(5/14/2005)

The authoritative Indonesian Digest published in Jakarta by Ibu Wuryastuti Sunario of TBSC-Strategic Communication in its May 14,2005, edition reports:

"Antara reports that for the first time in five years the number of visitors from Korea has overtaken the Taiwanese, to take third position with 10,072 tourists to Bali during April 2005. This compares to 7,804 tourists from Taiwan in the same month. It is a sharp drop from the normal 16,000 – 18,000 Taiwanese tourists that usually visit Bali per month, said Himron, Official at the Immigration Office of the Ngurah Rai Airport in Bali, giving no further explanations for the drop."

"Japanese still hold the number one position with 23,314 visitors, followed by Australia at second place with 20,955 tourists, (third Korea and fourth Taiwan), fifth are Germans with 7,005 arrivals, followed by Malaysia (6,528), Great Britain (6,348), France (4,096), and the Netherlands (3,683)."

"Total direct arrivals to Bali in April 2005 were 116,254, an increase of 4.7% compared to the same month last year, which registered 111,022 direct foreign visitors to the resort island."

Where are the Taiwanese?

Worthy of further investigation by Bali tourism officials are the reasons for the sudden drop in Taiwanese visitors to Bali. During the first four months of 2005 only 35,203 Taiwanese direct arrivals were recorded to Bali, down 35.58% from the 54,648 Taiwanese who came to Bali in the same four months of 2004.
