Domestic tourists have flooded the paradise island of Bali during the Christmas holiday, with daily arrivals doubling to 9,000 visitors, Antara reported on Sunday.
M. Dimyati, spokesman at airport management company Angkasa Pura, disclosed that the largest number of domestic arrivals at Ngurah Rai airport in Denpasar was mainly from Jakarta and Surabaya.
He noted that almost all domestic airlines had added flights to Bali to accommodate the increasing number of domestic tourists.
During the past six days, domestic arrivals had increased by 13 percent compared to the last Christmas holiday season.
"The arrivals of domestic tourists have increased drastically especially in the past two days. That could be the peak of domestic arrivals in Bali during Christmas holiday," Dimyati said.
