Since the year-end holiday, visits at the Bali Zoo increased by 50%.

This was revealed by the zoo spokesman, AA Ngurah Alit Sujana, stating “Holiday visitors continue to arrive at the park. It’s going to be busy until this Sunday”.

Meanwhile, the Nusa Dua and Mandalika Bali were among the top destinations for domestic tourists this holiday season, especially since they offered and advertised lower prices for hotel and resort stays.
