I'm thinking of a holiday to the west of Sri Lanka, near Colombo, or Bali in November. Can anyone tell me what to expect weather wise in each place?

"Better" is subjective. Do you mean hotter? Or perhaps cooler? Less humid? More sunny days? It's difficult to answer such a question until you clarify it. It's probably better to ask for a comparison of the weather in the two places in that particular month. –  mindcorrosive Feb 21 '12 at 14:40
    
Both the places are so different that I cannot answer this question without knowing what you are going there for. –  Ankur Banerjee Feb 21 '12 at 21:47
    
Normally I would start with Wikipedia to see what it says about the climate for a given time of year, but neither the Bali nor the Sri Lanka page has a climate section. –  bneely Feb 22 '12 at 0:59
    
You can check MSN Weather for that. By the way, I wonder why question about Bali is quite rare in StackExchange. –  Rudy Gunawan Feb 22 '12 at 7:09
    
Great thanks Rudy for the feedback, that's exactly what I wanted to know. –  Zaski Feb 24 '12 at 19:12

BALI

In November, Bali is just barely starting to enter the rainy season. You can check it in Bali MSN Weather

  • The temperature is around 21-27 degrees Celcius.
  • Humidity is around 65%
  • In the month there's an average of eight rainy days.
  • The peak of the rainy season would be in December - March, so in November is actually quite OK compared to December or January

I was in Bali for one week in November 2010, and within 1 week, rain only happened 1 time during the daytime.

However if you are really worried about rain, you should go around April - August, when Bali is in the peak of the dry season.

COLOMBO

You can check Colombo's November weather in Colombo's MSN Weather.

  • Temperature 23-31 Celcius
  • Humidity is around 79%
  • In the month there's an average of six rainy days.
