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. Getting downtownThere are several ways of getting to the city from Denpasar International Airport (DPS). These include buses, taxis, shuttles, courtesy shuttles provided by hotels and limousines. There are also several car-rental companies with desks at the airport.
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 fixed 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.
