However, your best time to visit Bali begins in April, because the dry season starts. During this time, humidity is more bearable than during the preceding rainy season.  And while a stray rain shower isn’t impossible, the duration is diminished compared to the months before.

What else makes Bali so magnificent? Starting with the glorious spas! Bali’s world famous spas provide you with unrivaled pampering and relaxation! You’ll definitely want to partake in a therapeutic massage or facial treatment while you’re in Bali.

Also, don’t miss the gorgeous beaches, with warm water and sunshine year round.  April, in particular, happens to be a less crowded month.  Perhaps that would afford you the opportunity to learn to surf.  What a gorgeous place to do so!

To get a true feel for the culture of the region, visit some of the historic temples.  The area boasts over 20,000 of them, but some are truly standouts.   Especially see Taman Ayaun, built in 1634, and declared an official UNESCO site.  You can walk around the grounds and take photos. And definitely visit Tanah Lot, a temple by the sea, to join the others in watching the stunning view of the sunset from this location.
