December in Bali started with constant heavy raindrops. It is embracing almost all regions with a spike of chill air, wet roads, and the earthy fresh smell after rain that we always love. At times like these, nothing beats the warmth of our loved ones, does it? The festivity of Santa coming to town is a moment worth waiting for; gift preparation, a meal feast to be devoured, falling snow, a Christmas tree sitting beautifully, waiting to be filled with miscellaneous embellishment, and Christmas jingles heard in every corner wherever we go, family gathering, and the commencement of grand prayer. On the other side of the world, the Christmas celebration is accompanied by heavy snow. But when you spend Christmas in Bali, in this case, season patterns can be quite unpredictable.

Otherwise, you can always drop in souvenir malls that offer a flat rate such as Krisna Oleh Oleh and Keranjang in Kuta.

#2 Café Hopping

Seriously, Bali has tons of cafes with diverse catchy, and insta-worthy concepts that we think you should not miss out on. You can spend Christmas in Bali by visiting those cafes. Happened to be staying at one of our Bali villas for rent in the Uluwatu Area? We recommended three breakfast vegetarian cafes in Bali that provide big brekkie at low price points. Simply check this article here. Also, a café and rain? They make a great combo. Don’t forget, a warm conversation with your loved ones is a comforting addition too.

#3 Chilling Out at Bali Villas Rental of Your Favorite

Bali Villas and any accommodations on the island would be very packed at this time of the year. So, reserve early to secure a Bali villa rental of your favorite. We might be biased but Bali villas for rent indeed match a group staycation. You can have more spacious and more complete amenities while being with one another in one villa building. Also, you can engage in their private pool and have a group play and swim-off. Another way is relaxing on one of the sunbeds in your swimsuit with a book in one hand and munching your yummy delicacies.

Christmas movie is a must! You can also arrange a BBQ night to stay warm, exchange gifts, and keep your belly happy.

#4 Underwater Sightseeing for Christmas in Bali

The rain is not affect the submarine tour. Therefore, this activity still receives a high demand on the holiday season from tourists with children. People love adoring the sea creatures and the magical underwater life that we can hardly see on the surface. Therefore, parents would often use this circumstance as an interactive learning medium to give an exciting introduction to the other side of nature kids are curious to know about. Bali Villas R Us could assist you to easily arranging a reservation for a group submarine adventure with Odyssey Submarine Bali in Karangasem – Bali.

#5 Safari Encounter at Bali Zoo Parks

It’s only an hour and a half from Ngurah Rai International Airport and you don’t have to worry to be caught in the rain too. For touring, you will be safe in a special minibus. On each bus, there will be a special host. They will educate you on things related to animals and plants you didn’t know before. Similar to that of the Submarine tour, this one is a great amusement for visitors of all ages. You can spend Christmas in Bali with your family by visiting these zoo parks. Because not many persons have the chance to see exotic animals we can only watch on YouTube or TV and once we go there, be prepared to spark our inner childhood again.

#6 Tasting Fresh Seafood Grill for Christmas in Bali

A fresh and hot seafood grill is one of the perfect food choices that people love to have during the rainy Christmas in Bali. There are numerous seafood eateries in Bali. You can enjoy a seafood mukbang that you can handpick first based on your preferences. Some of them are Jimbaran Fresh Grilled Seafood Putu Oka, Kedonganan Market, OFF THE HOOK Grilled Seafood Shisha Beer shop, and Bingin Bagus Seafood BBQ. See details here.

#7 Afternoon Tea Delights

Luxuriating the afternoon in Bali can come in many ways. But absolutely, a high tea party serves a match to the rainy season. You can savor local and western cake while sipping a hot cup of tea and waiting for the sun to vanish and change to evening. Find Biku Bali in Seminyak and Ubud, Standing Stones Restaurant, and Folk Ubud, for sure. You can also expect the legendary Christmas sweet such as gingerbread cookies and any kinds of pie to be on the menu as well.

#8 Admiring Churches in Bali

Besides holding your prayer, you can have a pilgrim journey to any church with beautiful architecture during Christmas in Bali. Some were even inspired by the classic Balinese architecture like the Palasari Church in Jembrana Region and the Church of St. Joseph in Denpasar.

#9 Ice Skating

You don’t need to go far north to experience ice skating. It is because you can totally have it a go in Bali. It can be an amusing family activity to make your Christmas in Bali a merrier one. For this, try the ice-skating arena at Mall Bali Galleria.
