"Selamat Datang di Bali" - Welcome to Bali


Bali is so picturesque that you could be fooled into thinking it Barong Dance, Baliwas a painted backdrop: rice paddies trip down hillsides like giant steps, volcanoes soar through the clouds, the forests are lush and tropical, and the beaches are lapped by the warm waters of the Indian Ocean.

But the paradise gloss has been manufactured and polished by the international tourist industry rather than by the Balinese themselves - who don't even have a word for paradise in their language - and it pays scant regard to the political and economic reality of life on Bali.

Temperatures in summer can reach as high as 35C and in winter as low as 23C. The wettest months of the year are between November and April.

When to go:

Just considering the weather, the cooler dry season from April to October is the best time to visit Bali. The rest of the year is more humid, more cloudy and has more rainstorms. The European summer holidays bring the biggest crowds in July, August and early September .

Clothing:

Due to the hot humid climate light clothes made of natural fiber materials such as cotton should be worn. The wearing of clothing made from artificial fiber materials such as nylon is not recommended. Sweaters may be required at night during the cool season or if visiting the mountainous areas.

 

Facts for the Traveler:

  • Visas: Visitors from USA, Canada, UK, Australia, New Zealand, and most of Western Europe don't need a visa to enter Indonesia provided you have a ticket out of the country and your passport has at least six months validity. At the time of arrival, you will be issued with a tourist card which is valid for a 60-day stay. Keep the card with your passport as you'll have to hand it back when you leave the country. It is not possible to get an extension on a tourist visa, unless there is a medical emergency or you have to answer legal charges. There are visas, particularly a business visitor's visa, which may be valid for a longer period. The immigration office is in Denpasar. If you have to visit this office, make sure you wear your most respectable clothes.

It is now confirmed that the 14 additional countries slated for visa on arrival facility in Indonesia (TTG Asia, July 8 issue) will be able to do so from August 1 2005. This brings to 36 the number of countries eligible for the facility. The 14 countries are Austria, Belgium, India, Ireland, Kuwait, Luxembourg, Maldives, Egypt, Portugal, Qatar, China, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Spain.While the cost of visa remains at US$10 and US$25, the validity is now 07 and 30 days.

  • Shopping: Bali is famous for it's woodcarving and sculptures; silver and gold jewelry, woven cloth, sarongs, traditional and realist paintings, bone and coconut shell carvings, antiques, basket wares and masks. More recently garment manufacture has increased and excellent designer garments are available cheaply. Tailoring is cheap and quick. Except in fixed-price stores & restaurants, shopping is done by bargaining, the national sport. Only one rule, both buyer and seller should end up satisfied, and not lose face! It can be fun.

  • Electricity: Most hotels use 220 volts, 50 cycles and a round, two-pronged slim plug. Bathroom shaver plugs usually have a transformer switch. We suggest taking an adaptor for your appliance.

Prices not valid for visitors from Europe and Japan, as prices will be quoted in Euros or Japanese Yen on request.
