Bali Officials Predicting 15% increase in foreign arrivals in 2013

The total number of foreign tourists “officially” expected by the province of Bali is officially predicted to increase 15% - despite more modest predictions of only 10% being put forth by members of the private sector.

The 15% increase is argued as achievable by its proponents because of a number of important international meetings scheduled to be held on the Island next year, including the APEC Summit of Asian-Pacific leaders that will converge on Bali in October 2013.

As reported by, the chairman of the Bali chapter of the Indonesian Hotel and Restaurant Association (PHRI-Bali), Oka Artha Ardhana Sukawati (Cok Ace), said other factors supporting the 15% rate of growth were improvements in Bali’s infrastructure that will become operational in 2013.

At the same time, Cok Ace cautioned against unbridled optimism on tourism arrivals saying that the experience of the past ten years has shown that larger visitor totals does not automatically translate into higher income, as visitors now stay in Bali for less than 4 days.

“Tourist visitors to Bali before 2002 stayed for longer than 14 days, but now stay for between 5 and 4 days. So, if you look only at arrivals, that is no guarantee that more foreign exchange revenues will grow because of large arrival numbers. People who stay for a short time have fewer transactions of a lesser value (than those who stay longer),” explained the PHRI-Bali chairman.
