Marching to a Different Drummer

Bali by the Numbers: Bali Foreign Tourist Arrivals Q1 2013 Continue to Slow.

(5/4/2013) Bali Foreign Arrivals ending March 2013 were only 3.58% above Q1 2012 demonstrating, once again, that after years of steady and dramatic growth, Bali arrivals are beginning to level off.

March 2013 arrivals totaled 245,311 – 7.8% more than the 227,475 foreign tourists who visited in March 2012.

If the current 3.58% growth rate holds through the end of the year, total arrivals for Bali will end the year at something less than 3 million foreign arrivals.
