Why Visit Bali?

Located in the heart of Indonesia, Bali is a beautiful island surrounded by the clear blue waters of the Indian Ocean. Wind down as you take in what the island has to offer – lush greenery, soothing waves, beautiful sunsets, incredible views, comfortable pace of island life... and the list goes on ?

P.S. Need more convincing? Here are 8 reasons why Bali is THE perfect destination for your honeymoon!

Best Time to Visit

No matter the time of the year, Bali is always bustling with life. The island only experiences two seasons:

Dry season (April to October)

During the dry season, the weather on the island is warm without too much rainfall and humidity. Expect warm, blue skies and cool breezes – perfect for outdoor activities by the beach. The downside to the perfect weather? Everyone else loves to visit Bali in this season too! Hence, accommodation prices are generally higher and the island is much busier with more tourists visiting during the dry season.

Rainy season (November to March)

The island endures a tremendous amount of rain during the rainy season. Coupled with high temperatures and humidity, the wet season is enough reason to deter tourists from visiting Bali. The good news is that the low season always promises great bargains for accommodation prices. Best of all, you get to avoid the large crowds at tourist attractions around the island!

Depending on your preference, you can choose to either visit Bali during the dry season or the rainy season. However, for a more fuss-free experience, we would advise you to visit during the dry season to make the most out of your trip! After all, the best way to enjoy what nature has to offer is to be outdoors to fully experience it ?

Getting There

There are many airlines offering direct flights to the Ngurah Rai International Airport in Bali, so you can easily fly in from either Kuala Lumpur or Singapore. With a flight duration of approximately 3 hours, you are only a short journey away from your island getaway in the paradise that is Bali!

Getting Around

As the itinerary involves moving from one location to another in Bali, we would recommend you hire a private car plus a driver to transport you and your spouse around. Having a driver on-call will ensure a fuss-free holiday. While you eliminate the painful need to haggle with taxi drivers over fares on a regular basis during your trip, hiring a private charter also saves you time as your local driver is most likely a regular on the routes and thus is able to navigate the island with ease.

#HHWT Tip: For a hassle-free journey in Bali, book Klook's Bali Private Car Charter to bring you around the island's sights conveniently!
