Beritabali.com reports that the Provincial Tourism Office for Bali has set a target of 2.3 million foreign tourists to the island for 2010. This number is higher than the 2.2 million achieved in 2009 and is a substantial improvement over the 1.8 million recorded in 2008.
The head of the Bali Tourism Office, Ida Bagus Subhisku, told the press on January 25, 2009, that he is optimistic the 2010 target can be achieved when seen from the current trends of increasing arrivals to Bali. Early figures from Bali's airport are showing around 6,220 foreign tourist arrivals per day in January 2010 as compared to 4,000 daily arrivals for the same month in 2009. Also serving to buoy his optimism are several important international conventions slated to be held on the island in 2010.
Subhisku also boasted that some 40 cruise ships are expected to visit Bali in 2010 carry a total of 45,000 visitors.
