1600 international travellers to Bali is nothing to crow about - a fraction of the number of tourists who would have visited but for the draconian visa hassle and cost and the quarantine requirement.

@Roger Thomas, how was it being stuck in a fortress Australia in the last two years? Any deep soul searching or too content, too inward-looking, too complacent. Some even argued that fortress Australia has been an economic policy. It has kept out covid as a wishful thinking but that does not stop the virus from entering any border around the world including Australia.

On the Bangkok post, Indonesia recorded 143,744 foreign visitor arrivals in January, up 13.62% annually.
