Child prostitution rampant in tourist destinations: Bali Daily

Child prostitution rampant in tourist destinations: Bali Daily | Scoop Indonesia | Scoop.it
Daily English language newspaper in Indonesia
Julia B.'s insight:

Unfortunately, this press article confirms  and reminds me a similar vision of a white Tourist (60-65 yo) seen in my last  trip to Bali, exactly in Ubud,  with a young indonesian girl (12-14 yo)....

I even didn't sleep one all night long as I was terribly shocked to be the witness of such disgusting vision, I was sick to see the way this man was with the little teenager, made up and dress up like a woman !

A local guy confirmed it was child prostitution... OMG...Sad reality in "gods islands"...

One of the consequences of Mass Tourism in some spots of Asia and other travel destinations: refuges of some pervert people and the land of corrupt people in sex tourism.

 

Please, behave when you travel,  and fight fot the rights of the Child !
