Country information

What is the weather like in Bali
With sunshine throughout the year, Bali has a tropical monsoon climate, with pleasant day temperatures between 20 to 33 degrees Celsius. The rainy season starts from October to March with occasional heavy showers and high humidity. June to September is the dry season and best time for outdoor activities, with low humidity but it can get cold during the evenings.

Bali Culture
The rituals and festivals are everywhere you look. Offerings outside your hotel or shops, the population takes pride in their religious responsibilities. When packing your holiday suitcase include a sarong with or buy one as soon as you have settled into your hotel.

Drinks & Markets
Beer is cheap, and cocktails will surprise you with their taste. Avoid drinks that are labeled as Arak and remember wines are expensive. Drink bottled water only and avoid ice in your drinks.
Local markets are fun to go to and as usual, haggling is a must.

Discover your environment
Hire a motorbike for the day and insist on a helmet. An alternative is to hire a Bluebird Taxi for a few hours, they come metered, are clean and cheap.

Tipping
Staff is lowly paid in Bali however they still are extremely generous and hospitable. If you receive a good service, tipping will go a long way

Dishes not to be missed for first-time travelers to Bali
Pisang Goreng: fried bananas and an all-time favorite
Mie Goreng: Fried noodles served with vegetables and a choice of chicken, shrimps or pork

BEAUTY OF KINTAMANI TOUR (SUN-MON-WED-FRI)

  • Highlights of this full day tour:
     
  • Traditional Balinese Barong and Keris Dance
  • Woodcarving artists
  • Breathtaking views at Mount and Lake Batur
  • Tampaksiring’s holy fountain of youth

Bali is famous for its traditional dances. One of them is the famous Barong & Keris Dance telling a story from the ancient Ramayana. Our first stop during this tour is to enjoy the beauty and graciousness of the skillful Balinese dancers. The dance expresses the eternal fight between good and evil spirits and ends up with the magical Keris (dagger) dance. Then we will proceed to the Village of Kemenuh to visit the talented Balinese woodcarving artists in their traditional workshops. You will see how they make beautiful statues and art out of a single block of wood. The journey then proceeds to Kintamani to view the breathtaking Lake Batur and the active Volcano called Mount Batur (1730 m.). Here is an opportunity for you to have lunch with an excellent view. Next destination is Tampaksiring, ‘The Fountain of Youth” and Holy Spring.
