Coconuts Bali Features

As with all of our other city sites, at the very heart of Coconuts Bali is our features section. Original content straight outta Bali, written and produced by the Coconuts Bali team and freelancer friends. Long reads, photo essays, interviews, opinion pieces, and columns about some of Bali’s most salient, relevant, and intriguing topics. Stories range anywhere from human interest to in-depth investigative reports. Informative original reports, handy ultra-handy explainer guides, and humorous, laugh-your-socks-off pieces. Laugh til you cry, cry til you laugh, get inspired, get angry, feel the content. Leave knowing a heck of a lot more about what’s really going on in Bali than you did coming in. Typically longer in length than our quick, super-digestible news feed, our features go much deeper than the news section—but trust us, it is worth the time, so sit down and make sure to get comfortable as you delve way down into the core of our site. Bali has got so much more going on than all the humdrum guidebooks, glossy travel magazines, and superficial Instagram photos will have you believe, so come on and let us show you what is really happening on this amazing island, for better or for worse, whether it is meeting a new intriguing character or better understanding a widely-reported topic and seeing it from a different perspective. Take the time to get up close and personal with the people, groups, trends, phenomenon, and places that our stories explore.
