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.

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

I stuck here due COVID 19 quarantine. And it's best place to be right now. There are no big diifference compare to normal life. Locals are still friendly. Goverment doesn't pushes too much if you follow 2 simple rules: no partys due carantin and wear mask. Beaches are one of the best i've ever been and now they empty and even more clean. Food delivery works fine, Internet is good if you use your own line, and it's cheap to do. Great place to be here!

One giant tourist trap. Giant hordes of rich Europeans vacationing with their parents credit cards.
