The Balinese climate is warm and
humid, with the rainy season lasting from November to
the beginning of April (there may, however, be
rainshowers in any month, especially in the hills.)The
best months for travelling are April to October, but
the rainy months also have a charm of their own. Even
in the rainy season it almost never rains all day long
but mostly only in the afternoon, and these warm,
heavy tropical rainfalls can be very nice. The north
coast tends to get the least rain, the hills the most.
Bali has very soft, gentle, almost balsamic air and
industrial pollution is almost absent.
cotton, viscose or silk clothes are most comfortable
to wear in this warm climate (linen is usually too
heavy). Swimming attire or shorts or tops
that do not cover the shoulders should not be worn
outside the hotel areas. Sloppy or untidy clothing
should also be avoided, because clothing is an
indicator of social status and you will be treated
much better if you are dressed cleanly and modestly.
Best Time for Travelling:
The peak season for Bali is the months of July,
August, and September (this the main holiday season in
Australia and New Zealand). The weather ist most dry
in these months, and it is likely to rain very rarely.
However, because the island is very crowded at this
time, we would rather recommend coming in March, April
or May, when the weather is almost just as nice, and
there are less tourists. You will also get hotel and
flight bargains for these times. An alternative time
would be the month of September, October or November,
which has similar advantages.
