There’s more to Bali than beaches
Tourism accounts for roughly 60% of Bali’s GDP. If you have ever visited one of the province’s famed beaches, you might understand why. However, in the aftermath of COVID-19, tourist traffic is down in a big way–and only a fraction of a percent of what it was in 2020.
Rather than panicking, the government is using this as an opportunity to strengthen other parts of its economy–helping the province recover from “overtourism” and protecting it from whatever unforeseen events may come next.
