A Guide to Bali
Know Before You Go
- If you're on a budget, stay in the north of Bali. Prices for hotels are cheaper, and you'll find fewer crowds at the restaurants, temples and beaches.
- Don't drink the tap water. Stick to using a refillable water bottle while you're in Bali and make sure it's coming from a clean source. It's also a good idea to avoid vegetables and fruits that have been rinsed with tap water if you want to avoid Bali belly.
- Cover up when temple hopping. You'll need to cover your shoulders and knees before entering a religious site in Bali. Some of the temples will also require you to wear a sarong which you can rent out if you don't have your own.
- Plan your trip around the rainy season. From January to April and October to November, the wet weather might put a brief damper on some of your plans. But if you don't mind being flexible, you'll find discounts on activities and accommodation during this period.
- Getting your visa. New Zealanders and 140 other nationalities are eligible for a free 30-day visa on arrival. This visa is not extendable and you'll have to pay a fine for every day you overstay in the country.
Getting Around Bali
- Use a ride-sharing service. While Uber, Grab and Go-Jek are available in Bali, you can't hop into your ride anywhere. To avoid creating tensions with other taxi drivers, don't request your driver outside your hotel if it's not permitted or next to a taxi stand.
- Hire a motorcycle. If you’re comfortable navigating around Bali's busy streets, you can rent a bike for a couple of dollars. If you're planning on making the most of your visa and spending the full 30-days, you can also negotiate a monthly fee.
- Rent a bicycle. If a motorcycle is not your speed, you can hire a bike in places like Ubud and Sanur. It's a cheaper option and an excellent way to explore the island at your own pace.
- Other options include taking one of the many local buses to get around, hailing a metered taxi or just exploring the town on foot.
Best time to visit Bali
When is The Best Time to Visit Bali?
The best time for Kiwis to visit Bali is during the island's two shoulder seasons. From April to June and September, you'll find lower prices at the island's top resorts and villas, plus the weather will be slightly less humid. You'll have fewer tourists to contend with at top attractions and many shops slash their prices to boost sales during the seasonal lull.
If you want the island all to yourself, plan your trip during the rainy season. From October to March, Bali receives most of its rain, with the downpours usually taking place in the afternoon. But if you don't mind planning your day around the weather, you'll score lower prices on flights, accommodation and tours.
The busiest time of year to visit Bali is from July to August and December to January. If you don't book your hotel room well in advance, you can expect to fork out almost double the price. The island is also heavily congested during this time, but the weather is perfect for many of Bali's iconic day trips.
