According to Statistics Indonesia (BPS), the total the number of foreign tourists arriving between January and February 2022 reached 33,593. “These numbers are actually more than last year, which means that our tourism sector is getting better. But they are still far below the millions of foreign tourists we used to register before the COVID-19 pandemic, — said BPS head Margot Juwono at a media briefing. 

Tourists from China accounted for 16.13 percent of the total in February, followed by Russia with 6.77% and South Korea at 6.35%.
