Statistics compiled by indicate that – barring any major event to change current healthy upward trend in world travel, Bali's direct foreign arrivals for 2004 are lining up to set all time records.

Overall arrivals January – September 2004 totaled 1,093,879 – breaking the important psychological barrier of one million and turning in a year-to-date performances lagging only slightly behind corresponding figures set in 2001 and 2002.

Asia Pacific – The Source of Bali's Good Fortune

Asia-Pacific arrivals are the motor behind the current surge in Bali's arrival numbers. The 4 top source markets for Bali all hail from the Asia-Pacific – Japan, Australia, Taiwan and South Korea – who, on a combined basis, represent 59.66% of all foreign arrivals to the island.

Asia-Pacific arrivals were up 68.62% at the end of Q3 led by Japan with nearly a quarter million visitors (244,604), but still lagging behind Japanese arrivals for 2001 and 2002. Australian visitors to Bali set all-time records at 203,609 – increasing 110.42% from just a year ago. Taiwan arrivals increased a more modest 9.44% (147,768), cementing that market's steady upward trend of growth over recent years. Meanwhile, South Korea has emerged as a new player on the scene, recording 57,196 arrivals in 2004 – 104.37% more than just one year before.

ASEAN – Malaysia's The Best

ASEAN arrivals are up 30.21% year to date with Malaysia leading the charge, aided by new discount air connections. Malaysian arrivals totals for January-September stood at 40,227 – a 67.54% increase from 2003.

The Americas

The U.S.A. improved its arrivals to Bali by 46.95% during the first three quarters of 2004 with 37,818 arrivals – a total still 36.67% behind the same period in 2001.

European Arrivals Not Back Yet

Overall, European arrivals improved 25.63% for the first three quarters of 2004 as compared to just a year earlier. However, like the America's, Europe's numbers have failed to regain past glory, lagging 30.22% behind arrivals recorded in 2002.

Hardest hit among European arrivals remain the U.K. and Italian markets, followed by the Dutch, French and German.
