With a 10 day quarantine and no flights into Denpasur directly it has been very hard to get into Bali this past year. With the airport just re-opening 2 months ago and flights only coming from the very polluted city of Jakarta it's not been the most easy place to visit. With the stats below you must ask yourself is this real? The answer is yes. Only 45 tourists as of October 14th visited Bali this past year. So how did 45 people even get there? Well by private Yacht.
# of international tourists Bali received in 2019 6.2 million
# of international tourists Bali received in 2020 1.05 million
# of international tourists Bali received in 2021 45
Really 45 tourists came to Bali? Is this fake news? A scam? Misinformation? NO. It's real but if Omicron doesnt take off and there isn't a new variant we would expect to see this number jump dramatically in 2022 for the Indonesian Island that I love so much. The only question is will they drop the $300 visa fee and other quarantine restrictions that have hindered tourism now that the airport is re-open?
