The Indonesian Government is planning to ban backpackers from travelling to Bali when their borders reopen.

They're aiming for 'quality tourism’ so won't allow backpackers to enter the island. 

Travel agent Rosann Conolly told Heather du Plessis-Allan it'll be interesting to see if Bali can sustain this.

“You need to look at the likes of Kuta. Now this is largely a backpackers market. What will this region be suffering if they are aiming for what they deem as a ‘quality tourist’?”
