This May - the Start of Something Good!

Bali by the Numbers: May Figures Continue the Steady March into Record Territory.


(7/2/2007)

As reported in the last installment of Bali by the Numbers [See: May Arrivals – Higher and Higher] arrivals in May 2007 hit 128,693 establishing it as the best month of May on record – a full +26.45% ahead of the same month one year before (101,776). Moreover, on a cumulative basis, Bali is on the way to a record year for foreign tourist arrivals clocking 600,775 for the period January-May. Compared to the same 5 months in 2006 (442,992), 2007 arrivals are running +35.63 ahead of 2006.

This installment of Bali by the Numbers takes a closer look at the first 5 months of 2007 from the perspective of the following key source markets: Japan, Australia, Taiwan, South Korean, the Peoples Republic of China, ASEAN (as a whole), Malaysia, Singapore, the Americas, the U.K., Germany, France, the Netherlands and Russia.

Asia-Pacific Arrivals

Japan is again operating at near record levels achieved 7 years ago. January-May 2007 arrivals (129,283) regained lost ground in a dramatic way, improving +49.98% over the same period in 2006.

Australia picked up 56.34% in arrivals to Bali for January-May 2007 (65,651). Once down by more than 50%, Australian arrivals are gradually making up for lost ground, now only some -43% behind the record level of arrivals from that market in January-May 2004 (93,966).

Taiwan arrivals are up +5% over 2006 through the end of May, however, they still lag -20.7% behind arrivals from that market in 2003.

South Korean arrivals are operating in record territory, up +69.5% as compared for January-May 2006. Definitely qualifying to be classified as a new emerging market for Bali, South Korean visitors to Bali have increased at an average annual growth rate of 111% since 2000.

People's Republic of China Although plagued by a lack of direct flights to Bali, easier visa rules have seen this market grow +73.6% over January-May 2006.

ASEAN – Malaysia – Singapore

ASEAN The advent of a number of new low cost carriers operating in the region have allowed ASEAN arrivals to increase at an average 24% every year since 2000. Year on year for January-May, ASEAN arrivals increased +12.26% in 2007.

Malaysia Largely due to the phenomenal growth of Kuala Lumpur's Air Asia, Malaysian arrivals have clocked an average annual growth rate of 74.85% since 2000, increasing +49.4% year-on-year for January-May 2007.

Singapore arrivals are up +12.26% for January-May 2007 arrivals over just one year before. Since 2000, Singapore arrivals to Bali have increased at an annual average rate of 24%.

United Kingdom arrivals were up +4.48% for January-May 2007 but have some distance to go as current arrivals still lag some -40% behind "better days" of just a few year back.

•`Germany improved +4.3% year on year through the end of May, slowly making up for lost ground.

France is operating at record levels, doubling arrivals from the January-May performance of 2003.
