Bali's Very Busy Airport in September

Bali by the Numbers: 2004 Figures Through September Near Record Highs. Some Softening in Arrivals Seen in August and September.

(10/25/2004) Bali Arrival StatisticsDirect foreign arrivals in Bali during the month of September 2004 totaled 141,952, just 5.83% behind the best-ever September performance set in 2002 (150,747).

Year-to-date tourism arrivals have clocked in at 1,093,714 - only 1.36% behind the highest ranking January-September performance, also set in 2002 (1,109,854).

Although 2004 arrival figures are strong, there are several points worthy of further consideration:

Current figures are strong in the aggregate but do not reflect the very drastic drop in quality of tourists, as measured by average daily spends and average length of stay. Bali's most recent spurt of growth has been sourced to visitors from the Asia-Pacific region, while the higher-spending, longer-staying Europeans and Americans are yet to return to former levels.

A closer examination of 2004 versus 2002, a year with similarly strong arrival numbers for January September, may suggest a "softening" of the market place is currently underway. Comparing the two years shows August arrivals dropped 2.99% while September's visitors were down 5.83%.

Coming editions of "Bali by the Numbers" will be taking a closer look at arrival statistics, providing detailed breakdowns by country of residence.
