De Republiek Indonesië is de grootste archipel ter wereld: een weelderige caleidoscoop met meer dan 13.000 tropische eilanden – sommigen nog steeds onbewoond en naamloos. Indonesië strekt zich duizenden mijlen uit langs de evenaar van het Maleisische schiereiland naar Nieuw-Guinea in het oosten.
Breng een bezoek aan een historische tempel en maak een praatje met de vriendelijke eilandbewoners. Zelfs in vrij afgelegen gebieden, kunt u waarschijnlijk wel een lokale inwoner vinden die een beetje Engels spreekt. Wandelpaden zijn er in overvloed, wat het eenvoudig maakt om panoramische vergezichten te verkennen en te genieten van de mooiste zonsondergangen op aarde.
Elke dag brengt een nieuw avontuur. Zeilend door de wateren van Bali, ontdekt u de ene spectaculaire ankerplaats of haven na de andere. Eilandhoppen is nog nooit zo eenvoudig geweest – en zo leuk!

Currency Conversion: Currency conversion is typically very easy in places like Bali and Java. However, it can be a bit more complicated and challenging in more out-of-the-way places like Sulawesi and almost impossible in Flores, Nusa Lembongan and the Gili islands. Make sure that your bills are in very good condition. Traveler’s checks are changed at a slightly lower rate, but they are widely accepted if they are provided by American Express. Exchange booths offer better rates than banks, but you risk being scammed if you use them. Our guides will show you the best alternative based on the locations you are visiting.
Credit Cards: American Express, MasterCard and Visa credit cards as well as Visa International prepaid debit cards are accepted by major hotels, restaurants and shops. But elsewhere keep in mind that credit and prepaid debit cards may not be accepted. Also remember that credit card fraud is unfortunately quite common in Indonesia. We advise you, if possible, to limit your ATM withdrawals. (ATMs are widely available on Java and Bali and in the tourist centers of Lombok).
Vaccines: Vaccinations prior to your stay in Bali are not required. However vaccinations against hepatitis A and B, meningitis, and typhoid fever may be recommended. Having older vaccines-diphtheria, pertussis (whooping cough) and tetanus-updated might also be wise. In all cases, vaccinations prior to travel are a personal choice and an individual responsibility. Bali is a reasonably safe place with respect to your health, if you take some precautions with food, water and sun. Those living in the U.S. may wish to visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) web page on health Information for travelers to Indonesia.
Sun Protection: Always use protection from the sun. The sun is especially strong in Bali and other tropical destinations. Wearing a cap or hat is recommended. Sun blocks and lotions are easy to find locally, but if you have products that you really like, you are advised to take them with you.
Medical Care: Sanitary conditions in Bali are close to Western standards in many places. But price generally dictates the level of cleanliness and care. Some private clinics serve only tourists. Their equipment meets international standards, and the prices they charge may be higher for that reason. It is very rare for tourists to suffer anything more severe than diarrhea of short duration (due to the change in diet) or a cold (be careful with running air conditioning or a fan overnight) or sunburn.
Het weer in Indonesië is warm het hele jaar door, 25˚-32˚ Celsius. Het is koeler en droger van juni tot september. En het weer is aanzienlijk natter van januari tot maart. Vergeleken met de meeste tropische bestemmingen is op Bali het weer zeer aangenaam, met een wind die nooit stopt het eiland te beroeren en de hitte te verlagen. In tegenstelling tot de moesson periode op het vasteland van Azië, is de regen op Bali nooit langdurig (en valt meestal ’s nachts of in de late namiddag). De zon komt op om 6.00 uur en gaat onder om 18.00 uur, het hele jaar door.
