Guide To Moving To Bali | Expats in Bali

Are you thinking of moving to Bali, Indonesia? Here’s my guide with everything you need to know on how to move to Bali, how much you can expect to spend and how to make yourself comfortable out here (finding the right accommodation, coworking space, visas, etc.).

Whether you’re planning on relocating in Bali for a month or long-term, here’s all I could think of to help you have a smooth transition.

Back in October 2017, I had no idea I would actually base myself in Bali for so long. The plan was to be there for one month.

Already, in December, I was back. One month became even longer and there I was, getting my own scooter and my own apartment. I was kind of living in Bali and this was a bit unexpected!

Bali has a huge expat community in places such as UbudCanggu, and Uluwatu. There’s so much to love about Bali that it’s understandable that most people want to live there or even stay longer.

For those who have freedom (hello digital nomads), living in Bali is a great idea. It’s cheap, the food is good, the locals are kind and you can live a good life out here.

Canggu is where I decided to base myself and this is also where I could see myself live for a long period of time. Being closer to the beach was important to me – I’m a sunset sucker and I want to become better at surfing! There’s just a special something about the vibes out here!
