Canggu vs Seminyak

Both Canggu and Seminyak are popular destinations in Bali, each offering its own experience. Canggu is a more laid-back, quiet area known for surfing, yoga, and wellness. It’s rural and relaxed, with rice paddies, beaches, trendy cafes, bars, and restaurants. But, Seminyak is more cosmopolitan with a vibrant nightlife and upscale shopping scene. It’s ideal for those who like the finer things, like high-end boutiques, restaurants, and clubs. So, where you stay in Bali depends on your own personal preferences and travel style.

Best Areas To Stay In Canggu

Best Time To Visit Canggu

If you’re planning a trip to Canggu, you’ll want to avoid December to February. This is the heaviest part of the rainy season, with high humidity and lots of mosquitoes. From May to September, it’s cooler and drier, making it ideal for outdoor activities like surfing and yoga. If you don’t mind the occasional rain shower, plan your trip for fall or early spring. The heat and humidity may be higher, but the hotel rates are lower, and it’s less crowded. And it would be the perfect time to make the most of your villa’s private pool.
