Bali Tourism Still Strong
Bali has experienced solid growth in tourist numbers between January and May this year. The total number of tourists visiting Bali in March was 168,205, an increase of 4.66% on last year.
The number of tourists from China, Malaysia and Taiwan has increased. Australia and Japan still provide the largest number of tourists to Bali.
It is not known if the political situation in Thailand has any bearing on the increased numbers.
Authorities do say however, that the improvements in security measures in Bali have made foreign tourists feel more comfortable.
