Digital Nomads are the ones you see in ads on Facebook, Instagram and other popular social media sites, showing off how they make thousands a month while travelling the world. It all comes down to them being able to use telecommunications to achieve their work from wherever they are in the world. Below are the top destinations for Digital Nomads.
Chiang Mai, Thailand, is probably known as the number one travel destination for digital nomads. This is due to multiple reasons. For example, in Thailand, the cost of accommodation is very affordable, the food prices are cheap and there are a ton of Wi-Fi locations.
Most people tend to plan on just visiting, but due to the easy living and freedom, many stay a lot longer than anticipated. Not only is it cheap to live, but the days out and experiences you can have in Chiang Mai are once in a lifetime.
Budapest, the Hungarian capital has become a very popular location to visit in recent years. This could be due to the low cost of living or the crazy nightlife. However, Budapest is better to visit in the summer months when everything comes to life.
There is also Wi-Fi readily available across the city and there are a ton of cool chill out spaces to work. The only downside is the unpredictable weather, but as people have said, visit in summer and you shouldn’t have any problems.
Another Thailand destination, however, there is a huge difference. Chiang Mai is very chilled out whereas Bangkok is very full on. It is known world-wide for its incredible nightlife and the huge shopping centres. No matter where you are in Bangkok, something will be going on.
Not only that, but the cost of living in Bangkok isn’t much more than Chiang Mai. It may be a little bit more expensive, however, compared to other locations, it is classed as cheap.
The Czech capital Prague is another location that has slowly become more and more popular. The location is gorgeous, there are some must see architecture and not only that, but it’s not going to burn a hole in your pocket.
The cost of living comes in at about the same price as Budapest, so it’s not super cheap, but it’s not going to cost you thousands a month. On top of this, there are a huge number of locations such as cafes and bars where you can sit down, jump on the Wi-Fi and get some work done.
Also, if you time it right, every year in May there is a Festival. The Czech Beer Festival takes place every year for 17 days. That’s correct, 17 whole days for a beer festival which features roughly 120 different beers that you can try.
Now that you have some insight to some of the top Digital Nomad destinations, get online and get looking for your next location. There’s no point holding back, if you have a dream and want to work abroad without the stress of being sat in the same cubicle every day, book that ticket and don’t look back!
