Results by Major Markets

Australia – Continues to be Bali’s biggest source of foreign arrivals. October 2011 arrivals ex Australia (75,050) represents a 20.9% increase over the same month last year. Year-on-year Australian arrivals are 24.52% ahead of 2010. Australian visitors now constitute a 28.81% market share of all foreign arrivals.

Japan – Once the undisputed leading source of foreign visitors to Bali, Japan has now slipped to third place after Australia and the PRC. Japan’s decline continues with October arrivals (14,064) declining 20.5% as compared to October 2010. Year-on-year the decline in Japanese visitors stands at 26.71%.

People’s Republic of China – Now the second largest source of Bali visitors, the PRC arrivals for October 2011 (19,571) are 9.8% ahead of the same month a year before. Year-to-date Mainland Chinese visitors are up 13.76% through the end of October 2011. Look for Chinese arrivals to flatten as that country's export-oriented economy begins to feel the impact of the U.S.A. and Europe’s faltering economies.

Taiwan – After a period of stagnation, Taiwan is on the rebound with arrivals to Bali in October 2011 (11,486) improving 27.9% over October 2010. On a cumulative basis through the end of October, Taiwanese arrivals are up 21.37%.

Malaysia – Malaysian arrivals have hit a plateau. October 2011 arrivals (13,116) are virtually on a par with arrivals for October 2010 (13,023). Year-on-year through the end of October Malaysian arrivals are up 13.14% as compared to 2010.

South Korea – South Korean arrivals are on the decline. October 2011 South Korean visitors totaled 11,055 – a number down 6.3% from the totals in October 2010. Year-on-year South Korean visitors have declined 2.08% through the end of October 2011.

France – French arrivals in October 2010 are up 4.06% at 10.591 visitors. Year-on-year French visitors have increased 4.95% during the first ten months of 2011.

Russia – Russian arrivals remain bright. October arrivals totaled 5,202 an improvement of 7.8% over October 2010. Russian arrivals year-on-year are up 14.11%,

The Netherlands – Dutch arrivals to Bali are ailing. October 2011 arrivals standing at 6,000 is virtually the same as October 2010 (5,977). Year-on-year arrivals from Holland are down 8.61%.

U.S.A. – Economic uncertainty at home is not deterring Americans from packing their bags and coming to Bali. October 2011 arrivals (7,043) are 14.1% ahead of the same month one year before. Year-on-year the picture is even brighter with U.S. arrivals through the end of October 2011 up 20.83%. Next question: Will Bali arrivals from the U.S. improve even more due to the “Obama effect” of the just completed U.S. presidential visit?

Germany – The European economy is in recession, making “flat” results from Germany arguably more good news than bad. German arrivals in October 2011 (9,380) are almost even with arrivals for October 2010 (9.314). Similarly, German arrivals year-on-year are equally lackluster, down 0.39%
