Tours of Bali allow you to explore the island’s sandy beaches, chic hotels, stunning interior landscapes and quirky towns. Choose to spend two weeks exploring the whole island, or pair it with a holiday to other popular Indonesian spots. Speak to our Destination Specialists today and we’ll plan the ideal holiday for you.

For a four day tour of Bali, spent exploring some of its relatively undiscovered landscapes and beautiful natural features, book our Images of Bali Tour. Cycle through emerald green rice paddy fields, explore the peaceful mountains and spend time on the beach. You’ll also have the chance to explore Bali’s cultural scene, including visiting art markets where you can pick up unique pieces. If you prefer to discover a completely different landscape and some incredible creatures, our Komodo Trails tour takes you to Komodo national park. Residing on its own island is a desert like landscape which is the only natural habitat of Komodo dragons. See them basking in the sun, searching for prey and fighting on this once in a lifetime tour. You may even spot dolphins on the boat trip to the island.

Tie your tour of Bali into a greater Indonesian adventure and book our Highlights of Indonesia tour. Spend nine days exploring the temples and volcanic craters of Java, as well as its gardens and hot springs, before heading to Bali. After arriving at this beautiful island you can spend long lazy days on the beach, shop in designer malls and quirky boutiques or visit Ubud; home of art, culture and the monkey temple forest.

“When shopping in Bali, try venturing inland and avoiding the more popular coastal areas – you’ll find prices drop significantly the further you go. There are fantastic markets near Ubud and keep in mind that it’s customary to barter down prices.”

“Island-hopping is a great way of exploring. There are many local fast boat services and ferries that run throughout the day.”

Frequently Asked Questions

What do I wear in Bali?

We recommended you wear cool, loose-fitting clothes, given the humid climate of Bali. When visiting sacred sites and landmarks it’s important to remember that both men and women should cover up, from knees to shoulders, as a sign of respect. Although some sites provide sarongs or scarves to wear during your visit, we recommend that you plan ahead and dress modestly, just in case. Attire for beaches is more laid-back – just don’t forget your sunglasses.

What is the main language of Bali?

Locals in Bali will speak Balinese, which is a Malayo-Polynesian language. In popular tourist areas, however, English is widely spoken and understood.

When is the rainy season in Bali?

Bali’s tropical climate is split between two distinct seasons. Generally speaking, the dry season is from May to September, while the wet season is from October to April. Even in the wet season, however, the island will still be predominantly sunny.

Is the Bali volcano still active?

As of May 2018, local authorities have imposed a number of exclusion zones and it is advised not to travel within four kilometres of the Mount Agung crater in East Bali. Indonesia has a number of active volcanoes, and while Hayes & Jarvis do not operate tours in high-risk areas, natural phenomena cannot always be anticipated. We recommend checking media reports before travelling to areas prone to volcanic and seismic activity.

What is the main religion of Bali?

Though comprised of multiple religions, the dominant religion in Bali is Hinduism.

Can I drink the tap water in Bali?

Health and sanitation is not an issue in Bali, however, water quality may differ from one part of the island to the next. Some visitors have complained of ‘Bali Belly’. Our recommendation to avoid these health issues is to use bottled water, instead of drinking directly from the tap, to ensure your trip is trouble free.

Often referred to as the ‘Island of the Gods’, Bali’s blend of vibrant and unique culture, golden beaches, ancient temples and natural landscapes offer a breath-taking escape for sun-worshippers and culture-vultures alike.

Did you know…

• You may hear locals honking their car horns as they drive past cemeteries and across bridges – this is commonplace in Bali. It is considered a sign of respect and a way to ask the spirits’ permission to use the road.
• Balinese babies cannot touch the ground. An ancient custom dictates that Balinese babies up to three months should not touch the ground, and are considered holy. Treated like gods, it is also likely that hygiene factors into this practice.
• Mischievous monkeys take what they can get – if you visit Ubud’s Sacred Monkey Forest, be wary of unsecured items such as cameras, necklaces, and sunglasses on your head, as well as making sure any bags are properly closed.
