Free guide to living and making money in Bali

Free guide to living in BaliWhen I first posted this picture on Facebook my auntie said how she could imagine sitting in one of those deck chairs alongside her husband. If you live in Bali, and I don’t mean just visiting for a short holiday, you can do it everyday! Imagine having your own maid for just $100 a month to do your cleaning, washing and cooking, happy in the knowledge you are providing someone with a job.

Since I started this website, I have had various emails from people asking how they can live in Bali. Jobs for foreigners are pretty scarce here, so you need to get a little creative to earn a living.

I decided to put together a guide to some of the potential opportunities for foreigners to make a living here in Bali.

The guide covers:

– my story and how I make a living
– visas
– jobs for expats in Bali
– starting a business
– doing freelance work
– and more!

You can read more about the book here.

    I will be volunteering at a Hindu orphanage in Singaraja soon. Kindly let me know, SOMEONE, if there is a gym and acupuncturists in downtown Singaraja. Also, I do want to live with others, in close proximity to others, preferably Buddhist-type people. I’d like to find a small, quiet, simple apartment for rent WITH A KITCHEN SINCE I ENJOY COOKING. I can pay up to about us$200./month, Thank you kindly, Gary from Santa Cruz California

      I noticed there was a new gym in Pemaron, which is just outside of Singaraja on the beach. You should be able to get a nice place on your budget. Just ask around. A kos, kind of like a boarding house is another option and should be very cheap.

      I have seen some places that offer acupunture, but have no experience with it. If you need help finding accommodation, feel free to shoot me an email.

    I’m seriously considering a Bali stint. I think I’d be ok money wise ( I do wedding photography + I design websites on the side ).

    I’m going to read more of your posts and then I might be the E-book. Thanks again.

    I presently work and live in Australia and will be making my 2nd trip back to Bali 25th April for a week.
    I am trying to get as much info as possible about living and working in Bali – i have printed out your book and will read this week.
    I am a single female and my profession is senior procees designer – which i dont think will have much calling for over there but i have used many different cad packages and have trained many.
    I suppose i am really looking at doing interior design/decorating and was wondering your thoughts on what could be available for me.
    i more so enjoy having a drink with someone and talking face to face – maybe a meet in April

      I would suggest having a look through the Bali Expat forum for more info:

      I am living in Lovina if you want to meet up when you are in Bali.
