Indonesia has two distinct seasons but can vary a bit depending on if you are visiting in the Northern or Southern region.
The wet season typically begins in October or November and will run during December, Janu-ary, February, and March. During this time, the average temperatures range between a low of 73.4 °F and a high of 84.2 °F. Although it is the wet season, it normally doesn’t rain throughout the day. Instead, you can expect thunderstorms that will last for a few hours typically during the early morning or late in the evenings. Make sure to pack an umbrella, rain poncho, and water-proof shoes. It’s also good to have a sweater for the cooler mornings and evenings.
The dry season starts typically starts in April and includes the months of May, June, July, Au-gust, and September. This is the best time to visit with frequent hot, sunny days and great visi-bility underwater. This is also peak season where places like Bali, Lombok, and the Gili Islands are flooded with tourists and prices increase. During these months the temperature ranges from a low of 73.4 °F to a high of 87.8 °F. Make sure to wear plenty of sunscreen and bring a hat and sunglasses. Dress in light, moisture-wicking clothing. Shorts and a teeshirt or tank are the most popular choices amongst male and female travelers.
