Bali, Indonesia’s number one tourist destination, famous for surf, sand, temples, parties… you name it the island has it.
But of course, tourist destinations are also hubs for crime. With Bali’s international status and the influx of affluent tourists inevitably criminals from all walks of life make their way over: local, national and international. This is indeed why Bali’s infamous Kerobokan Prison has been given the nickname the “United Nations of Prisons”. Hell in paradise.
Most prominently known for holding the Bali Nine, the international drug traffickers that were detained back in 2005, Kerobokan Prison has remained a mystery for years. However, for the first time ever, an international TV crew was given access inside the prison walls to give us an idea of what prison life was like on the Island of the Gods.
