Whatever the case, you’ll surely want to fill even the cloudiest of days with activities that will make your Bali stay one for the memory books. Even when it’s raining in Bali.

Throw on a poncho and make your way to one of the many Bali shopping malls. From the sheltered yet open-air environment of the Beachwalk Shopping Center in Kuta to Tamora Gallery in Canggu (one of our favourite lifestyle shopping villages), you’re bound to fill your shopping bags. Bali malls are not only for shopping though, in most malls, you’ll also find a number of activities to keep the children entertained from arcades to sometimes even snow to play in!

Catch a Matinee or Evening Showing at the Cinema

Check Coffee Shops off Your Sipping List

Cakeries like cafes like Grain Bali and The Coffee Club in Legian are at your fingertips. As such, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t spend your day amongst digital nomads, time wasters and coffee lovers of all kinds during a rainy Bali day. We all need to get our daily caffeine fix anyway, don’t we?

Soak up the Rain at Waterbom Bali


You’re already getting wet anyway, so why not take advantage of the rain and absorb fun at Bali’s premier water park Waterbom Bali? For as little as 33 USD, you and your family can access a lazy river, Funtastic playground and Double Twist water slide. To skip the entry queues, buy your tickets online in advance.

When it’s raining in Bali, Escape Room Bali, Totem Room Escape and more make for a brainy way to spend a rainy afternoon.

So forget about the rain, get your heads together, and find your winning strategy to escape the room.

Play Board Games and Shuffle Cards at the Hotel

At last when it’s raining in Bali, and you wanted to make it still a memorable vacation, keeping it simple is best. Games like Catan, Rummy, and Monopoly allow you and your friends to waste away the rainy day in pure bliss. Add a few snacks and a trendy hotel lobby to the mix and you’ve got yourself the perfect Bali day (or night) in. Forgot to put your favourite game in your suitcase? Ask your hotel, as most Bali Hotels have board games available for their guests in case it’s raining in Bali.
