When it comes to the budget, you can easily find affordable flights into Bali and finding a cheap place to stay isn’t a problem either.
Bali has tropical weather, with little variations from month to month. December falls during the wet season, which lasts from September to February. However, the wet seasons means you can experience about half an hour to an hour of heavy downpour every day. The rest of the day the temperatures are warm, with a lovely breeze. The humidity is 70% while the temperatures range between 18C and 31C.
While December in Bali is part of the wet season, it’s also one of the best times to visit Bali. You’ll be escaping the boiling heat during the dry season. Still, technically speaking the wet season is part of the low travel season so you’ll be able to get cheap airfare . It’s also easy to book an affordable hotel room. Of course, budget travelers will probably prefer a hostel .
Things to Do
You can soak up the sun on the superb Bali beaches regardless of the season. When it rains, just take your time and enjoy some food or enjoy a spa treatment.
December is also a good month to visit the sights. You can always hide in a museum or temple when the rain catches you outside the hotel. Or you can hunt for bargains in the shopping malls.
It is possible to dive and snorkel during December. And the rain makes the river even better for white water rafting. Practically, any water sport can be practiced, especially when it’s not raining.
Christmas is celebrated by the Christians in Bali. And of course, there are parties and activities for tourists. Likewise, the New Year’s Eve is celebrated just like in the Western countries.
