FYI: Protests in Kuala Lumpur on 29 and 30 August 2015


in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia by @liztai | 5yr  | 0 comments

Hello everyone,
Not a question per se but just a note to those of you in Kl this month. There will be a huge protest called Bersih at the end of the month. You have the rare opportunity to see democracy in action. Still, do be careful as the police here are tear gas happy so be armed with water n salt if you are out and about the city on that day.

there may be road blocks and traffic jams too.

For more info

Malaysians are a friendly bunch so you will not get any problems from them.

The police, on the other handโ€ฆ

Foreigner owned Coworking business in Malaysia


in Malaysia by @newyam | 2yr 1 year ago | 0 comments

Heyo folks! The idea to open up an own coworking space in Malaysia has been on my mind for quite a while and I would like to reach out on foreigners being a business owner/co working space owner in Malaysia, there are a lot of questions that would follow up but most importantly is to reach out to someone with experience.

Ideally would be someone who runs a coworking space in Malaysia, second best would be to just come in touch with a foreign business owner in Malaysia.
Cheers
Yamin

Moving to Thailand for 6-9 months in August. Bangkok or somewhere else?


in Bangkok, Thailand by @andrea3018 | 3yr 3 years ago | 14 comments

Hello Nomads,
I would like to move in Thailand for 6-9 months starting from August.
Iโ€™ll definetely stay in Chiang Mai as base for most of the time but Iโ€™d like to do the first month (August) in Bangkok or somewhere else.
What place would you recommend to visit first?
Would Bangkok be a good place to be during August?
I was also checking at the east coast isles but I got a little frightened out by the moonsoon idea but still, it would be cool to go to beaches and have some sun during that month :slight_smile: .
Would the moonsoons or the rain really be a problem?
Iโ€™ll move to Chiang Mai from september anyway but I would just like to start somewhere else since I have to wait for my girlfriend to come during september.

Thank you in advance for your advices,
Sorry for the bad english,
Andrea

Do I need A/C in Vienna in August?

Iโ€™m coming to Vienna in August. However most appartments donโ€™t seem to have A/C โ€ฆ given that temperatures go over 30 degrees even now (June), is A/C really not needed during the night or do people there just have high heat tolerance?

Low Cost European Destination for August?


by @jcw | 4yr 3 years ago | 4 comments

Weโ€™re thinking of going nomadic for a month in August/early September with the kids in tow.

Ideally, weโ€™d like to hire a two bedroom place somewhere warm (or warmer than England) without breaking the bank. Also, easy travel from the south of England (Gatwick or Heathrow) would be good.

Near a beach would be good or a place with lots of outdoors stuff for young kids to do.

Either 4 weeks in one location or 2 weeks in 2 locations would be good.

Both of us parents work remotely so weโ€™d need reliable internet at the place of stay.

Coffee shops or a co-working space would be a bonus.

Any suggestions? Thanks!

Does anybody have experience with setting up an offshore company and bank account in Labuan (Malaysia)


in Malaysia by @nomads_and_drifters | 4yr 4 years ago | 4 comments

Hi there,
We are a husband and wife who travel a lot and have a small company set up in Fiji. We offer services to clients all over the world, but the Fijian banking system isnโ€™t very accommodating for a digital based business with a lot of overseas expenses.

To make our life easier we are planning to set up an offshore company and bank account in Labuan.
We have a Fijian, Belgium and Uk passport but have residency in Fiji.

Does anybody have experience with a situation like this? and any advice how to go about setting up an offshore company and bank account ideally in Labuan (or Singapore)?

What are the best places to meet other web entrepreneurs in Kuala Lumpur and Penang?


in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia by @yliasm | 4yr 4 years ago | 0 comments

Hi everyone,
Iโ€™ll be in Malaysia from mid-July onwards and would love to meet other web entrepreneurs. Iโ€™ll be roaming in the country for a month but will probably stay a bit in KL and Penang. According to your experience, what are the best places to meet web entrepreneurs in these two cities?
Iโ€™m particularly looking for web entrepreneurs but if you have suggestions to meet any other entrepreneurs, Iโ€™ll be glad to read it :slight_smile:
Thanks for all your answers,
Cheers!

Penang or Kuala Lumpur for three months?


in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia by @lena | 4yr 4 years ago | 8 comments

Hi!
We are currently planing to go to Malaysia for three months, but are unsure whether Penang or KL is the best fit for us.

Generally, we donโ€™t like big cities (e.g. Bangkok) too much, but we need to get some work done and need good wifi and a place that is easy to settle into. A modern, comfortable and private apartment for less than ยฑ2.500 MR is a requirement. Easy access to nature and good food (vegetarian) is more important than shopping or an active nightlife.

Any tips? Thanks for any help!

Kuala Lumpur Nomads?


in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia by @lucinda | 5yr 4 years ago | 3 comments

Do yโ€™all exist?

Iโ€™m back in Kuala Lumpur and Iโ€™m looking for other nomads to hang with :slight_smile: perhaps arrange some group activities/meet ups. It seems like there are very few of us around compared to other SEA cities.

What are the best/non-tourist places in Malaysia in Jan?


in Malaysia by @kathrynoh | 5yr 4 years ago | 2 comments

Iโ€™m planning on travelling from Australia to the UK in Jan. I booked flights with a stopover in Malaysia for 2 weeks planning on going to Penang for that but wasnโ€™t thinking that itโ€™ll be peak tourist season!

Since I hate being in busy places, I am now reconsidering and wondered if there was anywhere with decent working spaces/cafes/accommodation that wonโ€™t be too overcrowded. The alternative is to just hang out in KL. Iโ€™ve been there a few times and wanted to try somewhere new but maybe holing up and having a work โ€œbootcampโ€ for the two weeks might be a better idea :slight_smile:

How is Kuala Lumpur as a digital nomad base?

 

in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia by @agirlwhotravels | 5yr 4 years ago | 29 comments

Hi everyone! Iโ€™m considering moving to Kuala Lumpur for about a year or so (mainly because itโ€™s a great getaway to SE Asia islands). I was wondering whatโ€™s it like as a travel base? It would be great to hear the opinions of those of you who lived there! Thanks so much in advance!

What's a good place in Malaysia near the beach?


in Malaysia by @bobz_zg | 5yr 4 years ago | 7 comments

Anyone can suggest some place in Malaysia where could I rent some affordable place ( < 30$ US/d) and be near the beach. What I need is:

  • decent room with daily cleaning
  • 4G reception
  • some night life around, like where there are few bars to hang out when my head is

I came from Phuket week ago to KL, was 100m from the beach for 1 month.
O what a depression when I came to a shitty hotel in KL, I wanted to turn around and go back to Thailand. O, my Buddha!

Coming from a visa exempt EU country can I extend my stay in Thailand for 30 days or not?


in Thailand by @alexlielacher | 5yr 5 years ago | 3 comments

I have just been reading up on the new Thai visa situation and I am very confused as to whether I can extend my โ€˜visa exempt 30 days stay" by another 30 days at a local immigration office whilst already in Thailand or not? According to the Austrian Foreign ministry website I cannot but then several recently updated travel blogs say you can? And visa runs seem to be more or less out of the question now since the authorities are crackinโ€™ down on that since the Bangkok attacks?

Any EU Europeans had any recent experience with that? Just want to make sure I can avoid trouble.

Does the 30 days extension on the Visa Exemption count against the 90 days in six months rule in Thailand?


in Thailand by @gui | 5yr 5 years ago | 1 comment

My fiancรฉe(who is British) is on her second 30 days visa exemption in Thailand. Weโ€™re considering getting the visa exemption extension for 30 days and staying longer.

Our only worry is: Does this mean we would hit 90 days in total? We need to return in March to fly home from Bangkok. We are worried weโ€™d be refused entry in March as they might count the visa exemption extension against us.

Any advice is appreciated!

Cheers

What's the Thailand visa situation for digital nomads in 2015?


in Thailand by @opt | 5yr 5 years ago | 8 comments

This is a FAQ, a โ€œlightning rodโ€ of sorts, and there are whole sites dedicated to discussion about the topic, but what is the real Thai visa situation in 2015 for nomads?

Iโ€™ve spent hours reading about this, but with all the tangents and pointless debate in various forums, itโ€™s difficult to get straight facts and answers (to the extent possible, understanding that this can be a gray area).

One one hand there are people talking about staying 10+ years, but then thereโ€™s advice from, for example, @CoffeeShopCEO, saying: โ€œThai consulates are also beginning to reject people who have back to back visas in their passports, so after a year or so, go do some travelling.โ€

It seems confusing to talk on one hand (as so many video series and similar money-making ventures do) about all the great deals on apartments and long-term stays, and on the other about taking all your stuff with you on border runs, because you may not be coming back.

I imagine the best answer is โ€œYMMV,โ€ but it seems like a precarious way to live while trying to build a business: stretching the truthโ€“or outright lyingโ€“about reasons for travel, hoping you donโ€™t get the wrong government representative on the wrong day, trying to get the foreign income exemption without paying taxes in the destination country, etc.

From the glut of videos by Chiang Mai-based foreigners alone, it would seem that many are living (and selling) this lifestyle successfully, but it isnโ€™t quite as simple as portrayed, no?

Can I use my dual citizenship to enter Thailand with a 30-day visa and use the 3x 60 day visa on my other passport?


in Thailand by @sarab | 5yr 5 years ago | 9 comments

Hi everyone,
Iโ€™m looking for some advice from people who are dual citizens. I hold dual Italian and British citizenship and I want to visit Thailand later this year. I was planning to get a 3 x 60 visa on my Brit passport, but it looks like I might need to travel out of Thailand a month after first arriving there. I donโ€™t really want to burn one of my 60 day entries like that so I thought, what if I first enter with my Italian passport and just get the normal 30 day visa on arrival? Then when i return I can use my first 60 day on the Brit passport.
does any one have experience of this and is it doable/OK?

Many thanks!
Sara

Hi there,

Iโ€™ve been asked by a company to travel and work abroad to experience the digital nomad lifestyle and to write about it. Actually to do research about it. So Iโ€™ll be in KL from August 21 to August 25. If anyone is up for a drink: Iโ€™d love to meet you and hear your story. Suggestions for workspaces are welcome too. Staying near the Petronas towers.

Cheers from the Netherlands!

How is the safety in Bangkok after the bomb attack of August 2015?


in Bangkok, Thailand by @hydrofog | 5yr 5 years ago | 2 comments

Hey everyone, I havenโ€™t actually set out into the digital nomad lifestyle yet, but plan to within this year. Bangkok is (was) a place that I was looking into very deeply as my first location to go.

But today a bomb went off near the centre of the city:

This scares me massively, and worries me to ever travel thereโ€ฆ after this event would you still recommend going to Bangkok?

I hope everyone who is in Bangkok that is apart of this forum is okay, Iโ€™m pretty sure I read that 6 foreigners died in the blastโ€ฆ RIP to all the souls who were lost.
