TRAVEL TIME

Bali knows, due to the monsoon winds, only 2 seasons: Rainy season and dry season. The dry season is from April to October partly until December. Bali lies south of the equator and therefore at this time it is "winter" and the "coldest" month is August. The thermometer climbs to about 28°C during this time. In the mountains it is with about 10°C it is less pleasantly cool, in the evenings sometimes even cold. The sun shines almost every day and there is almost never rain during this time. In the rainy season it often rains at night or early in the morning, then often violently, so that that the streets are not only in Kuta under water! With the rain comes the strong wind, which then also stirs up the sea. A vacation in the rainy season does not fall in any case completely into the "water", Who does not want to worship the sun every day, can definitely plan a Bali vacation in the rainy season. The Sehens-würdigkeiten enjoy themselves in this time also at substantially less visitors.  

EAT AND DRINK

Restaurants are available in some places of our stay in different price ranges. A dinner can be had from 2 to 10 EUR and more. Often there are typical dishes, with rice, chicken and fish dominating the menus. Suckling pig is a particular specialty of the island, but pizza and pasta are not uncommon either. Drinks such as Coca Cola, Sprite, exotic fruit juices, water and also beer are available everywhere, even on tour. Fruits such as bananas, mango, papaya, oranges, jackfruit, avocado, pineapple, durian, passion fruit, sour sack, etc.. are very popular with our guests and, depending on the season, are available almost everywhere.
