Japan - Japanese arrivals declined a worrisome 44% month-on-month for October 2010 with 17,696 visitors.

People's Republic of China - The PRC sent 7.96% fewer visitors (17,820) in October 2010 than in the same month in last year (19,362). On a cumulative basis, PRC arrivals are largely flat, only 0.31% ahead of January-October 2009 totals.

Taiwan - Taiwanese visitors suffered a significant hit in October, declining month-on-month 20.08%. On an aggregate basis, Taiwanese arrivals have improved 6.43% through the end of October as compared to the same period in 2009.

Malaysia - Bali's near neighbor of Malaysia continues to turn in a stellar performance, driven primarily by cheap airfares. Month-on-month Malaysian arrivals for October 2010 totaled 13,023 – that's a whopping 54.7% improvement over October 2009. On a year-on-year basis, Malaysian arrivals are up 8.8% for January-October 2010 as compared to the same 10 month period last year.

The Netherlands - Dutch visitors are down month-on-month by 27.28% and up only 3.56% year-on-year at the end of October 2010.

U.S.A. - The troubled U.S. economy and air access issues saw U.S. arrivals perform negatively, down 11.04% for October 2010 as compared to October 2009. Cumulative arrivals through the end of October from the U.S.A. are down 5.24%.
