Simply getting to either place is the biggest hurdle (and it’s a low one at that). And as Bali and Lombok reward the spontaneous traveller, they also reward the traveller who plans. This is especially the case in Bali – you can stay at exquisite places, experience unique aspects of the culture and tailor your trip to a remarkable degree with advance work. If you want to make time for real discoveries or just discover some good bargains, you can reap the rewards of forethought. Whatever your travel style, you’ll find the real obstacles to independent travel in this part of the world are few.

Just 8 degrees south of the equator, Bali has a tropical climate – the average temperature hovers around 30°C (around 85°F) all year. Direct sun feels incredibly hot, especially in the middle of the day. In the wet season, from October through March, the humidity can be very high and oppressive. The almost daily tropical downpours come as a relief but then pass quickly. Clouds and mist usually envelop the slopes of the major volcanoes in Bali and Lombok, so those iconic postcard shots might be hard to come by.
