Like to care for yourself or have be spoilt with maids, driver and a gardener. Like to laze around a pool all day, or prefer to grow exotic orchids ( just as easy here! ). Stay at home and let someone else take your shopping or be escorted to the shops and be shown how to bargain.
I love this place! I have lived here for 18 years without a single regret! Don't worry about the grandchildren, bring them here, they'll love it!!
How much does it cost to live in Bali?
Well that depends on your lifestyle. Living a normal life it is easy for two people to live well on less than $500 a month. This includes food and drink, electricity, telephone, internet, petrol and entertainment. If you prefer a more outgoing way of life it is still possible to eat out every day for less than $500 each!
You will also need to budget $700 a year for the retirement visa and you should also consider medical insurance.
A typical small japanese car will cost around
$16,000 new or you can take a good used car for $6,000 upwards. Petrol is around 50c a litre and the yearly motor tax varies from $60 to $100. Motor bikes, for the more adventurous, can be purchased from $1500 for a moped up to $15,000 or more for a Harley-Davidson!
Taxis are readily available in tourist locations and the capital Denpasar, short journeys costing a few dollars while a journey from Kuta to Sanur will set you back around $10. You also have the local 'public transport' a lot less comfortable, but very cheap.
If you employ a maid to care for you in your house you can expect to pay around $80 a month. You will also have to add the cost of their food if they stay with you. For this they will be available 24/7 or you can agree your own work schedule for a lower wage.
This does not include the cost of accomodation which you can view here.
