Foreign tourist arrivals exceed target

Bali is getting more popular every year. In 2013 this island attracted 3.27 million foreign tourists and the target for 2014 is to attract 3.5 million foreign tourists. According to The Jakarta Post the number of foreign tourists visiting the island during the first three months of 2014 rose by 14.87 percent from the same period last year. Study also shows that this growth is mainly in the Asian and domestic market. Most of the tourists in Bali stay in the relatively cheaper newly build apartment and condo tells. This is not the market we focus on within BaliOn. The growth does not automatically apply to luxury villas. The villa association stated recently that bookings for private villas are 20% to  25% down to last year.

Developments airports
The expansion and renovation of Ngurah Rai International Airport in Badung regency, Bali is scheduled to be completed by the end of June. After the completion of the work, it is estimated that Ngurah Rai will be able to accommodate 25 million passengers per year through 2025.
Practical tip: Please note that the departure tax is increased from 150.000rp to 200.000 IDR.

Fundraising festival was a succes!
Last Saturday Bye Bye Plastic Bags held a fundraising festival at the Green School and it was a great success. The day was filled with many fun activities and they have raised a large amount of money for their great projects.
