Indonesia’s ‘bali’ is the most expensive travel story in Asia
Indonesia’s bali is the biggest travel story among Southeast Asia’s major economies.
The capital, Jakarta, is a bustling metropolis of more than 8 million people, and its reputation for high-end hotels and restaurants has made it a popular destination for travelers.
The country’s first “bali” airport opened in 2008, with flights to and from Bali, Surabaya and Surabai, and to the Indonesian island of Sulawesi, the capital of Papua New Guinea, starting in the summer of 2012.
In March 2015, a second “balyi” airport in Jakarta opened, in a joint venture between the government and private developers.
But Bali’s appeal is limited to tourists.
Its best-known attractions are its restaurants, malls and hotels, and, while the Bali Beach is the country’s most visited beach, many people also visit the Bala Aceh region, where it is the largest island.
