Over 850,000 Mainland Chinese To Bali This Year

Category: Tourism, Posted:18 Oct 2016 | 08:41 am

Over the past few days being in Bali, I am seeing a parallel trend to Phuket.

Bolstering the view is data released by BaliDiscovery.com that forecasts over 850,000 Mainland Chinese visitors by the end of 2016 to the Island of the Gods.

Looking at  Bali’s airport arrivals for the first 7 months of the year (January through July), foreign passenger arrivals has spiked up by 19.8% comparing year-on-year-figures.

When the dust settled by the close of December, a record 4.8 million foreign arrivals are expected to tip the scale.

While Australia still accounts for 23% of the international traffic, and has surged 12% versus 2016, the real storyline is Mainland China with 25% growth and 20% market share.

Mind the gap and by the time 2017 rolls around Bali’s two-horse tourism race is expected to be neck and neck.

One additional note on Bali is that European and North American numbers are up in comparison to last year, hence there remains some equilibrium between East and West.

In mid-2016 Indonesia spurred their tourism market by offering visa-free travel for a number of countries including Mainland China.

Let’s Make A Deal – The Hotel Chain Crisis Reaction

Category: Hotels, Posted:27 Jun 2020 | 14:57 pm While we are still in the midst of the evolving Covd-19 storyline, one thing that is apparent is how massively ill-equipped global hotel group’s sales and marketing and distribution systems are for disruption.
