Bali is a popular tourist destination among holidaymakers, owing to its rich culture, diverse landscapes, tourist friendly setting and relative affordability. When visiting this tourist hotspot it is important you understand and are well-informed about the area, as this will go a long way towards making your Bali holiday a special one.
Firstly you need to consider what you want to take away from your Bali Holiday. Those heading to Bali for the wild nightlife and abundant shopping opportunities would be suited towards one of the larger towns such as Kuta or Seminyak. Kuta in particular is famous for its ideal surfing conditions, and therefore is a popular tourist destination. If you are more interested in discovering the vast culture and tradition of Bali, then head to the inland town of Ubud which is considered the arts and craft centre of Bali. A small rural town such as Canggu can offer a greater understanding in the everyday life of Balinese people, while also providing picturesque setting and more fantastic surfing conditions.
After deciding what part(s) of Bali to visit, next you need to decide upon accommodation. Hotels have been common place in Bali for years and provide adequate lodging, however in recent years there has been a great swing towards that of Luxury Bali Villas. While hotels maintain a western feel to them, Luxury Bali Villas are steeped in traditional Balinese culture and tradition, allowing you to fully immerse yourself in their rich culture for the entire duration of your holiday, and not just when you venture out. Both secluded and spacious, Luxury Bali Villas are perfect for whatever travelling party you belong to.
Next you need to consider the time of year you would like to visit Bali. Bali generally has a tropical climate and high humidity, which is amplified in the wet season (from October to April). The weather is less humid during the dry season, which occurs between May and September. As Bali is a popular tourist destination with other Australians, be warned that school holidays may bring more clutter to your accommodation and may raise prices.
So when planning you Bali holiday make sure you take into account what you want to take away from your visit, as your holiday will be much more rewarding if you can plan to suit you.
