The national airline Garuda Indonesia officially serves the first regular international flight to Bali with the Narita-Denpasar route in 2022. This flight is in line with the return of international flights through I Gusti Ngurah Rai International Airport, Bali.

The inaugural flight of the Narita-Denpasar route is served with the A330-300 fleet. Garuda also transported 30 tons of cargo from Japan, consisting of spare parts for construction, automotive, and electronic goods.

President Director of Garuda Indonesia, Irfan Setiaputra, said that the operation of this flight was in line with the inauguration of the Denpasar-Narita special cargo flight route via Manado which began operating on Wednesday, February 2, 2022.

This is aligned with the government's policy regarding the opening of Bali's international entrances starting on February 4, 2022.

The inauguration of the Narita-Denpasar flight route is the result of cooperation between Garuda Indonesia and the Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy, which also has full support from the Bali Provincial Government and the Indonesian Embassy in Japan.

President Director of Garuda Indonesia, Irfan Setiaputra said that the reopening of the Narita-Denpasar flight service was a form of Garuda Indonesia's commitment as a national flag carrier in supporting government programs. In particular, it is related to efforts to accelerate national economic recovery which is optimized through the provision of safe flight service accessibility.

Irfan said the Narita-Denpasar international flight was a separate momentum for the acceleration and synergy of all aviation stakeholders in supporting the revival of the national economic sector. Especially Bali, which is one of the integrated economic zones in Indonesia.

"This flight service is part of our efforts to maximize the market potential of Narita, Japan on an ongoing basis, both through cargo transportation market share which is focused on the transportation of Bali's leading export commodities through special routes for Denpasar-Manado-Narita cargo flights, as well as inbound passenger transportation to Indonesia via Denpasar-Narita flight route", he said in a written statement, Thursday, February 3

Magical Melukat: Purifying Our Mind, Body & Soul

Melukat is just one of Bali’s magical rituals which involves using water as a ritual cleanser. The aim is to cleanse both body and mind, to refresh the spirit and dissolve away any negative influences. It is also believed to cure non medical diseases and sickness of the spirit and whether it does or not, a session bathing in holy waters will certainly make you feel good.Many of these places exist in Bali, with the best known and most visited ones are hidden around the Tirtha Empul area. Yet, Tirtha Sudamala Temple remains surprisingly unvisited, and delightfully pristine. Descending the steep road and carved granite steps, you get the feeling that you are discovering something really special. Something unknown.Early morning is the best time to visit, while the air is cool and fresh. Sometimes Bali’s youngest Perdanda – ( high Priestess) is in attendance, although the day we went, she was busy elsewhere. She is said to arrive around 8am and will stay for some time to give blessings to her devoted followers.In technical terms, Melukat derives from the old Javanese word “lukat” which means to “cleanse” or “purify” while the Indonesian meaning is “to let go” or release something within us. Self purification is sought by many Hindus and in India, the devoted throng to the banks of the holy Ganges River with a similar purpose. It is a ritual that can be performed many times, in fact the more, the merrier as it can only lead to good things.After the ritual bathing is done, it is a steep walk up the hill, but the Balinese, being service oriented, have motorbikes awaiting the lazy. What a great invention! So a quick and painless ride back to the top of the hill brings us to several warungs serving a host of local delights. Coffee, a cold coke, a ketupat concoction with vegetables and steamed rice, and several other culinary treats are there to be enjoyed. You can just choose what you will. A few local people sell fruit from their own gardens as well as sweet potatoes and if you are lucky, the especially delicious Bangle avocados, the best on the island. It is all a really wonderful way to start the day, or the week, or even the rest of your life!   Source :

Implementation of Visa on Arrival, Nearly 15,000 Foreign Tourists Visit Bali

JAKARTA - The application of visa on arrival (VoA) which has been going on since early March 2022 has succeeded in bringing nearly 15,000 foreign tourists to the island of Bali. Deputy for Strategic Policy at the Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy (Kemenparekraf) Nia Niscaya said this was an effect of making it easier for foreign tourists to come using VoA. "From the beginning, there were almost 15,000 tourists, especially in Bali, until the 26th. Most VoA users come from Australia, Singapore, the United States, France and England," Nia said in the Ministry of Tourism's Weekly Press Briefing, Monday (28/3/2022).Nia assessed that the VoA policy was more effective than an electronic visa or e-visa in terms of bringing in foreign tourists.“It is very clear that the growth of foreign tourists visiting was when it was still an e-visa and then VoA. There are numbers that get e-visas in one month, while VoA is only for one week," he explained. On the same occasion, Minister of Tourism and Creative Economy Sandiaga Salahuddin Uno said government policies had a positive impact on the level of foreign tourists visiting. "This is a policy that is right on target, has the right benefits, and is on time. And Alhamdulillah, it did not trigger an increase in Covid-19 cases," said Sandi.Currently, there are 42 countries that have access to VoA, making it easier for them to visit Indonesia. The increasing number of visits is expected to be a momentum for economic revival for Indonesia. "Surely this is a new optimism, momentum for our economic revival and can open up business opportunities and jobs," said the Minister of Tourism and Creative Economy. The government plans to expand VoA facilities to several other entrances in Indonesia, including Medan Kualanamu Airport, Soekarno-Hatta Tangerang-Banten, Juanda Surabaya, Sultan Hasanuddin Makassar, and Sam Ratulangi Manado. Source :
