Just plain pickpockets is what they are. They are too stupid to even think about how you can attract the average tourist to the island and keep them happy.

That is of course only when not all people want to take a piece of the pie every single time. Corruption is being covered (up) by an 'official' regulation. It's a shame that they are even allowed to discuss this. :r

Yes, Thailand & Malaysia are quite a bit more clever. There the bill comes after you enter the country...

That Jakarta does not want Bali to ask for "donation" is not because they're scared the tourists will n ot come anymore. No, they don't want to make sure every cent comes into their own pocket.

Where in Malaysia does the bill come after you have entered? I was there recently, but it seems quite a normal tourist industry there. I didn't see anything that was very expensive that I was forced to buy or anything...

I don't mind paying for services, service costs money, but extorting it from arriving tourists must a really negative experience for sure.
