Candy Tolentino is a seasoned traveler having visited over 40 countries, with a deep love for Bali. Having solo tripped over 15 times to Bali, Tolentino is well-versed about this island paradise – from the beautiful shores and nature to the welcoming culture and affordable living environment, she is an ultimate authority on the ins and outs of settling in Bali.
When travelers and digital nomads come to the exotic island of Bali, they are often enchanted by the culture, cuisine, and tropical beauty that await them. But there is more to Bali than meets the eye. While barely known in the western world about 15 years ago, this island paradise is fast becoming a favored destination for digital nomads, solo travelers, and adventure seekers on the lookout for extraordinary life experiences.
“Bali is a place where dreams become manifest quickly, emotions and feelings are intensified, and darkness turns to light“, enthuses Tolentino.
Her website and podcast, Dreaming of Bali, explores how expats adapt to the culture, language, and climate of Bali. From navigating the bureaucracy of visas and work permits, to finding housing, learning the local language and customs, to simply making friends, Tolentino’s YouTubeTM channel and podcast have documented their stories of both joys and struggles while living on this island paradise.
A key part of Tolentino’s offering aims to provide resources and information that will enable expats to make their lives in Bali easier and more enriching. It’s not only about providing tips and advice — it’s also about sharing the joys and triumphs of life in Bali. By sharing stories of joy, courage, resilience, and hope, Tolentino hopes to inspire others to take the leap and make their dream of living in Bali a reality.
