Bali is known for its gorgeous beaches, majestic volcanic cliffs and vibrant culture. From affordable accommodation and food to top-notch luxury experiences, this island has something for everyone regardless of your budget.
With a large percentage of the population being Hindu, the Balinese religion is visible in everyday life. This influence can be seen in the many beautiful temples, theatre performances, art and other cultural attractions across the island.
The Island of the Gods also has lush, green tropical rainforests for visitors to explore. Many of the trails lead to hidden waterfalls and other natural wonders that will leave you speechless.
Despite being a popular tourist destination, Bali remains a very safe place to visit. Locals are extremely friendly and kind, but the language barrier often presents a challenge when communicating with people. In the event of an emergency, it is recommended to have a basic knowledge of Indonesian and/or English (so you can ask for help if needed).
The best time to visit Bali is during the dry season between April and October when the weather is warm and sunny with low humidity. However, Bali is located near the equator and it does experience a wet season with rainfall from November to March. This can sometimes affect travel plans but it can also be a great time to visit as the crowds are much thinner. If you do decide to go during the rainy season, be sure to bring a poncho or umbrella with you.
