The Low/Wet Season: November through March
In the low/wet season, the temperature won’t be much different, ranging from 79 to 91 degrees Fahrenheit, but it will be rainy. Rainfall averages from 5.9 to nearly 12 inches, bringing rain throughout the country with the exception of Papua and Maluku. With so much water falling, some of the interior roads can become inaccessible, although in between showers, there will be plenty of sunny skies. Despite some saying this is not the time to come, Indonesia is really a year-round destination and this period is ideal for relaxing by the sea and avoiding the biggest crowds, provided you don’t visit around Christmas and New Year’s Eve. There are some unique festivals to enjoy too, including Nyepi on Bali, the Day of Silence, which is celebrated in March. The day before there will be a monster parade, and the day of is spent in silence.
While Indonesia is generally budget-friendly anytime of the year, again, depending on where you go, the low season is the time you’ll find some of the best deals on accommodation and airfare, as well as being the quietest months for avoiding thick tourist crowds.
