What kind of list would this be if we didn’t mention Bali? Heralded as the Land of the Gods, Bali is the ultimate tropical getaway where living like a millionaire is possible on virtually any budget. From treehouse stays and lush rainforests to sweeping sand beaches and delectable cuisines, there’s no shortage of things to love about this Indonesian province.

Indonesia always fascinated me. It seems like a cool place to spend my retirement lazy life.

Average direct flight time 3 hrs 58 mins

Not only are there incredible local tattoo artists here, there's tons who visit for short periods of time and guest tattoo at studios while they're in town.

Amongst rich jungles and a pristine coastline, Bali is a true island oasis escape. Bali has some truly sustainable hotel and tourist options, providing a conscious way of daily life. Truly relax and take in this paradise destination and enjoy the wonders of our natural world- and sunny beaches.

Bali is an island of towering, cloud-topped volcanoes and vibrant green rice fields that terrace down to the ocean. It has a mesmerising traditional culture, world-class beach resorts, and is undeniably enchanting. Dine barefoot on the sand by candlelight, relax with a traditional massage, or soak up the scenery from a mystical temple.

I would love to visit Bali and explore the island for a few months!

From luxurious, yet affordable villas, to monkey encounters and banana pancakes, Bali truly has something for everyone. From the states, it’s a good 24 hour trek to get there, so be sure to carve out a good 2-3 weeks to fully experience this magical island.

If epic surf, delicious food, and gorgeous guest houses by the beach are your thing, then Bali is where you’ll want to head. This famous tropical destination is anything but overdone — despite what everyone else will have you believe. Just bypass over-touristed Kuta and you’ll discover a wonderful, laid-back, and super-friendly haven that’s made for relaxing vacations. Choose between the cooler temps and uber-trendy vibe of Ubud in the highlands, the glorious reefs off the coast of Candi Dasa on the east, or pick just about any spot on Bali’s north coast where you’ll find dolphins, boat rides, amazing grilled seafood, and very, very few tourists. Bali offers 101 options, and if you’re willing to go beyond the usual hot-spots, you’ll discover an island that’s steeped in ancient traditions and outstanding natural beauty. Life is blissfully easy and inexpensive in Bali, making it one of the world’s best hubs for digital nomads. But there’s more to it than that. With exceptional beaches, friendly locals, and a lifestyle that just screams ‘tropical paradise’, Bali is the bees’ knees, helped by the fact that delightful Lombok and the unplugged Gili Islands are all but a short boat-ride away.
