TERROR IN TOKYO On Monday 20th March 1995 during morning rush hour, a terrorist organisation attacked five crowded commuter trains in the heart of Tokyo with nerve gas. Using a real-time split-screen foramt, this programme reveals, minute-by-minute, the horrific seffects that nerve gas has on people who are completely unaware of what is happening to them. It explains how their central nervous systems were paralysed by this terrifying man-made agent and how they suffocated where they stood. This anonymous, indisciminate and seemingly motiveless attempt at mass murder shocked the world. THE BALI BOMBING As hundreds of revellers enjoyed a night out in a popular nightclub in Kuta Beach, Bali, members of a Malaysian Al Qaeda cell were preparing to unleash a devastating attack. Dual explosions ripped through the Sari Club, killing more than 200 innocent holidaymakers and maimed many more. The existence of a truly global terrorist network instantly became a terrifying reality.
Advantages: Nightlife, good place to learn how to surf Disadvantages: Full of drunken tourists, no real budget accommodation, zero culture....
...and the Canary Islands; A place to get drunk and party for much less than they would at home, with great beaches and reliably hot and sunny weather.
Other than the nightclubs, bars, resturants, shops, and travel agents selling tickets and packages to other destinations in Indonesia, the only other thing Kuta really has are Surf instructing shops selling surfing lessons.
The waves on kuta beach are perfect...
Advantages: Cheap, sunny and plenty to do Disadvantages: Can be loud with the nightlife
...Kuta is the most popular tourist destination in Bali. The beaches here are absolutely beautiful.... as long as you don't look too close (there is a lot of rubbish).
When I first arrived there I had no idea where I was going to stay which was kind of scary but a couple of us hunted around for cheap accommodation and eventually found a place called Uncle Sams on poppies lane.
Advantages: Good facilities, sunset view, warm people Disadvantages: None
...I've visiting Bali (one of the most beautiful islands in Indonesia) several times for business and leisure between 2000-2005.
One of my first choice hotels in Indonesia is ones that owned by Santika Group (the big company in Indonesia) for customer-care reason.
One of Santika Group's hotels is Hotel Santika Beach Bali.
The hotel is easy to be reached from the airport.
