March arrival figures fuel hope that Australian arrivals are on the mend coming in at 13,624 - a full 60% better than March 2006 (8,518) and only -36.6% behind the record March of 2005 when 21,483 Australians visited Bali.
Comparing 2004 to 2006, however, suggests that the recovery in the first full-year following a terrorist attack is less robust in 2007 than was the case in 2004. Lingering problems connected with recent convictions of Australian drug traffickers and the loss of airline capacity may explain the slower than desired recovery of the Australian market.

Japanese arrivals for March 2007 hit 30,183 Ė a number only slightly behind the record performance of March 2000 when 32,770 Japanese came to Bali.
By any standard, Japanese numbers appear to be in full recovery.
