How to get
Indonesia is in Southeast Asia. The island of Bali, where most tourists go to rest, is part of the Small Islands of the Sound and is next to the islands of Java and Lombok.
You can take a direct flight to Bali and land at the Denpasar airport. The travel time is about 15 hours, although you can also transfer in other countries.
Bali is a fairly large island, but all the resorts and the airport are at the southern tip of the island. Therefore, the transfer from the airport to the hotel will be short, from 30 to 60 minutes.
It is worth noting that the travel time from the airport to the hotel depends on how many hotels are on the bus route and the traffic situation.
The best time to travel to Indonesia is from May to October. At this time, warm and dry, the average daily air temperature is about +30 degrees Celsius. The water temperature does not fall below +27 throughout the year. The rains in Indonesia go from November to March.
You can obtain a visa at the airport upon arrival in the country. The period of validity is 30 days, and may extend for an additional 30 days. The passport must be valid for at least six months.
Take a pen with you: on the way to the plane or after landing you must complete a small migration card. Indicate the flight number, your details, including passport information, contacts, hotel, travel reason and date of departure. The card must be completed in capital letters and in English.
