Finding places to stay in Indo is not a big problem at all, after all you have to remember that the main source of income on Indo is through the tourism industry, thus locating a place to stay will be easy but expect to pay tourist prices wherever you go. There is no such thing as just living the life for a year, otherwise we would all be doing it. What it takes a good few months graft where you live and save money that way, and besides that the longest touris visa is two months, after that you need to apply for a second visa which takes a further week, which in turn means you would have to leave the country for a week while waiting for your second visa. Rather just go for a holiday, its much less hassel!!!

yes kale once again another yank has no idea about anything, aussie dont try and own the place theres a lot of us there becaus eits the closest country to aus same as mexico is full of yanks. anyways as kale has no idea ill inform u, a 2month visa ISNT the longest visa at all, you can recieve a 6 month social visa that requires you get a "sponsor" in indo, it means your there to learn the language, soak up culture etc, all you need is an indo who can write a letter saying all this for you and say you will be living with them etc, ist very easy, this visa must also be renewed every 2 months but u do not have to leave the country,

also kale has even less of a clue, a 2 month visa can be renewed in bali with dodgy travel agents im not giving names work it out yourself, you do not have to leave, also as for always paying tourist price, you can work deals with some places in indo to stay for free its up to you,also the main source of income is NOT through tourism kale your not a smart one are ya, the population of indo is 243000000 not even 1% is involved in tourism, as for living the life a whole year its very easy you just have to use your brain. im sick of yank who think they know it all when kale obviously hasnt got a clue about indo or the people.

do the boarder boogie.if i was you guys i would divide my stay into 2 diff. surf spots/countries like Indo and Philippines and go back and forth renewing your travel visa every time.Singapore is a good country to make a couple day stay as the embassies r all here and close tighter. from sing to Bali 150US$ and im going to Philippines (Manila, Cebu and Davoa) from Sing round trip for 250US$ but the rest of your living can be. Dude just come out to Asian for like 3–4 months, don’t be a bum just have a budget and trip around and have a blast. Forget the year thing , just come out here first, how knows you might be able to stretch it to 6-7 months.

I just came home from a 4 months stay on Bali. Had a student visa, and there's no problem getting it renewed several times. I know a couple of girls who makes "american" paychecks at nightclubs, but it's not worth it. Others have made it as drummers, owning designshops, and designing bikinis. But as I said, no real money comes out of it...
Save the cash back home, find some friends to bring along, and buy a house! When you go back home, there's plenty of people you could rent it out to.
Have fun, and try Mentawaiis and Sumbawa aswell!

What is this website some comp to see who is the bigger wanker the aussies or the yanks, well your all clueless, if you ask me. I spent my first seventeen years of my life living in Java and Bali, then came back to Adelaide. I got work over there in Bali getting good pay at a few resorts doing tourism work, it's not what you know it's who you know, And i was getting paid in u.s money so it was all good. Indo is more safer than America and Australia to travel, just don't act like a dick.
