The Indonesian climate is equatorial, hot and humid, with a rainy season between October and April when the humidity level can reach 75%. The hot and humid season peaks in January/February. Visiting Indonesia is obviously more pleasant during the dry season, between May and October. Bali is also very popular in January, while Indonesians play tourist in June/July, when the resorts are overrun, so you may prefer May and June or September if you want to enjoy the best conditions.
