Bali tourism has proven to be back to normal with tourist arrivals increasing. We can see this development from tourist visits to Bali’s International Airport to tourist attractions. Domestic tourist visits to this paradise island still dominate. It is because the school holiday season has started. Likewise, foreign tourist visits continue to increase with the addition of the number of direct flights to Bali. It is, of course, very influential with business activities on the island of the gods, which were previously very sluggish. All business in Bali comes from tourism. So, this is the motor of Bali’s economic movement.

Kuta Beach is a favourite beach in Bali, with white sand stretching 5 kilometres from the Tuban area to Seminyak. This beach has become a tourist attraction for foreign and domestic tourists.

Canggu is a newly developed tourist area on the island of the gods. This area is the only area in Bali that is never empty of tourists, even during the pandemic. Other tourist attractions in Bali have been quiet during the pandemic. But this is very different with Canggu. Canggu is a favourite area for tourists, especially foreign tourists. This place is also the area where The Tunjung Boutique Resort is located. Canggu has advantages that other places don’t have.
