The Bali Tourism Authority (BTA) has announced its intention to begin an intensive program of domestic tourism promotion at major population centers across the Nation in order to increase tourism flows to Bali by both domestic travelers and the many expatriate foreign workers living Indonesia in areas such as Jakarta, Bandung, Surabaya, Kalimantan and Bantam.
While accurate figures measuring the size of Bali’s domestic market are hard to come by, many estimate that domestic arrivals represent 50-60% of all visitors to the Island.
According to Mr. Gde Nurjaya, Chief of the BTA, plans are underway Bali to make a coordinated presence at the Gebyar Wisata Nusantara show to be held in Jakarta May 28, 2006; Majapahit Travel Fair in Surabaya on May 12, 2006; and a May road show to Jakarta, West Java, Kalimantan and Batam.
