Happy New Year! – Our Best of 2019

We’re leaving 2019 and the twenty-teens and marching into a new decade. And what a year it’s been!

We’ve had national and local elections, ground-breaking changes to laws, rules and regulations geared to making investment easier, lots of initiatives around going green including banning single-use plastics, international sporting events and awards, tremendous steps forward in technology, developing news on infrastructure, a new airport in North Bali, property investment opportunities and growth in Lombok and Flores.

We hope we’ve managed to keep you informed with property news, tourism trends, changes to rules and regulations and some general insights into investing in Bali and we’d like to thank all of you for supporting us in 2019.

And with that, we’d like to share our pick of this year’s most popular blogs. There are seven of them, of course!
