While digital nomads still have plenty of work to do, they have the freedom to travel and explore along the way. If you are looking for your next destination, or want to find a place to meet up with your digital nomad friend, we are highlighting the top X places for digital nomads.
What makes a good destination for digital nomads?
To successfully travel while making money, you should look for places with free internet, and cheap costs. The idea is to have clients from high play places like the US or UK, but travel or live in a place where the cost of living is much lower. (See this guide to geo arbitrage) That way, you can create yourself a nice little pot of savings to use along the way.
While most people look to reduce their physical assets before starting a nomadic lifestyle, there is always the option to buy parking back home, so you know you have got a car when you get back. Parkon.com specializes in airport parking across the States so if you are only heading away for a few weeks at a time, you might find parking more affordable than you first think.
Top destinations for digital nomads
Research by InsureMyTrip found that Norway is at the top of the list for the best destinations. Based on their rating, Norway scored a huge 7.8/10. The country accepts nomadic lifestyles and offer a remote working visa for different durations of time. They have also got great internet speed – crucial for your remote working life. Norway is often voted as one of the happiest places in the world, which makes it all the more desirable for those that can set up shop there.
Time and time again Bali, Indonesia, appears on dreamy destination lists that are perfect for nomads. Why? Well, there are incredible views, affordable yet luxurious accommodation, top quality Wi-Fi and a great culture.
Bali is the perfect place to create the work life balance you have always dreamed of, with jungle and beaches to explore in your spare time. It does not get much better than that. As it is so popular with nomads, you will have a great community of people in the same boat – which means it is the perfect place to network, meet new people and enjoy socializing.
Vietnam (and a lot of countries in that part of the globe) is another popular choice for digital nomads thanks to the cheap prices and great weather. But Vietnam also has a great history and culture, delicious food and a whole world of different landscape to explore.
Spend the days taking advantage of the great quality Wi-Fi and finish the night in the happiest of food comas.
So, these are just three of the top destinations for digital nomads, but the world really is your oyster. If you have some savings, you will be able to splurge from time to time on more costly locations while budgeting in cheaper locations. Wherever you end up, do not forget to keep on working so you can continue to enjoy the adventure!
