Hi! My name is Michael, a digital entrepreneur and recovering workaholic.
I leased a villa in Bali a few years ago after coming to a crossroads in my life, and like many people decided I wanted to spend more time living the life I wanted, and less time working insane hours for years on end without a break.
When my family and friends would come to visit (the attraction of a luxury 3 bedroom villa in Seminyak may have been a strong drawcard) they peppered me with questions. Was it safe to use ATMs in Bali? How do you exchange cash for Indonesian Rupiah at a money changer and what scams to watch for?
So I started by copying and pasting the emails to friends and family, then because I am lazy, I made a website and posted the content to make it easier to just send a link.
Then guests staying in my holiday villas asked even more detailed questions. Where are the best waterfalls in Bali, and what was the best way of getting there? Which Balinese temples are most worth visiting and what is the etiquette for visiting them?
Seasoned travellers started asking for tips about arriving at Bali Airport, how to get from Denpasar Airport to Seminyak and what scams to look for when hiring a taxi in Bali and tips for renting a scooter.
Read the reviews and remember… Bali is always a good idea.
Safe travels, Michael
I can’t recommend his services and his advice enough!
I randomly found Michael’s website a few months before our first trip to Bali and I am so thankful I did! We literally followed his tips exactly for getting through customs, buying a SIM card and getting out cash and it was so smooth. We booked an airport transfer and 4 full days with a private driver… which I was a little nervous about at first (just to be honest), but everything worked out perfectly. Having a private driver ensured we saw all we wanted without having to deal with the tricky local taxis and it gave us peace of mind knowing who we would be with every day. I can’t recommend his services and his advice enough!
