“A total of 2,888,864 tourists visited Bali last year, exceeding the target of 2.8 million,” the head of the tourism office, Ida Bagus Kade Subhiksu, said here.

According to data from the office, Australia remained on top of the source of foreign tourist arrivals in Bali, followed by China, Japan, Malaysia and South Korea.

The data show 684,312 Australians and 267,353 Chinese visited Bali in the year to October 2012. He said the number of US tourists visiting Bali in the first ten months of 2012 also grew positively at 33 percent.

Bali has set a target of tourist arrivals for 2013 at 3.1 million. The target has been adjusted to the supporting capacity of Bali as a tourist destination, he said.

“In the past five years, the number of tourist arrivals in Bali grew by a range of 10-12 percent. That is good,” he said.

He expressed optimism that the target could be achieved as a number of infrastructure projects including underpass and toll road will have been completed by July 2013.
