Strong Start to 2007

Bali by the Numbers: January 2007 Foreign Arrivals to Bali Set New Records.


Foreign arrivals to Bali for January 2007 hit 109,504 – the best January on record; fuelling hopes that the remainder of the year will see Bali regain much of the momentum lost over the past decade.

January improved +7.6% over the same month in 2005 (101,776) and ended slightly ahead of January 2001 (108,857) the previous record holder as "best January" for Bali tourism.

Bali's Top Four Markets

Further cause for optimism, suggesting that Bali's recovery is in full swing, can be found in the performance of the top two markets of Japan and Australia. Japan's arrivals were up +36.3% in January 2007 versus January 2006, operating at levels, that if sustained, demonstrate a near complete recovery from that market.

The long-troubled Australian market made important strides forward in January hitting 12,716 – improving 35% over January 2006. While it's becoming problematic to ascertain "normal" levels for the Australian visitor levels, the latest January arrivals are only 35% less that the excellent performance of January 2005 (19,840). By extrapolation, these figures encourage the view that Australian arrivals to Bali have turned the corner on the road to recovery – operating at levels considerably improved over the gap of more than -50% experienced for most of 2006.

Similarly, South Korea arrivals in January 2007 (11,045) improved +30.47% over the same month in 2006 managing to set a new all-time month-to-month record for January.

Worthing of further investigation and the cause of some concern, Taiwanese arrivals dipped in January 2007, decreasing -35.49% against 2006.
