We will also mention some pros and cons of living in Bali as a digital nomad in

2021

, guys, so first. What we

want

ed to talk about is obviously the Internet, the most important thing for a digital nomad. We

want

ed to say. We spent two months in Albania and two months in Türkiye before arriving in Bali. We were able to compare. We can definitely compare. And? We wanted to say that this is an absolute paradise in terms of internet speed. Just an example. Most coffee shops. Most hotels. The guest houses. It doesn't matter how it looks. Is it five stars or one star?

Really do not care. Internet is absolutely. outstanding yes it's always good most speeds are 50 megabits plus so download speed is 50 60 70 megabits in most places so upload speeds are also very important to our content creators for youtubers, uh, 60 70 loading speeds almost everywhere, very stable. Fast internet now takes us literally minutes, video takes, yes, 10 to 15 minutes and it's absolutely heavenly. I would give it 10 stars out of 10. Another very important thing we wanted to talk about is co-working spaces, obviously a very popular topic. Also, from where we're sitting right now, if we just Google it, we'll see probably about 20 coworking spaces literally within walking distance of where we are, we're at the bottom, so it's very central, uh, If you Google it like crazy, I've never seen anything like it, many of them probably have the highest density of workspaces on earth in Changu, where we live.

The second densest overspace area would probably be Ubud. Many people are comparing Changu and Ubud. Where to go Where to stay The coworking space is probably of a very similar standard. Changu definitely wins in that aspect, but if you are a person who enjoys a slightly poorer lifestyle, a bit more yoga connected to nature, you surf. Nightlife is definitely changing this topic. The difference between Chango and Ubud has been discussed many times, so we won't touch on that. We prefer the jungle because it's a little more lively. We talk about the best co-working spaces in Chengdu.
Definitely the number one dojo. tropical nomad tropical nomad The third one would be uh genesis creative hub, it's new and there are also many new coworking spaces created almost every month. Something new is what's great too. These are not just coworking spaces they are great spaces to live in so you can live there, they offer gym memberships and they also have a pool. Yes, the good example is a zinc coffee. Yes, a zinc cafe literally next door is a hotel. It is a shared job. space, they have a gym, they have a hotel, yes it's basically a hotel, you have everything, so they build these types of complexes, everything absolutely amazing, most of these coworking spaces work on a monthly membership, like you said Alina, that's right.
You can also buy a day pass, you can buy a wheat pass or you can buy a session package so 1 5 10 20 sessions or 20 hours yes it is based on hours yes how many hours you want to use yes it is your choice most prices One hour or one day pass is around 10-15 dollars, not the cheapest but you get quite a bit, sometimes you also get food and entry to a pool etc., monthly passes, monthly passes unlimited. 150 dollars, it can go up to 200, but it will be like an all-inclusive package, with many benefits, you can get an assigned table that will be just your private locker, like you are literally renting a small office for 150 to 200 dollars. which is absolutely great if you're a digital nomad you've probably heard of uh vpn uh which is a virtual private network.
We're using expressvpn uh just because it's the fastest, the most reliable, the best 100. Plus, we're affiliated, so we're. I will leave a link in the description of this video if you are looking for a quality VPN definitely check it out it gives you security and yes all your data is absolutely encrypted it is definitely reliable and right now it is the number one VPN in the world. One of the biggest reasons we decided to move to Changu in particular is the expat community that lives here. It's actually an absolutely super big expat community and why I'm talking about that, if you're one of those people who come to the place not only. live but you want to connect with other like-minded people, it's very easy here, yes, yes, you also want to, for example, start your business here or work or find a partner for your business or just

become

a part of one. kind of team um in terms of da chuango is absolutely brilliant, you can meet so many interesting people here, there are so many new companies being started here and generally you can meet so many people who are looking for the same things as you. looking to connect willing to connect yes create something together so it's definitely a very creative center in terms of healthcare in barley particularly healthcare in chengdu we haven't had experience personally with the local hospitals however after speaking to many of our friends who had experience afterwards Talking about some expatriates, we can say that it is quite good, it is at a quite good level, sometimes very equal to that of Western countries.
The hospitals appear to be very clean. The staff speaks fluent English. They also use modern technology and equipment. And the important thing is to mention that you need to have health insurance which takes us to another point. We wanted to mention that we are using security wing health insurance. We are also affiliates of them, so we will leave a link in the description. It's basically Digital Nomads, health and travel insurance all in one, created by digital nomads for digital moments, so guys, go and check it out if you're interested. It's very affordable and we're paying around $40 and that basically covers us in every aspect.
It's the San Francisco base, yes, the American base, yes, guys, we have paused the mood for a moment because today we have a beautiful day and we wanted to go to the beach and probably continue talking. Another topic we wanted to mention is, is it family? family atmosphere family community actually and uh right now we have a lot of kids running around we are on the beach uh we see a lot of families young families coming here all the families are moving to changu they rent a one or two bedroom villa and the cost of life will be mentioned at the end of this video, so make sure you stick around because we're going to talk about how much all that costs and we'll do a separate video in the future. 100 yes, so We are currently tracking everything we spend, literally every penny, every penny, so we will create a separate video on the in-depth cost of living in Bali for a couple or for a single person.
We can talk about that too, so be sure to keep an eye out for that too. Back to the topic, uh, familiar, how is the English here, the security, like here, all of those are absolutely great, everyone speaks English, sure, what do you want? Yes, literally, at all levels, uh, the youngest, the youngest, the oldest too, everyone. He speaks decent English so there is no problem at all, there are so many activities for our children and also for our whole family. You can easily pay a babysitter to take care of your child if you are busy at any time of the day.
Yes, I see a lot of local women. take care of the children, yes, yes, then that is the option for you too, yes, and at the same time you give a job to a local person, which is a very good point, that is a very good point, that is another way to support the local community and give back and give back, yes a lot of families go out in the evenings, on the beach they play, the kids run around so I don't see any reason why it wouldn't be a friendly environment for our family guys , We hope you enjoy it.
Today's video so far, don't forget to give us the thumbs up if you do and let's continue. We also wanted to talk about one of the most important things and that is, what do you do in your free time? Yes, like digital. nomad, huh, is there anything to do outside of restaurants and cafes? Yes, there are many things to do, probably the most things to do outside of any other country we have visited so far. Yoga, fitness, surfing, you can attend a million billion different classes. dance classes retreats retreats breathing classes meditation also yes, there are so many things to do in any area of ​​your life that you want to improve or improve, you will definitely find someone to help you with that and that is for sure in the changu, right?
Guys, let's talk about real things now and we can't wait until we start talking about prices. Finally, how much does it cost to live in Changu or Bali as a digital nomad in

2021

? We're not going too. we went too deep into this topic because we said we're going to create a separate video on that so I've got it written up right now and we're just going to cover our basic basic pricing, ballpark pricing, pricing that we're at. paying so right now we are paying for our accommodation which is a sort of shared guest house. I would say it is something between villa and guest house.
It's a dorm and we have a shared kitchen. Yes, so we paid for it. four million Indonesian Rupiahs, which is about 200 pounds or 230 dollars, so for one meal we have a set budget of 300,000 Indonesian Rupiahs for both of us per day, so we'll eat out, have our lunch and go out to eat. our dinner, yes that makes it about 10 million a month, still very low but we can easily include two million on top of that. I would add, uh, like going out to eat somewhere, going out somewhere, yeah, going out for a drink, etc. So two million extra for the gym membership, we have a pretty affordable and pretty cheap gym that we will go to, so we don't pay a monthly membership, but we pay for a pass, yeah, so the day passes cost us fifty thousand Indonesian Rupiahs. for the two of us again for the two of us per day that makes it six hundred thousand Indonesian Rupiahs for the two of us as an average yes, on average uh now we rent a scooter uh per month it costs us exactly one million Indonesian Rupiahs yes, but you can get It cheaper you can definitely get it cheaper you can get it for 800k so I would say 1 million with gas too easily and gas is very very affordable so you can cover an entire scooter with gas for a million a month . and the phones, uh, how much do we pay one hundred thousand Indonesian Rupiahs a month for 28 days, yeah, and that's about 20 gigs, 15 gigs of Internet and unlimited calls and messages, so 200,000 Indonesian Rupiahs a month, of which none We talk about both of us. sure we are paying because it's really up to you what type of insurance you choose to have and we don't talk about some other things that you may not have to pay for like everything, yes, cosmetics, perfumes, toothpaste, etc.
Yeah, we didn't mention that too, but we'll cover it in the next video for sure, so in total we come to 14 million Indonesian Rupiahs, which is about 770 British pounds and that's about 1000 US dollars, so 1000 American dollars. is the price we are paying for two of us for two of us in basic Bali living basically very basically um I would probably add another two hundred dollars to be on the safe side and have absolutely everything covered twelve hundred dollars in total for the two of us, for which is durable, very feasible and very affordable. Yes, if you have any questions, please ask us if you have any questions about visas, if you have any questions about the eulogy, where to find it and so on and things to do, we are here, yes, or you can message us on Instagram if you want, yeah, yeah, Instagram or leave a comment or whatever you feel, whatever you feel like, we'll answer all your questions.
The last thing we wanted to mention was the weather in the valley and the temperature,as you've seen during today's video, we start off sunny, so basically the first half of the day is sunny, the second half of the day is not as sunny, rainy and cloudy, but we are in the middle of a rainy season.
