Domestic Tourism is Back and Booming!

Bali News:

Indonesian domestic tourism, still in the doldrums last year as a result of lingering political and economic woes, is apparently back and booming.

Aided by brightening economic horizons generally, a strengthening rupiah, and extended school holidays, Indonesians are flocking in substantial numbers to Bali as evidenced by full domestic flights to major tourist destinations and the corresponding full hotel rooms in resort properties offering special discounted rates to the domestic market.

Fully Booked Domestic Flights

Officials at Bali's Ngurah Rai Airport report that domestic flights operating between Jakarta and Surabaya to Denpasar (Bali) have been fully booked over the past month. Despite supplementing existing flight schedules with additional holiday flights, long waiting lists were in operation on many flights to and from the island.

Garuda Indonesia operates 6 daily flights from Jakarta and 2 daily frequencies from Surabaya. The Garuda subsidiary citylink flies on a daily basis from Surabaya, the capital of East Java. Merpati Nusantara flies once daily from Jakarta and twice each day from Surabaya. Meanwhile, Bouraq Airlines flies from Surabaya three times a day.

All carriers were reporting 100% loads, expected to begin to ease from July 15 when local school holidays come to an end.

Hotels in Yogyakarta and Bali Enjoying the Influx

After an extended drought in tourism visitors, hotels in the Central Javanese capital of Yogyakarta reported "no vacancies" at many properties during the height of the current domestic tourist boom.

Local tourist objects in Yogyakarta logged much higher than normal visitor numbers. The Kebun Binatang Gembira Loka, Yogyakarta's Zoo, counted daily visitor numbers of between 10 - 15,000 - an increase from normal daily numbers of around 500.

Similarly, many hotels along the Tuban, Kuta, Legian hotel corridor in Bali were running full during the school holiday period, making up for the current shortfall in Australian and Japanese visitors to Bali.

Busses carrying domestic groups of travelers and out of province license plates have been very much in evidence in Bali over the current school holiday period.
