5 Facts Tourist Forgot about Bali since the Mount Agung Volcano EruptionBlog , News and Events
It’s huge, it’s intimidating, and it’s here. The Bali’s Mt. Agung decided to flex some muscle and got people to shake their legs. But, is this something to be concerned about? Or can we enjoy our glass of margarita underneath the Kuta Sunset?
Bali is a massive island. It would take you 3 hours to drive from Denpasar to Mount Agung. In addition, Bali is the 14th biggest island in Indonesia, and literary 8 times bigger than the country Singapore. There’s a significant chance that tourist and other expats won’t be residing in the impact area. Mt Agung itself is located in the northern part of the island, on the Rendang District. With only 30,000 people lived there, it can be considered as one of the most isolated locations on Bali.
Indonesia Volcanic Nation’s Scheme.
It’s not pretty yet it’s the truth. Indonesian is the most volcanic active country in the world. Volcano eruption and minor earthquake can be experienced weekly around Indonesia. However, this result in Indonesian government strategic plan and detailed observation on every volcano around the country. This plan is called operation MRDID012; with detailed plan from early evacuation, to intense realtime watch on the volcano, our government had a very secure information about every site in the country.
The number is in, and there are no life casualties resulted from the eruption. The fast response of the local government to manage the situation and the remoteness of Mt Agung properties has produced an effective way to promote safe situation for the local who lives in the area, and everyone in Bali. Minor destruction from the earthquake had happened, but it not a thing to worry about as the attraction is far away from this mountain.
President’s Official Statement
Our very own President Joko Widodo had spoken, and he guarantees a full safety and even encourage tourist to travel to Bali as a celebration of new year. The president itself has traveled to the island earlier last month and had enjoyed the Kuta beach as his releasing spot. Nonetheless, Bali attraction remains its beauty while Mt. Agung recovering from the minor eruption happened last year.
Ashy Air Flight
Air flight by itself is not always pleasurable. Cramp legs, humming ear, bad food, you name it. Then we came with the biggest fear of the Agung’s volcanic eruption, how it’s going to interfere with your flight schedule and safety. At this point, all of the volcanic dust that was erupted in September is already settle down and hence giving a safe environment for everyone to fly in and out from the island. Safety itself is not something we need to concern since the international airport system has taking into count every parameter of a flight, making modern air travel is one of the safest ways to get around.
Thus, what if I’m trapped in future eruption scenario? Well, under the international law of air flight regulation, you will get a refund or will be accommodated until it is safe for you to travel to your destination. This is, of course, varying on different cooperation, but in general, the airport will compensate your loss on time.
In general, Bali has experienced a lot of impact on its island and shock the nation. Yet it remains one of the most beautiful destinations in Asia and one of the most tourist-friendly places on Indonesia. As it offers great beaches, food, and culture, Bali is surely not a place you want to miss this summer.
