> Where to go in Asia
The best time for you to visit Bali is during dry season: the months of April, May, June and September. Just before and just after high season, the weather conditions around this time are very pleasant. If you enjoy taking part in some water sport activities, these months provide you with clear water and less crowds. The room and villa prices around this time can be a lot cheaper.
Bali experiences tropical, warm and humid climate all year round. There are two distinctive seasons; dry season from May until September, and the wet season, from October to April. The average year-round temperatures in Bali is close to 31°C and a humidity level of around 85%.
If you have the desire to connect with traditional Bali, you may be tempted to try Lawar. If you’re going to consume any local Balinese dish make it this one. The tasty dish is created from a combination of vegetables, coconut and minced meat mixed with rich Balinese herbs and spices. On the island you will discover a number of different takes on this authentic dish.
Uluwatu Sea Temple, or Pura Lahur Uluwatu is one of most spectacular temples on the island believed to be one of Bali’s spiritual pillars. It is renowned for its exceptional location, the temple lives on the edge of an eighty metre cliff above the waves. Here you can experience the ultimate Balinese sunset and encounter Kecak Fire Dance performances.
Splash out in Asia’s most impressive water park, Waterbom Bali, definitely worthy of a day out with the family. The perfect adventure for everyone, the thrill seekers will love the sheer number of exhilarating world-class slides, but, for the younger more reserved guests might be more suited to the splash playground and extensive Lazy River.
The Ubud Monkey Forest is an unusual place of worship, with masses of mischievous monkeys living in and around the sacred temples and lush greenery. Definitely good value to visit and interact with the hordes of Balinese long-tailed monkeys. Be wary that the monkeys will keep an eye out on passing tourist in hopes of handouts! Monkeys aside, the peaceful forest and its mossy temples are beautiful.
