What is Bali like right now?
“Bali is certainly showing signs of becoming busy once again. With each day there are more people enjoying the beautiful Bail sunsets around Canggu, Legian and Seminyak beaches and amazing Sunrises along Sanur Beach.
Have restaurants reopened?
Most leading restaurants and Beach Clubs have reopened, with the lovely Indonesian staff so happy to welcome you like a long lost family member.
See our guide to the best restaurants in Bali. We have updated this list in June 2023.
Is it easy to get around?
Traffic is getting busier with more tourists arriving so if you can walk somewhere, I would suggest you do that! When touring Bali, get an early start as the morning traffic is not so bad however allow extra time for the return trip back.
Travel Tip – When booking your accommodation in Bali we highly suggest booking through an agency as properties you see online may not be open or may no longer look like the images displayed. To avoid disappointment when you arrive, it is safer to book with an agent. Our Villa Getaways agents regularly inspect our villas to ensure the highest standards. We want you to fully enjoy your long awaited Bali Getaway.
Is it difficult to enter Bali?
Not at all. Most Covid requirements have been relaxed and as of June 2023 you no longer need to provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination to enter Indonesia or travel domestically. Check the visa requirements which apply to you before planning your holiday.
