yes - Oct 2015

Yes, on food, groceries, and household help. Gas for your car is also subsidized and cheap. Many expas/diplomats get some kind of hardship pay which also helps. - Oct 2012

Yes, if you don't go to Bali every weekend. - May 2012

Absolutely. This town is one of the greatest bargains ever. - Aug 2009
