In balidiscovery.com's continuing look at foreign tourist arrivals for 2006, this week's installment of Bali by the Numbers examines arrivals from the Americas covering the seven-year period 2000-2006.
The graphics presented show:
▪ Total arrivals ex-The Americas (North, South and Central America) are down -37.26% from the levels recorded 7 years ago. The important U.S. market is down -40.67% with its decline dating from the 9-11 attacks in 2001 and worsening in 2002 with the subsequent invasion of Afghanistan and Bali bombing of October in that year.
▪ The fallout in business ex-The Americas was more severe and sustained following the October 2002 terror attack than was the case following the October 2005 attack. This may reflect some degree of acclimatization to the realities of daily life during the on-going world wide "war on terror."
▪ If the Americas stay true-to-pattern, expect a slow but gradual growth in arrival numbers throughout 2007.Related Stories – Bali by the Numbers
