Weather in Bali December 2013


Me and my family will be staying in Bali for 2 weeks from the 17th of December, I have been checking the weather and looks like it will be stormy lots of the time we are there. Just wondering do the storms pass quickly in Bali or do they stay most of the day?

More often than not, we have found they have passed within an hour or two, but there's always exceptions on some days and that's when you can visit museums, galleries, go shopping, or have a very lazy, long lunch somewhere.

Hi Penguinapple!

The rain in Bali is "warm" compared to any non tropic country! People who are swimming in the hotel pool continue to do so. If you are out and about when a downpour occurs, duck into the nearest cafe/restaurant and have a drink and watch everyone else caught in the rain, until it passes!

Most hotels provide an umbrella in each room for the guests to use, take it with you if the sky looks "dodgy".

Have been to Bali for nearly 30 Christmas/New Years and only twice has the weather been miserable! Once the wind just blew and blew and the other it poured non stop for about 3 days!!! Everyone and everywhere was well and truly waterlogged!

The downpours are short lived, the sky show of the lightning is spectacular especially at night!

I am sure you will have a fun time!

Yep nothing an umbrella and Havianas won't fix and the storms are often at night and quite lovely to listen to when in bed.

We were there last December. Generally we found the rain arrived early to mid afternoon. More often than not, it cleared within an hour. It always made the perfect excuse for us to stop for a drink. We still had plenty of sunshine, enought to get a little sunburn one day!

The only word of warning......it is very very humid in December.

We have spent two Xmas New Years in Bali.

It is rainy season so yes expect downpours. New usually make the most of it when the sun is shining and lay by the pool.

Then when the rain comes you can shop or eat or stop for a drink.

It did rain a lot but usually not for long. Still plenty of sunshine in between

And let's face it any time in Bali is great
