21 years of service to expats in Indonesia

As of September 1, 2018, this site has been online for 21 years ... helping expats ease their transition to life in Indonesia!

Living in Indonesia, A Site for Expatriates provides information for expatriates who are planning their move to Indonesia, who are newly arrived, have resided here for several years or are long-term seasoned veterans. You'll never know when the information exchanged here could be useful to you! Or you may just want to post questions on the Living in Indonesia Expat Forum and share your thoughts and feelings with other expats.

A small group of dedicated volunteers developed this website (launched in September 1997) with the lofty goal of becoming a comprehensive information site for expats in Indonesia. We've targeted the specific information needs of expats - from advice on everyday concerns, to great family getaways, to how to cope with the normal frustrations of adjusting to your new life in Indonesia, to where to buy something that you need.
