Bali, the ultimate winter sun island in Indonesia, ranks as one of the most picturesque destinations in the world. Following are some important tips for those booking tickets on flights to this paradise to help make the holiday hassle-free.


Bali, an incredibly scenic destination in Indonesia, is home to pristine sandy beaches, winter sunshine as well as delectable cuisines both local and international. It is therefore no wonder that very few tickets on cheap flights are available for those planning holiday to this remarkably scenic destination. Following are some key aspects one should bear in mind before booking all inclusive holidays to Bali.

Choosing the Travel Expert
Of late, the market has been flooded by numerous “experts” who claim to specialise in specific destinations. Though many of these are quite good and provide deals on the flights and accommodations, it is best to choose a travel agent who has been around for a while. Talking to people in the know such as friends who have visited Bali earlier is also important to make the most of your holiday. Additionally, it is better not to wait till the last moment as the prices of package tour components such as air tickets are bound to increase drastically as the time for departure comes closer.

Best Time to Visit and What to Wear
There are two seasons of note in Bali – the rainy season from October to April and the dry season from May to September. The dry periods are the peak season hence flights are packed with holidaymakers, but the availability of air tickets tends to improve towards the end of September. Many of those seeking deals on hotels and flights prefer to visit during the beginning or the end of wet weather, but rains might decide to play spoilsport for such vacation plans.

Temperatures in Bali are relatively high round the year hence summer clothes such as T-shirts made from light natural fabrics are preferable along with light weight denims. Use of sunglasses, hats/caps and sun block are a must because it can be quite sunny even during the wet season. While visiting religious sites like temples, ensure that you are adequately dressed so as not to hurt the religious sentiments of the locals.

Choosing Your Accommodations
Planning early can save you a lot while providing you with that perfect view of the sea and Bali’s lush greenery. Being a tourist hotspot, the island is home to various leading resorts and hotels, many of which have their own private beaches and serve tourists from round the world. When booking with a travel agent they might even be able to get you one of the prime seaside villas at the hotel of choice. Of course, it is not guaranteed, but travel agents have better resources at their disposal as compared to the average tourist reserving flights to the island of Bali. Some of the leading resorts for those seeking luxury include The Legian, The Oberoi, Anantara Seminyak Resort and Regent.

Stay Healthy
An all inclusive holiday package may include a lot of goodies, but the onus of remaining healthy still lies on the traveller. For starters most of those who book air tickets to the island forget that tropical areas feature waterborne diseases, hence drinking bottled water during the trip is always a good idea. Some even suggest the use of bottled water while brushing teeth and though it might seem paranoid, following the practice may well turn out to be beneficial in the long run. In terms of cuisine, Balinese dishes are not overly spicy and most hotels bland it down to suit the palate of visiting foreigners. However, having cheap road-side food is definitely not a good idea due to the hygiene issue. These are some small bits of information that one should keep in mind before booking air tickets to reach Bali.
