Jakarta – Bali’s reviving tourism industry has experienced a rise in the number of visitors from South Korea, who have long been considered the “non-traditional” tourist market for Indonesia.

Based on a figure from Bali’s tourism agency, as reported by Antara on Monday, the number of South Korean tourists rose by 54.1 percent to 121,858 last year from 79,072 in 2006. The agency forecasts the rising trend to continue this year.

The figure ranked Korea fourth after Japan, Australia and Taiwan as the countries that contributed the most foreign visitors to Bali last year.
