Bali Arrivals by the Numbers's Statistical Update Shows Devastating Effects of October Bombing.


StatisticsInterim figures just obtained by show November arrivals to Bali crashed to only 31,377 direct foreign arrivals, a figure down 57% from November of 2001. Bearing in mind the lingering effects of 9-11 on 2001's figures for November and averaging November arrivals for the 3 years 1999-2001 (90,238), the November 2002 arrival totals represents a massive 65% drop in business from the average for that month.

What the Figures Show has prepared a detailed analysis of month by month arrival figures for 1999 through November 2002, including a copyrighted graphic representation available as a free download via the link provided at the end of this story.

Those figures indicate the following:

• Both the September 11, 2001, terror attack on the U.S.A. and the October 12, 2002, bombing of a Bali night spot caused a sudden downturn in Bali's foreign arrivals.

• The 2002 downturn in Bali's tourism business was much more acute, deeper, and may in fact prove to be more prolonged than the slump following the U.S. attack of one year earlier.

• The 2001 slump "bottomed out" in November of that year with figures improving steadily thereafter until they actually managed to outpace the early 2001 arrivals in May of 2002.

• The recovery from the 2001 U.S.A. terror attacks was complete and total dating from May of 2002, with May-September logging in record high arrival totals in each of those months.

Stay Tuned

Has Bali hit the bottom of the trough with November's arrival figures? When will the upward return of foreign arrivals commence? Which source countries have been most affected? The figures tell the real story: Stay bookmarked to for future reports on Bali Arrivals by the Numbers.
