(Reuters) - Indonesia's foreign tourist arrivals grew 9.9 percent in June to 674,400 people, the statistics bureau said on Monday.

The main destinations were the resort island of Bali and capital Jakarta, it said.

The archipelago lags regional neighbours in attracting tourists, though some economists think growing its service industries could be a new engine of growth for Southeast Asia's largest economy. (Reporting by Aditya Suharmoko; Editing by Neil Chatterjee)
