About Bali Buddies

Bali Buddies has a team of Bali lovers that produce content, market Bali and answer questions, led by the Founder Karlie Cummins.

Karlie is an Australian expat living with her family in Sanur, Bali. After 15 years of travelling to Bali as a tourist, Karlie moved to live in Bali full time with her husband and two children in 2017. 

Karlie founded Bali Buddies in 2012 and has been helping people to enjoy the best of Bali ever since, whether as a tourist or a resident. She founded Bali Buddies to share her love of Bali and to encourage others to explore more of the Island she now calls home. 

Bali Buddies is proud to work with many of the Island’s best business, support a number of Bali based charities, cooperate with the Tourism Board and act as an intermediary with the Australian media when it comes to reporting on Bali.

What We Can Do for You​

We can promote your business to hundreds of thousands of travellers each month. We make it a point to not just publish articles, but ensure each piece of content we write is SEO optimised to get to the right people at the right time. The exposure and influence we provide your brand ensures that our readers think of you first while planning their time in Bali.

Our current website page views are 30,000+. We have just launched our new site and we expect this number to increase rapidly. We have a global audience, with most traffic coming from Australia and Indonesia.

We also recently started a Facebook group called “name of the group” where people can ask and answer questions, find inspiration for their Bali travel and get help from us and other Bali travellers to plan their time in Bali.

However, we have something not many other destination marketers have; a highly engaged social media audience with a monthly reach of over 1 million! (1,8 million in November 2020, so imagine what this will be like when we can actually travel again).

If you feel we’re the right for your business, let us know your preferences, goals and budgets, and we can work out a tailor-made advertising package for you.

We also recommend you sign up for our partner newsletter below. This is a monthly newsletter specifically for businesses wanting to target Bali travellers to keep them up to date with all things Bali.
