RESEARCH NOTE BOMB BLASTS IN BALI: IMPACT ON TOURISM
Abstract:On October 12, 2002, Muslim terrorists detonated two powerful bombs that destroyed Paddy's Club Café and Sari Club Café located in the tourist district of Bali, which killed 202 people and wounded hundreds more (mostly Australians and other Western tourists). Tourism is vital to Bali (an idyllic Hindu enclave within the mostly Muslim Indonesian Archipelago), and contributed as much as 60% of Bali's gross domestic regional product. Using the results from input–output analysis and our own survey, we found that terrorist acts of wanton destruction have an immediate and drastic effect on tourism and the locals, but an attractive destination that offers good value will soon rebound.
