In 2018, the number of international tourists visiting Bali was lower than the target, due to natural disasters at the end of 2017 and followed by the "zero dollar tour", which greatly decreased the number of visitors from China and which was still felt in 2019. Furthermore, the increase in the price of domestic plane tickets was also a factor.
Recently, the government has prioritised the development of 10 new tourist destinations, and these indirectly compete with Bali. Thus, Bali should explore new attractions and be creative so that people will be curious and come. Meanwhile, the plastic waste problem in the island should be another consideration especially for the local government. The use of plastic products should be stopped, or plastic rubbish should be recycled.
