Bali is one of the most popular tourist destinations in southeast Asia – and indeed, in the world. People from all over the world visit Bali every year, drawn in by its wonderful beaches, vibrant nightlife, and the wide range of affordable accommodation options – such as Bali villas. However, most people don’t make the most of their Bali holiday. They stick to the touristy parts of the island, they miss out on some of its natural beauty, and they don’t get the full Bali experience.
With this in mind, here’s a few of our top tips for making sure that you get the most out of your Bali holiday:
- They Beaches Aren’t As Good As They’re Meant To Be
If you’re coming from Australia, prepare to be disappointed in Bali’s beaches. Let’s face it – Australia has some of the best beaches in the world, and you simply won’t find anything like them in most of Bali. That’s not to say that Bali beaches aren’t good – the weather, beach bars, and wonderful vibes make them more than worth visiting.
- Choose Your Visiting Time Carefully
Bali suffers from an intense rainy season from October to April. The peak of the season is December and January, when it rains heavily almost daily. This can impact your holiday, forcing you to spend a lot more time indoors than you would perhaps like to, and reducing the amount of sights that you get to see. If possible, try and visit during the dry season – June and July are the best.
- Be Careful Driving
If you’re not used to driving in an Asian country, then proceed with caution if you choose to hire a scooter or motorbike to get around on. Bali’s roads are crazy, and you might find yourself in a bit of trouble if you’re not careful. Even if you don’t have to wear a helmet and protective gear, you should – there is a fairly good chance that you will fall off at some point.
