Arrivals by Major Markets

Australia – after years of month-by-month increases in arrivals, Australia visitors to Bali declined in September 2012, down 1.46% with 73,951 Australian visitors. On a cumulative basis, Australia visitors are up 3.85% through the end of Q3 2012.

Peoples Republic of China – Mainland Chinese arrivals also declined slightly in September by 0.5% with 21,076 arrivals.

For the first nine months of 2012, PRC arrivals stand at 235,089 - an increase of 31.17% from one year before.

Japan –While Japanese arrivals fell month-on-month by 3.3%, there still appears to be a slow recovery underway with the Japanese market as the rapid free-fall of declining Japanese visitors has come to a halt. Within this context, cumulative Japanese arrivals of 140,606 at the end of September that are down only 1.45% represents hopeful news and suggests Japanese arrivals may close "even" by the end of the year.

Malaysia – Malaysian arrivals continue to perform steadily, up 1.17 (13,546) for the month of September and up 6.48% year-to-date at the end of Q3.

South Korean – South Korean travel to Bali was down 6.5% in September (8,678). Similarly, South Korean visitors for the first nine months of 2012 are down 2.31%.

United Kingdom – Despite all the grim economic news fro Europe, the U.K. market is putting in a stellar performance in terms of arrivals to Bali. September U.K. arrivals were up 9.9% month-on-month at 11,293 visitors.

U.K. Visitors at the end of Q3 2012 were up 6.3% from the United Kingdom.

France – France bounced back in September with 9,935 visitors - an increase of 7.19% over September 2011.

On a aggregate basis, French visitors year-on-year are down 4.98% through the end of September 2012.

Taiwan – Taiwan arrivals to Bali are ailing. Month-on-month arrivals from Taiwan for September declined 29.3% at 8,332 visitors.

Year-on-year through the end of September Taiwanese arrivals are down 9.58%.

U.S.A. – Visitors from the U.S. took an unexpected downturn in September 2012 declining 9.58% to 6,533.

Year-to-date through the end of September U.S. arrivals to Bali up 5.43% totaling 67.716.

Germany – Also contradicting the dismal economic news from Europe as a whole, German arrivals to Bali in September totaled 11,247 – an increase of 9.8% when compared to the same month in 2011. On a cumulative basis through the end of Q3, German arrivals are up 1.16%.
