When is the best time to fly to Bali?

Generally, the best time to visit Bali is between April-May or September-October. These months make up Bali’s “shoulder season,” aka, the season in between peak travel times and off-season. Bali’s best weather—warm, sunny and dry—occurs between April and October, but June through August can be very busy and crowded months in Bali. If you’re looking for a winter escape, book early, or travel right before or right after peak months.

Christmas and New Year are also popular times to visit Bali, even though it’s during rainy season. If you want to visit during the holidays, expect to see a bit higher prices and rainier weather.
