Must Know Facts

Best Time to Visit

The ideal time to visit Bali is during the summer months of June, July, and August. The opportunity to escape to the southern hemisphere’s winter months is just a little too tempting for tens of thousands of Australians who grab short. No matter at any time of the year, expect Bali to be bustling. The island only goes from busier to busier. Although Bali is warm and comfortable throughout the year, the islands have two distinct seasons: wet and dry. Explore Bali with our International tour packages.

January is typically Bali’s wettest month, though rainfall is not usually constant, you can expect hot sunny days with average temperature of 26 degree Celsius, but this will likely be interrupted with brief tropical downpours. Most of the visitors find that May, June and September are the best time to visit this island, when conditions remain warm and sunny, but there fewer crowds in popular beach resorts.

History & Culture

Bali is considerably more than only a tropical setting taken cover behind a mass of traveler affected revolution. The island is one of authentic quality and pride. The historical backdrop of Bali can be followed to the pre-memorable times of the Stone and Neolithic ages. Towns in the north and western locales, including Cecik and Sembiran, have uncovered interesting curios which have been cell based dated as a few a great many years old. 

Indeed, even in its initial years, Bali was a critical exchanging goal for different islands in Southeast Asia. Balinese society was vigorously impacted by the East Java culture. The Hindu Majapahit Empire took power of in the late 1200s. By 1343, a settlement was built up, and the island turned out to be predominantly Hindu.

The Balinese culture and Hindu society are likely are influencing pretty much every part of life on the island. The one of a kind blend between Hindu-Dharma and local traditions has lead to an immense assortment of workmanship and a long convention of specialists and bosses. 

Perfect works of art of craftsmanship can without much of a stretch be found in each edge of Bali. Bali's culture can in any case be felt all over the place; from exhibition halls to hotel rooms and obviously, the temples, where Balinese respect their ancestors and the soul world, and perform religious customs dependent on the old Balinese common sight. Be a part of Balinese culture with our Bali holiday packages.

kopi luwak coffee
Kopi luwak or civet coffee, is a traditional Balinese coffee that includes partially digested coffee cherries, eaten and defecated by the Asian palm civet. 

When the cats (civets) eat the coffee berries, fermentation of the coffee beans occurs in the cat’s intestine. During this digestion process, the cat’s proteolytic enzymes seep into the coffee beans, thus creating shorten peptide as well as an abundance of amino acids. This is what gives this coffee its unique flavor and aroma. So during this entire digestive process, the beans are transformed into the Kopi Luwak which many coffee drinkers have grown to adore. This process is known to reduce the bitterness of the coffee.

Although kopi luwak is a form of processing rather than a variety of coffee, it has been named one of the most expensive coffees in the world, with retail prices reaching €550 / US$700 per kilogram.

In addition, Subak is based on culture, and that is why people who live in Jatiluwih respect it as the irrigation system keeps togetherness.

Happy Travellers

Flamingo Team Helped us In All Steps!
Flamingo Team Helped us In All Steps!

Flamingo Team Helped us In All Steps!

This is Vivek and Brinda Rajyaguru. We have planned our memorable honeymoon to Bali with help of flamingo and here I would like to share my feedback.
As all great teams are made of great individuals, flamingo team helped us in all steps. Mr Abhishek, Mr Himanshu, Ms Sheetal and Mr Amit helped us at each and every step of the process. They have been very helpful and easy to contact at any time during the trip. 
Trip has been planned exceptionally well and the STS team (guide and driver) at Bali was equally good at their job. They were flexible enough when required and made sure we enjoy and cover as many sights as possible within the time we have. We have been provided with “what to do” and “what not to do” guides before the tour which was very helpful. Being a foodie, I loved the idea of providing a list of Indian restaurants in Bali.  
My first experience of water rafting: Good guides and wonderful experience.
Water sports: Great activities, must do.
Romantic dinner at Grand mirage: Sea side dinner always earns you couple of browny points
Spa: Very relaxing experience after all the activities
Overall, an experience worth cherishing for time to come.
One suggestion or idea: Spa is couple of hour activity, if it can be merged with some other activity on some other day, you can give one additional free day. i.e., water sports and spa on same day so people can have one more day free making it two free days to explore other sites.

Again, thank you very much for all the support and help to make our honeymoon a special one.

It Was Such A Fabulous Trip!
It Was Such A Fabulous Trip!

It Was Such A Fabulous Trip!

It was such a Fabulous Trip. We 4 people ( 2 couples) opted for 6 nights and 7 days stay at Ubud and Kuta respectively. Both of the accommodation facility were best as expected. We enjoyed staying and relaxing there throughout the tour. Tour was designed as per our dates and days requirements. Totally personalized trip no hurry. Perfect balance of each day including day time activity and leisure time at hotel. Our agent there at Bali was much supportive and helpful. Not a single problem of pick up and drop and in between sightseeing from the driver side. He behaved politely with us and enjoyed our company. On a full leisure last day driver helped us to plan nusa penida island trip and it was worth visiting that island. In short all thanks to Flamingo Transworld and STS tourism for this memorable trip of the lifetime. We are very grateful for this.

I Will Surely Come To Flamingo For My Next Trip

This is to give my regards to flamingo for making my honeymoon trip most memorable. We were in the bali for 7 nights. They welcomed us very gracefully. The accommodations flamingo had suggested are up to the mark. We enjoyed the stay.
Furama villa are having some insects issues due to the rainy atmosphere but over all it was very nice stay. Our stay in Holiday inn resort in baruna was very pleasant.
Candle light dinner was awesome at sadara resort. We couldn't have believed that was our real time. It was like a fairy tale. (Most important note: On our arrival at sadara resort at 9PM, we informed them that we are pure vegetarian. They have prepared everything for the east asian and european people as they are frequent visitors. They havn't done anything for vegetarian people like us but they had taken help from their indian restaurant and prepare our full dinner.
They served us full typical indian dish that was very delicious. We were surprised they had made such a dinner specially for us. They took our photos and also shared with us. What a beautiful night that was!)
Our tour guide (Mr. Wijaya) is very helpful person. Such a genuine person he is!
I recommend you to praise him by giving a best feedback to his agency.
He made an arrangement for the nusa penida tour and that was jaw dropping experience. Thank you for recommending us this island trip. 
We praise the management of flamingo and adventure Indonesia.
Overall we thank you for giving us the memories that last forever. 
We will definitely refer flamingo to our friends and families. 
I will surely come to flamingo for my next trip.
