“Even in the 1930s people were aware that tourist clichés had arisen about the island, but in the 1950s the image of Bali as paradise became fixed,” wrote Adrian Vickers. A Balinese literary star, a scholar, a publisher and a cartoonist ask, after a century of tourism, is Bali still the ‘Morning of the World’?

“Bahkan pada tahun 1930-an, masyarakat sadar bahwa ada hal klise di balik pariwisata di pulau ini, tetapi pada tahun 1950-an, citra Bali sebagai surga pariwisata justru dikukuhkan,” tulis Adrian Vickers. Seorang bintang sastra, cendekiawan, penerbit buku, dan kartunis, menanyakan hal yang sama, setelah satu abad menjadi destinasi wisata, apakah Bali tetap menjadi ‘Morning of the world’?
