A record-breaking total of 117,149 direct foreign arrivals for March 2005 closed one of Bali's the best first quarters of tourism arrivals.

Total foreign arrivals for the first three months of 2005 totaled 329,718 - that's 14.8% ahead of the same period just one year ago, a year that managed to close as a record-setter with slightly more than 1.46 million tourists for Bali.

The Numbers at a Glance

Some of the highlights demonstrated by Bali's performance in the first quarter of 2005:

• March 2005 arrivals at 117,149 were 17.35% higher than arrivals for March 2004 (99,826).

• Bali's top four markets continue to be Japan, Australia, Taiwan and South Korea whose combined production of tourist visitors represent 54% of all Bali arrivals.

• Japanese arrivals for March totaled 25,437 – a 21.71% share of the total inbound market, but still 22.4% down from Japanese arrivals for March 2000 and 8.53% down from Japanese arrivals for March 2001.

• Australia's March 2005 arrival numbers scored all-time highs at 21,483, that's 3.53% more than the same month one year before.

• Taiwan, while holding onto its 3rd ranking as a producer of tourists for Bali at 9.249 visitors in March 2005, is a cause for some legitimate concern, dropping 28% from March in 2004 and presenting its worst March arrival performance in more than 6 years.

• South Korean continues to gain strength tallying 7,083 visitors, up a dramatic 78% from March just one year ago.

• The Americas – including U.S.A., Canada and South America - staged a dramatic comeback in March with 9,010 arrivals, increasing 61.7% from the same month in 2004, but still lagging behind numbers achieve in March 2000 and 2001.

• Similarly, Europe's 28,923 arrivals in March 2003 was a 47% improvement from one year ago, but still far behind European arrivals of just 3-4 years ago.
