The Jakarta Post reports that many people responding to a survey carried out among tourist visitors show visitors to the Island come with great expectations and, once here, state a declared intention to visit Bali again.
4.91% more foreign tourists visited Bali in 2012 than did in 2011.
Asian Pacific visitors dominated Bali arrivals at 59.02%. Based on the further assumption that Indonesian travelers now represent 55% of all Bali visitors, this means more than 90% of Bali’s visitors come from within the region.
The survey of Bali visitors was conducted by the Bali branch of Bank Indonesia in May and November of 2012 and covered 1,000 respondents.
92% of those answering the survey confirmed they were on the island for a holiday, with 81% saying they want a return visit.
Stephanie Gunawan of Bank Indonesia showed that 67.09% of those responding were staying in the southernmost regency of Badung, followed by Gianyar (17.01%) and Denpasar (13.07%).
24.32% of those polled listed beach visits as a primary focus of their trip followed by shopping (13.10%) and museum visits (12.63%). Other motivations listed for visiting Bali included nature visits to mountains, lakes and waterfalls.
