Indonesia has just two seasons – rainy and dry – with average temperatures of 28°C throughout the year thanks to its position on the Equator. There are regional variations however, and when to visit will likely depend on your travel plans. Typically, the best time to travel to Indonesia is during the dry months (April to October), when the days are sunny and perfect for island hopping and beach lounging. If you’re keen on diving and snorkelling, or if you plan to climb one of the country’s volcanos, then the dry season is also recommended. That said, during the rainy season – November through till March – Indonesia is still a rewarding place to travel. Rain usually only lasts for a couple of hours, and during these months there are often fewer visitors at attractions such as temple sites. If you need an escape from the humid conditions, venture up to the highlands where the climate is much cooler.
