A May Pause on Road to Arrival Totals' Recovery

Bali by the Numbers: May Arrival Numbers Seem to Stall as Bali Seeks Recovery.


Total foreign arrivals to Bali in May 2006 totaled 101,776, a figure that lagged -12.72% behind 116,615 near-record number of arrivals in the same month one year before. Those hoping to see arrival numbers notch another month of improving totals in May were no doubt disappointed; May arrivals slipped statistically as compared to April when month-on-month arrivals were down only -10.65%.

Some Cause for Cheer

As shown on, when arrivals for the period of October – May 2002-2003 and October-May 2005-2006 are juxtaposed, Bali arrivals are both qualitatively and quantitatively much better following the bombing attack of 2005 than was the case after the first bombing in 2002. This is demonstrated by the fact that while May 2006 arrivals were down -12.72% from the same month the previous year, May 2003 arrivals were down a staggering -59.87% from the totals recorded in May 2002. Quantitatively, May 2005's arrival total (101,776) were a full +112.66% ahead of the totals for the post-bombing May of 2003 (47,858).

Australia in the Doldrums

The next installment of Bali by the Numbers will take a look at the performance of key markets through the end of May 2006, including the performance of the Island’s top 4 inbound source markets, namely:

• Japan's steady month by month improvement, down only -21.54`% in May 2005.

• Australia's worsening arrivals, slumping further to -58.40% month-on-month for May 2006.

• Taiwan's continuing to sustain its pattern of buoyant performance, improving +45.87 month-on-month in May 2006.

• South Korea's turnaround performance in May, chalking up a +11.31 performance over May 2005.

Just some of the market segments to be reviewed in the next installment of Bali by the Numbers.
