Bali Arrivals by Major Markets

Arrivals across the top 15 major markets for Bali, all source countries are demonstrating fairly strong growth with the notable exception of Australia that, although still the predominate source of visitors, has gone stagnant with arrival figures virtually flat.

Having said that, Australia still holds a 25.31% market share of all foreign arrivals, far ahead of the second largest source market of Mainland China with only a 12.31% market share.

Among the top 15 foreign sources of visitors strongest growth was recorded by:
  • India is now ranked 14th as a source of Bali tourists with numbers year-to-date that are 43.34% ahead of last year's performance.
  • Taiwan has recovered lost ground over the past five years and turned in results that were 35.56% ahead of 2012 through the end of November 2012. Taiwan is now the six most important source of visitors, up from 9th place in 2012.
  • Mainland China is the 2nd largest source of foreign visitors to Bali, a position it has held since 2011 when it nudged Japan out of the #2 position. Chinese visitors year-year-on year at the end of November are 25.10% ahead of 2012
  • France - the 7th largest source market - grew 18.35% January-November 2013. France has moved up from the 8th ranking it held last year.
  • German arrivals are also at al all time high to Bali. The 94,244 German tourists who came to Bali in the first eleven months of 2013 represented an increase of 17.31% year-on-year. German is now ranked 11th as a source market for Bali, unchanged in ranking since 2012.
  • Other markets demonstrating double-digit growth through the end of November were: the Netherlands (15.97%) and Singapore (15.10%).
  • Japan - now ranked at 3rd place among source markets for Bali visitors, grew 10.62% through the end of November 2013. With a total of 192,391 visitors year-to-date, Japan's recovery in terms of arrival to Bali continues, reversing a trend of declining numbers over recent years, but still far short of more than 300,000 Japanese visitors recorded through the end of November in 2008 and 2009.
