Best Cities for Digital Nomads

Here’s a list of our favorite cities for digital nomads.

For a city to make it on this list:

  • It must be great for long stay (1+ month). That means there are enough of things to do and places to visit. There are grocery stores and / or great cafe culture. We both are foodies, so food matters to us.
  • It must feel good to be there. True, it’s very subjective, but that’s why it’s our list – a list of our favorite cities for digital nomads and remote workers. See our “about us” to learn more about what kind of people we are and what we like to have in destinations we visit.
  • There must be enough of things to do. A bonus point if it’s outdoors / hiking trails / beach. Having lots of great and cute cafes, like in Luang Prabang, Laos, counts as well.

Cities are sorted in no particular order.

1. Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

2. Bangkok, Thailand

3. Chiang Mai, Thailand

6. “Bali”, Indonesia

We have visited Bali several times, spending a total of around 1 year on the island.

We have never stayed in Canggu, a town where majority of digital nomads stay in Bali. But we loved Ubud and during the pandemic (when there were hardly any tourists) also Kuta.
