Moving to asia

I hope to receive information for the best place for me to start my life in Indonesia. I am N American, and have lived and traveled in Central and S America for the last 1 1/2 years and decided Asia may be a better place for me to retire. I would like to be near a beach, close to a larger city , not in a large city. I lived in Canoa, Ecuador a small fishing village 6 hour by bus north of Guayaquil and would like something similar. I understand I would need a sponsor to have an extended stay. Any helpful comments and suggestions are appreciated

Well, I lived in Bali for 2 years and loved it. Don't know your budget so can't really recommend anything but Lovina Beach area is quiet and not too far from Singaraja. I, personally, did not care for the area but that's just me. Most of the time I lived in Kerobokan. Look at a map of Bali - Denpasar is all the business/metro area and also where the airport is. Ubud, in the central part of the island is very artsy, hilly and beautiful. The communities from Sanur to Nusa Dua to Cangu are all nice - some expensive and some cheap - if you can live in a simple Bali style house, you should find something for $300-$500/month. You have to pay rent for 1 year - no month to month. You can get a 6 month visa - there are all kinds of "agents" look for a storefront - they're all over. You'll have to fly out after 1 month but then you just pay a monthly fee and you can stay another 5 months. If you find an employer, find out if they'll get you a Kitas, which will enable you to stay without all the hassle.

Forgot to mention that I also lived in Panama for 2 years. I guess I liked Bali more but Panama has great fishing which is hard to beat!
