Bali: Laidback, Low-Cost Living on an Island Paradise


Bali is an intoxicating place—just over three-and-a-half hours from Perth, six-and-a-half from Sydney, it’s a world away from Australia. The food, smells and landscapes are tailor-made to tantalise your senses.

Life is easy in Bali. Expats here enjoy laidback lives and feel a sense of freedom they didn’t have at home.

You can have a comfortable life in Bali for as little as $2,500 per month including rent. Depending on where you choose to live, furnished homes can be found for as little as $125 per month. A Bintang beer costs $2.50…a maid twice a week, $12…and the expat community is strong and active.

Most expats settle in southern Bali, close to the island’s best surfing beaches. Bali is rated as one of the top surfing destinations in the world and the best in Asia. Along this coast you are close to the capital Denpasar and the international airport. Though the whole island is less than half the size of Sydney’s metropolitan area, Bali is diverse…with volcanic mountains, a more temperate interior and, in the north, where some expats have found a mellow lifestyle and even lower costs, you’ll find black-sand beaches.

Thousands of Australians are already part- or full-time retired in Bali…and it’s not hard to understand why. Check out this video for a taste of what this island paradise has to offer…
