  • Chiang Mai used to be N.1 for the digital nomad life.
    It is still great and you can find really cheap apartments (300-400$) and restaurants (2-3$ for a main).
    Wouldn’t recommend staying there during the burning season.
    The best area is Nimman, but it’s also the most expensive. You can stay in the old city that’s very nice but that gets noisy during the weekend for the night markets.
    Last but not least, very safe city.
    All in all would go back in a heartbeat.

  • Bengaluru, January 4-9, and 13-13, 2020. Had a good time in Bengaluru ( formerly Bangalore). At first I stayed at the Parijatha Gateway Hotel, Near Soap Factory Metro, which was ideal for my purposes. Transit & shopping was nearby, and there was a mall and good food. The Metro in BLR is VERY modern and smooth- be prepared to be patted down (women and men separately) to get into the station, and you can but a metrocard at the ticket window. In Bangalore the internet is VERY fast (it is India

  • After having lived here for two months, I’ve got to say that this must be one of the worst places in Asia. The only reason I am still here is because I’m stuck due to the covid-19 situation. There is nothing to do here, except going for a walk at the beach. No events, no social life, no activities. Mind you, this has nothing to do with the current situation, it was the same before things got shut down because of the virus.
    The locals don’t really like foreigners and you can feel that often, eve

  • The noise pollution here is insane. The prayer calls from the mosques seem to reverberate throughout Penang. Seems like they are competing for who can be the loudest. This really ruined Penang for me and I cut my time short.

  • Honestly, this is an awesome place to be if you’re actually trying to get work done. It’s a bit of an older vibe than Canggu, and there’s certainly a big chunk of yogi’s kicking around — but I liked it much better than Canggu and found it less pretentious. Plus, you can drive down there in 45mins whenever you want some beach or party vibes.
    As others mentioned, there’s some great coworking spaces, cheap warungs, some really nice spots to stay cheaply if you go just outside of the mad tourist

  • Terrible internet even taxi drivers can’t use maps and don’t know where they are going. Super boring. Congested with traffic and horns. No infrastructure. Bums everywhere. Sketchy people. Davao city is a scary and weird place. There are zero foreigners here. Check the expat group on Facebook it’s a handful of creepy old men. I guess Filipinos that live here that are pumping up the reviews for this place because they are proud of where they are from and love their president and his beloved city.

  • People
    – People are generally friendly
    – Not too many scams like BKK
    – Scams are low here because the city doesn’t have the same attractions like BKK
    – Never ran in to a Digital Nomad here like Chiang Mai
    Language
    – English level is very low
    – If they can speak a little bit of English the people are shy to use it
    – Languages that you can use to get by are Thai, Cambodian and Lao
    Health
    – Hospitals have long line ups throughout the day.
    – Locals go in the morning to take a number, when their t

  • Cebu city isn’t safe, and internet is really slow unless you have a fiber connection.
    Most of areas are unsafe at night, some are sort of dangerous at daylight too.
    Even in deep province of Cebu island (such as Carcar city) I’ve been feeling much safer than here.
    Also don’t forget about terrible road traffic and the fact that most of locals here doesn’t speak English.

  • A very poor city, not comparable to any other in SEA (maybe Phnom Penh, in Cambodia). Not much to see and do, particularly I can’t see any advantages to stay here, as Thailand, Indonesia and even Malaysia offer better option with higher quality for the same price.

  • I stayed in Pokhara for a few months and it is a friendly place with a good music scene. there are plenty of amazing trekking opportunities around in the Himalayas. the people are very friendly and it’s easy to make friends. Lots of travelers here are smoking weed, it seems to be pretty legal here. internet speeds are good (probably 15 up and down on average but I stayed in one place that was hitting 30) but power cuts are frequent in the summer (monsoon) months. Many hotels, guest houses, airbn

  • Sri Lanka is a great country to visit and explore on vacation, but it is not good for nomading.
    The internet is the worst I’ve experienced in 3 years of travelling around SE Asia. Usually I would supplement terrible wifi with mobile data but I found this also terrible. I visited several places in Sri Lanka, including supposedly up-and-coming nomad destination Welligama. There are very few cafes that are fit for working (almost none with AC/power), Western food is expensive (and so is Sri Lankan

  • Uluwatu is an amazing place, in my opinion way better than Canggu and even Ubud. Why? There’s not much traffic, beaches are amazing, there’s a significant Brazilian/Portuguese community around which reflects in ethnic restaurants pretty good and affordable. Surf culture is present, so the laid back lifestyle. Maybe it’s hard to find an actual “home”, I always prefer to stay in cheap guesthouses such as 3D Homestay, with a nice swimming pool. Enjoy the morning in the beach and catch the

  • Kaohsiung is a more relaxed city as compared to other major cities in Asia. You can enjoying working and taking vacation in this warm city. However, it is not quiet a English speak city. So, it is better if you know some simple Chinese here. It also close to Kenting, a beautiful beach area in Taiwan. Good place for remote working and vacation.

  • Kuching is a great place to base yourself, it’s a vibrant yet quiet little city with access to all sorts of outdoor activities. I stayed at the Borneo Seahare Guesthouse for about 5 months. It is run by a western guy called Ben and his wife Syeda, they really helped me out with everything I needed and gave me a very reasonable rate on a private room. The internet was good and the place had everything I needed including a full kitchen for me to cook. Based right in the city center with loads of s

  • Gili Air is a wonderful tropical island with good enough internet, amazing beaches and affordable accommodation and food. The locals are super friendly and it’s super safe.
    There is a party and live music every night for those that feel like socialising(with the exception of Thursday nights). There’s a well equipped gym, Salsa dancing Night every Monday at the schick-kitsch mexican restaurant, stand up paddle, lots of wonderful yoga shalas, kite surfing, snorkelling, diving and lots of food opti
