Tourist arrivals in Indonesia continue to decline overall.
From January to July 2006 the number of tourists arriving at thirteen specified ports of entry was 2.26 million people, a decline of 8% year on year. 2.45 million visitors made the trek to Indonesia in the same period in 2005.
Month to month saw a slight increase with 361,900 visitors arriving in July 2006 up from 361,100 in June 2006. However Rusman Heriawan of the Badan Pusat Statistik (BPS) said  that this increase was disappointingly small given that July is the peak season for travel to Indonesia.
The statistics for Bali, the battered jewel in the Indonesian tourist crown, evidenced a decline year on year with visitor numbers for July 2006 of 128,620 representing a 22% fall on the same month last year.
Month to month for Bali saw the 115,502 figure for June 2006 increasing by 11% in July.
How many Danes visited Indonesia in 2007?
The Association of Danish Travel Agents and Tour Operators is once again doing a research regarding the Danes’ travel habits. This is done to meet the requests from all the journalists, researchers, students, interest organisations, governmental institutions and other interested parties that contact us each year to get an update regarding the number of Danes that visit a specified country during a year.
For the last two years we have released a report about the subject followed by a press release that was published in most of the big newspapers in Denmark
Because of the great success, we aim at doing a similar report this year. It is our hope that the report will help promote the tourism industries for the countries included among Danish travellers, or simply just to bring further attention to the countries among the Danes in general. Unfortunately we aren’t able to do this on our own, which is why we kindly ask for your help in this matter.
We hope you will help by answering how many Danes visited Indonesia in 2007, since we don’t have other possibilities of getting the figures. If you do not have the numbers yourself, but know where we can get them, we would really appreciate if you could let us know.
We hope for your helpfulness, and we would appreciate your answer as quick as possible.
Thank you very much for your co-operation.
