When is the best time to travel to Indonesia?
Indonesia only has two seasons, the dry and the wet. The dry season usually occurs from April to September. During this time, the weather is not very humid but it is generally not as comfortable as it is during the wet season. There are still occasional rainy days in the dry season. The wet season goes from October to March, bringing with it a lot of humidity and frequent torrential downpours.
For the corporate traveler, heading to Indonesia during this wet season generally means that fares and accommodations will be cheaper. It may not be ideal for outdoor team building exercises, but a great option for groups on a budget.
