People move countries for many reasons. Sometimes for family, sometimes due to work commitments.
However there are many more reasons why people choose to settle in Bali.
Below are the top 10 Reasons To Move To Bali.
Bali has incredible beauty and spectacular coastal landscapes with amazing beaches that resemble paradise. What’s particularly special about Bali’s beaches is the sheer variety of them. It’s not just white powdery sands flanking calm turquoise lagoons, there’s also black-sanded coves that are as striking as they are seductive. In Bali, every beach has its own character and atmosphere, there’s beaches for surfers (some of the world’s best!), beaches for families, secret beaches for escape artists and beaches with every modern facility at hand (facing resorts, restaurants, shops).
Bali is home to many beautiful temples. Some of these have become some of the country’s most recognised landmarks and are magnificently set against the most scenic backdrops. Whilst most Bali temples might be centuries-old, they come to life with daily flower offerings, ornate decorations, lively processions and seasonal festivities. They present an amazing spiritual experience no visitor ever forgets!
The Natural Riches
There are many natural wonders to feast your eyes on in Bali. Its verdant highlands make for a photographer’s dream, as do its photogenic waterfalls and lakes, the expanses of emerald paddies and the glorious sunsets and sunrises to be admired from the coastline. Natural beauty abounds and surprises.
Bali enjoys 12 to 13 hours of sunshine each day, regardless of the time of year which gives visitors plenty of time to indulge in outdoor activities. Warmth is also a guarantee, with temperatures ranging between 26 and 31 degrees Celsius throughout the year. It does rain between October and April, but these are intermittent showers, after which the sun always comes out.
Balinese hospitality is at the core of the island’s charm. In Bali locals are friendly, spiritual and inspiring. Their simple way of life is coloured by daily rituals and festivities and getting to know the islanders is far easier than in many other popular holiday destinations around the world.
The rich local fare uses variety of spices with fresh vegetables, fish and meat. If, after a full culinary immersion in Balinese delights, you have a craving for flavours closer to home, then international options at most Balinese restaurants certainly won’t disappoint. Some of the world’s best restaurants are based in Bali.
Bali’s culture is intricately webbed into the way everyone does everything here. Culture marks the pace of life, sets the natural rhythm and inspires the way things are done. Everything revolves around ancient rituals, long-held beliefs and frequent festivities, one of which you’re more than likely to come across during your visit. Temples celebrate anniversaries once in every six Gregorian months as per the 210-day Balinese calendar, so there’s plenty of opportunities to catch a live celebration. With fruit offerings, decorated shrines and spiritual dances, you’ll fully get to submerge in the island’s fascinating culture.
Value for Money
One way air tickets can be bought for under $100 from Darwin or around $200 from Sydney, Melbourne & Perth. Indonesia led the rankings as the cheapest Asia-Pacific destination in a recent study by Cheapflights, with return fares averaging $528, down $60 from last year.
Accommodation wise, there’s more choices than ever which helps keep rates low. For a budget of about $50 a night, you can still get very decent accommodation. One of the world’s top-rated hotels according to TripAdvisor, Tegal Sari, in Bali’s cultural centre of Ubud, averages about $74 a night.
You will never go wanting when it comes to variety of hotels, lodges and apartments in Bali. The oversupply of accomodation is great news for the traveller from a price standpoint, as this often results in price wars. In Bali, you’ll find a place for every pocket.
The Art Scene
Bali is swamped in creativity that no other destination can match, and this creativity results in unique art pieces. Everywhere you turn in Bali, you’ll find art, whether in the form of a humble floral arrangement to more elaborate wood and stone carvings, intricate mambo structures and a variety of art-dedicated shops exhibiting a host of exclusively handmade artworks. You’ll find that in Bali, art is a way of life.
