Bali is an island and province of Indonesia, the world’s largest archipelago located in South East Asia. It is a favourite holiday destination of people around the world with many travellers coming to visit repeatedly every year. It has the perfect sandy beaches, stunning coastlines, beautiful countryside, sacred temples, plenty of adventure activities, Balinese massages and spas, world-class yoga retreats, vibrant nightlife and uber luxurious resorts.
Bali is the only Hindu dominated (over 80% of the local population) province in this Muslim country. Tourism plays a big role in Bali’s economy with over 70% overall contribution.
Bali has a tropical climate and has two seasons. The wet season from November to March and the dry season from April to October. Temperatures stay fairly constant throughout the year between 25 °C to 32°C.
Best time to visit
The best time to visit Bali is during the dry season between April and October when the humidity is much lower. June-August sees maximum tourists and the best weather but despite the rains, Bali is very busy during the Christmas – New Year holidays.
Balinese is the language spoken by the people of Bali and several nearby islands. Most Balinese speakers also speak Bahasa Indonesia (or Indonesian), the official language of Indonesia. English is widely spoken due to the effect of tourism and most Balinese are now trilingual.
The currency of Indonesia is the Indonesian Rupiahh (Rp or IDR). 1USD is equivalent to about 14,100IDR. Cash denominations start at Rp 1000 up to Rp 100,000 while lower denominations are in coins.
Credit cards are accepted in most bigger hotels and restaurants but cash is preferred in most other places. ATMs and money exchangers are available in plenty in bigger cities. Tipping is widely practised.
Indian passport holders travelling to Indonesia for tourism for less than 30 days do not need a visa. You will receive a ‘Visa exemption’ stamp during immigration at Bali airport but this exemption cannot be extended beyond 30 days.
For stay above 30 days, a Visa on arrival can be purchased on arrival for 30 days that can later be extended to up to 60.
Budget for a trip
Bali is considered a backpacker paradise. This means that one can travel and experience Bali on a shoestring budget with many travellers staying for weeks and months. Accommodation in Bali can vary from very cheap hostels to luxurious resorts. Food is inexpensive. Public transport is essentially non-existent. Tourists can rent motorbikes and cars for self-drive (not recommended due to road and traffic conditions) or book cabs for the duration of their stay.
We offer specialized transport services with vehicles that can accommodate wheelchairs.
When you think food in Bali, the first thing that comes to mind is the infamous term ‘Bali belly’. This refers to an upset stomach or traveler’s diarrhoea. Please note that this is usually due to binge eating and alcohol consumption during a relaxing tropical holiday which rarely occurs in people coming from similar climatic conditions.
Balinese culinary traditions are different from other parts of Indonesia. Rice, meats, vegetables and seafood are the main components of a meal. But with tourism taking over the island, one can find all cuisines of the world, hipster café’s, vegan/vegetarian and healthy food.
Alcohol is cheap and easily available.
