Bali Holidays

Bali has been stealing the show from the rest of Indonesia for years, and it’s easy to see why. Incredible beaches, lush landscapes, looming mountains and a fascinating culture mean this small volcanic island has no shortage of diversions. Both the perfect honeymoon destination and ripe for adventure, Nusa Dua boasts some of the island’s most luxurious resorts, while chic Seminyak offers boutique shopping and world-class spas. The cultural heart of Bali is located in Ubud, where local artisans can be found sculpting. And if you want to learn to surf, head to Kuta.

Getting Around Bali

Bemos (a public minibus style of transport) and Ojeks (a motorbike that takes paying passengers) are the most common ways of getting around Bali. While these transport styles are cheap, particularly if you haggle, they aren’t always the safest. Metered taxis are also available, mainly in the south of Bali. If you prefer to go it alone, motorcycle, scooter and bicycle rentals are common in Bali too, just be aware that the roads can be hazardous.

When to Go to Bali

With its close proximity to the equator, Bali is blessed with a warm, sunny climate where the temperature rarely fluctuates much from 30°C. The tropical weather draws year-round sun-seekers to the island’s beaches and warm seas, and with no ‘bad’ time to go, the best month to visit is dependent on your interests. The dry season from April to September enjoys low humidity and temperatures sit around 27 to 30°C. This season is the most popular to visit as it coincides with European summer and Australia holidays. The wet season takes place from October to March with higher humidity and rain, although the rain is quite sporadic. If you’re looking to avoid the crowds, this is a still a great time to visit.
