In the wake of the Oct. 12, 02 Bali bombing, the people of Bali are facing another daunting challenge: continuing their living while tourism, the very lifeblood of the island, has dropped massively. Hundreds of thousands of jobs are at stake, feeding about 3 million people in the island.
We are calling for Backpackers around the world to help revive tourism to Bali!
To help do this, we have created a portal for Backpackers to visit Bali: http://www.budgetbali.com. Please kindly visit the site.
Lots of information about culture and cultural events, nature and sports, etc. You can book online over 100 bed-and-breakfasts at heavily discounted prices. Long stays deals, homestays and rental homes are coming soon. We will also be putting in a forum and continue to improve the site.
Inputs and suggestions are most welcome, as well as other resources that would be useful and links exchanges with other backpacking resources on the net.
And we have created online forum for backpackers to discuss all about backpaking, especially in Bali - Indonesia
Backpackers Forum --- a place for the free exchange of ideas about backpacking in and to Bali and other destinations in Indonesia. Here you can share your backpacking related experiences, tips for backpackers, assistance and information for prospective backpackers, and to promote backpacking/travel as a precious and beneficial human endeavour. But please bear in mind that this is not a space for advertising nor it is a scene for non-backpacking related postings. Please also read our Policy and FAQ.
