If you were thinking in terms of broad nomad-friendly regions (South East Asia, Eastern Europe, Balkans, South America, Middle East, India, …), considering the high-seasons, monsoons, weather, etc. which regions do you recommend to be in which time of the year?

This is an algorithmic recommendation based on @salman's trips history to find places they haven't been to yet that other people with similar travels as them also went and liked.
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.⭐️ Score💵 Cost 📡 Internet 😀 Fun 👮 Safety 024Mbps×
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!⭐️ Score💵 Cost 📡 Internet 😀 Fun 👮 Safety 012Mbps×
Don't believe the prices on here for an apartment. 686 usd/month refers to an apartment in a high class condo, right in the city centre and seconds away from the BTS(train station). Just remember this, people working at supermarkets make 2 usd/per hour. If you want to live like a local, then you can save a lot of money. If you don't mind a 5-10 minute walk from the BTS, then you can easily get a one bedroom apartment for 300 USD per month, in a high class condo, plus with free golf cart ser⭐️ Score💵 Cost 📡 Internet 😀 Fun 👮 Safety 025Mbps×
I do love Mexico City, it's incredibly vibrant with friendly people. That said, I will warn against following advice from people who go for a few months and say, "it's safe because I never had an issue". This is Latin America and it is known to be dangerous for a reason, statistically, even Mexico City is very unsafe. The chance of something dangerous happening goes up the longer you stay, only you can decide if that's worth it.⭐️ Score💵 Cost 📡 Internet 😀 Fun 👮 Safety 019Mbps×
They say you get what you pay for. After having traveled the previous 4 months in India, Cambodia, VietNam, Myanmar and Thailand, Singapore was so easy! The subway system is a marvel, streets signs were easy to read, everyone speaks English (that just makes it easy for me as an English speaker) it is safe, clean, and parks are gorgeous. I was there as COVID 19 was breaking out fairly fast and that put a damper on my time but I was so happy to be there anyway and plan to go back.

Literally the worst traffic in North America, 6th worst in the world, grotesquely expensive, Horrible weather much of the year, Cold and distant people. Possibly the most Anti-American people In the world. Surging crime and homelessness since Orwellian government lockdown On a good note, decent waterfront in the summer and fall, if you dig around You can't find decent food though very expensive. Overall you're much better off in NYC or elsewhere. Trying to defect from here as asap.⭐️ Score💵 Cost 📡 Internet 😀 Fun 👮 Safety 032Mbps×
London is the best city in the world - you just can't do it on a budget. It's got an amazing tech scene but ALSO world class media, fashion, finance, art industries and many others. If you don't want to live in a tech / expat mono-culture then it's for you. It is a genuine melting pot with a huge range of nationalities and cultures living together (the US has a large number of nationalities but there seems to be hard segregations between them geographically, economically, culturally - so they⭐️ Score💵 Cost 📡 Internet 😀 Fun 👮 Safety 020Mbps×
Having spent a total of two weeks in London on two separate occasions and having lived in NYC for two years, both are among my favorite cities in the world. Londoners are quite internationally and ethnically diverse, and seemingly better educated and more intellectual than New Yorkers in aggregate. The city very clean with a stunning mix of modern and historic architecture, and arguably has Europe's best public transit in terms of signage, availability, cleanliness and general efficiency.
