Bali's May 2009 Arrivals Headed for a Record Year

Bali by the Numbers: Bali On Track to Surpass 2 Million Visitors in 2009.

(7/13/2009) Total foreign tourist arrivals to Bali for May 2009 totalled 181,963 - an increase of 13.8% over May 2009, when 159,877 visitors came to the island.

On a cumulative basis for January-May, total arrivals hit 827,044, up 9.35% from the same period in the previous year. If Bali can sustain the current 9.35% growth rate through the end of 2009, this will translate into 2.15 million visitors and the first time ever that Bali's arrivals penetrated the 2 million mark.

Key Markets

Japan and Australia continue to be the two main source markets for Bali tourism, representing on a combined basis a 32.54% market share of all arrivals. 2009 has seen the historical displacement of Japan from the number one ranking, a position now held by Australia.

In years past, Taiwan and South Korea rounded out the top-four source markets for Bali. However, changing financial fortunes and the advent of new low-cost air services have seen the number three and four positions taken over by the People's Republic of China and Malaysia, respectively.

Within the European market, the strongest performances are being turned in, in order of importance, by France, the United Kingdom, Russia and Germany.
