Baliem Valley - Papua

Once you read or give it a deeper study to Danis way of life, dont be surprise that you may find your eye lifting or forehead wrinkling. Why? Because the Dani is uniquely amazing.

The Dani men and women sleep separately in different honai (Danis traditional house). The men sleep grouped in one honai, while the women and children slumber in another honai. As descended from their ancestor, sex is taboo for the women after giving birth, for 2 or 5 years, as the result the Dani generated healthier kids since the women focus on babysitting the kids during the most important phase of growth. This situation makes the men vulnerable to polygamy, its a true fact of life that the Dani men are allowed to have more than 1 wife or as many as he can afford. A man should give 4-5 pigs to the girls parent he wants to marry. For Dani men, his social status are initiated by the number of wives and pigs he has.



Another remarkable custom of Dani is that women will amputate their finger when their relatives die, hence doesnt be surprise when you see women with missing finger.

To enhance the quality of your experience in Baliem Valley, guide is essential since there are no clear maps or signage initiated for visitor. The guide will help to lead the track, communicate with the local people and in advance, the guide will inform the tourist about local dos and donts.

JAKARTA, July 1 - The number of foreign tourists in Indonesia rose nearly 14 percent in May from a year ago, the statistics bureau said on Tuesday, helped by higher arrivals in the key resort island of Bali.

The tourism industry, which accounts for about 5 percent of gross domestic product, was hit by a string disasters in recent years including tsunamis, bomb attacks in Bali, its main tourist attraction, earthquakes, and outbreaks of bird flu.

However, tourist numbers have gone up thanks to an increasing number of visitors to the predominantly Hindu island of Bali which has recovered from a severe blow when Islamic militants launched suicide bomb attacks in 2002 and 2005. The number of foreign tourists in Indonesia rose to 508,955 in May from 447,000 a year ago. Tourist arrivals in Bali rose 23.72 percent to 167,342 from a year ago.

"There are a lot of positive things happening to us, one of them is the travel warning being lifted by the U.S.," chairman of the Indonesian Hotel Association, Yanti Sukamdani, said.

"We expect to be able to attract more foreign arrivals in the peak season of June-September to meet the 7 million target. But we also acknowledge lack of flights will be one of the problems."

The U.S. State Department lifted its travel warning for Indonesia in late May reflecting improved security, while Australia lowered travel warnings for two Indonesian provinces in late June.

The archipelago, which boasts tourist attractions ranging from rainforests to beaches, volcanoes and ancient temples, is aiming to attract 7 million foreign visitors this year.

Foreign tourist arrivals in Southeast Asia's largest economy climbed to 5.51 million in 2007 from 4.87 million in 2006, but fell short of the government's target of 6 million.
Nice

Foreigners patent hundreds of Bali jewelry designs
Irawaty Wardany , The Jakarta Post , Denpasar | Mon, 07/07/2008 10:31 AM | Bali

Balinese jewelry artisans lamented the fact that foreign entrepreneurs had copyrighted hundreds of the country's and the island's traditional jewelry designs, thus, placing the rightful heirs of those designs in a weak legal position.

"There have been some cases in which our artisans faced legal suits because they made jewelry based on traditional motifs and designs which apparently had been patented by foreign businessmen," head of Silver Jewelry Artisans Association, Nyoman Patra, said Saturday in Denpasar.

One of the cases involved John Hardy, an American businessman, and his former employee, Ketut Deni Aryasa. Hardy took Aryasa to court accusing him of stealing his design.

Hardy accused Aryasa of copying the Batu Kali Kombinasi motif. The motif, according to Patra, was based on a traditional Balinese motif.

"We are really concerned about this situation, which is why we have been trying to find out more about which motifs and designs have been patented by foreigners," he said.

The association found that there were around 600 motifs and designs, all based on Indonesia's traditional arts, that have been registered by Hardy as his copyrights.

"And there are 1,200 more designs that are still in the process of copyright certification," he added.

The registered motifs include the Palu motif that the Balinese used to apply on their bokor (brass bowls); Jawan Keplak silver jewelry motif that has been known for hundreds of years in Celuk, Gianyar; the Tulang Naga motif from Pulo village in Lumajang, East Java; Batik Kawung motif that is mostly used by batik makers in Yogyakarta and Surakarta; and the Dayak motif from Kalimantan.

The copyrights for all those motifs have been registered in both Indonesia and the United States.

"That is why we are gathering representatives from artisans and designers in Bali today to talk about this situation because the action of these foreign businessmen has limited our space of creation," he said.

I Kadek Sosiawan, an interior designer, said Balinese artisans had not copyrighted the motifs and designs because they considered them the collective heritage of the Balinese people.

"Those motifs and designs were created by our ancestors and have been used for hundreds of years," he said.

He added that Indonesians, especially Balinese, could not let one group or one person take control of the values that have been passed down from generation to generation on the island.

He suggested all artisan associations form a united front to protect Indonesia's cultural heritage.

Gde Sumarjaya Linggih, a Balinese legislator with the Commission IV at the House of Representatives in Jakarta, said he would assist the artisans and designers in bringing their concerns to the central government.

"This kind of problem will appear again in the future because most of our traditional motifs and designs were created a long time ago while intellectual property rights are only recently being introduced to our country," he said.

He added that Indonesian people did not pay sufficient attention to administrative procedures like intellectual property rights.

"Most of us only focus on working and creating, ignoring the important administrative matters pertaining to the creations," he said.

Such negligence has opened opportunities for foreigners who are more educated in these issues to take advantage of the country's cultural heritage, he said.

"We really need to make a list of our cultural heritage and register their copyrights soon to prevent similar cases from happening in the future," he said.

Nyoman Patra expected artists and designers from other regions in the country to join the Balinese artisans to cooperate with each other in finding a solution to the problem.

Indonesia safe for foreign tourists, US envoy says

Nusa Dua (ANTARA News) - Indonesia is now safe for foreign visitors, US ambassador to Indonesia Cameron Hume said here on Wednesday.

"We believe the threat of terrorism in Indonesia has in the past few years been reduced and the country is now safe," the US envoy said.

He said the improved security condition in Indonesia had been reported to the American people, and the US government itself had lifted its travel warning on Indonesia.

"But the arrest of several terror suspects in Palembang, South Sumatra, recently proves the threat of terrorism still exists in Indonesia," he said.

Hume said the police`s ability in breaking up the terror network in Palembang had earned the Indonesian police a positive assessment.

RI must still work hard to attract seven million tourists
By Andi Abdussalam

Jakarta (ANTARA News) - Indonesia which in January addressed an invitation to people around the world by proclaiming 2008 as "Visit-Indonesia Year" still has to work hard to achieve its target of attracting seven million foreign tourists this year.

On several occasions, Culture and Tourism Minister Jedro Wacik expressed his optimism that the target of seven million of foreign tourist arrivals would be achieved. Yet, on Monday, he spoke in a `pessimistic tone` when he said Indonesia hoped to be visited by about 6.3 to 6.4 million foreign tourists by the end of the year.

The minister mentioned the 6.3-64 million figures based on his estimate that until the second half of 2008, only 3.1 million foreign tourists had arrived in the country.

"I estimate that there were about 3.1 million foreign tourist arrivals in the first semester of 2008. Central Bureau of Statistics (BPS) data showed an increase in foreign tourist arrivals by 14 percent per month. So, it is expected that foreign tourist arrivals in Indonesia will reach 6.3-64 million at the end of the year," the minister said here on Monday.

The figures mentioned by the minister is lower than the target of seven million.

BPS said earlier that the number of foreign tourist arrivals in Indonesia in May 2008 stood at 509,000, or an increase by about 10.85 percent compared with a month earlier when the figure was 459.130

Thus, Indonesia needs to make extra efforts to promote its tourism in order to achieve its target. The minister, however, believed that with hard work, the target could be achieved.

Speaking at the opening of a "Sumatra International Travel Fair" (SITF) and congress of the South East Tour Guide Association (SEATGA) in West Sumatra recently the minister expressed optimism that the target of the Visit Indonesia Year (VIY ) 2008 program to attract seven million foreign tourists will be achieved.

"In January, February, March and April this year, the number of foreign tourists increased by an average of 15 percent compared with the figures in the same months last year," he said.

He said he was optimistic as the number of tourist arrivals in the January-March period this year represented an increase of 15 percent from the figure on the same period last year.

If the 15-percent increase also happened for every remaining month in 2008, the number of tourist arrivals for the whole year would be 6.5 million.

"The balance of 400,000 tourist arrivals is expected to be covered by the many conventions, that have already taken place, are still underway or will be held in Indonesia," he said.

"Therefore, we all have to be optimistic the target of seven million tourist arrivals will be reached so that we will not have hoped and worked in vain," he said.

Besides, the current conditions in the country remain conducive for visitors, despite rallies here and there. The number of foreign tourists visiting Indonesia was not affected by the widespread demonstrations against the fuel oil price hikes nor by the increasing political temperature ahead of the 2009 general elections.

"Foreigners are now even saying Indonesia is an interesting country," the minister said.

The current situation must be maintained so that conditions in Indonesia remained conducive for the Visit Indonesia Year 2008. After all, the terrorism issue which disturbed the country in the past several years has also died out.

Owing to the relatively stable security conditions in Indonesia, the United States has lifted its travel warning on Indonesia.

Presidential Spokesman Dino Pati Djalal said that the lifting of a US travel warning on Indonesia is expected to help increase the number of US tourist arrivals in the country in 2008.

"The lifting of the travel warning recently is something we have been awaiting for a long time," Dino Pati Djalal said in response to the lifting of the US travel warning that had been in force since 2000.

He said before the US government officially revoked the travel warning, its embassy in Jakarta had notified the Indonesian government on Washington`s plan to lift it.

A number of US prominent figures had visited Indonesia such as Bill Gates and director of computer processor Intel Corporation Craig R Barret.

At the end of 2007 in Bali, Indonesia also successfully hosted the UN Convention on Climate Change which was attended by a number of heads of state and prominent figures from various parts of the world.

"The whole world now knows that Indonesia is secure. As for the threat of terrorist activity, it can happen anywhere," Djalal said.

According to H. Sarbini, chairman of the Tourist Friendship Forum (Fosipa), the United States` decision to lift its travel warning to its citizens to visit Indonesia, provides a big opportunity for tourism authorities in the country to resume luring American and European tourists to come to Indonesia.

"The United States is a symbol of the world`s community. Thus, if Americans are now free to go to Indonesia, Europeans will automatically be encouraged to follow suit. The lifting of the travel warning will also provide an opportunity and will psychologically restore the confidence of Indonesian tourism authorities," he said. (*)

Kak dyto, Festival Sriwijaya taun ini mengecewakan yah?? Pa lagi exponya, sepi banget, membosankan, terkesan alakadarnya 'yang penting ada lah'..
Gue kira taun ini bakal meriah n heboh sehubungan Visit Musi 2008, eh.. gak taunya Payah ni.. apa gara2 Pilkada yah, tu kegiatan jadi nggak banget

Bwat temen2 yang laen, gue mo info n foto2nya nih dari Sumatra Int'l Travel Fair 2008 di Padang n Legian Beach Festival 2008 (dah mulai lum tuh??).

Eh..di Bengkulu tiap tahunnya ada Festival Tabot lho, sbenernya nih upacara adat yang digelar skitar 1mingguan untuk mempringati kematian Imam Husein bin Abi Thalib. Gue rasa nih acara lumayan unik karena dibumbui dengan ritual mistik (pake acara kesurupan segala!!) dan pembuatan menara pemujaan dari kertas warna warni yang lumayan tinggi trus diarak keliling kota untuk selanjutnya di larung ke laut.
Pemda setempat memanfaatkan upacara tabot ini dengan menggelar expo dan pertujukkan seni lainnya.
Selama pengamatan gue, ternyata banyaknya juga turis mancanegara yang datang, kebanyakkan sih.. dari Aussie dan Jepang.

ntah latah ato emang lagi trend, Gubernur Bengkulu (gubernur termuda di Indonesia dan Dunia, kelahiran 1971, dilantik pada usia 34th. /http://www.suarakarya-online.com/news.html?id=145630) menetapkan Visit Bengkulu Year 2009 dan pencanangan Bengkulu sebagai Kota Wisata Internasional.
Tapi sayang, fasilitas n infrastruktur di Bengkulu masih minim
Bandaranya aja mirip ama stasiun Kertapati Palembang

Yah..yang penting udah ada niat n usahanya dulu lah..
selanjutnya..

Well, Erau Festival is a prosperity symbol in Kutai Kartanegara. This regency wanna show to us that Kutai Kartanegara isn’t a less regency. The other side, this festival also wanna show a relationship between Kutai Kartanegara with the ancient Kutai Kingdom (The eldest kingdom in Indonesia). Actually, the festival has been doing since several centuries ago when the glorious of ancient Kutai Kingdom empire. That times, the king was invited custom figures and prominent society to enjoy the party. No wonder if this festival’s name is Erau ‘cause in local language ‘Erau’ means happiness or cheerfull.

Nowdays, this festival presented many local traditional culture and art show, such custom dances, castanets, handicraft n also custom rituals. Not only Dayak culture show up in this festival, but we can also find Malayan, Javanese, Bugises n of course Chinese culture show. Because of Kutai Kartanegara is a host of PON XVII 2008, this festival held concern with its quarter national games.

Not only that for Kutai Kartanegara, this regency has awesome tourism infrstructur. Have you heard Kumala Island in the middle of Mahakam River??? Yeah.. The Indonesian future island, I guest right now. This island has modern facilities likes the rotating sky tower (one n only in Indonesia), cable car, huge aquarium, little fantasy land, the replica of Borobudur temple, Prambanan temple and Mendut temple, the replica of traditional house (Lamin House) of Dayak Kenyah, Modang and Mancong, ups finally of course resort facilities there.

Kutai Kartanegara is easily accessible by land and air, even river transportation. You can get regular buses from Samarinda (the capital of East Kalimantan) with just 30 minutes (45 km2) or Balikpapan (the biggest city n entry point of this province) with just 2,5 hours.

What else you waiting guys?? Let’s come to Kutai Kartanegara, the most admired tourist destination in East Kalimantan, even East Indonesia .
