The small island of Bali has much more to offer than meets the eye. In today's article we will try to prove to you that your vacation in Bali should last at least a month. And we will share valuable information about seasons, prices and rental housing.

What to do in Bali for a month?

Most tourists know only a few things about Bali. Among them are beaches, villas and, perhaps, rice fields. Of course, you definitely need to have time to enjoy all this during your vacation. But what else can you do here during this month?
Explore the island's culture

Bali has a very rich and diverse culture, deep religion and very interesting art. Literally every village in Bali has a temple, so you can study the traditions of the island every day. And if you don't know where to start, check out our top temples in Bali.
Explore the local nature

We are back again to the amazing nature of Bali, which is not limited to the beaches. During your month on the island, you should definitely try climbing the local volcanoes and mountains. Of course, not all of them are suitable for beginners. But you can start with relatively low ones. Read about all the mountains in Bali in our article.
Get calm and relaxation

Allow yourself to relax and let go of stress. Take as much time as you want for yourself: go for a massage or yoga, or silently observe beautiful nature and listen to birdsong.
Enjoy the beautiful days

There are two seasons in Bali: dry and rainy (we'll talk about them in more detail below). Each season has beautiful fine days that you want to spend on the beach. Catch them and go to wild or unpopular beaches where there are far fewer tourists.
Try local food

Be sure to try not only familiar dishes, but also masterpieces of local cuisine. Many tourists find a real gastronomic paradise on the island.
Learn surfing and water sports

The island attracts fans of surfing and other water sports. There are conditions here for both professionals and beginners. In a month you can significantly improve your skills. If you want to know a little more about surfing in Bali, read our article.
Local markets and shopping

Be sure to visit the Ubud market. There you will find a lot of local food, clothing and paraphernalia. The locals who sell at the market generally speak good English, and they also love to bargain. Use this to get the best price on souvenirs.
Meet the locals

You can communicate with local residents not only at local markets. The Balinese people are known for their friendliness and hospitality. Try to get one of the locals to talk. You will definitely learn something new about the life of the island and, perhaps, learn about an interesting place where other tourists do not go.
Traveling to neighboring islands

Bali is located in a convenient location for traveling around Indonesia. You can go on excursions to the neighboring islands: Nusa Penida, Java, Lombok and many others.

What are the best months to fly to Bali?

Here's what you can say about the months in Bali:

Dry season

Lasts from April to October. This is the most popular time to visit Bali. At this time of year the weather is usually clear and sunny, the air temperature is pleasant and rain is rare. The sea breeze slightly softens the heat, making this time of year ideal for beach holidays and water sports. Tourist traffic is usually high, especially in July and August, so it is worth booking your accommodation in advance.


This time falls in April and October. These months usually offer the best combination of good weather and relatively low prices. Tourist traffic is less intense, and you can enjoy almost all the benefits of the island without large crowds of tourists.

Rain season

Lasts from November to March. This period is characterized by frequent rains and high humidity. But despite the rains, the island remains green and beautiful. If you don't mind cloudy and rainy weather, you will get lower prices for accommodation and fewer tourists.

Peak season

Lasts from late December to early January. At this time of year, Bali comes alive with Christmas and New Year celebrations. The tourist flow is at its peak, and hotel and airfare prices can be very high. If you are planning a trip during this time, make all your reservations in advance.

How much will it cost to live in Bali for a month?


Rental prices range from $300 to $1,500 or more per month depending on the type of housing (dorm room, apartment, villa), location (closer to the beach or inland), and season.

Restaurants and cafes in Bali offer a wide range of prices. The average food budget can range from $10 to $30 per day, depending on your preferences.

We advise you to rent a motorbike in Bali. It's quite simple and inexpensive: you only need international licenses and an amount of around $100 per month. A bike greatly simplifies getting around the island, because the streets here are quite narrow, and public transport and taxis are not suitable for everyone.
Entertainment and activities

Entertainment expenses may vary depending on your interests. These could be excursions, hikes, surfing lessons, yoga retreats and much more. Expect $100 or more per month if you participate in active entertainment.
Healthcare and Insurance

We recommend having health insurance. The cost depends on your age and insurance plan, but costs start at about $30 per month.
Other expenses

Electricity, water, Internet and mobile communications will also require additional costs, approximately $50-100 per month.
Souvenirs and additional expenses

If you plan to buy souvenirs or regularly visit local shops and markets, factor this into your budget.
Adding up all the expenses, you will realize that you will need approximately $1,000 - $2,500 per month to live comfortably in Bali.

Where to rent accommodation in Bali?

Many tourists, planning their vacation in Bali, try to use social networks: Facebook, telegram, etc. to find landlords. However, this method entails many risks: there are many scammers in the Bali real estate rental market.

Another category of tourists is trying to use Airbnb and Of course, these services are much more reliable than social networks, but they offer rentals for too short a period.

That is why Baliving exists - a service for selecting housing for long-term rentals in Bali. Baliving offers secure payment, a large catalog of housing with only verified landlords, and, of course, a selection service according to your preferences.
