If you want to work abroad, the country that comes to your mind? Well, if you want to work in one of the Asian countries, what country would you choose? 

Perhaps you immediately pictured  Singapore, Tokyo, South Korea, Hong Kong or Malaysia. In some ways these countries is attractive to foreign workers, for example, many multinational companies have regional offices in Tokyo, Singapore or Hong Kong. Salaries and allowances offered perhaps also quite high. However, Indonesia will eventually become a haven for expatriates.

There are many foreign executives or expatriates who want to extend their working lives in Indonesia. Some things unique and interesting for foreign workers, among others:

1. Their salaries are enough to have a maid, babysitter even if they bring their babies and wives.
2. Can buy an additional car for the wife, and paying a driver.
3. Many golf courses in Jakarta and surrounding areas, as well as in other cities, and on weekends to play golf with a fee that is much cheaper than in South Korea, Singapore and Hong Kong especially Japan.
4. Indonesia has many holidays’ national holidays especially Moslems, especially Indonesia is a diverse country with different religions. Indonesian government has recently added a national holiday, the International Labor Day. You will have plenty of opportunity to vacation in Bali or other cities in Indonesia with a low cost plane, staying in hotels or luxury villas in various tourist destinations such as Yogyakarta, Bandung, Lombok, and especially Bali.

5. Indonesia is famous for the culinary tour with a diverse menu, and of course at a price cheaper than cities like Singapore, Hong Kong, especially if you compare it to lunch in Japan.

 If you are holiday in Jakarta, please visit shopping malls such as Pondok Indah Mall, Plaza Senayan, Grand Indonesia or mall in Kuta beach, Bali, and then you will find many wives of expatriates. They come with the kids or friends (wife of fellow expatriates) were enjoying a cappuccino, coffee luwak, or local and international food with a happy face. After that they can choose the clothes, handbags, famous branded perfumes and bring a cart of groceries for weekly or monthly needs.
6. Watch the latest movies in theaters with tickets are very cheap, so that they could watch every week.

7. If you do not receive benefits from the home office , especially for foreign teachers to teach English , then you can rent a room or renting an apartment are also at a low price, depending on the features you need. 
8. If your wife is tired of shopping and a bite to eat at a restaurant or cafe, they can work part-time as a teacher of English, French or Japanese, so you can be the native language courses in different places, and they also had the opportunity to learn Indonesian free. Other activities such as joining with non-profit organizations and social activities can even learn to cook, learn yoga, and join a fitness club that is definitely cheaper than in the U.S. or Europe, as well as a spa club in the country.

9. At the end of the week if you are not on holiday to Bali, then you can buy antique furniture or art objects such as hunting paintings, sculptures and so at attractive prices and you can take it home if you have already completed the employment contract.
10. If you are reluctant to return to your country, then you can apply in other major companies in Indonesia for business and economic growth in this country grow higher than in the U.S. and Europe, which is still slow.

I also found a lot of expatriates from South Korea finally choosing to settle in Indonesia to work in other Korean companies or they set up their own company, for example, makes the plant such as clothing, shoes, accessories or Korean restaurant, mini market which sells specialty foods and beverages Korea.

Indonesia is a fascinating country to make the company in all areas and they have skilled labor, so if you have enough savings you can set up IT companies such as online stores, or other businesses such as travel agencies, restaurants, garment, business consultants and so on.

If you are young, work experience and a diploma from a college or university, you can apply for jobs directly to a multi-national company with offices in Indonesia, or send your cover letter and resume to the portal that offers job opportunities, or you choose a head hunter who have a network in Indonesia. The country is a democratic country and friendly to foreigners.
