Hi, we go to Bali each December starting about the second week. It does rain very heavily periodically but we just plan to do things indoors. It is humid. As drainage isn't maintained in Bali the roads can become flooded. Beaches and the ocean on the West coast (Kuta) can be covered in rubbish/debris. Sanur beach is better but tidal.

Your time in Bali is very limited. If you plan an itinerary based on reading the pinned posts at the top of the forum you then organise a car with driver to follow your itinerary for sightseeing. Approximately IDR600,000 or less if you bargain nicely for a day. Drivers are on the streets looking for work and you have a chat and if you're happy you book tham. Or you can get a recommended driver from TA members.

I suggest you have a look at an OTA e.g. Booking.com site as they have a filter, room photos, reviews, a map of the accommodation location. We don't know your budget, your likes or dislikes. Need to research, research. Experienced TA members are happy to help with specific questions when you have put together your itinerary and chosen your accommodation. Good luck.

It will probably rain more in Ubud than Kuta but no long range weather forecast is accurate this far out so just go and prepare for some rainy days & have a great time in Bali

Cheers Mac 😎😎

It will almost definitely rain in some part of Bali every day in December. How it will be on your days, in the areas/s you are staying is completely unknown.

wacoolgirl, most of us prefer to have a driver and discuss our plans with them. If you decide to hire one, please ask for recommendations on this thread or start a new one.
