Australians Threaten To Keep Holidaying In Bali

Thousands of Australians have vowed to maintain their holiday plans in Bali if Indonesia does not change its stance on the fate of the Bali nine.

Using the hashtag #SeeYaInKuta angry holidaymakers took to Twitter with threats to go ahead with end of year sporting trips, bucks and hens celebrations, and schoolies events just as planned.

“Call this sh*t off, or my culturally insensitive holiday in August stays on” one regular Bali reveller Tweeted.

“There are plenty of other places that we can go. But we didn’t consider any of them” another Tweet said.

Another man posted a photo of himself wearing a Bintang t-shirt and holding a plane ticket, with the caption ‘Your choice’.

A Balinese stallholder responded to the campaign, saying, “These Australians will pay for this. But probably only about 10% of the asking price”.

The Indonesian Government is yet to respond.
