If you have a travelling spirit, or know someone who does, it is almost certain that at one point, you considered Southeast Asia as your next destination. Don’t worry, we’ve all had that fantasy. Today you can set your next journey in a coliving space in Bali.
As one of the most popular provinces in Indonesia, Bali is a great place to start your next adventure. It probably won’t be as easy as boarding the next plane, but it’s not as hard as it seems either.
What to do in Indonesia? What are the best places to visit? Is it worth thinking about a coliving space in Bali? Join us and find out more about this destination which offers one of the most unique experiences in the world.
Knowing Bali: a whole new world
Depending on what culture you grew up with, Bali will impact you in many different ways. For starters, contrary to the rest of the country where Islam is the most popular religion, Balinese people are mostly hinduist and have another concept of the world.
That being said, the province has a lot of activities and perks that travelers will appreciate, and coliving in Bali will probably be one of the best ideas you’ll have.
We will learn more about the best places to visit in Bali, but for starters, you will find an awesome nightlife, a variety of local dishes to enjoy at a decent price and, mind you, it has a good healthcare system, much more affordable cost than western ones.
We didn’t find many cons, but we should definitely mention that it is a whole different culture from western ones. Indonesians are more conservative in some aspects, so be respectful of their traditions, and you will be more than fine.
Since accommodation can be challenging in the entire Southeast Asia, coliving has become one of the trendiest ways for digital nomads and remote workers to stay in budget.
Best places to visit when you are in a coliving in Bali
One of the best experiences while coliving around the world is to get to know new places and create your own journey wherever the wind takes you. However, it is a good idea to know where to start. So let’s check the places you need to know if you’re planning to visit Bali for your next destination.
Pura Ulun Danu Bratan
The Lake Bratan Hindu temple, also known as Pura Ulun Danu Bratan or, in the most identifiable way, the Floating Temple, is one of the most memorable temples not only in Bali but in Indonesia.
We think it is one of the most underrated places to visit, as it will surely be a mesmerizing experience to see this 350 years of living history temple. We won’t say much about it, just let you know that it is located inside a volcanic lake. Would you miss it?
Another Hindu temple with amazing views to the ocean, it is a must-see if you want to say you really knew Bali while you were coliving there. It is dedicated to Sang Hyang Widhi Wasa, the Supreme God of Indonesian Hinduism, specially in Bali.
Let’s take a little break from temples and let’s focus on Mount Batur, an active volcano that erupted 22 years ago, but it remains one of the most shocking attractions to locals and foreigners.
The volcano ‘s caldera is populated with, at least, four main villages: Kedisan, Songan, Trunyan and Toya Bungkah. Visiting those places is a once in a lifetime experience.
Tegallalang Rice Terrace
Have you ever heard about rice terraces? If you haven’t, you will be astonished by this kind of landmark. This is the greenest part of Bali and the “staircase” shape of these terraces will stay in your memory forever.
It follows a traditional Balinese irrigation system (called “subak”) that is dated from the 8th century. The rice terraces will offer that dose of nature you always look for in any destination.
Seminyak and Pantai Sanur
Last but not least, Bali offers one of the greatest beaches in Southeast Asia. If you want to take a week off and just relax by the ocean, you can visit Seminyak or Pantai Sanur for a wholesome beach experience.
Bali in a nutshell
Whether you are an experienced traveler or just a newcomer to the coliving ecosystem around the world, Bali is a must in your “next destinations list”.
If you are a remote worker, finding a coliving place in Bali will boost your social circle in a new city and will definitely ease your journey into a different culture.
It will be a challenging but, at the same time, rewarding experience. You just have to take the first step, which is to choose the destination. Everything will adjust to that initial decision.
