Bali has again been recognized by a distinguished travel magazine as the best island in the Asia-Pacific region for 2009, Antara has reported.



"Bali has been honored as The Best Island in Asia Pacific 2009 by DestinAsian Magazine in Hong Kong," Culture and Tourism Ministry's director for promotion facilities Esthy Reko Astuty said Thursday.


She said Bali won the honor through a poll in DestinAsian Readers' Choice Awards in a survey which sought readers' opinions on their favorite destinations, hotels, and airlines in the Asia-Pacific region and announced every February.

"Bali has been chosen four times consecutively as the Best Island in Asia Pacific by DestinAsia Magazine since 2006," she said.

According to Bali Tourism Office records, Bali has garnered at least 25 awards from various international magazines and countries since 1998. Most of the awards were given to Bali for its unique destination and natural beauty found nowhere else in the world.

    I'd love to comment on the 'natural beauty' of Bali but it's hard to see under the mountains of garbage that increasingly fill the streets, rivers and valleys of the once gorgeous land. Bali is filthy and the waterways and beaches are polluted more and more every week. It makes me so sad, it's so unnecessary and it's we Indonesians, not the tourists, who are doing this. When will we learn?

    Bali, the famed Island of the Gods, with its varied landscape of hills and mountains, rugged coastlines and sandy beaches, lush rice terraces and barren volcanic hillsides all providing a picturesque backdrop to its colorful, deeply spiritual and unique culture, stakes a serious claim to be paradise on earth. And I am sure Bali will win such awards in future also.
