Bali is one of the westernmost islands of Indonesia, and is the main island within the Bali province. The island is the most popular tourist destination within Indonesia, and is well known for its highly developed arts, as well as traditional music and dance. Bali can trace its history as far back as 2000 BC when it was inhabited by the Austronesian people. The island would have its first contact with the West in the 16th century with the arrival of Portuguese traders, and later the Dutch East India Company (VOC). Today, the island is an idyllic getaway destination within the Pacific. Finding your ideal hotel in Bali can be a difficult task, but with Venere, you will have access to thousands of user submitted hotel reviews, photo galleries of hotel rooms and facilities, as well as our helpful Google maps applet.

Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Bali
Bali has a typically hot and humid climate all year round, with an average afternoon temperature of around 31°C. During the wet season from October to April, expect daily rainfall and overcast skies. The dry season lasts from May to September, with the most pleasant months from June to August. Only a small portion of the population will speak English, with the high concentration of these people focused around tourist areas; be sure to carry an pocket Indonesian reference book with you. As the temperatures can be quite intense all year round, pack plenty of light and breathable clothing, and try not to forget a potent insect repellent if you want to avoid picking up a tropical disease. Try to drink and brush your teeth with bottled water, as the local tap water contains lots of impurities. There is a very poor public transport network in Bali, so you will have to rely on cabs and bikes to get far flung attractions.
