Bro Bali on Chinese Tourists

Mangku Artika, 67, additional charge at Puseh Batuan Temple, Sukawati Sub-district, Gianyar. In addition to being the leader of the Balinese Hindu ceremony or the speaker, Artika now monitors the tourists in the temple of his village.

Likewise on Sunday, November 18th. Dressed in kamen white (sarong), clothing, udeng (headband), Artika holds a short-frequency radio as a communication tool. The cell phone tucked in the pocket of his shirt.

This afternoon, Artika went around the temple.

It sometimes hosts guests in different languages: English, Spanish and Chinese. However, he sometimes hunted Chinese tourists in their language.

"Compared to visitors from other countries, Chinese tourists are the first, the most curved," said Artika in a mixture of Indonesian and Balinese. In other words, most Chinese tourists can not be informed.

Soon, the former primary school teacher told a pair of Chinese tourists. Artika told them to get off the ground, one of the rooms forbidden by tourists. The two tourists left, mingling with hundreds of other tourists.

"It's an example, it was said that you could not go up, they keep going up, so I have to go around and see them," Artika continued.

The Puseh Batuan Temple, about 20 km from Denpasar, is one of the tourist attractions that become a tourist destination for Bali. For about 20 years, the temple that was built in 1022 according to the inhabitants of the city was not only a place of worship for Hindu people in the village, but was cluttered with sightseeing.

Around 2,000 tourists visit the city in one day. In the last three years, the most unruly Chinese tourists have visited Pura Desa Batuan more than 70%.

Package for cheap tourism problems in China

Many Chinese tourists in the Desa Batuan Temple reflect the current tourist conditions of Bali. In September of this year, the Bamboo Curtain State sent nearly 1.1 million tourists out of a total of 4.6 million tourists on the island. With a total of 23.4%, Chinese tourists moved to Australia (19%), which contributed the most to Indonesian tourism.

However, behind this ever-increasing number, Chinese tourists are starting to pose many problems, such as the buying and selling of heads, prices are too low or on sale, until the rise of illegal guides.

The purchase and sale of head refers to the practice of giving travel agents' commissions to souvenir shop owners in Bali, depending on the number of tourists they bring to the store.

"The more tourists come into the shops, the more travel agents get subsidies, and you can also get more commissions," said Benny Fonda, tour guide for Chinese tourists in Bali.

The problem is that the souvenir shops in Bali are only monopolized by some shops.

According to Bali Tourism Board President Ida Bagus Agung Partha Adnyana, four large groups of Chinese investors and investors from Jakarta are playing in this gift shop. They are the ones who control China's tourist souvenir market. [In this news, on November 10, four main stores received letters of reprimand from the local government to close down their businesses: Lisa Game Stone and Maharaja Latex Bali (both located at Jl By-Pass Ngurah Rai), PT Citra Interbuana Multi Rasa (Jl Sunset Road) and PT Mutiara Venus Bali (ITDC, Nusa Dua). ]

This practice of monopolizing the souvenir market for Chinese tourists is a new problem of tourism in Bali. It is normal for travel agencies to put pressure on gift shops. At that time, the souvenir shops will send out product dealers (SPG) to entice the travel agents and bring them to their stores.

In return, the gift shop will provide a commission of 2.5 to 3% of each guest who arrives.
