Nyepi

Nyepi is a day of silence, self-reflection and meditation which marks the Balinese New Year. No one is allowed to work; traffic is non-existent and everybody stays indoors. The day before, Melasti, is very different, however. Amongst drums and merry shouting, villagers dress in their finest clothes, make their way to the sea and give offerings or make sacrifices to their Gods. Nyepi falls on a different day each year depending on the Balinese calendar.

Bali Arts Festival

If you’re looking for culture on your holiday, the annual Bali Arts Festival will undoubtedly interest you. As one of the main highlights in the calendar, this is a month-long event showcasing the stunning art and architecture on the island. Taking place across June and July, the festival starts with an opening parade that includes a series of illuminating stage performances and traditional dances.

Independence Day

Indonesia’s Independence Day falls on August 17th, the day when they achieved independence from the Dutch in 1945. The Balinese celebrate by putting red and white decorations inside their houses and a national flag outside. Ceremonies and festivals also take place across the country, while neighborhoods join together to play games and take part in competitions.

Galungan and Kuningan

Galungan, like Nyepi, is one of Bali’s biggest festivals over the year. It is held every 210 days and marks the time of the year when the spirits of ancestors are believed to have visited the earth. The Balinese celebrate Galungan by offering a sacrifice of food and flowers to the spirits at local temples. People also dress to the nines in their finest clothing, visit friends and family and tuck in to local food. Kuningan is 10 days later and commemorates the end of the holiday season. This is when the spirits are believed to return to heaven.

When it comes to cuisine, Bali serves up an assortment of delicious meat, fish and vegetable dishes that are not to be missed.

One particular dish well worth seeking out is Sate Lilit, a meal of skewered pork marinated in coconut milk and other spices. Other authentic meat dishes to sample include Babi Guling (roasted suckling pig stuffed with traditional spices) and Bebek Betutu (chili and garlic stuffed duck, steamed and wrapped in coconut tree bark).

If you prefer fish, then you’ll be delighted to hear that Bali provides fantastic seafood dishes too, such as Sambal Udang (prawns in spicy sauce) and Bumbi Bali Fish, which offers a rich flavour of tuna in coconut milk.

Bali also offers superb vegetarian options like Gado-Gado, which is a traditional mix of vegetables and rice with peanut sauce, and Urab, a fresh, crispy vegetable salad coated with coconut dressing and placed on a Cassava leaf.

Best Time To Visit Bali

Bali’s proximity to the equator means it enjoys a hot tropical climate throughout the year with average temperatures ranging between 26-28°C. Although the seasons aren’t as clearly defined as other areas April to September is generally considered the dry season and sees lower average rainfall than the other months.
