Bali Governor Warns Naughty Tourists Will Be Kicked Out On The Spot

It's no secret that some tourists don't respect the local cultures of the place they're travelling.

That's been the case for as long as travelling has been around and it's unlikely going to change in the future unless there's a massive incentive to not be a dickhead.

Well, Bali is hoping to introduce a pretty decent incentive: if you mess up, you'll be kicked out.

The Indonesian holiday location has been a hotbed of unruly travellers who do really stupid things year round, all to the anger of locals.

But Bali's Governor Wayan Koster is fed up with these people flocking to their shores every day and causing a ruckus. He's warned that people doing the wrong thing will simply just be told to leave the country.

"In the future, if there are tourists behaving like that we should just send them home, they are being disorderly coming to Bali. We will give them this warning," he told reporters.

"There needs to be more order, from the services and facilities at tourist attractions, as well as the ethics of tourists. We will give a standard for guidance."

Zdenek Slouka used the holy water from a Hindu temple in Bali to splash it on his girlfriend's, Sabina Dolezalova, bum. The spring water is sacred because it is used for ritual purification.

Not only is this just simply a bit of a weird thing to do, but the video has received a torrent of criticism from Indonesians. Known to be a conservative country, where the majority of tourists respect local customers, many locals were deeply offended by their actions at the holy site.

Governor Koster also wants these sites to take a more proactive approach to ensuring everyone who visits them knows what the customs are.

"They shouldn't think merely on the basis of income, and then allow tourists to engage in disrespectful behavior,' he said.

In addition to desecrating holy sites, just being a terrible person is also getting on authority's last nerve.

An Australian bloke remains in jail after he was videoed allegedly fly-kicking a person off a moped before throwing himself onto the bonnet of a car.

The Adelaide man says he can't remember anything from his 'rampage' but he's willing to pay any compensation needed in order to get home.
