Bali still more popular than Fiji
Bali continues to be the island destination of choice for Australians over Fiji, The Sydney Morning Herald has reported.
More than 600,000 Australians headed to Bali last year, accounting for around a quarter of Bali’s 2.53 million visitors and making Australia the island’s biggest foreign contingent.
Fiji welcomed 318,185 Aussies in 2010, however this accounted for more than half of Fiji’s total visitor numbers, up significantly on the 28 per cent they accounted for the previous year.
Despite attracting fewer visitors, Fiji does have several advantages for Australian travellers over Bali – travel time is shorter, its beaches are generally regarded as cleaner and an increase in the number of airlines flying there have helped make the island a cheaper alternative.
