Tourists flock to Bali during Christmas despite recent volcanic eruptions

Published on : Wednesday, December 27, 2017

baliDespite Mount Agung’s continuous eruptions, both domestic and international tourists have flocked to some destinations on the resort island of Bali on Christmas day.




Mount Agung erupted again on the last Sunday, spewing about 2.5 kilometers high ash. However, the government has declared assurance that there is no fear and that the resort is safe for the tourists.  Although the video of Bali’s eruption has gone viral on social media, it could not deter the tourists from visiting this place to enjoy the holidays.




Mount Agung is located considerably far from most of the tourists’ attractions. For instance, it is about 75km away from the resort hub of Kuta. Assurance from the government has also added to the tourism quotient. It has said that if Ngurah Rai Airport suddenly closes, the people will be looked after.




The National Disaster Mitigation Agency (BNPB) spokesman Sutopo Purwo Nugroho said on Sunday that until now 71, 045 local residents had moved to 239 displaced person points prepared by the government throughout the island. He also stated that Bali “is still safe” for tourists.
