2.2 Million People Traveling in Bali Throughout 2022

Minister of Tourism and Creative Economy Sandiaga Salahuddin Uno said the number of tourists vacationing in Bali throughout 2022 would reach 2.2 million people. This number exceeded the target set by the government of 1.5 million people.
“Achieved with 2.2 million. Amazingly, the target for tourism and Micro Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) has been significantly exceeded,” Sandiaga said after welcoming the arrival of the first tourists at I Gusti Ngurah Rai Airport, Sunday (01/01/2023).
Sandiaga revealed that Indonesia is targeting to bring in as many as 7.4 million tourists in 2023. The target for Bali this year is 4 million tourists. Meanwhile, Deputy Governor of Bali Tjokorda Oka Artha Ardana Sukawati revealed that the target of 4 million tourists set by the central government for Bali was a challenge in itself. The man who is familiarly called Cok Ace said he was optimistic that he could bring in more tourists in 2023.
“In the future, in 2023, by opening several new destinations, we hope that what is targeted by the center of 4 million can be achieved, that is the resolution. We encourage the distribution of more tourists in South Bali so they can spread to East Bali, North Bali,” Cok Ace told reporters at I Gusti Ngurah Rai Airport, Sunday (1/1/2023) early morning .
Cok Ace added, the next challenge for Bali tourism at the moment is the uneven distribution of tourists or still piling up in southern Bali. He admitted that he felt helped by the enthusiasm of domestic tourists visiting Bali during the year-end holidays. Moreover, they use private vehicles and stop at several tourist sites in the North Bali area.
