Tourists, Travelers & Adventure-seekers…
Om swastiastu. Welcome to our October issue!
October weather starts to warm with rainfall amounts also increasing. Average temperatures on the island are 27°C, with typical lows of 23°C and highs of 31°C. October starts to feel more like the rainy season, though rain fall is usually quite low. Average sunshine is 9 hours – the second highest amount all year.
A reminder to our readers that the Bali government is now enforcing sanctions for those not wearing face masks in public areas. Please be considerate to others and help to reduce the spread of Covid-19. We urge you to continue to respect local health regulations and others at all times.
The following is the latest information regarding travel to and from Bali. Please note that rules regarding travel can change at any time. Please check with your travel provider for up to date regulations before planning any trip.
All international arrivals in Bali (DPS) must be in possession of a negative Covid-19 PCR test result issued within 14 days of arrival. Domestic arrivals at DPS require a negative rapid test (or PCR) result issued within 14 days of arrival. All travelers to Bali must also present this completed form located here.
The major Indonesian airlines are flying limited domestic schedules. Many conditions and restrictions are in place. Please check airline web sites for requirements prior to booking travel.
For those visiting Bali, there continue to be many great deals at hotels and properties across the island. Many properties are offering a version of a “pay now/ stay later” packages offering bargains and flexibility for savvy travelers. Head over to our Hot Deals section to check out a great re-opening offer at the Hard Rock Hotel in Kuta.
In our Don’t Miss section, read about another unique Balinese tradition called Perang Tipat Bantal. Dating back to 1337, this traditional ‘war’ is related to agricultural life and is intended as an expression of gratitude for the abundant harvest.
Check out our What’s New in Bali section for some great specials at the pool and the Spa at Courtyard by Marriott Bali Seminyak Resort.
We strongly recommend taking advantage of these times and visiting somewhere you haven’t been before. With much less traffic on the island these days, getting to most places is a breeze. You may never be able to enjoy these quiet roads, sites and properties like this again, so get out there and enjoy it!
Also check out our Come Back to Bali (CBB) website where we bring you the best current hospitality offers. Our goal to help stimulate tourism post pandemic by highlighting where the best deals are here on the Island of the Gods.
