    Bali Warnings for 2014

    ho hum....

    DFAT issues Indonesia travel warning, citing terrorist threat


    The Department of Foreign Affairs has issued a travel warning to Indonesia, including tourist hotspot Bali, because of the high threat of a terrorist attack.

    The department's latest travel advice contains a warning that terrorists remain active in the country despite police efforts to stop them.

    "Indonesian authorities have warned that extremists may be planning to attack churches in Jakarta, and elsewhere in Indonesia, during the 2014 new year period," the travel advice said.

    Earlier this month national police chief Sutarman said there were indications that militants may be assembling bombs to target areas of worship.

    "The terrorists have cells everywhere and they are active. We are continuing to pursue them," he told reporters, without giving details of specific targets.

    DFAT warns the threat to Australians in Indonesia may reach beyond churches.

    "Terrorists have previously attacked or planned to attack places where Westerners gather, including nightclubs, bars, restaurants, international hotels, airports and places of worship in Bali, Jakarta and elsewhere in Indonesia," it said.

    "These types of venues could be targeted again."

    There have been several attacks on Western targets in the past decade, including the 2002 Bali bombings which killed 202 people, including 88 Australians.

    DFAT also notes that travellers to Indonesia could experience natural disasters like tsunamis, or be the victims of petty crime, drink-spiking and scams.

    The advice does not recommend Australians stay away from Indonesia, but it does urge travellers to exercise a high degree of caution in the country.

    However, Australians are urged to reconsider the need to travel to some areas including the provinces of Central Sulawesi, Maluku and Papua.

    I will be living there for 6 weeks kicking off mid April.

    After living in Bangkok with the threat of getting run over crossing the road, breaking ones leg tripping over broken pavements, falling down open holes, getting some horrid disease after being splashed with klong water on the San Saeb or being raped by a mad katoey on Yaba.

    The chances of being blown up in a terrorist attack in Bali seem quite a relief.

    Let me elaborate.

    Every year DFAT issues a warning about Bali and churches and possible terrorist attacks during the Xmas/NY period.

    Therefore the value of such warnings are nil, hence the ho hum.

    A good friend died in the last Jakarta bombing and there was no warning then.

    I'm with T, the biggest threat to my personal safety in Thailand is simply crossing the street...

    Surely not, and anyway Islam is a peaceful ideology, even our glorious leaders say so.
