How much does it cost to live in Bali?

   Rented accommodation is available from around $7000 a year upwards. The cost is dependent on the location, size of property and facilities. You should expect to budget $10-12,000 a year. Long term rentals are paid yearly in advance, some landlords ask for longer terms.

   If you purchase you own property then your outgoings are greatly reduced and you have the advantage of an asset which is continually growing.

   For a typical small house you would only need around $30-50 a month for electricity and water, without air conditioning. Depending on usage an A/C will cost around another $50 a month. Broadband internet access costs from $30 a month.

   Well how do you want to live here?
You can eat well on just $2-300 a month. Even less if you cook fresh from the market.
If you eat out every day and spend your nights in a bar then you could still only need $1000 a month for food and drink.

   Entertainment can be had every day, with a walk on the beach or through the ricefields. Watch the children learning to dance in the Local Banjar or sit back and watch the garden grow.

   You will need around $700 a year for your retirement visa and will be expected to pay a small contribution to the local banjar, typically $10 a month.
