Bali is a spectacular year-round destination with changes in seasonal weather to look out for. Generally, the high season is between July and August and through December. Here, you'll find huge price hikes with hotels and restaurant reservations booking up fast. The shoulder season from May to June and in September tends to be the best period for comfortable weather conditions. You'll find a dry and less humid climate with warm and inviting coastal waters, as well as more last-minute and cheaper holiday deals. The low season coincides with the rainy season from January through April and in October and November. Although cheap deals can be found, you'll have to prepare for rainy days.
Bali has attractions to suit all kinds of traveller. Its idyllic resorts and premium sea views make it among the world’s most romantic getaways. You can explore the island by day and retire to pampering hotels for sunset drinks. Families will find much to enjoy too, including child-friendly beaches and quiet coastal regions. For older children, snorkelling, jungle adventure parks and rice field walks are sure to captivate and thrill the imagination. There’s no escaping that Bali also has a party-hard image.

Most arrivals into Bali arrive via Ngurah Rai International Airport, the island's principal airport with easy connections to Kuta, Seminyak and Ubud. Bali also has many vibrant ferry docks, including Benoa, Gilimanuk and Sanur. Once you’ve arrived in Bali, it’s best to travel to your hotel or resort via taxi cab or with a rental car. It is possible to be ripped off, so try to stick to Bluebird Taxis. If you want to travel frequently, consider hiring a driver to navigate the island. Cycling is another excellent option and most hotels will provide you with a rental.
