If you’re looking for a place to work remotely, you might want to consider becoming a digital nomad. Digital nomads are people who use technology to live and work outside the traditional office setting. They are able to live anywhere in the world that they choose with their laptop as their only essential item. In this blog post, we will discuss 10 of the best places around the world for digital nomads!

The digital nomad lifestyle is fast-paced, exciting, and full of new adventure. The best part about it? You get to pick where you work. Whether you’re a seasoned pro or just dipping your toes into the world of remote jobs, there’s something for everyone in this list of 10 destinations that are perfect for digital nomads.

1. Chiang Mai, Thailand 

A lot of people have been contacting me lately, asking how to become a digital nomad in Chiang Mai. It’s not that hard, but there are some things you need to know before making the jump. That’s why I’m writing this blog post – to give you the inside scoop on what it takes and what you should expect if you want to be a digital nomad in Thailand.

Chiang Mai is a great place to be for digital nomads. It’s not too expensive, it has plenty of coworking spaces and coffee shops with fast internet connections (and the occasional free beer), there are tons of co-working events going on every week – you name an activity that would make your life as a remote worker easier… Chiang Mai does have!  

There are a couple of downsides. The weather can get pretty hot during certain months so if this isn’t something which bothers people in general then I don’t think we need worry about it. But other than some heat waves here and there; Thailand offers everything any aspiring location independent entrepreneur could want: cheap living expenses + low cost flights from various locations.

Another issue could be that during certain months the local farmers burn their fields to “reset” them prior to planting new seeds, the air quality can drop a lot during this burning season .

There are plenty of coworking spaces and coffee shops where you can work from if you decide to do so. The cost of living is low, the food and culture are amazing. There’s a lot to do here so if you’re looking for an exotic destination with plenty going on.

3. Ubud, Bali 

Have you always wanted to become a digital nomad but never knew where to start? I remember the feeling well. But that is all in the past now because I have found an amazing place for you- Ubud, Bali.

Ubud has everything you need as a digital nomad; it’s got cheap living, great internet speeds and lots of cafes with free WiFi. It also has plenty of amenities such as grocery stores, pharmacies, restaurants and bars nearby so you can enjoy life without having to spend your money on food or drinks.

This place would be perfect if you want some international flair from other countries close by; Your work needs something different than what they are used to seeing every day at home (i.e. more creative); If there isn’t much difference between where you live now vs Bali then this could make sense because everything will just feel like “home” again after being away from your home town.

Bangkok has many coworking spaces and it s really popular location for Digital Nomads as it’s easy to find a space with fast wifi, good coffee and plenty of other digital nomads.

The best time for Bangkok is the cool season from November through February when it s not too hot or humid but there are still enough warm days left that you can enjoy outdoor activities like biking around town in relative comfort (or even on your own bike if bring one). If visiting during this period make sure pack light clothing such as shorts & T-shirts because evenings will be cooler than daytime temperatures which average about 30 degrees Celsius year round!
