Lets Start wth Living in Bali

The first thing to think about is that you will be living in Bali for a year  or more (8 weeks for the candidates). Bali is the ideal tropical island paradise and has been voted as the “World’s Best Island” by the readers of Time and Travel & Leisure magazines. Bali is a top international destination for divers and surfers alike. Located in the very cradle of global marine diversity, the variety of fish and coral species to be found there is astounding.

Diving isn’t the only thing to do in Bali. Above water, the island offers amazing panoramas of centuries-old rice terraces and ancient Hindu temples. The cultural experience is a contrastingly subdued backdrop to Bali’sawesome adventure activities like hiking, kite surfing, rafting, bungee jumping and surfing.

The sandy shores of Kuta beckon surfers and divers from all over the island at nightfall.  Kuta’s world-renowned clubs such as Sky Garden, Bounty, Paddy’s, Ocean Beach Club and The Engine Room keep these all-nighters going strong.  The scenery is… well, stunning and plentiful… so what are you waiting for, sign up now, to learn more about how to enter.

Don’t take our word for it…..
