All of a sudden, Bali is wondering whether its boom in international visitors is over.
In the past five years, Australia has led the way in the rush to Bali, which is now the top international holiday spot for Aussies. In the past few years, Australia has also become the No. 1 source market for Bali visitors.
But, in the first month of the new year, the growth in visitors to the island suddenly halted, which prompted the local Bali Update newsletter to speculate whether the drop-off would continue through the year.
