The Indonesia guide

So you made it to Bali! There are certain excitements when you first come to Bali. Especially, if this time would involve settling for good in this island of Gods. Just like the island itself, Bali's International airport of Ngurah Rai offers a glimpse of what life in this tropical island entails. It's crowded, hot but full of smiles.

Ask any visitors who come to Bali and they would immediately testify that the biggest charm of this idyllic island is its people. Like the rest of Indonesia, Balinese people are renowned for their charming smiles and hospitality. They are open to foreigners and are always ready to help. This may be due to tourism being the backbone of their economy. Especially in the south of Bali where most expats are residing, most of the Balinese can speak English (at least basic) and open their hands, heart and sometimes their house to the visiting fellows.

As a tourist destination, the list of things do in Bali is endless. Bali pretty much has everything from natural wonders like idyllic beaches and lush mountainous range to human-made entertainment centres.

Being surrounded by beaches, it's no surprise that the number one sport that most expats do in Bali is surfing. From beginner waves in Kuta to that renowned surf barrels in Uluwatu, Bali has different kinds of surf breaks suited for all levels.
