Ideal for all kinds of water activities, April through October is considered the best time to visit Indonesia. The weather is stunning, so you can explore magnificent Mount Rinjani National Park or climb Mount Borneo. The country sees heavy short downpours and high humidity between November and March. However, this is an excellent option for discovering a collection of temples, as they are much quieter during these months. In the low season, you can try famous smelly durian and scare the demons away during Perang Api in March. All in all, Indonesia is warm and mostly sunny throughout the year with its tropical climate.
