The Old Bali Blog « The Russians are coming!! Ex-soviet tourists flood Bali...
It's official - after President Yudhoyono threw a party for Putin during last year's APEC summit and strummed him a 'Happy Birthday' on his guitar, more Russians than ever are flocking to the Island of Fun.
Around 11,000 former Soviets hit the shore in 2013, mostly staying in star-rated hotels and 'spending lavishly'.
Nice! Just hope they don't have any plans to annex the place.
