Travel to Bali

Bali may be small in size - you can drive around the entire coast in one long day - but its prominence as a destination is huge, and rightfully so. Bali, the famed Island of the Gods, with its varied landscape of hills and mountains, rugged coastlines and sandy beaches, lush rice terraces and barren volcanic hillsides all providing a picturesque backdrop to its colorful, deeply spiritual and unique culture, stakes a serious claim to be paradise on earth. With world-class surfing and diving, a large number of cultural, historical and archaeological attractions, and an large range of accommodations, Bali is one of the world's most popular island destinations.

Bali has a tropical climate appropriate to its proximity to the equator. Year round temperatures average in the 80’s. High humidity can be expected during the Wet Season between the months of October - April. The Dry Season between the months of May - September has the lowest humidity.
What to Wear in Bali:
Dress is informal. Lightweight cottons are most comfortable for outdoor activities. Evening wear, which includes batik, tends to be more formal. When touring a sacred sight in Bali it is improper for men or women to enter wearing shorts or very short skirts. Wear long-sleeved shirts, long pants or skirts or bring along a sarong to cover up.

Bali Culture & Customs:
Balinese culture is totally unique and permeates through every aspect of life of its people. The influence of Hinduism as the main religion is evident throughout the music, drama, art, costumes and festivals which take place daily on the island. Anthropologists believe that the Balinese are descended from the ancient Chinese, Indians and Arabs from the west and others who came to the island directly via Java. Throughout the island there are numerous temples and shrines that have stood the test of time.
What to Buy in Bali:
Bali is a shopper’s paradise. Hundreds of boutiques and roadside stalls have been set up all over the island, and thousands of artisans, craftspeople, seamstresses, woodcarvers, painters created beautiful souvenirs in their village compounds. Bargaining in markets, shops and art shops is a normal practice and getting a good price depends largely on one’s bargaining prowess. Remember to carry cash as not all places accept credit cards. Shops are usually open from 10AM to 11PM.
