It’s Spring Now in Bali

It’s spring now in Bali, when October comes and rain begin to pour down then it is just a matter of time you will see the blooming flowers here in in the paradise island of Bali. In Balinese traditional calendar, October is parallel with Kapat (the fourth month of Balinese Caka calendar) and for the Balinese Kapat means its full moon will be the brightest in all year and the flowers will bloom.


After the harsh drought and blazing sun of Katiga (the third month of of Caka Calendar usually around September) the pouring rain of Kapat is surely a welcome change. With the appearance of rain, plants begin to produce flower buds and in the peak of Kapat you can see those flowers in full bloom. Kapat is also the long-awaited month for Balinese farmers since its rain is essential for the rice fields.

Kapat (October) is also a ceremony season in Bali since Kapat is considered to be a lucky month for the ceremony. Many temple anniversaries will be held on the full moon of Kapat, besides there also many rites of passage especially wedding ceremony takes place this month.

With its soothing rains and blooming flowers, the beauty of Kapat is immortalized by many Balinese traditional poets in Kakawin or Geguritan (a kind of traditional poem). And it is also the best time for the tourists to get outdoor experiences on the back street of Balinese rural areas, to see and feel the spring of Bali.
