The Island of the Gods evokes a sense of paradise, with a rich and diverse culture played out at all levels of life. There is something for everyone in Bali - from the chaos and partying of Kuta, to the cultural heart of Bali, Ubud.
Many visitors come to Bali to experience the forested volcanic mountains, iconic rice paddies, beaches and coral reefs.
Bali is also renowned for its diverse and sophisticated art forms, such as painting, sculpture, woodcarving, handcrafts, and performing arts.
Unlike the rest of the country, Bali is predominantly Hindu, which makes the island more secular and liberal as compared to the rest of Indonesia.
Despite Bali's reputation for being inundated with wild party-goers, women digital nomads will find that Bali is a safe island to discover solo. Take the usual precautions, especially in bars.
There have been a few cases of both men and women having their drinks spiked. Women should also be wary of the Kuta cowboys, men who prey on woman looking to establish a relationship.
If you are planning to travel to Lombok, be respectful of their Muslim culture and dress appropriately.
There are two main distinctive seasons: Dry Season and Rainy Season.
From December to March, the west monsoon can bring heavy showers and high humidity, but days are still often sunny with the rains starting in the late afternoon or evening and passing quickly.
From June to September, the humidity is low and it can be quite cool in the evenings. At this time of the year there is hardly any rain in the lowland coastal areas.
The best time to come to Bali is April, May, June and September, just before and just after high season. It's still dry season, it's slightly less humid, and room prices can be 30-50% cheaper than during high season.
