Over an eleven month period to the end of November 2011, Aussies topped the list of the top ten foreign visitors to the island. Statistics from the Central Statistics Agency recorded a figure of 717,926 arrivals for the period. This impressive number is an increase of approximately 24% on the previous year. The agency added that the increase was due to the improvement of the Australian economy, the short distance between Australia and Bali, cheaper accommodation being on offer and frequency of cheaper flights. Many Western Australians in particular are now treating Bali as a second home or their backyard. Other countries at the top of the rung are China, Malaysia, Taiwan, South Korea, France, Singapore and England. While these  countries are performing well, countries like Japan and Germany are on the decline.
