Arnoldus Kristianus, Jakarta – The number of international arrivals has soared by 196.85 percent to reach 6.31 million in the first seven months of the year compared to the same period last year, according to government data released on Friday.

Malaysia contributed the biggest share to Indonesia's international arrivals, amounting to 1 million visits, followed by Australia with 779,500 visits and Singapore with 777,900 visits.

In July alone, Indonesia received 1.12 million international arrivals, or 5.66 percent higher than the previous month and a 74.07 percent surge on a year-on-year basis, she said.

The occupancy rate at starred hotels climbed by 4.86 percentage points year-on-year to 54.63 percent and the average length of stay also climbed to 1.68 days.
