Shifting Fortunes in Southeast Asian Travel

Bali By the Numbers: Statistical Landscape of Bali Tourism Arrivals Changes in April as Troubles Brew in Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam


Foreign tourist arrivals to Bali in April 2014 totaled 274,838 – an increase of 16.49% over April 2014 when 235,027 foreign tourists came to Bali.

On a cumulative basis for the first four months of 2014, Bali welcomed 1,106,463 foreign tourists, a 14.90% improvement over the same period one-year before.

Extrapolating through the end of 2013 and assuming the 14.90 growth rate is maintained until the end of year Bali can look to achieving something in the order of 3.8 million foreign tourist arrivals.

Major Shifts April Arrivals

Australia –Australian arrivals to Bali remained strong in April. For the first four months of 2014, Australian arrivals hit 280,306 – a number 15.57% ahead of the same four- month period in 2013.

Look for Australian arrivals to get a boost from the coup d’état still underway in Thailand as Australian re-plan their Thai holidays to Indonesia.

At current rates of growth, Bali may end the year with just fewer than 1 million tourist arrivals from Australia.

Mainland China – PRC visitors to Bali remain especially robust at 191,433 visitors through the first four months of the year, increasing 49.86% over 2013 for the same period.

If the current rate of growth continues unabated, PRC arrivals to Bali will end the year at around 580,000.

Chinese visitors to Bali should increase as anti-Chinese riots in Vietnam, a distaste for Malaysia in the unresolved MH-370 disaster and political turmoil in Thailand should send greater numbers of Chinese to Indonesia.

Malaysia – Malaysian visitors to Bali have increased 15.18% to 64,873 for the period January-April 2014.

Japan – After a strong start to the year, Japanese visitors have slipped, down 8.39% for January-April 2014 at 59.815.

Singapore – Singapore arrivals are booming, perhaps as the Island Republic’s predominantly ethnic Chinese populace avoids Thailand and Vietnam.  Singapore visitors to Bali are up 49.53% at 52,385 for January-April 2014.

South Korea – South Korean arrivals have increased 10.14% during the first four months of the year with 44,778 arrivals.

United Kingdom – U.K. arrivals to Bali continue to develop nicely, up 9.81% to 36,279 for January-April 2014. Garuda will commence direct flights from London in September, which could boost numbers even further.

Taiwan – Taiwanese arrivals are now down 7.83% for the first four months of 2014 at 35,506.

U.S.A. – American arrivals are up 7.61% for January-April 2014 at 35,182.

France – French arrivals are up 8.72% for the first four months of 2014 at 32,042.

Germany – German arrivals have increased only 2.62% for the first four months of 2014 at 26,848.

Russia – Russian arrivals have suddenly decreased in April to only 125 visitors. This sudden downturn resulted in a 31.95% decrease in Russian arrivals for January-April 2014 at 24,206.

See the separate related article on Russian arrivals (link below).

India – India arrivals have now surpassed the Dutch market. 23,868 Indians came to Bali in the first four months of 2014 increasing 29.65%.

The Netherlands – Dutch visitors are up 11.64% for January-April 2014 at 20,824.

Bali’s spurt of growth in arrivals is driven primarily from the Asia-Pacific and ASEAN Regions.
