Bali’s “dry” season stretches from April through to October and sees slightly cooler temperatures and less humidity across the island, perfect for sightseeing and long days at the beach. The peak tourist season coincides with the European summer holiday months of July and August, when hotel prices are inflated and there are crowds at many of the temples and scenic viewpoints. You can still get some good flight deals during this period, provided you don’t travel during the New Zealand winter school holiday period.
The “wet” season is not so pronounced in Bali as in other parts of Indonesia, with only short downpours experienced during the rainy months of October through to March. Humidity and temperatures are slightly higher, but none of these climatic factors put a serious dampener on sightseeing. Hotel prices drop considerably for much of the season and there are some good flight deals to be found, except over the Christmas/New Year period when cheap flights to Bali are difficult to come by.
