A Review by Major Markets

• Australia - Australian visitors remain the number one source of foreign visitors to Bali. Month-on-month Australian arrivals increased 15.35% with 54,483 visitors from "down under" passing through Bali's airport in November. Although a strong result, November's arrivals may signal the beginning of a gradual softening in Australian arrivals when compared to cumulative arrivals January – November, which were up 46.72% on a year-on-year basis.

• Japan - once the top source of Bali visitors, the Japanese now lag a distant number two behind the Australians. A very modest recovery, however, may be underway ex-Japan with November 2010 arrivals hitting 16,486 a decline of only 13.32% when compared to the same month in 2009. This decline is substantially better than the cumulative year-on-year decline in Japanese tourists of 23.33% - planting a seed of optimism that the Japanese market may be making a slow rebound.

• People's Republic of China - Once cited to be the next big market for Bali, the PRC appears stuck. November 2010 arrivals from China declined 13.89% (11,007) as compared to November 2009. Year-on-year for January-November PRC arrivals are down 0.66%. If there's a boom coming in PRC arrivals the consensus remains that it's yet to happen.

• Taiwan - Taiwanese arrivals improved 1.81% month-on-month in November 2010 with 7,251 visitors. On a cumulative basis, Taiwanese visitors are up 6.13% through end November.

• Malaysia - Malaysian visitors continue to boom to Bali increasing month-on-month an impressive 65.15% with 17,511 visitors. For January-November on a cumulative basis Malaysian arrivals are up 13.86%.

• South Korea - South Korean visitors for the month of November 2010 totaled 10.679 – an improvement of only 1% over November 2009. This modest performance is apace with January-November arrivals with are up only 1.01% year-on-year when compared with 2009.

• United Kingdom - November 2010 U.K. arrivals softened slightly, down 1.69% month-on-month at 6,698 visitors. The cumulative arrival figures ex the U.K. to Bali for January – November 2010 are up 13.41%.

• France - French arrivals for November 2010 were up 4.85% month-on-month, figures in keeping with the year-on-year improved ex-France of 4.27%.

• Russia - Russian arrivals surged in November, improving 41% month-on-month with 7,210 Russian visitors. On a cumulative basis, arrivals through the end of November from Russia are up 8.39%.

• Singapore - Singapore arrivals improved month-on-month by an astounding 106% in November totaling 10,815%. On a cumulative basis, Singapore arrivals are up 69.41% January-November.

• The Netherlands - Dutch visitors declined month-on-month by 4.15% in November with 4,108 visitors. On a cumulative basis, Dutch visitors are up 3.16% for January-November 2010.

• U.S.A. - The America's staged a modest comeback in November 2010, improving 13.16% month-on-month (5,623). For the year 2010 through end November, however, U.S.A. arrivals are down 2.88%.

• Germany - The German market to Bali remains very strong, up 24.71% month-on-month at 5,956 visitors for November 2010. Year on year German arrivals are up a strong 13.63%.
