Expat family guide to moving to BaliIf you found yourself on this page, chances are you are looking for information for moving to Bali. You may have already been found information from various blogs and forums about moving to Bali, only to find a lot of conflicting and sometimes inaccurate advice.

I am here to help

I have been living in Bali since 2010, married a beautiful Indonesian woman and have started a family here. I have been helping answer people’s questions about moving to Bali since I started this website.

Not just for retirees

Lately, I have noticed a great deal of interest from not just individuals wanting to move to Bali, but from whole families.  Often families with one partner living in Bali taking care of the kids, while their partner works overseas, or so called fly-in fly-out (FIFO) workers.

Moving overseas can be a pretty daunting experience and for families it can be an even bigger challenge. Perhaps one partner is more interested in the other, or one child is anxious or reluctant to make the move.

You have probably been to Bali for a holiday, fallen in love with the island and now want to know what it would be like to live there. I often hear people who have moved to Bali how different it is than being on holiday – sometimes for the better and sometimes for the worse.

Sharing mine and other expats advice

I often hear about foreigners having various trouble after moving to Bali. Nothing makes me more upset to hear about people having a bad experience, as I love Bali and its people. It is the reason why I decided to write this book. Also, since I had my first child here, I wanted to know what was available in Bali, education wise.

Hear from parents who have kids attending Bali’s famous Green School.

“My son wakes up on Saturday morning and asks to go to school.”

I knew that anyone moving to Bali, would also need this information. I talked to many expat families about their experiences moving to Bali and some of them share their stories in the book.

“People must understand when they come to Bali, that schooling is expensive without great facilities, but it is the wonderful multicultural experience the children get, and I love that the teachers can give your kids a hug if they need one. Balinese people are caring and love children, I think western countries have made school too formal with ridiculous rules and regulations, forgetting kids need to be kids and need more than just academics.”

No paradise

Bali is often marketed as an ‘island paradise’. Of course living in Bali is not always a bed of roses and I want to share some of the negative things also, so you can make a better decision as to whether Bali is going to be right for you.
