Bali has a tropical climate which is warm all year round.
The average temperature is about 30 °C during the
day with high humidity making it feel alot warmer than
it is. There are generally 2 seasons : the dry season
from April to October and and the wet season from October
to March although rain can be expected at any time of
the year. In general expect a lot more rain in the wet
season! The best months to visit are April to September,
when the humidity is lower and there are more sunny days.
The temperatures tend to be cooler in the highlands such
as around Ubud, Lake Bratan and Munduk so bring a jumper/cardigan/sweater
just in case.
The national language is Bahasa Indonesia, which is
used as the medium of instruction in schools. The people
of Bali speak a Balinese Language at home, in their
community and in the market place. English is commonly
spoken throughout Bali particularly in commercial tourist
centers of Kuta, Seminyak, Sanur, Denpasar and Ubud.

220 Volts, 50 Cycles. Most hotels will have adaptors.
There are many internet cafes in the tourist areas.

will find several internet cafes along Monkey Forest
Road and Jalan Hanoman. At Villa Semana, you can use

In general Bali is safe and the most harassment you
will receive is from the street vendors selling cheap
tourist souvenirs. Is Bali safe from terrorists? Answer
: Is London safe from terrorists? Is New York safe from
terrorists? If you are concerned, exercise the same
type of caution you would when visiting other places
that have terrorist attacks. Avoid crowded tourist areas
where possible... many tourists only stay, eat and shop
in Kuta, but that is not the only place in Bali. Many
tourists are choosing to return to Bali for their holidays
because they feel it is safe and realise that they cannot
stop going to every country where there has been a terrorist
Finally... not all terrorists have dark skin and speak
foreign languages and bear in mind, a terrorist attack
can happen in a Western country, including one where
it hasn't happened before.
