I was in Bali last week, for Kaspersky Lab APAC PR Meet, which was held at Intercontinental Bali Resort, at Jimbaran, Bali.

All of us at Tan-Vijayan love Bali.  Although we are not much beach kind of family, we enjoyed ourselves very much at Ubud, the place filled with arts, crafts as well as paddy field and good food.

While speaking to the local Balinese, I was told that most Balinese left their homes to work on the cruises, as the pay is much better compares to working in the island.  Therefore, the island is short of manpower, and thus many Javaness are entering the Bali Island to work here.

The island is mainly occupied by 80% of Hindus, and less than 15% of Muslims.  There are 4 million population in Bali, and the island expects 6-7 million tourists to come here every year.  Most of the tourists are coming from Australia and China.
