Jakarta (ANTARA News) - More holiday-makers heading to Indonesia's resort island of Bali boosted overall tourist arrivals by 12.22 percent in the first half of 2007 compared to last year, according to data released Wednesday.

The number of foreign tourists heading to Indonesia climbed to 2.14 million in the first six months of the year, official figures from the Central Bureau of Statistics showed.

Visitors coming through Bali's Ngurah Rai airport rose 33.7 percent to 781,059, while the number of tourists passing through Jakarta's Soekarno-Hatta airport dropped 1.9 percent to 554,086.

The spike in arrivals signals a rebound for the resort island's tourism industry, which has suffered in recent years amid security concerns.

Bombings targeting Westerners in restaurants and nightclubs on the island in 2002 and 2005 killed more than 200 people.

For the month of June, overall arrivals through Indonesia's 15 entry points rose to 411,264, up 12 percent from 366,137 in May, the bureau was quoted by AFP as saying. (*)
