Things to know before flying to Bali
If you’re travelling to Bali on a British Citizen passport, you don’t need a visa to enter Indonesia for visits of up to 30 days. Beyond 30 days, you will need to apply for a visa online before you travel or purchase one upon arriver for US $35, or approximately £27.
Remember: your passport should be valid for a minimum period of 6 months from the date of your departure from Indonesia.
Flights from the UK
Bali’s primary airport is Denpasar International DPS
The journey from the UK is over 17 hours and there are no direct flights from the UK to Bali.
Many airports in the UK have relatively affordable flights to the island. Flights from London Heathrow have one connection, while Manchester Airport and Birmingham Airport have two connection flights at least. A cheaper option is to fly from the UK to the Indonesian capital of Jakarta and then getting a domestic flight to the island.
There are several airlines that serve Bali from the UK including Emirates, Qatar Airways, Singapore Airlines, KLM and Garuda Indonesia.
If you want to find a deal for a cheap holiday to Bali, then try to avoid travelling during the busy months of July and August and during the Easter and Christmas/New Year period as these are very popular with Europeans.
The climate in Bali
One of the biggest reasons people travel to Bali is its tropical climate, meaning that the weather will remain consistent for most of the year, with temperatures between 30 and 32 degrees Celsius.
Bali doesn’t have definitive seasons like we’re used to in the UK, but rather the monsoon season from November to March,when the island sees heavy rainfall. Conversely, the dry season is during April to October, where there are few days of rainfall and less humidity. These months are ideal for a holiday to Bali, when you can go snorkeling, diving and hiking.
The Best things to do in Bali
Bali’s Best Beaches
Kuta Beach: Close to Bali’s airport is the city of Kuta. Its beach is one of the most raucous spots for a party on the white sands until sunrise. Speaking of which, the sunsets here are worth the trip alone -, particularly during December. Sure, it’s not the hidden treasure you might be looking for but it’s great to join the crowd for a night or two!
Seminyak Beach: On Bali’s west coast lies Seminyak Beach. This somewhat upscale beach is home to some of the island’s most luxurious resorts. Here you’ll also find plenty of boutique shops and high-end restaurants. Set up a bean bag and let the day drinking begin!
Nusa Dua Beach: If you’re travelling with the little ones, you will probably want to avoid Bali’s more hedonistic spots. Nusa Dua in the south part of the island is a great option. Along with powder-white sands and immaculate lawns, you’ll find the all-inclusive hotels and plenty of resorts with kids’ clubs. It’s a great spot for watersports and kid-friendly restaurants.
Jimbaran Beach: Jimbaran Beach on Bali’s southwestern coast will provide you with a truly delicious seafood meal. In fact, a meal in a local restaurant is a quintessential part of visiting this side of the island! What makes this beach special is the unbroken coral reef so you can go surfing with greater ease.
Bedugal and Ulun Danu Temple
One of Bali’s most well-known landscapes is the water temple of Ulun Danu in Bedugal. This Hindu temple on the shores of Bratan Lake is dedicated to the Goddess of Water. To reach this stunning site, you can travel to Ubud and take a scooter or arrange a day trip.
Mount Batur is found in North Bali. This stunning sight features a hude caldera and summit that lies over 1700m above sea level. The best way to enjoy this spectacular volcano is by rising two hours before dawn and begin your ascent to the top of Mount Batur to watch the sun rise. Pure magic.
No trip to Bali is complete without a visit to the famous Sacred Monkey Forest in Ubud. After paying a small entry fee, you will be free to explore the forest where the Balinese long tailed monkeys roam free! Hold onto your belongings…
Off the Southeast coast Bali is the paradisaic island os Nusa Lembongan. This island is perfect for a day or snorkelling and diving – as you can see multicoloured fish, manta rays and sea turtles.
