The small and exclusive island hideaway of Nihi Sumba Island is an extraordinary archipelago
Straddling the equator, Indonesia tends to have a fairly even climate year-round. Rather than four seasons, Indonesia has two – dry (between May to September) and wet (between October to April) – and there are no extremes of temperature between winter and summer. In most parts of Indonesia, the wet season falls between October and April and the dry season between May and September. December and January see Bali at its most humid and rain tends to come in sudden tropical downpours, but it can also rain for more prolonged periods.

Also included is a full day tour of Bali’s central highlands where you will visit a local market to sample local delicacies before seeing one of Bali’s most famous water temples.
