Natural Disaster and Political Movement Issues

Indonesia is the largest country with 16.065 islands. The biggest issues in Indonesia are natural disasters and political movements. Climate is also one of the issues that deal with Indonesian tourism.

There are 139 volcanic mountains in Indonesia, 18 are active volcanic mountains, and 14 of them erupted during 2017. The latest issue of the volcano eruption is Mount Agung in Bali.

In September 2017 the volcano erupted again, and it continued until July 2018. The early eruption in 2017 had a serious impact on the tourism industry in Indonesia, especially in Bali and beyond.

Ngurah Rai Airport in Bali has been closed 2 times during the eruption since 2017. The news update of the volcano eruption report that there is no serious issue to the tourism industry due to the eruption. So the tourism industry is running well at the moment.

Indonesia's political movement has one of the most serious impacts on the tourism industry in Indonesia. The demonstration, election, and many more are things that treat serious issues in tourism.

Komodo Island Closure is Canceled

Due to the policy of the East Nusa Tenggara Tourism agency, Komodo Island will temporarily close by the beginning of 2020. The closure itself is intended for the environmental rehabilitation of the island and improving the conservation of the Komodo Dragons.
