While Japanese Travel Declines Elsewhere, Bali Japanese Arrivals Continue to Grow.

(6/14/2008) Japanese outbound travel is showing signs of being on a continuing decline in 2008 following a year (2007) in which 1.35% fewer Japanese traveled abroad (17.29 million).

Bali Outperforms

Japanese travels in 2007 declined across the board to the traditionally popular destinations of Taiwan (-2.8%), Hong Kong (-0.74%), South Korea (-10.18%), Hawaii (-5.20%), Guam (-2.17%), Australia (-22.88%) and New Zealand (-17.29%).

All news was not glum, however, with strong improvements in outbound travel reported to Macau (+38.66%), Singapore (+5.86%) and Bali I(+19.80%).

Japanese travel observers view the future warily, pointing to fuel surcharges, the declining value of the Japanese Yen, rising air fares and an uncertain economic outlook as factors weighing against a trip abroad for Japanese holidaymakers.

Japanese travelers to Bali for the period January ľApril, totaled 594,068 - increasing 9.6% over the same period in 2007 (472,450).

The Japanese represent Bali's number one source of inbound tourist visitors.
