Tourists planning to visit some of Bali tourism spots should be aware of upcoming changes, as several popular sites are slated to adjust their entrance fees in the coming year. Among the locations affected are the Ulun Danu Beratan Tourist Attraction (DTW) in Tabanan, Bali, and the Tanah Lot Tourist Attraction (DTW) in Tabanan.
As per I Putu Toni Wirawan, Assistant Manager of Tanah Lot DTW, the revised ticket prices at Tanah Lot DTW are scheduled to take effect from January 1, 2024.
“We are planning to implement this change on January 1, 2024. As of now, there’s no increase; the current prices will remain,” Toni clarified during a Wednesday (23/12) confirmation.
Breaking down the adjustments for domestic tourists, Toni outlined the new rates. For children, the prior cost of Rp15,000 per person will be adjusted to Rp20,000, while for adults, the previous fee of Rp30,000 will be raised to Rp40,000.
For international tourists (wisman), the updated prices will be Rp40,000 for children (up from Rp30,000) and Rp75,000 for adults (up from Rp60,000).
“We plan to implement these changes on January 1, 2024. Currently, the prices remain unchanged, and we have already informed agents and distributed brochures for clarification and awareness,” he explained.
A parallel announcement came from Made Sukarata, Public Relations Manager of Ulundanu Beratan DTW, confirming an impending ticket price adjustment in January 2024 at Ulundanu Beratan DTW. “Certainly, there will be a ticket price increase in 2024,” he affirmed.
While these alterations specifically target domestic tourists, the heightened entrance fees will apply on both regular weekdays and weekends.
On weekdays, the initial fee of Rp30,000 will be adjusted to Rp40,000, and for weekends, the revised rate will be Rp50,000. These modifications will be implemented starting next year. Notably, there will be no changes to the entrance fees for foreign tourists, which will remain at Rp75,000 per person.
Turning the spotlight to other tourist destinations, such as the Pelingpuran Village Tourist Attraction in Bangli Regency, there are no impending price hikes in the lead-up to the Christmas and New Year (Nataru) period.
“If the ticket prices align with what is stated in the Regional Regulation (Perda),” clarified I Wayan Sumiarsa, Manager of Penglipuran Village Tourist Village, upon confirmation.
For this particular village, the current rates stand at Rp50,000 per person for international tourists and Rp25,000 for domestic tourists. “For children (foreign tourists), it’s Rp30,000, and for children (domestic tourists), it’s Rp15,000,” he added.
Addressing concerns about potential price increases ahead of the extended Christmas and New Year holidays, Tjok Bagus Pemayun, Head of the Bali Tourism Office, mentioned that they have not yet conducted checks for any ticket price adjustments during the Nataru holiday season.
Expressing optimism, he conveyed hopes that ticket prices for tourist attractions, whether managed privately or by local governments, will remain stable during this year’s Nataru season.
