Bali islands approximately have 4,25 million  inhabitants of which around  90% are Hindu Balinese adherents since many centuries ago. The remaining having come from neighbour islands of Java, Lombok, Madura, Sumatra and from many other parts of Indonesia and beyond in search of employment, retired and business.


Bali lies just 8.6(965 km) south of the equator. As such the weather is tropical - consistently hot and sunny. Days are almost universally 12 hours long with sunrise is approximately 6:10 a.m.; sunset at 6:30 p.m. depending on the time of year. The daytime temperature averages between 27 C to 32C (80F to 90F) in the southern lowlands (the main tourist venues). Humidity is quite high - a sticky 75% to 100% in the wet season, so often  it feels much hotter. Average temperature in the mountains is between 20C to 25; C (70f to 80 F). At night the mountains can get downright chilly - so bring a sweater if you plan to overnight there.


Bali's tropical monsoon climate has two distinct seasons; dry (May to September) and wet (October to April). Monsoon refers to the wind, not the rain. However even in the wet monsoon there's a better than even chance that it will be sunny for a good part of the day. Weather wise May, June and July are generally considered the best as it has the best breeze and bright days almost daily.
