quiet over at Sanur sure sounds like a lovely alternative.

Local residents in Jembrana regency’s Pengambengan village went out to the streets to protest against plans to build a medical waste facility in the area yesterday, as they fear it may negatively impact the local community and their livelihoods.

A post initially shared on Facebook from a foreign woman who appears to be living in Bali has gone viral recently, as she boasted having her foster dog kill a cat, angering many Indonesians across various social media platforms.

A villa in Seminyak is taking the spotlight and making headlines in Bali this afternoon after allegations surfaced that it exclusively catered to the gay community. Authorities on the island have since expressed their disapproval based on their belief that homosexuality is against cultural norms in Bali.

The Denpasar District Court yesterday sentenced three Bulgarian nationals to seven months in prison each for attempting an ATM skimming scheme in Bali. 

“Thereby sentencing defendants Boycho Angelov Karadzhov, Filipina Aleksndrov Lyamov and Stoyan Vladimorov Stoyanow to seven months in prison and a fine of IDR5 million (US$361),” presiding judge I Made Pasek said at the hearing, as quoted by state news agency Antara.
