Indonesia’s location near the equator makes it a consistent year-round destination. Small variations in rainfall and temperature create two slightly different times of year, but all in all the best times to visit are ‘whenever your schedule allows’.  In general it is hot (between 80-85 F) all year and humid, particularly in the wet season.  Variations in temperature may occur with altitude changes as well. As it is in the tropics, you will see rainfall year-round. A period of heavier rainfall lasts from October to March, with December to February receiving more than the others months. Flooding can make road travel difficult at times during this season. The months of June to August offer a slight cooling in temperature and less humid air, making it a more popular time for visitors. 

The more popular tourist destination of Bali receives a greater influx of tourist crowds during common school holiday breaks and are significantly less crowded in shoulder seasons. Shoulder season sees afternoon showers that tend to be short and typically don’t interrupt the days and fewer tourist crowds. Indonesia also celebrates certain religious holidays, such as Ramadan lasting most of June, which causes more services to close their doors. Early June the Bali Arts Festival and Kite Fair is in full swing. July holds the Negara Bull Races and the nation’s Independence Day is on August 17th.
