However, so many incidents have been happening in the past few years. It reduced the foreign tourists visit significantly. On July 2009, seven people died from suicide bombers in J.W Marriott and Ritz Carlton Hotel in Jakarta. It begins back in few years before with a bombing in Bali which also took some lives including foreign travelers. Although the terrorists was arrested and executed by death penalty, the country is not 100% safe. There might be possibilities of another terrorist acts to happen. Those anarchist acts has made a big disappointment for all people in the world especially local people. Please stop all the threat in Indonesia.
