  • Bali is amazing, but Canggu isn’t really that great — actually there are SO MANY better places, like Uluwatu, Gili Islands or even Ubud that I can’t understand the hype. As almost everyone said below, beaches are crappy, roads are terrible, sidewalks are non-existent and having a motorbike is a must. On the other side, food is great and cafes are pretty reasonable with all those incredible bowls. Anyway I wouldn’t recommend it for more than a week.

  • 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.

  • Came to CDMX from NYC. Lived in a bunch of cities around the US. CDMX is my favorite. That being said, it’s still Latin America. Take precautions. I grew up in the NYC area around the gangs and stuff of the 90s and 00s. Here are a few tips to strongly consider
    1) Live in Polanco, no farther north than Juarez, no father south than Escandon (unless you’re going to Coyocan), no farther east than Roma or Doctores. All assuming you want to be near some action. Don’t listen to these wannabe «woke» pe

  • Ericeira will be the Canggu of Europe, I think.
    It’s the surf capital of Europe, so it has the surfers. It has the hipster cafes with nice coffee, although they are quite tiny and need to be bigger.
    It has amazing restaurants, especially sea food but also typical hipster food.
    It has the same type of people you’ll see in Canggu and Bali.
    Right now there’s a coworking space called Salt but it’s small, cramped and insufficient. What Ericeira needs is a big moder well designed coworking spac

  • I spent one year in Istanbul and it’s absolutely amazing. The city is really safe, I went back home really late during the night, walking, without any problem. Parties are really fun and there are all kinds of spots to have fun (bars, nightclubs, restaurants…). The city has a lot of cafés to work at and most of them have free and reliable wifi. Definitely recommend!

  • This island is a total gem. It has everything one desires in a paradise island! There is a huge higher consciousness/yoga/meditation/vegetarian/vegan community plus epic full moon and half moon parties, omg totally worth checking out! And the internet connectivity and speed on the island is good too. I’ve had no problem doing work from my laptop as a Digital Marketing Specialist either.

  • Been living here in Buenos Aires for almost three years. Right now, it’s (relatively) cheap. I mean, it isn’t for the people who currently lives here but it’s if you’re a foreign, as the inflation keeps going on the peso isn’t that worthy now. But, as I’m saying, if you come with dollars is going to make a huge difference.
    (3 years ago: 20 pesos= 1 USD.
    June 2020: 95 pesos= 1 USD. and if you’re selling dollars in the informal market they will pay you $124. and with that you can buy two small

  • 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

  • Better than Lisbon, much more cozy and welcoming. You can find cheaper places in the “other side of the bridge”, in the municipality of Vila Nova de Gaia. Public transports works and is pretty convenient, most part of the city is covered by tram stations. Beaches are freezing cold but nice for a running. Don’t miss the daily sunsets in the garden nearby the bridge, eating pastel de nata and drinking a bottle of Porto Wine. But please, don’t clap your hands to the sun — only Brazilian t

  • 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

  • Doesn’t matter what you’re interested in, Saint Petersburg has it. It’s the largest «small» city in Europe. Such a large population, but everything you want in nightlife and action is packed into several districts. Best city in Europe for nightlife. Not sure why nomadlist has «safety» as a con because it’s safer than any western europe city and every american city. Cheaper than Thailand, but winter is COLD.

  • Didn’t plan to come to Zagreb, and so had no expectations. Turned out to be a lovely, liveable city, so much so that I extended my stay by several weeks! Contrary to some of the comments from a year ago, it is now very vegan friendly, cards are universally accepted, steady WiFi si abundant, and many other people are working from coffee shops. The city is very walkable, and more affordable than Split or Dubrovnik.

  • My girlfriend and I lived in Belgrade for over a month and absolutely loved it! It has a bit of a raw feeling and the indoor smoking is something that’s hard to get used to, but in general we felt welcomed with open arms with pretty much everyone we’ve been in contact with.
    We were particularly fond of the Dorcol region to stay, eat and live. The castle area is great for a walk on a sunny day.
    Also relevant in pandemic times: the food delivery is amazing (we mostly used Wolt).

  • This place is a total gem! Bali/Thailand vibes + close to US. Also am impressed with their covid policies — not as much mask wearing, but I get an instant no-hassle temperature check virtually every place I go, which is so much smarter than stupid curfews, closures, and quarantine theater I dealt with in the US every day.

  • 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

  • Manila is an incredibly welcoming city and cheap to live. Accommodation in ultra luxurious condos is reasonable, foot massage whilst tapping out emails (£7 per hour) makes working from here a no brainer. Agree living in the Greenbelt area is a no brainer. Vegetarian choices can be limited in some places but excellent (and so cheap!) Delivery services are available, including diet chef stuff which is unaffordable anywhere else. The streets feel safe inside Makati and the areas around greenbelt

  • I stayed here for a month in July last year. There’s lots of cool aspects to the city but I hated it when I was there. The city has a problem with British stag parties, so if you look like you’re a British male and speak English expect to be treated with disdain (it’s fair enough)
    The Hungarians can just generally be unfriendly, especially bartenders. It’s a weird experience waiting to be served while 3 people ignore you.
    Or buying the same drink and getting charged whatever they want (700-1500

  • Living in Bangkok since 2015, I refused to go to Phuket longer than I could. I strongly believed in rumors that Phuket was all about prostitution and dirty beaches… oh, how I was wrong! Phuket is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! I’d say you can find the same conveniences you’re used in Bangkok, but with a beach — actually many of them, ofter pristine and desert if you rent a motorbike and explore by yourself. Forget about Patong and go to Karon, Surin, Kattatani, Paradise and Freedom Beach instead… you’

  • Prices aren’t that low anymore. 1br apartment in the centre would cost you around 400 euros, maybe even 500 if you go for something more luxurious.
    Airbnbs are 40-50 euros per night (central ones).
    Dinner would be anywhere from 5 to 10 euros and even more if you go to the fanciest restaurants.
    There’s a decent tech scene around (lots of software engineers in the city).
    I’m living in Timisoara since 2011.

  • I already living more than 1 year in Warsaw and i still think it’s one of the best cities to live as a nomad as well.
    there is plenty of meetups to meet other expats, the people are nice, its cheap, its very big and not crowded, and very clean,
    pros:
    cheap
    easy to make international friends , as there is many meetups
    great public transport
    plenty of cafes to work from
    warm and honest locals
    the cons :

  • One of the most horrendous cities I’ve ever been to. Too much traffic, ugly architecture and even the food is very much hit and miss. Oh and housing is not that cheap. People can range from very friendly to very much not caring but on average, they’re neither unfriendly nor easy to connect with, even if you speak good Spanish. More than anything, from someone used to the lively vibe in Colombia or Mexico, the place is as lively as a cemetery. No music, not even a peep at night… There’s a reaso

  • Siem Riep has a nice suburb feeling. At first sight it seems there’s not much to do besides Angkor Wat and Pub Street, but you can go swimming, do bicycle tours, floating village day trip…
    I don’t have best social skill, but in Siem Reap it was so easy to make new friends. Locals and tourists!
    I’ve worked at Garage Society Coworking Space. Pretty nice place.
