Millennials are moving to Bali
THE JAKARTA POST

No longer seen as just a spot for a vacation getaway, Bali is fast becoming the hottest place for millennials to live.
Thriving with startups, with a relatively low cost of living, Bali is a prime location for millennials who are always on the look out for something different and exciting. The flourishing startup industry is supported by an abundance of co-working spaces and an environment that encourages creativity.
Businessman Andrew White who has lived in Bali for 10 years agrees. Previously an actor in several local television series, he, along with his wife and two children, chose to leave Jakarta to enjoy life.
“I want my children to be in nature; soaking up the sun, playing at the beach, enjoying space that is not a mall,” he said.
“I can go straight to the beach after I get home. I can take my children and spend two hours there. Imagine trying to get home in Jakarta; the two hours it would take to beat the traffic is what I could spend leisurely at the beach,” he added.
