Indonesia’s tourism hotspots are often in the spotlight because of the importance of tourism to the country’s economy.
The country’s most popular destination is Bali, where people flock for its famous temples, jungle beaches and palm-fringed mountains.
But Bali has a darker side, too, as it is home to the most horrific crimes against women.
Here’s a look at the 10 most shocking tourist spots in Indonesia.
Hatta island In Indonesia, Hatta is home, for the most part, to a Buddhist temple, but in the island nation, a small population of Muslims live in a semi-tolerant lifestyle that includes prostitution and drug use.
The island is the site of a brutal and often-violent mob rape by the Bali Boys gang in 2012, but locals have largely kept quiet about the attack.
Mangu, Indonesia’s most violent tourist spot There is a reputation for violent crime in Indonesia, but a recent survey showed that most of the people who reported it in the country are either victims or friends of victims of crime.
According to the Jakarta Post, Mangu is the most violent and dangerous tourist destination in Indonesia because of its proximity to the island of Bali.
There are also reports of rape and murder on the island, and a notorious street gang known as the Bikinis is also active there.
The gang is led by a man named Bikini, who is said to be involved in more than 30 murders.
Kalimantan In the heart of the province of Kalimanto, there is a bustling metropolis of palm trees and palm fronds.
The main street of Kalimpong, known for its nightclubs and gambling, is home of one of the most famous hotels in Indonesia and one of its most popular tourist destinations.
The most recent crime happened in January, when a gang of six men tried to rape and kill an 18-year-old woman in the middle of the street, which led to the killing of the men.
The woman was a friend of the victim’s parents, who was raped by the men and killed.
Bali island The city of Bamiyan is home for more than 20 million people.
The capital of the archipelago is a city with an estimated 1.5 million inhabitants, and Bali is one of Indonesia’s oldest cities.
While some parts of Bama are famous for its pristine beaches and nature reserves, the capital is often one of Bikini Island’s most dangerous tourist spots.
There have been reports of gang rapes and murders in Bamiayan, including the murder of a girl in 2014.
Banyang island In the southern province of Banyan, a few hours south of Jakarta, there are some of the worst crime scenes in the world.
In 2013, two men from Indonesia’s southern island province of Papua attacked and raped a 14-year old girl and her 15-year friend in the Banyam district of Bili.
The girl was also allegedly raped by three men.
Police later arrested the men, and the men were sentenced to between three and 12 years in prison.
Yogyakarta In the capital of Banda Aceh, there’s an average of more than 3,000 people living in a densely populated area known as Yogyaksang.
It is a place where the local government and many other businesses are located.
In January, a gang rape in a shopping center in Yogyagarta killed a 12-year girl and injured two others.
A local politician has accused the police of not taking the attack seriously enough.
Bintan, Indonesia The capital is home in Bintanan in the southern state of Sumatra, and it is the main tourist destination for many foreigners.
But a recent study showed that the crime rate in Banyans biggest city, Yogyapantan, is the highest in Indonesia’s largest province.
In 2012, the Jakarta Globe reported that Yogyaponan’s rape and homicide rate was one of five places in Indonesia where women’s safety is at risk.
Jambi, Indonesia Indonesia’s capital is the largest city in Indonesia with around 2.8 million people, and in Jambik, where tourists often visit for its beaches, crime is rampant.
In 2016, police said they arrested five men accused of committing crimes against minors and underage girls.
The women who were attacked were mostly between 16 and 18 years old.
Banda, Indonesia Many people call Banda home, but some say it is not safe to visit because of crime and violence.
In 2017, Banda residents were stunned to find that a young man, believed to be a suspect in the rape and death of an 11-year long-time neighbor, was living there, with no official address.
He was reportedly living in the house next door to a neighbor, who has been reported missing since.
Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan Many people in the
