It may be one of 17,000 islands in the Indonesian archipelago, Bali stands out with words like “paradise” and “nirvana” often used to describe it. Only about 1.5 miles from the eastern tip of Java, just west of Lombok, this lush island is an ideal destination for travelers on a budget as well as those with money to spend.

Many come for the beautiful beaches, diving, surfing, and activity-filled resorts, it offers much more than a sun-soaked retreat. From the vibrant nightlife in Kuta to soaring mountains laced with waterfalls and sparkling lakes, verdant rice fields, ancient temples, and exotic wildlife, not to mention the out-of-this-world food and drink, it’s on many travelers’ bucket lists.

While the beauty might take the spotlight, the locals with their genuine, warm smiles and incredible hospitality make Bali a place that many feel compelled to visit again and again.

Best time to visit Bali

Sitting close to the Equator, Bali has a tropical climate that offers hot weather year-round. The best time to visit Bali is during the drier months from April to October. May to August offers particularly pleasant weather, making it ideal for outdoor activities and beach excursions. The wetter months from November to March, bring occasional heavy rains, but it’s also when the island is at its most lush and green.

Keep in mind that Bali is a popular destination, so if you prefer fewer crowds, consider planning your trip during the shoulder months of April, May, September, or October when the weather is still favorable, and the tourist influx is lower.

    3 Days in Ubud, Bali

    Any trip to Bali simply must spend time in Ubud. Once a small and very traditional village, then later considered the heart of Bali’s hippy scene, Ubud has now grown into one of Indonesia's top destinations. 

    We’d recommend spending several days in situ to enjoy all a stay in Ubud has to offer. Our recommended 3 days Ubud itinerary is found below - but you could really spend a week or more here and not run out of things to see and do.

    The north and east of Bali feel like a completely different island to the busy south.

    Rice fields in Bali that you must see

    The ‘Island of Gods’ is a natural paradise: soaring volcanoes, dense jungles, beautiful rice fields, kaleidoscopic corals, and miles upon miles of black and white sand beaches. 

    Bali is also a cultural haven. The Balinese have thrived as a distinctly different culture to the rest of Indonesia: largely Hindu, known for their easy-going, intelligent manner. Key to all Balinese life is the concept of ‘Tri Hita Karana’, a philosophy of harmony in three key tenets: harmony with nature, with other humans, and with god.

    Bali’s lush, emerald rice terraces are not only scenically stunning but also an illustration of these harmonious principles. With an ingenious subak irrigation system honed over centuries, they are both highly functional, and aesthetically pleasing, working with nature to bring sustenance to the people and joy to gods. 

    All of Bali’s rice terraces are protected under the UNESCO World Heritage scheme, owing to their ubiquity and their deep cultural ties to the Balinese. We’ve put together a list of our favorite rice terrace areas on the island below.
