Despite the lack of direct services, Indonesia’s Central Java Province in recent years is seeing healthy growth from China as a visitor source market.

Central Java received some 667,320 international arrivals in 2018, of which China contributed around 80,000 arrivals – 10 percent more than the previous year – to make up about 12 percent of the inbound market.
