Indonesia records 1.03 million tourist arrivals in January

The Central Statistics Agency (BPS) recorded 1.03 million foreign tourist arrivals in January, a 26.58 percent increase from the figure in January, 2016, which stood at 814,300.

However, the 2017 January figure was 7.42 percent lower than the figure in December, 2016, said BPS chairman Suhariyanto during a press conference on Wednesday.

He said the increase in December was pushed by the year-end holidays -- Christmas and New Year.

The BPS recorded that the visits through 19 main gates reached 930,930 people, while visits through other gates reached 99,800 people.

China contributed the most tourists at 200,190 arrivals from 114,770 in January, 2016, followed by Singaporean tourists, which increased to 100,860 from 96,790, Australian tourists to 100,860 from 94,370 and Malaysian tourists to 97,370 from 83,370.

The BPS also recorded a high increase of tourists from India to 38,670 arrivals from 25,590. “There is a special tourist promotion to India,” said Suhariyadi as reported by (bbn)
