Our October Runneth Over

Bali by the Numbers: October 2004 Direct Foreign Arrivals Near-Record Levels.

(1/8/2005) Bali Arrival StatisticsForeign direct arrivals via Bali's Ngurah Rai International Airport for October 2004 were only 1.18% behind the October 2000's performance the highest October in Bali's history for foreign tourist arrivals. In all, 128,399 foreign visitors passed through Bali's airport in October, an improvement of 31.8% for the same month one year ago.

Overall arrivals covering the first 10 months of the year totaled 1,222,113 setting a new record in foreign direct arrivals and besting by 1.8% the 1,200,404 visitors recorded for January-October 2000.

Bali's numerical success in arrivals, however, has been purchased at a cost in quality of visitors. A dramatic shift from high-spending, long-staying European and American visitors to less lucrative regional tourists has taken place over the past three years. As a result, many hotels and tourist attractions dependent of total guest nights spent by tourists to Bali continue to suffer.

A month by month comparison and accompanying graphic for monthly arrivals January October 1999-2004 is available for complimentary download via the link provided.

Coming in the next installment of Bali by the Numbers will provide detailed breakdowns of arrivals by nationality.
