Cheap flights to Bali
Is there a more lasting image of paradise than Bali? While just one of Indonesia's 18,307 islands, Bali stands out as one of the country's most distinctive and appealing regions. With a unique and welcoming atmosphere, Bali Island is a destination of luxury and relaxation. As one of the few places outside of India to have a Hindu majority population, Bali's language, architecture and culture stands out and begs for immersive exploration.
As the island's only international airport, Bali Island is the region's central transport hub and start and endpoint for almost all travel on the island. Whether you want to relax on one of the island's idyllic beaches, explore the region’s rich history and temple culture, or stretch out those travel aches at a world-famous yoga retreat, Denpasar Airport is the launching pad.
While Denpasar is not Bali's central attraction, the city does host a wide array of cultural highlights, with museums and temples galore. The Museum Negeri Propinsi Bali is a whirlwind tour of Bali's history and culture, with traditional artifacts like masks, tools and costumes, exemplifying the unique Balinese style.
Outside of the capital, the island hosts a wonderful array of activities to excite, inspire and invigorate. If surfing's your thing, head down south to Uluwatu, where you can ride waves in the shadow of spectacular cliffs. If you're looking for something a little more spiritual, look no further than Ubud with its yoga studios and temples. Why not get a day trip out of the city and see the gorgeous rice terraces or make friends with a macaque at the Monkey Temple? Bali lives up to its reputation as a true island paradise. Book your flights today and say goodbye to your worries.
Things to do in Bali
Bali is an island of activities. If you're looking to relax, have fun, party or explore, Bali has a range of options to invigorate your senses and your soul.
Due to its Hindu roots and the preferences of its western visitors, Bali has become a real yoga hotspot. Practitioners from all over the world come to teach here and the standard is consistently very high. Whether you're a beginner or full-fledged yogi, you’ll find something for you.
Bali's beaches are world-renowned and for good reason. These idyllic strips of sand vary in topography and atmosphere, but never in quality. If you want to find a quiet silent spot to unwind, Crystal Bay is irresistibly isolated but if surfing's your game the swell on the southern tip, around Uluwatu, is worth a trip.
Steeped in rich religiosity, Bali is home to some truly special temples. The spectacular cliff-top setting of Uluwatu Temple is awe-inspiring. Less resplendent but equally magical is the Mandala Suci Wenara Wana near Ubud. This forest temple complex serves as a sanctuary for Balinese long-tailed macaques who are famously friendly to the human visitors - make sure to hold on to your hat!
Events in Bali
A mix of tradition and modernity drives Bali's events calendar. Arts, food, religion and music are all well represented across the island and throughout the year.
Bali's distinctive culture extends to its food as much as everything else, and if you want to fully immerse yourself in the culinary traditions, the Ubud Food Festival is for you. Taking place across several venues and restaurants in Ubud, it runs over three days in April and showcases the absolute best of Balinese and Indonesian food culture.
Every June, Denpasar hosts the amazing Bali Arts Festival. Opening with a fabulous parade and championing the talent and culture of the whole island, the festival is a culture lover’s dream. You'll be surrounded by crafts, painting, music and dance that show Bali at its best.
If you're up for something a little more lively, you'll love exploring Bali's music festival scene. One annual highlight is Ultra Bali, the island's very own EDM festival, held in mid-September, it hosts a range of contemporary dance music acts from all over the globe.
Practical information about Bali
Given the tropical nature of this region, it's always worth considering the climate when you book your flights. April to October is generally considered the best time to go as there's little rain and relatively low humidity. The other half of the year is the wet season which is fine too, just make sure to pack appropriately!
Language shouldn't be a problem either. While the majority of the population speak Balinese or Indonesian, English is spoken across the island, particularly in the tourist hotspots.
The currency used on the island is the Indonesian Rupiah (RPH).
