Bali has a tropical monsoon climate. There are two seasons - dry (May to September/October) and wet (October/November to April). The Monsoon brings heavy showers and high humidity during the wet season. The months of June to September are the driest months and humidity is not a factor.
When to fly to Denpasar
June to September is peak season in Denpasar. Most visitors take cheap flights to Denpasar during this time. Schools are out, European tourists take their holidays during these months. The New Year is also a peak time (Australian holidays).
The wet season (October to March) is, in general, the low season. However, you'll find some intrepid travellers, who snap up the cheaper flights to Denpasar and cheaper accommodation rates. December and January are the wettest months.
Getting around Denpasar
The centre of Denpasar is easily covered on foot. Taxis are cheap and readily available. It's best to settle on a fare before you set off, to avoid any nasty shocks later on. Bemos are small vans with set routes that set off when they are full. It may take a while for bemos to fill up so taking a taxi may be a quicker - and more comfortable - option. Understanding the routes that bemos take may be something best left to locals too. Australians can drive in Bali as long as they bring their International Driving Licence.
