The family arrived in Bali Friday for the nine-day trip, during which the former president is scheduled to speak at an Indonesian Diaspora Congress in Jakarta on July 1.

Indonesian President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo invited the family to visit the country after Obama left office, and even asked the family of four to tour the presidential Bogor Palace in West Java during their stay.

The trip is a bit of a homecoming for Barack Obama, who lived in Indonesia in 1967 when he was 6 years old after his mother, Ann Dunham, took a second husband, Lolo Soetoro, who is Indonesian. He later returned to Hawaii to live with his grandparents at age 10.

But the pair's record-setting $60 million book deal should cover the trip's costs.
