💜 Is tipping required in Bali? Tipping etiquette is similar to the US in Bali. You should tip if you feel the service was good and generally 10-15% is a good amount.
☀️ Best time to Visit: The best time to visit Bali is during the dry season, which typically runs from April to September. Avoid the rainy season from October to March.

Hidden Gems in Bali
Secret Places to discover in Bali!
Bali has so many Instagram hotspots but there are also many hidden gems you can find too. That’s the best part of exploring this beautiful island. A few times, I stumbled upon a hidden gem just by opening up google maps and seeing oh there’s a waterfall or a rice terrace on the map, I’ve never heard of. That’s how I discovered Bayad Waterfall and Banjar Mancingan Rice Terrace. In the photo on the left, this is Tembeling Beach and Forest in Nusa Penida. It was a bit hard to get to, but that’s what makes for the best hidden gems. The dramatic cliffs and beautiful landscape was well worth the trek and escape from the many crowds in Nusa Penida.
