    The probability of encountering heavy showers and high humidity is highest from December to March. From June to September, the humidity is low and thus there is little rain in lowland coastal areas. Typically, tourists flock to Bali during the dry season (May to September) and some hotels may charge a peak season rate. If you would like to avoid the crowd, you may visit Bali in April or October which are the months between the wet and dry season.|Bali

    I'm planning to travel to Bali on September 4th and I've heard that time is the rainy and it true or not???

    I had been living in Bali for 2 years. Here is my recommendation: January until early March is a rainy seasons and also low season after new year eve, so you can get lower fare for hotel. End of March-Early June is one of the best seasons since not many tourist around, so you can enjoy Bali without any traffic jam especially in Kuta. Mid June-July is big holiday season for Indonesian, so pretty much hectic with local tourists. June-August, you may find windy nights and also highly recommended time to visit Bali. Sept-December would be also the high season with sunny days all around, Australians are everywhere since its becoming their first getaway for the youngsters.
    Bali offers many things from culture (dance,painting), dining, night life & eco travel. There are two annual conferences for writers & yoga enthusiasts in Ubud.
    If you enjoy the water sport, Bali is heaven for its colorful collar and fishes. One of the best is Menjangan Island, breathtaking underwater experience, Amed and also Tulamben for the beginners.
    Be careful when you're using money exchange in Kuta street. Nusa Dua & Jimbaran are great places to explore the best beaches in the island of gods.

    Best Season to Visit Bali - Bali experiences tropical weather all throughout the year due to its location near the equator. Tourists keep coming on to Bali all round the year in search of relax and peaceful holidays. So it's very important to know in advance when to visit Bali in Indonesia. Bali is an all season place as far as weather is concerned. However there are certain months in a year when it's become to humid in Bali. The ideal season to visit Bali is between March and September. This period is best for beach lovers as the day temperature remains good. It may rain sometimes during the day but it will fresh the air and bring more joy and fun for the tourists.

    Where to Stay and Party in Bali:
    The biggest resorts are the party towns of Kuta and Legian, with the more subdued beaches at Lovina and Candi Dasa. Most visitors also spent time in Ubud, whose mainstays continued to be paintings, carving, dancing and music making. The islands east of Bali, called Nusa Tenggara, also attract big crowds, particularly Lombok, with its beautiful beaches and temples.
  • We lived there for a year and found it was lovely all year round. Sure it rains but only for a bit(mostly in October-April) and when it stops it dries up really fast and sometimes you never even knew it had rained.
  • Conred Bali beackons from its beach of golden sand ,a highly personalized luxary and timeless style. My favourite place in Bali which you just must go and see is heading West from Denpasar about an hour and a half away a little place called Medewi. Just like what all of Bali was like 25 years ago, amazing. Expect to pay from $30 per night there for accommodation and then everything else costs next to nothing. Medewi is just a small beach in the middle of nowhere which is a great place to try surfing for the first time if there in the off season and the people are incredible.

    to climate between May and July is the best time to visit Bali and most
    visitors prefer to visit this Island during this time of the year. However, if
    you want to enjoy surfing there then May till October is the best good time to
    visit this wonderful Island. Get more details about its water by visiting:

    I had a great chance to visit the Bali state of Indonesia this past year through the bus tours. We stay there in a resort near of the Tanah Lot.  It was a rich cultural and romantic one. The place is frequented by lots of tourists and locals, especially during the afternoon hours when the sunset view is breathtakingly magnificent.

    Hello everyone!

    I have been living in Bali for 2 years now and thus can reccomend that the best time to travel in Bali, Indonesia is summer time - june, july, august. The weather is great and there is much less humidity in the air :), before raining season (before December) and after the raining season (starting from second part of February)!

    And by the way, if you are planning our vacation in Bali, and you wanna spend your time being adventurous and healthy, you should consider joining my yoga retreats! Really! 

    For example in august we are having 10 days Bali Island Exploration and Yoga Retreat, which is full of activities! You will find more information on my website

    or on Facebook

  • There is no necessarily best time to visit Bali, it has great weather all year round! If you're looking for resorts, let me recommend The Laguna Bali which is great if you're looking for a touch of luxury.
  • Hello,

    We are a family of 5 (3 kids ages 3, 6, 10) from USA, and arrived in Jakarta a week ago. We are planning to drive to Bali in our own car. We have 10 days to drive to Bali and back to Jakarta. Is this trip doable ? Any opinion or advice is much Appreciated.

  • Hi,

    We are a family of 4 with kids (3 and 12 years old) and are looking for 2 months stay in Bali. We prefer less crowded areas with easy access to the beach where we can do snorkeling and surf activities. We are looking for safe and clean villa or guesthouse for up to 1000$ per month. The rental must have reliable internet connection and an yeard. Since our small kid is only 3 years old we don't need pool or in case there is such it should be fenced. We would enjoy having some facilities for the kids (school, courses) nearby in the walking distance and some nice shopping/restaurants but we definitely don't want to be in a overcrowded and congested area. 
    Any advice or tip on the location will be highly appreciated. From what I saw so far Amed seems an a good option. We plan our 2 months stay between Jun and Aug 2015

    Hello my husband and I are planning a trip to Bali in August for our one year anniversary, my birthday and our real honeymoon. We are in our early 20s but are not big partyers. We have never traveled or been on vacation before and are not sure what to expect. what are some recommended places to stay? We have been told kuta and ubud. Approx how much are hotels by or on the beach that include our must haves! wifi, air conditioning and hot water. We would also like transportTion to and from the airport. How much would we spend on average a day for food and activities? What activities do you recommend doing in Bali? Any other info will be great! I am trying to figure out how much money we will need on our trip for the hotel, food, activities etc thank you!

    As you have never travelled abroad before you really need to go through a tour operator who will arrange all your flights, hotels to your requirements ( Bali is a very sophisticated resort and the hotels have hot water and aircondtioning) transfers to and from the airport. 

    Ubud is NOT near a beach its a collection of villages in central Bali good for a day trip.
    Kuta is the main resort and is known for surfing,five kilometres of beach, shopping and night life.

    If you go all inclusive you wont have to pay for food, you really need to go and see a travel agent or tour operator who can assist you.

    What country are you from?
  • Hi there,
    Check out this Indonesia Travel Guide, which has a Bali section, and will provide basic health, safety, climate info and the like. Alethia is right, if you are inexperienced travellers it may be easier to arrange a package tour.

    Where can I find a travel agent ? My husband and I currently are living in Japan (military). I was told to not go through out travel agency on base and I'm not sure where to find one in Japan and that speaks english. It's hard communicating out here I am taking a japanese class to learn the language. How much does an all inclusive hotel usually cost in Bali? Thank you!
  • edited January 2015
    Whoever told you not to go through the military travel services is not very clever, military personnel 
    are usually given discounts. 

    As for prices you need to check out Expedia or Google all inclusive on line. As only you know when and where you want to go, prices vary very much. Bali is not a cheap place to visit, unless you are a back packer and then there is no wifi or hot water.
  • Hi everyone,

    I'm currently doing a master dissertation and would like to ask for your help to participate in my online survey.
    The survey topic is around travel & tourism and my target respondents are people who actively use digital platforms/channels.
    It won't take more than 15 mins.
    I would really appreciate it if you could participate in the survey.
    So...if you have the time please follow the link below: ( I promise that this is not a spam)

    Thank you so much and looking forward for your participation.

  • October is one of the best times to visit Indonesia, particularly Bali. As this month is just out of the peak tourist times, accommodation and transport is cheaper, and the weather is just turning from sunshine to rain. Towards the end of the month, monsoon season gets a bit more dramatic, but so long as you arrive toward October 1st you should have a brilliant time in paradise.
