Bali is the ideal destination if you want to get away from the cold. With year-round average temperatures of roughly 78 degrees Fahrenheit, this place has pleasant weather. In fact, it never really gets too hot or too cold here and there are beaches all around! The closest beach is less than 20 minutes by car. If you feel like going for a swim then this should be on your list of things to do! Cost: The cost of living in Bali is much lower than living in Western countries like America, Australia, or New Zealand. Therefore it might be more affordable for those who are looking for work but don’t have high income because they might be able to live more comfortably on their salary due to the cheaper cost of living here. Furthermore, groceries can be purchased for half the price at stores like Supermarkets and Tesco so people who are just starting out with little money can still enjoy life while saving up some cash.

Beautiful Beaches

With picture-perfect white sand and azure seas, some of the nicest beaches in the world are found in Bali. Additionally, you will see beautiful scenery wherever you turn. All around you there is something to capture your attention; from lush jungle to stunning waterfalls, this island has it all.
One thing that is worth noting is that because there are no mountains or rivers on the island, people rely on rainwater for their daily needs. You’ll need to be conscious of how much water you use when living here!

Affordable Prices

Bali isn’t too pricey, despite being a tropical paradise and a tourist hotspot. The costs of lodging, meals, and beverages are relatively reasonable if you are not searching for high-end goods. The cost of living is also considerably lower than many other developed countries. Cost of living index data shows that it is about 1/3rd the cost to live in Bali compared to San Francisco. In addition, rental prices for apartments range from $250 to $1,000 per month, depending on size and amenities. You can buy a one bedroom apartment in Ubud for around $600 per month or rent an entire house (with pool!) on Airbnb for just $150 per night!

The ideal location for leading an active lifestyle is Bali. The island itself encourages constant movement by providing a wealth of reasons to leave the house, such as beaches, a wide variety of outdoor activities, and possibilities for exploration. It also has some incredible sights that should not be missed like Mount Agung, Borobudur Temple, Tanah Lot Temple and Taman Ayun Temple. There are also two popular surfing spots just outside of Ubud: Padang Padang Beach and Uluwatu Beach.

Friendly Locals

Bali is a popular tourist destination, therefore the natives are used to tourists. You won’t feel alienated for too long, and the sizable number of foreign residents who call this home should also make it easy for you to adapt. More importantly, there’s a sense of unity with everyone. The people here want nothing more than to share their culture with travelers from all over the world. You’ll find that locals are quick to greet you on the street or strike up conversation with you when they see your camera around your neck. With no language barrier standing in your way, locals will invite you into their homes for dinner or have free conversations about everything under the sun at an art market (as opposed to some other places where it’s more difficult for locals and travelers alike). If you’re looking for good company while exploring your new home abroad, Bali will be perfect!
