The Balinese population of 3.0 million (1.5% of Indonesia's population) live mostly on the island of Bali, making up 89% of the island's population. There are also significant populations on the island of Lombok, and in the eastern-most regions of Java (e.g. the Municipality of Banyuwangi). It is the most populous Hindu majority island in the world.



"From the 1970s onwards Bali really became a tourist destination," says Wayan Suardana, head of Walhisimilan, a conservation group campaigning for the environment. "But to begin with it was mainly cultural tourism. Now we are seeing mass tourism. "By 2015 Bali could be facing a drinking water crisis," Suardana says.

More than a million visitors came to Bali in 2001. Every year 700 hectares of land is lost to hotels, luxury housing for rich foreigners or just roads to improve connections on the island. In an attempt to mitigate the ill effects of mass tourism on the local Hindu culture – an exception in largely Muslim Indonesia – the authorities have introduced environmental legislation.
The bupati are not in favour of the new law. "Local leaders have no long-term perspective," he adds. In January 2011, the governor of Bali, Made Mangku Pastika, issued a ban on new buildings in heavily developed areas, warning that Bali was in danger of becoming a sterile land bristling with concrete.
"Tourism is partly due to the attraction of our culture: if mass tourism develops in a way that threatens our culture, we will lose our specific attraction," says Ida Bagus Ngurah Wijaya, head of the Bali tourist board and the owner of a hotel at Sanur, a prime destination.

"We have used culture as merchandise," says poet and theatre director Ketut Yuliarsa, a native of Ubud. "The Balinese are deeply attached to their religion and culture: they spend a lot of time in the temples and respect the ritual. Many Balinese are unaware of the changes going on," Yuliarsa says.

"Four-fifths of Balinese society is deeply committed to daily worship," says Audrey Lamou, who headed the Alliance Fran├žaise on the island for several years. Compared with other holiday venues in south-east Asia, Bali has retained much of its magic, at least in the areas so far spared by mass tourism.
