Arrival Report Card for the First Semester of 2006

Bali by the Numbers: A Market-by-Market Look at Arrivals in the First Half of 2006.


In its continuing analysis of arrival figures for Bali, compares arrivals for the first six months of each year 2000-2006.

Total Arrivals to Bali

Total arrivals January-June 2006 totaled 552,573. This total is -19.79% less than arrivals during the same period in 2005, but a full +44.12% ahead of arrivals for January-June 2003, the previous year also impacted by a terrorist attack.

Japanese Arrivals

Traditionally Bali's largest single source of foreign visitors, Japanese arrivals for the first six months of 2006 were 107,040. This figure is down -31.25 from 2005, but +60.82 more than the same period in 2003.

Australian Arrivals

Australia has been unseated from its position as the second largest single source of foreign arrivals by Taiwan. Badly affected by continuing political woes, recent high-profile drug convictions, and the loss of Air Paradise - Australian arrivals during the first six months of 2006 from Australia were 56,798, down a staggering -57.25% from the same period one year before. The 2006 arrival figure is only +9.66% ahead of the same period in 2003 following the previous Bali bombing.

Taiwanese Arrivals

Taiwanese arrivals to Bali continue to amaze and please, now ranking as the second single largest source of arrivals to the Island. At 69,788 for the period January-June 2006, Taiwanese arrivals are +14.31% ahead of the same period in 2005 when Taiwanese were selecting to stay at home in the wake of the 2004 North Sumatra tsunami.

South Korean Arrivals

South Korean is holding on to its position as the fourth most important source of arrivals to Bali, totaling 37,083 visitors for the first half of 2006. 2006 arrivals from South Korea are lagging -20.82% behind the same period in 2005, but are an impressive 151% ahead of arrivals January-June 2003.

European Arrivals

At 149,893 arrivals for January-June 2006, European arrivals are looking fairly resilient. Only -9.96% behind arrivals for the same period in 2005, Europeans visitors are still well ahead of arrivals in the same periods in 2003 and 2004.

Arrivals from the Americas

32,870 visitors from North and South America came to Bali in January-June 2006, a figure -25.82% behind the first semester of 2005, but still +23.70% ahead of the same post-bombing period in 2003.
