Bali by the Numbers: Year-End Wrap on 2011 – a Year When 2.75 million Foreign Tourists Visited Bali
Final Bali arrival figures for 2011 tallied 2,756,579 foreign tourists, an increase of 10.57% over the total for 2010 (2,493,058).
For the four years 2008 – 2011, Bali experienced an average annual growth rate in foreign tourist arrivals of 10%.
Month-to-month arrival totals over the four year period also demonstrates that in terms of seasonality Bali has no “low season” but, instead, a“shoulder season” stretching from January to March.
Ecotourism is a trendy concept for all the right reasons. When families stay in an ecolodge and discover eco activities, children become aware of the environment and benefit a great deal from spending quality time close to nature. Bali now offers various kid friendly ecolodges in beautiful surroundings so why not try and go back to nature for a weekend or longer?
