With the rapid spread of global pandemic coronavirus across the world, all travels have been cancelled to encourage social-distancing and avoid gatherings. The tourist spots which once used to be jam-packed are currently deserted as people are confining to their homes as a precautionary measure to contain the spread of the deadly pandemic. Many people have cancelled their long-awaited trips to Bali as the tourist hub is now heading to become the epicentre of the virus in Indonesia.
Cancelled Bali trip? You did the right thing!
If you cancelled your trip to Bali amid the coronavirus scare, kudos, you did the right thing. A hub of tourists, Bali is now witnessing more and more COVID-19 cases as the country has so far reported 2273 cases and 198 deaths due to the pandemic. Authorities in Bali confirmed on March 23 that a French tourist who was found slumped over a motorcycle on a busy street died from coronavirus. This was the fourth death from coronavirus in Bali.
How to bring Bali home?
It can be very difficult to confine yourself to home especially when you had plans of a relaxing vacay in Bali. But there are things you can do enjoy your time at home as much as you would have enjoyed your time away from home. Here is what to eat, watch and do to get the vacay vibe.
What to eat and drink?
Seafood? That’s what you would eat when you are in a holiday destination like Bali. Right? Even better you can order your food from the nearby outlet as food delivery services are still running. Sip your favourite cocktail while relishing traditional Bali food that too at the comfort of your home.
What to watch?
If you can’t go to the beach, bring the beach home! Watch some of the most interesting travel movies that take you to the world you crave for. Some of the movies shot in Bali include: Eat Pray Love, Baraka, The Fall, Alex Cross, Goona Goona or The Kriss and Endless Summer II.
This is the time to help the world fight the pandemic by staying at home. You don’t have to go out, you don’t need to fight on the field, all you need to do is stay at home to stay safe and keep everyone around you safe.
