Bali is a paradise where you can spend your time soaking up the local culture, visiting temples and doing plenty of outdoor activities. Whether you want to go scuba diving or wind surfing, surf on the beach or explore the jungles, there is something for everyone!
Embark on an adventure like no other. Begin your day with an early hike to the summit of Mount Batur, an active volcano that sits 1717m above sea level and is a popular spot for tourists who wish to see the sunrise over the tropical landscape. Watch the sun rise behind the mountains and soak up stunning views before taking in a Balinese breakfast of eggs and bananas cooked in volcanic steam.
You can also take a white river rafting trip to see the island wilderness from a new angle. Navigate the waterway and pass decorated Hindu shrines and lush tropical forests on this thrilling activity.
When to Visit Bali
The best time to visit Bali is during the mid-season months of July and August. These are less crowded and more affordable, compared to the peak season.
Besides the weather, the other reasons to choose these times are that you can experience a less busy Bali, and you will find more discounts and promotions in shops. Moreover, you will have the chance to enjoy more beaches and resorts that have not been overcrowded during these months.
Another great way to experience Bali is by going to the local markets where you can find everything from local clothes, souvenirs and traditional artifacts. Some of the popular markets are Sukawati Art Market, Kuta Art Market and Ubud Traditional Market.
