Good to have such wealthy tourists. This is actually what some people, business in hospitality, tourism industries dream onNow of course this is something he wants, the Ho wedding…
They spent like 93 billion rupiah (approx. $6,3M, €5,8M, £5M) on the event in total.
The system is already there, no need for a new system.

But how many of them ?? Certainly it is easier said than done.
What about Three stars or below accommodations, hostels. What about the low end accommodation around poppies lane in Kuta ??
What about Made warung, and other street food vendors (Low end restaurant)
What about seafood vendors around Jimbaran Bay ??
What about street vendors, shop selling low end souvenirs.
What about beach boys with their surfing boards or vendors .. around Kuta, Beach
What about Ketut, Nyoman and certainly Slamet (from Java but still an Indonesian) offering Grab / Gojek services ??
Count that how many people working in small and medium enterprise industries. Who is going to substitute their earning their living cost, to feed their families ??
In any industry around the world you name it they cater all types customers, low, mid. high end customers, not just exclusively for high end customers.
You have people are selling Rolex, Patek Philippe, Breitling, Tag Heuer but how many street vendors are selling imitation watch in Bali and the Tourist are buying it, knowing that it is imitation.
You have Louis Vuitton, Hermes, Balenciaga, but how many street vendors are selling imitation bags in Bali and the Tourist are buying it.
You have tourist are renting HD, Mercedes, Jaguar, Bentley, limousine taxi services but compare that with Chinese Japanese/Chinese auto-mobile, EVs, motorbikes modified to look like HD. How many Grab, Gojek drivers outthere??
In the past around 1970-1980+ people who dreamed on this concept, mainly come from the main lobby owner of exclusive hotels, hotel packages, aiming for monopoly but the idea was scrapped and back to square one after witnessing the impact of it. They called these type of tourist as "Sandals Tourists". They forgot that it is the sandals tourist who keep coming back to Bali such as those from neighbouring (not far) countries such as AU, JP, KR, SG, CH, HK, TW, etc. Some tourist keep coming back sometimes a few times a year as they have BFs, GFs or other halves. Typically these types of tourist are not wealthy like pensioners with big pension pots, but they come regularly. Do you really want them to disappear ??
Even in a well known, world class tourist cities in Europe such as London, Paris, Rome, Barcelona, Milan, Amsterdam, Berlin, Prague, Budapest, Edinburgh, Venice, Istanbul, Dubrovnik, a few to name, Have you ever seen these tourists cities are just targeting wealthy tourists ?. Typically you will find these cities have accommodation from five stars, to hostel accommodation. Same with public transport and taxis, etc Also food from exclusive gourmet restaurant to fast food street vendor.
Why try to redesign a new wheel if the same design failed in the past. There is no good model that has been proven to be working anywhere in the world.
Those who are proposing this scheme do not you ever sleep in hostels, pensions, three stars accommodation when you travel worldwide to any tourist destination especially when you were poor when you were still a student. Do not you ever eat mie goreng, nasi goreng or Seafood from street vendors such as in Jimbaran Bay? Are you sincerely wanting them to disappear ?? Keep in mind like typically in Indonesia when this thing did happen I Wayan Koster has been promoted to a higher level. The problem in Indonesia is those people are not normally accountable for the blunder, wrong decision they made, just the opposite they might be rewarded because of big money getting involved.
If you proposed an indecent proposal to this little girl she would perform a headlock at you and took you down.
Yes that one who was sandy long ago always strikes me as not the smartest book in the library.
Gormless. Out of their depth. Prone to talking before thinking especially on things concerning that place over there
Its like having a model hanging around just to make the place look younger and prettier
