Best Time To Visit Bali
Bali is one of the rare destinations in Southeast Asia that can be visited year-round. Of course, there are some months that are better than others, but in most situations, you will have an amazing time anytime you wish to visit.
Bali is a destination located in a tropical climate, therefore any time you are visiting Bali it is going be hot and a little bit humid in comparison to Europe or US climates. It can get colder, but that means a light jacket is more than enough.
You mostly know about four seasons: summer, winter, fall, and spring, but Bali is a different story. There you will find two seasons: dry seasons and wet seasons. Both have their pros and cons, and we will cover them all down below.
You will hear people that regular rains are some of the main reasons why they do not want to visit Bali in that season, but even if it is raining it is very hot and sunny, so in the morning it can rain for 2 hours and then the rest of the day can be perfect.
Because most people do not want to visit Bali in those months, your airplane tickets and accommodations can be cheaper (not much but enough) than usual dry season visits. Restaurants and bars that are usually crowded will be half empty and you can have a nice and relaxing glass of wine or in the morning a nice and relaxing cup of tea or coffee.
Spring is a perfect time to visit Bali, then you can see The Bali Spirit festival that is being held yearly in March and April. It is a perfect mix of world music and well-being and people from all over the world come to Bali just because of it.
Summer & Fall in Europe and the USA is also known as the dry season in Bali. The dry season is mostly from May to early October, and because of that, it is the most popular time of year to visit this amazing island. The weather is perfect, mildly warm, and humidity levels are perfect, but be sure to wear suncream because the sun is really hot and out of nowhere you will be red as a crab.
In those months, you will see a lot of tourists visiting Bali, but the prices of hotels and accommodations aren’t that much affected in comparison to the wet season, the only thing that is affected is airline prices, but if you are going from Singapore or Kuala Lumpur, the prices are going to vary from 50 – 70 Euro depending on the airline and class.
