I thought Australia had too many public holidays. Well I guess not. Indonesia has more.

  • 9 Mar –  Mouloud – Birth of the Prophet
  • 10 Apr –   Good Friday

  • 21 May –  Ascension.
  • 17 Aug –  Indonesian Independence Day

    Interesting post! What would you consider to be the best time to travel to Bali for a ‘beach’ holiday?

    Hi Cameron,

    Any time is good for a beach holiday in Bali. The rainy season is from November to March and could put a dampener (pardon the pun) of some of your activities. If you can, avoid Nyepi day. Everything closes that day. Even the airport.
