Leopardfish  Country Guide



With just over 250 million people, Indonesia is one of the largest and most culturally and ethically diverse populations in the world. It’s colorful, exotic and rich in natural resources – not to mention its unique archipelago topography consisting of around 18,000 islands. Most expats land in either the giant metropolis of Jakarta or the popular tourist destination of Bali. The quality of life for a middle class western expat who teaches at an international school tends to be quite luxurious in that high proportion of them possess domestic help who fill such roles as maid, chef, nanny and driver. Expats will also find urban life quite cosmopolitan, full of trendy cafes and restaurants, shopping malls, cinemas and a number of impressive cultural institutions that provide a taste of the fine and performing arts. Of course, the modern is quite regularly juxtaposed with the old, providing urban life a continuous flare of the exotic. Of course, Indonesia also provides a number of natural wonders including some of the best diving spots in the world. Indeed, the country is ideal for any expat who’s passionate about water sports. The safety of expats in Indonesia varies around the country, but Bali and Jakarta tend only to be plagued by small theft such as pick pocketing. Generally speaking, western families feel quite secure in Indonesia and are also fortunate that many locals speak at least basic English. This makes navigation, retail shopping, doing personal business and dealing with the government a bit more easy.

Satisfying sights on the quality of life in Indonesia.

Cost of Living

Cost of living

Residing in Indonesia is most definitely good on the expat’s budget. Indeed, according to Xpatulator’s July 2016 report, the cost of living in Indonesia is dramatically lower than the international average. This becomes apparent when one purchases any number of goods and services such as healthcare, transport, furniture and appliances, clothing, an Internet plan, personal care items, groceries, restaurant meals and retail recreational activities. The only item which appears to be pricey is alcohol, and that shouldn’t be too big of a surprise given that this is a Muslim country. If a western expatriate negotiates a fair contract with his or her international school employer, he or she should not only be able to live very comfortably but also save some money as well.
