Bali by the Numbers: Record Breaking Arrivals for July Brings Bali to the Brink of 1 Million Visitors.


As reported on [See: Bali's July Arrivals Up 34.9%], 148,112 total foreign arrivals in July 2007 made for the best July on record for Bali tourism.

1.7 Million Arrivals to Bali for 2007?

On a year-to-date cumulative basis, the total January-July visitor total of 910,567 represents the best 7-month start to any year in the history of Bali tourism and virtually assured the critical 1 million mark would be surpassed in August. If bird flu, travel warnings and aviation advisories do not have an overly deleterious effect on the pace of arrivals and Bali maintains its current +34.98% improvement over 2006's performance through the end of the year, that will translate into total foreign arrivals approaching 1.7 million for 2007.

ASEAN with a Focus on Malaysia & Singapore

ASEAN - As far as Bali is concerned, inter-ASEAN travel is booming, improving +36.6% over 2006 for the period January-July 2007.

Malaysia - Leading the ASEAN visitors' charge is Malaysia which improved +51.2% for the first seven months of 2007.

Singapore - With a more modest YTD improvement of only +4.3% from the Singapore market there may be indications that this market has achieved a strong and somewhat "matured" plateau.
