New Emerging Markets to Bali

Bali by the Numbers: Growing Source Markets for Bali Tourism to Watch in 2007.


In the last in a series of statistical reviews of Bali's foreign arrivals in 2006, Bali by the Numbers looks at four new emerging markets to Bali.

New Medium-Sized Markets to Bali

Over the past seven years Bali has seen the following four new medium-sized inbound markets emerge.

Malaysia - in the seven years from 2000 through 2006, Malaysian arrivals have increased +347.5%, hitting 72.724 in 2006. The majority of this growth in visitors ex-Malaysia can be traced to 2004 and the introduction of budget fares with Air Asia in that year.

People's Republic of China - Mainland Chinese arrivals to Bali hit 42,687 in 2006, exhibiting an amazing growth rate from a near-zero base in 2000. Expect numbers from the PRC to grow even more over the coming years due to the easing of visa requirements for Chinese visitors and the promise of direct flights to Bali.

Singapore - Singapore arrivals hit 40,664 in 2006, equal to +134.1% in growth from arrivals in 2000 (17,370).

Russia - Limited to mostly charter flight in years past, arrivals from Russia have risen +250% since 2001 due to the recent introduction of regular flights by Singapore Airlines from Moscow and the granting of visa-on-arrival for Russian nationals, whose total arrivals reached 23,649 in 2006.

New Small-Sized Markets to Bali

Four smaller-sized, but still significant, inbound markets to Bali have also emerged over the first seven years of the new millennium.

India - Due to recent changes in the visa policy, India visitors to Bali jumped +88.34% in the single year from 2005 (6,792) to 2006 (12,792).

Hong Kong - Hong Kong residents have discovered Bali as a holiday destination growing from 773 visitors in 2000 to 9,550 in 2006 an increase of +1,134.45%.

Timor Leste - The birth of the world's newest country in East Timor contributed a not unsubstantial 5,092 visitors in 2006.

South Africa - South African visitors reached 4,210 in 2006, growing from an almost non-existent base in 2002. Excellent connections to Bali from South Africa via Singapore Airlines and Malaysian Airlines portend that numbers will continue to grow from S. Africa.
