In May 2014, I arrived in Northern Thailand to begin a 4 month internship for a digital marketing company.

Like others before me, by the time it came to return โ€˜homeโ€™, Chiang Mai had cast its magic wand and weave over me a spell of serenity that remains to this day.

I did return to Australia - but only long enough to sell my possessions and pack my film equipment.

At that time, Chiang Mai was the world HQ for the digital nomad movement - so I had a ton of help to shift my on-stage income to online. I also
* fell in love (and still am)
* bought a great value condo. I couldn't afford this luxury in Oz
* made my money to go further and not lost to government taxes (like in most western countries)
* learned to relax, stay calm and stop focussing on work
* felt enough freedom to take a day off and Goof Around without feeling guilty that I should be working to pay rent
* found a simple life as stress is debilitating

10 years later I live on a farm where the local shop uses an a ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ

  • Chiang Mai

    Chiang Mai has had a deep Buddhist influence running over the last 1,000 years and this can be felt in the helpfulness, patience and generosity of the Thai and long-term transplants you come across. The city has an active community scene (nomads, spiritual seekers, hikers, creatives), several mountains with hiking spots and waterfalls surrounding the city, over 20 water bodies inside the city -- many have cafes and walks around, several public parks, and over 13 national parks with campgrounds w

    Penang is really, really hot and humid. It's pretty affordable but it's relatively small. Personally, I think traveling Penang is great because you have a mix of cultures but I couldn't stay here for a longer time because it is so unbelievable hot.

  • Tokyo

    2nd time to Tokyo in 2 years. So much to see and do and great value in the past few years due to a declining yen against the USD & Euro. Wework (not open past 6pm & only iceberg open on weekends), Airalo Esim, and Wise Visa are your friend. Check out my Youtube for some nomad guides (Chicvoyage, @digitalnomadworld). I like Roppongi area. Stay in a hotel

    Stay 3 months. Great stay with everything you need. Great food and transportation like any japanese city. I think it's better positioned than Tokyo to visit the highlights of the country. Has everything a digital nomad needs and more. I'm not much of partier but their is a scene with all music genres. People are very friendly but of course helps if you can speak Japanese. Don't have any cons. Would definitely recommend.

The people are kind and always smiling... I prefer Jakarta to Bali ! And I've been multiple times in both. For sure it's a city with many skyscrapers, so the quality of the air is not great. But you can drive out of the city and have absolutely beautiful mountains and rice fields (such as Bogor). In the cit

    We have lived in Abu Dhabi for over four years and it is an amazing city! It is completely safe (for couples, solo women, etc.) and there is so much to do. The nightlife is plentiful and alcohol is easily available in licensed places (nearly all hotel bars and restaurants). The locals are friendly, and everyone speaks English. We absolutely love this city.

  • Chiang Rai

    Don't go thinking it's another Chiang Mai, because it doesn`t. Instead, Chiang Rai is much smaller and simple, not so much to see and do --forget about nighlife, just relax and get the work done. Food is amazing and you can have as much khao soi you can eat. Finding a condo with pool and gym is possible, but there are not much options available. Better book something in the middle of nature -- rent a motorbike.
