The Best of Canggu: Why You Should Visit Bali

With so many amazing cities around the world, it’s often hard to choose where to go. Bali, is high up on many people’s bucketlists and it’s no wonder. With amazing natural landscape, a wonderful culture, fantastic food and stunning sunsets, this is why you should visit Bali.

What’s Canggu, Bali like?

Canggu is a surf town on the island of Bali, Indonesia. Bali is a naturally beautiful island with stunning beaches, sunsets, rice paddies and waterfalls, to name a few. The religion on the island is Hindu and the people are incredibly friendly and happy.

Canggu is for you if you enjoy a laidback pace of life, surfing or strolling on the beach, meeting new people, networking and eating delicious, healthy food.


The climate is tropical, warm and humid with rainy season October through April and dry season May through September. Rainy season is still a nice time to visit Bali, although December and January are often very wet months.


The food in Bali is something else. With so many Australian expats, there are a ton of Australian influenced cafes and restaurants. They all have healthy choices and you can find a smoothie bowl or avocado on toast just about anywhere. The local food is served at warungs and consist of a lot of rice and eggs and tempeh. If you’re vegetarian or vegan, Canggu has endless options for you.

We recommend The Shady Shack for delicious, super healthy bites, Crate Cafe for large, cheap breakfasts and Dandelion for an authentic, Indonesian meal in a nice garden setting. The best way to find new places though is to hop on your scooter and zip around the streets to find your favorite spots to chow down.

Bali is home to thousands of expats, and the community is always growing. There are regularly various events and meetups occurring and we work closely with our workspace partners to share them. For the absolute best community feel we recommend Dojo Bali to really connect with others, learn at masterminds and make life long friends. They also regularly hold cultural trips and community outreach programs to clean up Bali and learn more about the local culture.

Weekend Trips

For a weekend trip we always recommend checking out Ubud, the yoga/zen oasis in the heart of the rice fields. Not a far drive, this charming town in the jungle has lots to see and is a great place to get away and recharge.

For a more fast-paced trip, we recommend Uluwatu, the amazing surf spot just a couple hours drive. Here you can watch the surfers by day then head to a beach club for an afternoon of letting loose.
