Travel Forums Asia Now China Opened, How Busy Is Indonesia Likely To Be?

UK press reporting loads of Chinese people travelling overseas for chun yun, more than usual after they've been through extended lock-down.

I'd been thinking of heading to Indonesia likely within the next couple of weeks but wondering if all the lower end hotels/hostels might be full and difficult to find places to stay. Wondering if I'd be better maybe heading to India for a month or 2 then heading on to Indonesia? I don't want to be wasting ages searching for paces to stay and end-up having to pay more than I want just to find somewhere with space (maybe further from where I want to be).

e.g. UK Guardian 8/Jan/23 ""Across Asia, tourist hubs are preparing for a surge in Chinese visitors. Same article "'I wonder if an influx of too many of them might overwhelm our capacity. I’m also worried that we need to be more careful about anti-virus measures.'"

I remember in Burma in Chinese New Year in Yangon accommodation was a nightmare because of Chinese tourists for the new year (to the point where I headed north out of the city).
