November and February to April are Fiji’s rainy season, with the rain pouring down like cats and dogs on a daily basis while the humidity levels are high. Though you can get the best Fiji resort at a reduced rate during these months, there is no point in going to a beach town when you can’t enjoy the waves is there?

Maybe

The Fijian winter, or the shoulder season, is during the months May to October. Less rainfall, lower humidity rates, and bearable temperatures are the norms for this season. The risk of cyclones during these months is also lower, in comparison to the months earlier.

Yes!

If you are planning to visit Fuji June to September or December to January, book your hotels months in advance when allowed, like at the InterContinental Fiji Golf Resort and Spa, for example. The prices tend to go up drastically as this is when the weather is picture perfect and the white sandy beaches are welcoming.

Guests at an Ubud hotel located in Bali’s central foothills such as Alila Ubud, must make their way to the Ubud Monkey Forest for an unforgettable experience. As more than 700 monkeys call Ubud Forest their home, entering the forest is like stepping into a scene from the Jungle Book. The monkeys are divided into four main groups and are defined by the areas of the forest they inhabit. 

 

Forest Temples

The Ubud Monkey Forest is formally known as the Sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary and the area is home to three beautifully adorned temples. Each temple is dedicated to a different God and attracts worshippers each day. Photographers would be thrilled by the opportunity to photograph the lively monkeys against the backdrop of the intricately carved temples.

 

Feeding Monkeys

There are feeding areas located around the Monkey Forest where visitors can purchase fruit to feed the monkeys. It is fun to watch the agile creatures devour the fruits but be warned that sometimes they may become aggressive when food stocks are low.

 

Primate Pickpockets

The inhabitants of the Ubud forest are a mischievous bunch and surprisingly adept pickpockets so it is best to empty your pockets before you wander through the forest in order to have an enjoyable visit.
