Bali and the virus

The south-east Asian island is one of the favourite tourist spot for guests from Australia, Japan and Europe, just to name a few of our largest visitor groups. Tourism is one of the biggest economic force on the island. Even Indonesian visitors from the mainland Java frequent the Hindu dominated island in large numbers. Like in any tourist hotspot Bali government officials try to find the balance of protecting the Balinese people from the virus while respecting also commercial needs of the people. Since March most travel to Bali has been suspended and Visa waiver are not being issued for the time being. There is no official shutdown but local leaders appeal to the people to practice social distancing. Many places are closed and only essential businesses operate with increased sanitary protocols. With less air planes frequenting Denpasar Airport our team at the Bali Coral Farm is dealing with some challenges regarding shipping. We are still operating as a Indonesia coral exporter and ship worldwide. As expected, orders have been a bit slower than normal. With retail in a shutdown in many countries in Europe, Asia, and the Amerikas, the wholesale coral export has been affected. The upside is that our coral importers have opportunity to specify and individualize their shipments, as we have a very large variety in stock, ready to ship. With more people worldwide staying at home during social distancing efforts, having a beautiful coral reef with vibrant life coral in ones living room is the best thing while waiting for tropical paradises to open their doors once again. Until then we will do our best to supply life coral to our sequestered customers out there. Stay safe, stay home and see you hopefully soon again in our tropical paradise.
