When we were on the plane to Bali in 2009, we were brainstorming the idea of starting a blog. At that time, there weren’t any good websites that shared Bali tips (except for the ones covering the main tourist attractions). There was no social media, except for Facebook, and even that wasn’t big yet. Once we arrived on the island, we noticed so many cool things happening and new spots opening that we launched our blog WE LIKE very shortly after setting foot on the island. We brought our camera everywhere and started sharing our favorite spots, beaches, waves, and places to stay on the blog. Then, when Instagram came along, we could share our tips even easier, which really helped other travelers coming to Bali. Our blog stayed very creative and more photo diary style, while our following was asking us on a daily basis to help them with their travel planning. So, that’s when we decided to create our own travel guides. In 2015 we launched our first edition, We like Bali Islandlife Guide,with our ultimate 300 tips, spots and must go’s. That lead us to launching it as an eGuide for on the go, and we also created a Canggu Guide, which is our favorite little surfer village. Last year, we also launched a Dutch language version with a publisher in The Netherlands, so whenever we walk into a bookstore in Holland, we see our little tropical book lying there, which is still very surreal!
After the Travel Guide launched, we decided to follow our love of fashion and got into designing our own islandstyle clothing and swimwear line. So, our very own online store “Shop Welikebali” was born! This year we are having many exciting things ahead with the shop and our platform We Like Bali. We’re excited to help everyone have the most amazing time in Bali and at the same time make it even more memorable by offering our guides and sunkissed goods!
