    Article : Bali sees increase in number in number of European tourists

    Bali tourism agency has recorded a significant increase from European tourists from January until the early second semester of 2017.

    A total of 557,423 European tourists came during the period, an increase 0f 20.8 percent from the same period last year that recorded 461,374 visits.

    The head of Bali tourism agency Anak Agung Gede Yuniartha Putra, in general, the number of overseas tourists who come to the Island of the Gods is growing by 23.41 percent. From early 2017 up to this day, there are already 2.8 million overseas tourists who come to Bali. The same period last year only had 2.3 million tourists.

    “This is a positive development for tourism in Bali, we’re optimistic that we can reach beyond the end-of-the-year target,” said Agung.

    “Flying to Bali from European countries is easy because there are so many airlines that offer a direct flight from Europe to Bali,” he added.

    Agung also mentioned that Bali is known as a safe place for traveling.

    Tourism minister Arief Yahya said that Bali is the main entrance gate to Indonesia, which is why Bali needs to be developed more, “This is the best way to develop other destinations that are not in Bali,” said Arief.

    He also mentioned about the only airport in Bali that is getting too crowded, and the alternative solution to building a new airport in North Bali in the near future. As for the short-term plan, Lombok is going to be developed soon as well as improving the Bali – Lombok route. (asw)
