When to Visit Bali? It totally depends on your preference since Bali is good to visit all year round. There are two seasons in Bali – dry and wet.

Visit during Dry Season (May to September): April to August is the Peak tourist season in Bali since the weather is dry, sunny and pleasant. The waters are clearer making it ideal for water activities and you can sightsee easily without having to worry about rain.

Visit during Wet season (October to April): for lesser crowds, lower prices, surfing and lush greenery. If you don’t mind the rain and plan to spend less time on the beach, wet season is great.

Best time to visit would be in the shoulder months (April or September) for relatively lesser crowds and pleasant weather.
