We are planning to travel to Bali for six weeks in early November/December with our little daughter (then 15 months). We are aware that November is the start of the rainy season and we are wondering whether we will be able to enjoy our stay. Unfortunately we can't move dates.
So, question 1: how rainy is the wet season?
question 2: has someone travelled to Bali with a baby/toddler and can recommend places to stay and what to do and see?
Many thanks in advance!!
It's difficult to predict the weather, but here's a helpful Web site: http://www.bali.climatemps.com/
I was in Bali in late November a few years ago and it hardly rained at all. As the previous poster says, it's hard to predict, but it does seem that in recent years rainy seasons are arriving later than they used to.
Hey Steff, I can't help with answers, but good to see you back! And congrats on the little one
Thanks for the answers and the welcome back, Peter! It's been a few busy years and recent months with the little one ☺.
Way too many places to recommend seeing. You may want to start in Ubud. Central to many day trips and lots to do there. Narasoma spa is very nice and reasonably priced. ..A visit to Amed for a few days is nice and quiet. There many places to stay there for cheap.
For most of Indonesia lying south of the equator, November is considered the beginning of the rainy season. Unfortunately, Mother Nature doesn't read the guide books - so it is impossible to say what the conditions will be like for you. Last year it didn't rain until January.
To say "rainy season" doesn't mean monsoons, or days of torrential downfall. Indonesia has pretty temperate weather all year. Rainfall is sporadic, not constant.Typically some areas of all the islands have their "dry zones" while others areas get rain. A cheap umbrella will keep you dry if you are planning to do sightseeing. The beach will be sunny one day and cloudy the next.
Unless you intend to do some intense mountain climbing and tent camping, I wouldn't be overly concerned about the weather in November.
