Timing Your Trip

Bali’s amazing all year, but for the best balance of weather and crowds:

  • Shoulder Seasons: April-June and September-October are ideal.
  • Dry Season: May-September is your best bet for minimal rain.
  • Peak Season: July-August and December-January mean big crowds – book early!

Must-See Spots in Bali

  1. Ubud: Think lush rice paddies, ancient temples, and a whole lot of yoga! This is where you’ll find the cultural heart of the island.
  2. Canggu: This is the spot for trendy cafes, awesome surf, and a cool digital nomad scene.
  3. Uluwatu: Dramatic cliffs, epic sunsets, and some of the best beaches in Bali – a must-visit!
  4. The Nusa Islands: Picture a slower pace and postcard-worthy nature. Check out Nusa Lembongan, Nusa Ceningan, and Nusa Penida.

Taste of Bali: Food You Can’t Miss

  • Babi Guling: Try this famous whole roasted suckling pig – truly iconic!
  • Nasi Campur: This “mixed rice” gives you a delicious taste of lots of different Indonesian dishes.
  • Satay: Grilled meat skewers with peanut sauce – always a crowd-pleaser.

Bali has it all, so think about your style:

  • Ubud: Find jungle retreats and cozy spots tucked in the rice fields.
  • Canggu: Laid-back hostels and villas with a cool surfer vibe.
  • Uluwatu/The Bukit: Check out cliffside villas with ocean views or more budget-friendly options near the beaches.

Insider Tip: The south of Bali gets the most tourists. If you’re up for something different, try exploring the northern or eastern coasts for a totally unique, less-crowded Bali experience.
