The Indonesian Military and National Police ripped down private structures along the coastline of popular tourist island Gili Trawangan.

A couple of my expat neighbors have expressed an opinion that the real estate market was fairly flat through out the Island, and wondered how many others would agree?
I guess this question was raised in my mind after recently visiting Ubud after being absent from that area for some time and...
Finally secured some land at Balian Beach. We are now trying to find a good builder who understands good quality work and charges a fair rate. Not an exorbitant rate. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
My daughters birthday tomorrow and my wife has a day off so I thought I might book a room in Southport for one night and take the girls to Seaworld. If I want anything half decent, I'll have to pay at least $500, just for the room. $500 for a very ordinary room with a couple of beds and no...
There are so many police and military out in force today. President Widodo's son is getting married at Semara Beach house in Canggu.
Anyone know anything about this wedding?
Anyone lucky enough to get an invite?
Does anyone have any favourite beach/ocean view spots that offer sunset happy hour?
I have 2 favourites so far are:
1) Chez Gado Gado on Seminyak beach offer 2 for 1 cocktails 4pm - 6pm great spot as it’s just back from the beach on a low set deck with comfy seats -...
For those that live elsewhere and/or haven't been following it this is an interesting synopsis of general life issues here. I don't know how much or how little these events will impact on Bali but I'm sure there has been some "filter down" in the shape of alcohol bans and a general reluctance to...
This is no joke.

Hi All, I am coming to Bali with the other half for a week. We normally go to Thailand and have used the expat forum there for great advice. Figure the Bali one would be the same.
My brother was in Bali about a year ago and hired a local he met outside his hotel to show him and his family...
Hi everyone. Planning to go visit Bali this December with the whole family.
We are going a Bali holiday and our main concern now is if December is best for us or too crowded or bad timing? It's for 2 weeks visit, and if you have suggestion for any family-friendly activity or place too, is...

Indonesia being a Moslem country it can get pretty challenging to find a cold beer. That’s if you just go at it like you would in any other country: walk into shop, ask for beer, walk out disappointed and...
I was watching the news this morning and saw this: Bali murder accused Sara Connor and David Taylor return to beach for reconstruction - ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)
The reporter seemed surprised how this was done. I know they do something similar in Thailand. Can't imagine it...
Good evening all,
Buying a used car anywhere is a serious buyers beware matter and I daresay buying a used car in Bali has some extras. But here's the thing. It seems that motor cycling in Indonesia is a rather hazardous occupation and more so with extra considerations for a Bule.
I saw this product is available in N, America and simply plugs into a power socket.....but they work off 120VAC.
I have a fiber WiFi modem in an upstairs bedroom but the signal is a bit weak in a guest bedroom downstairs.
Can anyone explain how they work and where available to buy in Bali...
From what I can gather from the article, it seems like no fatalities but all luggage was lost. No life jackets on the boat either, or insurance.
An American woman living in Bali has warned women to watch their drinks after being slipped what she believes was a monster Rohypnol dose in a bar at the island paradise.
Mara Wolford said she went to the bar for a drink on July 4 with two friends and ordered mojitos.
