Preliminary foreign tourist arrivals figures to Bali for March 2007 of 120,673 indicate that Bali arrivals are booming at record levels:Click to Enlarge
• March 2007 foreign arrivals at 120,673 are +43.47% ahead of March 2006 figures (84,109).
• Similarly, quarter on quarter arrivals show a +47.48% improvement for 2007 (348,452) versus 2006 (236,260).
• While the dramatic improvement in just one year is largely due to the depressed condition of Q1 2006 following the October 2005 terrorist attack, the Q1 2007 total of 348,452 foreign visitors nonetheless represents a new record in Bali arrivals.
Future installments of Bali by the Numbers will look at where the visitors comprising these new record numbers came from and why larger numbers of current arrivals may still equate into fewer hotel room nights than lower arrivals numbers managed to produce just a few years back.
