The Dilemma Of Balinese Tourism

The Dilemma Of Balinese Tourism
The dilemma of tourism towards the survival of nature and culture of Bali has been feared by scholars since the 1930s.

During this time Bali tourism now with the intervention of outside parties: in the days of the colonial Netherlands parties and a handful of other foreigners, and in the days of the independence of the Central Government (aided local bureaucrats) along the great financier of Bali. The local population and its culture are seen as mere commodities or objects: provider of cultural attractions — become a spectacle — and healthcare service providers. Planning and management of not being a portion of local involvement. Until now these patterns continue to run. The latest example is the pembabatan area of the protected forest in the area of Bedugul hotels for permission from Jakarta pocketed unbeknownst to local people; also plan to build Geothermal power plants that are suspected of being part of the scenario for the development of extensive land mastery resort although obviously got widespread rejection of the community.

No denying that today's tourism economy brought blessing to Bali, though uneven because there is a small group of local people who get big portions. But in General, because the effect of the multiplier, an increase in per capita income or purchasing power of the people. The influx of large effect on increasing the financiers of the number and quality of tourism as well as a means of supporting facilities including the repair of roads in Bali that ensure a smooth economic activities in General. Likewise the industry support or follow-up is thriving.

Increased income per capita by Balinese allocated in fulfillment of the needs of modern life, such as ancillary costs of education, transportation, and other modern products. As humans generally people of Bali have also aroused by the thought of temptation goods consumerism. And of course some allocated on the Customs and rituals of religious activities, including the inside of the performing arts. The pattern of life in two worlds is pressing for the Balinese people always have money. The reliance of tourism to Bali in Bali modern survival has been such a big. Tourism has become the main flagship, replacing agriculture and small industry.

Meanwhile, the Balinese people also watched and felt the drastic changes that are going on around them, especially since the tourism boom of the 1980s. Impact-the impact they see is the shift in land-agricultural land into a residential and tourist areas; Sea, Lake and river terpolusi; the volume of rubbish especially inorganic risen sharply; energy and clean water dispersed-scatter them; the increasing population density in part by an influx of migrants from outside the island of Bali, foreign and domestic; as well as rising crime, misuse of alcohol and drugs, and the spread of HIV/AIDS. Not to mention other problems-problems, and are still buried under the surface. The number of people of Bali are starting to fall into behaviors that jeopardize and violation of the law has also increased.

More recently, since 2003 following the 2002 Bali bombing, appeared a discourse is widespread now Are called Bali. A discourse on the essence of the emerging concern or confusion is Balinese people see a variety of negative situations that occurred in Bali, including fears of Balinese people becoming a minority in the island due to the rush of immigrants from other islands, especially Java and Lombok. Act No. 22/1999 and PP No. 25/2000 on autonomous region that focuses on regional level II also feared could destabilize Bali as a unity of nature and culture for interpretations and different interests from existing counties in Bali. So there's still a discourse-a discourse that Bali had special autonomy which is autonomous in the provincial level (see Tim Framers Bali Post 2004).

The impact or influence of tourism on the culture of Bali by researchers described as negative and positive. The negative impact is the occurrence of commercialization, commodification and profanisasi that leads to penggerusan; medium impact result terpacunya creativity art culture is the local population to meet the interests of tourism (see Ruastiti, 2005; Ardika 2004). In the context of the traditional performing arts of positive and negative influence also occurred. The emergence of real creativity once looks at growing increasingly different types of performance art in Bali including the growing number of actuator artistry, but at the same time some of the sacred Dance ritual procession elements including having profanisation due to begin its premiere to tourists.

Embalming in West Toraja Regency of Indonesia

Embalming is a way that used to be dead or living creatures who've not animate do not rot. This way I know when you are in the hamlet of Barerreng in 1999. At that time there was a neighbor died , named Ne'tammubua ', when I visited the family home that I smell very sting. When I asked to my friend of named Katiandagho "smell is this?"
"Is the process of preserving bodies" he replied. On this occasion I while reminiscing about the area I told the previous experience I never experienced it. More than one I tell them is Baruppu' society, Unique culture cemetry.

embalming in toraja
Ma'nene procession ' at Toraja
Centuries earlier, when the practice of preserving bodies is done, nobody knows exactly why and when it starts. Obviously, before Christianity entered the Tana Toraja Regency the first time around 1913, the Toraja people embraced the faith or belief Todollo Aluk ' to ancestors and nature. At first the corpse-bodies that laid out in a rock cave, then put on a stone. The corpse was decay, even dry up.
Until a while preserving the bodies performed using potions, using leaf vinus, kerosene, stem plants resembling tille – sugar cane stalks but smaller and not eaten –, tea leaves, and salt. These materials together and then crushed and poured into the mouth of the corpse. The rest is smeared on the skin. Natural and helps preserving and drying the corpses properly.

Entering the 1990s, preserving bodies done simpler, i.e. injecting chemicals or better known as formalin. The result of dozens of bodies not durable when compared to their ancestors tens and hundreds of years ago. "Ways of injecting use chemicals called formalin is done to every millimeter surface of bodies", said Mr. katiandagho added the explanation to me.
After the process is completed, then the cadaver preservation stored at home, while waiting until ready for the grave stone to be placed or already prepared by the family of the deceased. To get the cost of a funeral procession which require tens of millions of corpses even billions of rupias, each Member of the family to wander in all directions in the territories or abroad.

Another corpse in Sicily, Rosalia Lombardo, a daughter of Sicily was two years old, who died in 1920, still looks fresh. Muminya known as "the Sleeping Beauty" is stored in a glass box in Palermo, Italy.
Herb what makes these mummies still looks fresh, became a secret for years. However, biological anthropologist from the Institute for Mummies and the Iceman named Dario Piombino-Mascali managed to uncover her inimitable blend of which are used to preserve the Rosalia.
He find out the materials used from the relatives and close people Alfredo Salafia, an expert maker of processed taksidermis or who died in 1933. Hand made note of Salafia revealed that he injects a chemical substances to the body in the form of Rosalia formalin, Zinc salt, alcohol, salicylic acid and glycerol.
Formaldehyde is an ingredient that is currently most commonly used to preserve corpses. A mixture of formaldehyde and water it kills all the bacteria causes decay the flesh. Salafia is one of the pioneers of the use of such chemicals to preserve the corpses.

While alcohol in a dry area will function maintains the corpse remains dry thus more Rosalia durable against changes in temperature and humidity. Glycerol as the oil will prevent her body too dry and salicylic acid to prevent the growth of fungus.
However, the primary key is embalming Zinc salt. According to Melissa Johnsons Williams, Executive Director of the American Society of Embalmers, zinc is not used in the process of preservation in the us. With zinc bodies become stiff, if lifted from the crate and let it stand, bodies will be able to stand ... heheh

Gili Trawangan – An Island of Million Enchantment in Lombok

This is Lombok in Indonesia, exotic island in Nusa Tenggara Barat (NTB) which is one prove of the natural beauty of Indonesian Archipelago. Not only the sea and stunning beaches, culture and customs which still maintained by the communities are also still attractive.
A few days ago, President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono inaugurated the international airport of Lombok. But it does not necessarily increase the potential of tourism in Lombok which is all this time beneath the shadow of Bali island. Though many potential regions and traditions of local people become the main destination for tourists around the world. 
One of the main destination for tourists Gili Trawangan Island which has been well-known to foreign tourists as well as the Sade traditional village viable for your visit. The trip to Gili Trawangan by motor boat takes only 20 minutes from Bangsal Port.

BANGSAL PORT
Bangsal Port which located in Kecamatan Pemenang, North Lombok, NTB is the gateway for tourists both domestic and overseas, which will lead to three dykes, Gili Air, Gili Meno, and Gili Trawangan. From the center city of Mataram, there are two paths that can be passed, the first passing Lane along the West coast of Lombok with good streets and quite extensive, while the second pathway is through Pusuk Forest Zone, filled with hundreds of monkeys. The course was good, but somewhat narrow.
The time needed from downtown to the port approximately half an hour by private vehicles. Once inside the gate that read “Welcome to Bangsal”, you will find a light blue shirt Transportation Agency officers guarding the parking lot. Here, the officers should be directing the tourists to the parking lot, though the distance between the parking lot and harbor is about 300 meter away. In the parking lot there standby cidomo (cikar-dokar-mobil) ready to take tourists to the Port. It appeared in the parking lot there is also the duty of the officers, there you can negotiate with the officers so that cars can go up to the port by paying Rp 20.000.

GILI TRAWANGAN
http://www.google.co.id/imgres?q=gili+trawangan
Gili Trawangan is one of the three exotic island besides Gili Meno and Gili Air which became a tourist destination in Lombok. The beauty of white extended sandy beach and the stunning scenery attracted the tourists to keep coming. Not much can be done on this island, the daily activities are water sports such as diving, snorkelling around the island by bicycle or walking, or just relaxing while enjoying views of the beach. In the afternoon many people gathered in the west of the island to watch the sunset, the place called the sunset view.
Satisfied with the coast and sea, tourists are able to know better the indigenous people of Lombok, the Sasak tribe in Sade Village, who still maintain their tradition strong. Like wooden houses roofed with the leaves of straw, making weaving cloth, famous Sade village, and of course the most unique one is floor house covered with sewage.
http://www.google.co.id/imgres?q=gili+trawangan

No one indeed the movement of tourism awareness in Sade Village. The aim is only one, to attract more tourists and empower local residents. One more tourists’ destination in Indonesia worth a visit. Enjoying the natural charm of Lombok and learn cultural values.

TOWARD GILI TRAWANGAN

Toward Gili Trawangan from Lombok Island can be reached by various means, commonly used are crossing boats from the Port of Bangsal. To reach the port itself you need a taxi from the airport of Selaparang, Lombok which cost around 100000 rupiahs. But be careful with the offers of taxi at the exit point. Walk a bit to the main road outside the port and then take the BlueBird taxi.

Usually the driver will give you two choices of routes to the Port of Bangsal, namely through the middle lane and the coastal lane. Beach lane (jalur pantai) is the road surpass the outskirts of the west of Lombok among others Senggigi, Pura Batu Bolong and several view points with beautiful beaches. I suggest you choose this route, the road is better and smooth relatively, but if you choose the middle lane you will pass the forest monkey or known by Baun Pusuk.
