Some travellers like one place so much that they always come back and want to stay there. Some would even try to find a job there.
Bali has become one of world’s most popular travel destination since decades. The island is the perfect place for everyone. It offers so many attractions and things to do. The combination of warm temperature and fresh air will make you want to stay forever in Bali.
The good people, natural scenes, spritual atmosphere and freedom are the things that Bali has to offer. In Bali you can do almost all the fine things you may not find in any other places.
Thinking about going to Bali for vacation and for living is yet two different things. There are several things you should consider before moving yourself to Bali.
Working vs. Holidaying
The most distinguishing thing between working and holidaying in Bali is your visa, if you are a foreigner. Eventhough it is not difficult to get a working visa in Indonesia, you must always keep in mind that not all the employers in Bali will provide that for you. So, you have to manage that by yourself.
As a tourist in Bali you must have seen how the locals live and do for a living. As the main source of income in Bali are tourism and agriculture, you can imagine what kind of jobs that are available in Bali. Eventhough the amount is much smaller, other job opportunities are also available in Bali. Today, the creative industries are rising and expanding. They are mostly still relating to tourism business.
The ambience of living and travelling in Bali is quite distinct. It is not that you cannot enjoy in the beaches anymore. You just have to decrease your intensity of going there since you have the responsibility to work.
When you are living and working in Bali, the biggest distraction will come from your family and friends. Whenever they come to Bali on holiday, they will definately look for you and ask you to go out. Unfortunately, you are in Bali for working, not holidaying. You will not have as much time as they do. Most of the time you will dismiss their invitation to hang out.
The living cost in Bali is not expensive at all. With a unique architecture and comfortable facilities, almost all the accomodation in Bali is affordable. But, since the wage in Bali is lower than in other big cities in Indonesia, you will think twice to get those cozy rooms or apartments. In addition, you cannot resist to save some of your salary to enjoy an after work beer at the beach, yoga class, weekend trips around Bali, and many more interesting activities to do.
In Bali you can find all kind of cuisines from all over the world. The price ranges from ten tousand rupiahs for one portion of local meal in Indonesian warung to hundreds rupiahs for fine cuisine at a restaurant.
