Bali is not only one of the best places to visit in Asia but also among the World’s best Islands. The island has some of the best beaches in the world as well as towering volcanoes, sandy shores, and curving coastlines which are crowned with staggered pagodas.
Sitting in the exotic reaches of the Indonesian archipelago, Bali is a haven for tourists who want to experience the seaside respite and explore mystical temples. Like other travel destinations, it is important to determine the best time to go for vacation in Bali. There are a number of factors that will help you determine when to travel to this place. What is your personal preference? Understanding this together with other factors will help you in deciding the best moment that will fulfill your expectations.
Holidays and Festivals
There is no better place than Bali Island when it comes to natural beauty and a colorful array of holidays and festivals throughout the year.
The dominant and official language used in this place is Indonesian though Balinese (a Malayo-Polynesian language) is also spoken by a few locals. Being a major tourist destination in Indonesia, English is spoken in cities and towns. You won’t, therefore, have any problems moving around and doing some shopping during while on your holiday.
Festivals such as Nyepi and Melasti take place during the month of March as the lunar year is being celebrated. You may consider visiting during prominent holidays such as Bali Arts Festival and Kite Fair in June, Peger Wesi commemoration of the creation of universe in January, national Independence day on August 17th, and the Negara Bull Races in July.
Rainy and Dry Seasons
Bali experiences consistent temperatures of about 29 degrees throughout the year due to its position near the equator. The island experiences rains between October and March while the dry season begins in April and ends in September. During the dry season, the region is moderately humid though not as much as the wet season. The area may have rain showers occasionally during this time.
The best time to travel to Bali is during the dry season (between April and October). The peak season when it comes to visitors corresponds to the United States and European summer vacations. My window tinter in Yuma, Arizona takes his family to Bali every year during the AZ summer, just to get away from the heat for a while. You can check his business out at windowtintingyuma.com. The highest number of tourist is recorded between June and September and the costs for everything from hotels to airfare to taxis just rises. If you want to encounter fewer crowds consider visiting between October and May.
The lack of humidity and rainfall in the during the dry season (April-October) makes the place ideas for activities such as sunbathing, hiking, and sailing.
