International Bali Visitors Drastically Increasing

International Bali Visitors Drastically Increasing after the pandemic. Based on the latest report from the Bali Government.

If we look back, the pandemic has had a severe effect on Bali, as it has on many other areas around the world. Many businesses have had to close or reduce operations due to decreased demand, and unemployment has risen significantly. The local population has been hit hard, both economically and emotionally.

Covid-19 pandemic is not the only one Bali been face.

Over the last 10 years, Bali has seen a lot of changes. From the introduction of new infrastructure and improved transportation, to the increasing number of tourism and development, to the devastating natural disasters that have impacted the island, the past decade has been eventful.

In 2011, the Lombok earthquake caused devastating damage to the island, with a death toll of over 500 people and an estimated $300 million of damage to infrastructure.

2017, a series of volcanic eruptions from Mount Agung, located in the East of the island, resulted in thousands of people fleeing their homes to evacuate the area due to the potential for a larger eruption. 

In addition to the natural disasters, Bali has also seen an increase in tourism, with the number of tourist arrivals increasing from 1.6 million in 2009 to 5.5 million in 2018. 

Even so, Bali always come back stronger. After the last Covid disaster, Bali shows its progress, let see how data show how Bali survive:
