Indonesia is a summer destination, best visited between April and October when the weather’s perfect for island hopping, snorkeling and beach relaxation. Bridging the Equator, Indonesia is hot all year round, with the only change coming between November and March when the country sees widespread rain; particularly in the south. Although the rain may scupper your plans to relax by the beach, it does bring some pleasant changes. Indonesia’s rich collection of temples are often quieter at this time of year, making exploration much more rewarding. The scenery is beautiful, and if you venture into the highlands the temperatures are cooler, which can be a welcome change from the humid conditions on lower ground.

May and June are great times to visit Indonesia as the sun is shining, rain is minimal and you beat the crowds traveling over during the school vacations. You also may be able to take advantage of some shoulder season promotions.
