Tourism is the most important source of foreign exchange. Bali is the most visited tourist island of Indonesia. The island covers substantial parts of its budget with funds from tourism. Today, about 4 million visitors come annually. Nevertheless, Bali has always retained its own cultural identity beyond tourism. Of the approximately 5,000 dance and gamelan groups who regularly hold their religious ceremonies, only a few are active exclusively for tourists.
Some places, such as Kuta, Legian and Seminyak, have become "westernized" over the last few years. Most tourists come from Indonesia, Australia, Japan, Germany and the Netherlands.
