Best Time to Visit Indonesia
The climate of Indonesia is tropical maritime and the weather tends to be fairly uniform throughout the year. However, the best time to visit the country remains the dry months of May to September. These dry months also constitute the peak travel months in the country. The favourable weather and pleasant climatic conditions beget surging crowds and sky-rocketing prices during this time of the year. It makes sense to book flight tickets and accommodations to the country well in advance, if planning holidays during this time of the year. The rainy months of December to February are best avoided.
