Bali Holidays

For many, Bali represents Indonesia – a romantic outpost of pristine tropical beaches, translucent azure-blue seas, a developed artistic tradition and a unique culture that blends indigenous Balinese practices with wider Indonesian influences. Verdant jungle gives way to steeply terraced rice paddies, volcanic peaks frame ancient temples and villages echo with the work of goldsmiths, weavers, carvers and painters. Despite its relatively small size, Bali is incredibly diverse and offers and wide range of different things to see and do. Ubud is the artistic and cultural heart of Bali and there is plenty to experience here. Visit the thousand-year-old Tampak Siring Temple, spend time in a number of different handicraft villages or attend a local performance of traditional Balinese dance. The journey between Ubud and Candidasa harbours one of the island’s highlights – the twenty-two temples that form holy Besakih, including Pura Penataran Agung, the Mother Temple of Bali – whilst Candidasa itself is home to some fine examples of Balinese architecture. The northern coast of Bali is renowned for its spectacular volcanic scenery, coffee plantations and sandy beaches. Visit quaint fishing villages and old Dutch colonial towns, head to Munduk, a Balinese hill station, for walking and birdwatching or, simply, relax by the sea, snorkelling colourful coral reefs. Pettitts Travel specialises in providing bespoke tailor-made holidays to Indonesia and cultural tours to the island of Bali.

When to visit Bali

Best Times
Good Times

Long considered the gateway to Indonesia, Bali is a perennially popular destination. Similar to the many islands of the Indonesian archipelago, Bali’s climate is typically tropical with steady year-round temperatures that hover around 30°C and higher than average humidity – the only exceptions to this rule being the cooler upland areas that surround Ubud and the mountains of the interior. There are two recognised seasons in Bali – the dry season that runs from April to September and the wet monsoon season between October and March, the former of which is considered to be the best time to visit the island. Temperatures slightly increase during the dry season, there are more sunny days, skies are clear and the humidity tends to dip a little. Conversely, the monsoon season heralds the arrival of more frequent rainfall and higher humidity although showers tend to occur in the afternoon and take the form of brief tropical downpours. It is important to note that the rainfall is rarely constant and between showers skies are invariably clear.

What to do in Bali

Indonesia’s best-known island, in many ways Bali also stands distinct from its neighbours with an endemic Balinese culture, distinct artistic traditions and a broadly Hindu society which is unique within the wider Southeast Asian region. This strong cultural identity is reflected in Balinese art and music, expressive dance forms and distinctive ikat patterned fabric. A key highlight of a Bali tailor-made holiday is the town of Ubud which is the island’s artistic and cultural hub. Using Ubud as a base, visit surrounding villages, many of which are renowned handicraft centres, then continue by road towards Candidasa stopping at Bali’s holiest site – the Besakih temple complex of which the Pura Penataran Agung, the Mother Temple of Bali, forms part. As you travel north, the onus shifts to the outdoors – coastal relaxation, spectacular landscapes, wildlife and walking – although there are still a number of important temples, palaces and traditional weaving villages to discover. In Munduk explore the coffee plantations of Bali’s main hill station, bird watch in Bali Barat National Park, snorkel pristine coral reefs resplendent with colourful tropical fish or extend your time in Indonesia by combining your holiday to Bali with the neighbouring islands of Java and Lombok.
