    People on the Indonesian island of Bali are spending their sixth day on the highest possible volcano alert, as Mount Agung threatens to erupt.

    The volcano is spurting smoke and ash, and the intensity of tremors is increasing, according to seismologists.

    More than 75,0000 people have been evacuated from a 12km exclusion zone. There are also major concerns about the effect on tourism, Bali's largest and most lucrative industry.

    Al Jazeera's Step Vaessen reports from one of Bali's main resorts.
