One of the best advantages of technological advancements is the fact that it has given us so much more freedom in the way we work. The fact that so many jobs can be done remotely means you can travel and work from anywhere you want in the world and become what’s known as a digital nomad. Of course, cost of living is still important to take into considering, so here are some of the best cities for digital nomads to live and work in.
Often overlooked as a tourist destination, Tallinn has become known as Europe’s next Silicon Valley. Not only that, it is absolutely stunning. The Old Town has been named a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is full of Gothic architecture, plenty of dining options, and lots of historical landmarks.
Da Nang, Vietnam
While living in a large city like Ho Chi Minh City or Hanoi, Da Nang’s advantage is that is still pretty unknown. That means there are fewer tourists while still providing the same amenities of a big, bustling city. Enjoy the most delicious pho, buy fresh coconuts on the beach, and rent a motorbike and drive over Hai Van Pass.
Budapest is an ideal city for anyone who is filled with wanderlust. It has a rich history, a diverse culture, delicious and affordable food, and best of all, a low cost of living as compared to other major cities. Its Neo-Renaissance architecture has made it one of Europe’s most beautiful cities.
Valencia has become quite popular with digital nomads because it is affordable, is full of public parks, has long stretches of beautiful beaches, and plenty of cafes to sit and work. Immerse yourself in Spanish culture without the noise of Barcelona.
Lisbon’s reputation as a co0working community has been growing, and it’s clear why so many flock to this city. With 300 days of sunshine each year, incredible nightlife, and delicious food, there are certainly worse places to spend your time at. Lisbon has a growing tech scene but is still very laidback.
