Welcome to Bali

Bali may be small in size – you can drive around the entire coast in one long day – but its prominence as a destination is huge, and rightfully so. Ask travellers what Bali means to them and you’ll get as many answers as there are flowers on a frangipani tree. Virescent rice terraces, pulse-pounding surf, enchanting temple ceremonies, mesmerising dance performances and ribbons of beaches are just some of the images people cherish.

Small obviously doesn’t mean limited. The manic whirl of Kuta segues into the luxury of Seminyak. The artistic swirl of Ubud is a counterpoint to misty treks amid the volcanoes. Mellow beach towns like Amed, Lovina and Pemuteran can be found right round the coast and just offshore is the laid-back idyll of Nusa Lembongan.

As you stumble upon the exquisite little offerings left all over the island that materialise as if by magic, you’ll see that the tiny tapestry of colours and textures is a metaphor for Bali itself.

 

Temperature

Bali is an Indonesian Island located 2km south east of Java in the Indonesian archipelago. Its mix of lush tropical forest and impressive mountain landscape interspersed with sandy beaches and a hot climate, make it a popular holiday destination. Located only eight degrees south of the equator, Bali doesn’t experience much of an annual range in temperature. While seasonally the two periods (Wet and Dry season) differ greatly in characteristics, the actual temperature doesn’t vary so much- sitting at an average of 31 ºC to 33 ºC all year round.

There is slight variation in the temperatures once you head inland from the coast, as the geography of the island means that as you head inland you also head upwards- hitting the mountain ranges and rising in altitude. This means that it can get quite cool, particularly in the evenings, so it is best to pack a warm coat if visiting the mountain villages of Kintamani and Candikuning.

While climatically it is advised to visit Bali during the dry season of April to October, the Wet Season from November to March coincides with the southern hemisphere’s summer which attracts those who have time off over summer. If you are up for a party atmosphere, the time to go is during the rainy season. Students, travellers and youth flock to the island and make the most of the cheaper prices that the rainy season attracts. If you want to avoid rowdy night clubs and a vibrant party atmosphere then avoid Bali, Kuta in particular, throughout January and February
