Bali Better by Halves

Bali by the Numbers: January – June 2007 Arrivals the Strongest First-Half Ever in Bali Tourism.


Bali ended the first six months of 2007 with 745,494 foreign arrivals, a +35% improvement over the previous year, making the first semester of 2007 the strongest start ever for the island's tourism industry. Previously, that record was held by the year 2001 when 680,881 foreign visitors came to Bali in the January-June period; the current year surpassed that record by +9.6%.

Bali's Top 5 Markets and China

• Japanese arrivals for January-June 2007 (158,881) improved +48.43% over 2006 and came in only -5.6% behind the best first-half-year recorded for Japanese visitors when 168,392 came to Bali in 2000.

• Australian arrivals for the first-half of 2007 also improved, up +51.56% for the year. While Australian arrivals were trending into positive territory, current arrivals still lag some -34.2% behind 2005 when 130,875 Australian came to Bali during the January-June period.

• Taiwanese arrivals improved +3.2% during the first half of 2007. Suggesting there's stillroom for improvement is the fact that the current year is still -25.95% behind Taiwan's best first-half recorded in 2002 (97,329).

• 2007 set a dynamic new pace for South Korean arrivals improving +71.25% over the previous year – making 2007 the best-first-half-ever in Bali for arrivals from that market.

• 2007 also saw visitors from mainland China move into major-market-segment-territory, improving +89.92% over the previous year.

ASEAN arrivals improved +34.9% for the first six months of 2007 underlining the growing role played by low-cost regional airlines in Bali's arrival totals. Within the ASEAN market, Malaysia and Singapore were star performers improving +49% and +6%, respectively, for the first six months of 2007.

The Americas and Key European Markets

• While arrivals from the Americas, comprised of visitors from all of North and South America, grew +18.14% for January-June 2007, those numbers still lagged -31.94% behind totals from this market achieved in 2001 (57,053).

• Similarly, U.K. arrivals improved +6.7% for the first-half of 2007, but still need to play a game of major catch-up to perform at levels achieved in 2001. The current year's arrivals for January-June are -47.08% behind the 55,933 U.K. visitors who came to Bali in the first semester of 2001.

• German arrivals for January-June improved +5.2% for 2007. But, there's still a long road to travel before German arrivals begin to match performance levels in 2001; current first semester levels are -28.67% behind 2001 (41,150).

• French arrival are hitting record-territory, improving +12.1% in the first half of 2007.

• Equally impressive is the picture painted by The Netherlands, which turned in the "best ever" first-half-year, improving +41.1% over the same period in 2006.

• Meanwhile, Russia has now firmly established itself as a "new player" in Bali tourism, recording 18,473 visitors during the first half of 2007; rising dramatically from just 7 years before when Russian visitors to Bali were at totals "near to nothing."
