Bali has become the home away from home for many over the age of 65. Some of this retirement crowd has been coming for years and have just continued to do so after they retired, while others are just discovering the beauty and culture that Bali has to offer. One thing is for certain – Bali is welcoming this retiree tourist with open arms.
One of the largest demographics to take visit Bali is the elderly Japanese who come to Bali for their annual vacation. In fact, more than 2000 Japanese senior tourists come and stay for extended periods of time during the year. Of the 3 million tourists that arrived in Bali in 2012 a larger percentage were retirees from Japan, Germany, France, the UK, the Netherlands, Taiwan, Singapore, South Korea, and Australia.
