Has anybody worked from Ulaanbaatar?


in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia by @replay | 6yr  | 15 comments

I have been travelling and working from quite a few of the common places in Europe, Asia, Africa and South America over the past two years and Iโ€™m looking for areas that are a little more off the common path of DNs.

Two years ago I was supposed to go to Mongolia for some trip, I already had my visa ready, but then I ended up not going because of some other incident. Since then Mongolia is a place that I really wanted to go to, and basically do some of the things Iโ€™ve planned to do two years ago:).

I donโ€™t care much about the pollution in the city or (some people say) high crime rate, but Iโ€™m quite worried about the quality of the internet connections there. The speed of the connection is not that important for me, but the reliability is, so I would be very interested in hearing experiences of people who have tried to work from there.

Has anybody here tried working from Ulaanbaatar before?

@dpt Thanks for the tips - Iโ€™ve only been on the road for a month and am heading to UB in the next week and was wondering how I was going to get on with internet access as I have a weekโ€™s worth of freelance work to knock out before I go bicycle touring.

When you recommend working from hotel lobbies, are you actually staying there at the time, or just โ€˜campingโ€™ to get some quiet space for coding/writing and Skyping?

And do you find that you just canโ€™t get enough quiet space in hostels?

Thanks,
Dan

I meant โ€œcampingโ€ at the hotel. Obviously you should look somewhat presentable, but they wonโ€™t have any problems with you sitting there. Some hotels have lobby areas that function like cafรฉs.

You can peacefully sit in the Blue Sky, Ramada, UB Hotel, and do you work.

The new Shangri-La Hotel comes highly recommended. Beautiful atmosphere, very super fast and reliable internet, very polite & English-speaking staff, tea there is cheaper than in most cafรฉs (4000 MNT) and often while youโ€™re sitting there they will have someone come and play live music on the piano or violin.

For hostels, I donโ€™t know. Theyโ€™re absolutely not my thing and I try to stay far away from them.

Some cafรฉs to get work done:

  • Cafรฉ Camino (!!!)
  • some Tomโ€™nโ€™Toms branches (Grand Plaza is very good, the one in the Twin Towers gets very full around lunchtime, but if you get the seat by the big window can be very pleasant)
  • The Green Zone (next to the Zanabazar Museum)
  • the Caffee Bene branch opposite the Russian Embassy
  • Cafรฉ Felice (by the circus)
  • Cafรฉ 9 (in Baga Toiruu)
  • Buigus (in Central Tower)
  • maybe Cafรฉ Nayra, but itโ€™s not as good as it used to be

Cafรฉ Amsterdam has a lot of PR, but absolutely unsuitable for work (and, if you ask me, there are much better places for just relaxing).

The internet speed and cafรฉ density has gotten a lot better recently, so Iโ€™m sure you can easily get your work done. If you stay around Seoul Street or Baga Toiruu there are lots of options. When in doubt, just go to Cafรฉ Camino (though, theyโ€™re closed on Sundays) or to the Shangri-La.

I worked from Mongolia for 8 - 9 months. Two of those where in the summer of 2012, the rest Q2/Q3 2014.

Stuff in Mongolia is changing FAST. Faster than in other developing countries Iโ€™EV been to. In 2012 I usually went to hotel lobbies to do skypecalls, in 2014 it was possible from pretty much anywhere.

I canโ€™t give you exact numbers as Iโ€™m not there right now, but usually the issue is not speed but reliability. The thing about UB is that the city is totally over capacity and utilities break down once or twice a week.

Iโ€™m not a big mobile internet user, but from what I know that stuff works pretty well in Mongolia. Iโ€™ve been pretty impressed with the phone service quality & availability in Mongolia. You even have network in some very remote places. If you got internet on your phone you could probably rely on it and itโ€™d probably be at a decent price too.

Bonus tip: Mongolia has these international call cards that you can use to call abroad for ~2โ‚ฌ/hour. Thatโ€™s also a possible skype alternative for when the internet breaks down.

Now apart from the internet, there are a bunch of really nice cafรฉs in Ulaanbaatar. Try Cermaics, Narya, Coffee Bean, Azumio, Buigus, Cafรฉ 9, the lobby of the Blue Sky or Ramada Hotel, etc. (Cafรฉ Amsterdam is not was it once was, full of tourists now and not workable anymore).

Apart from that, Mongolia is a really interesting place thatโ€™s definitely worth going. Give me a shout when you get there, Iโ€™ll be there again this summer.

And donโ€™t worry about air pollution, thatโ€™s just a problem in winter.

@replay | 6yr

@dpt Thanks for this really great answer and Iโ€™m really looking forward to go there.

Regarding the cafes youโ€™ve mentioned, do you maybe know if any of them are open 24h? I have some weird working times because Iโ€™m working with a team of mostly Americans while being in Asia. Otherwise I guess Iโ€™ll just need to get an Airbnb that has a good connection at home, Iโ€™ve already seen some nice looking ones in UB.

Iโ€™m now thinking Iโ€™ll probably go to UB for a month in September, when the avg temperature isnโ€™t sub zero just yet. Although Iโ€™m fine with a little cold, doesnโ€™t bother me much, as long as it isnโ€™t the Mongolian winter -40C:).

Are you gonna be there in Sept?

All the cafรฉs I mentioned close between 20:00 and 22:00. As far as I know, the only thing thatโ€™s open during the night time are some fastfood restaurants, but those are useless for work.

You can work very well from hotel lobbies during the night time. Iโ€™m not sure about the Blue Sky (though daytime is no problem there), but the Ramada and the UB Hotel have very nice lobbies, very good internet connections, and the night staff usually doesnโ€™t mind (and if they do, just tell them you have a very important skype with your boss in America or something like that, will usually suffice).

September is a very nice month to visit Mongolia. The sky is blue (as always) and the sun is still very warming, but you usually donโ€™t have the strong winds that are common in spring. Expect either around 20ยฐC autumn weather like in Europe or a certain kind of crisp coldness that is extremely refreshing and uplifting (Iโ€™m from Europe and hate the cold there, but it isnโ€™t as โ€˜creepingโ€™ in Mongolia). Towards the middle/end of the month it can start to snow.

I might still be there in early September, donโ€™t know yet. Just update the thread again when you get there. And also feel free to keep asking if you have any questions.

@Mauro,

I spent a month in Mongolia as part of my RTW Train journey, working from UB was certainly possible although certainly not the most sexiest of places to be remote. The city itself is nice enough for a short stay but apart from a few coffee shops & restaurants itโ€™s not exactly a great hive of digital nomads.

That said it is a great jump of for some of the most amazing journeys iโ€™ve ever taken. But youโ€™ll want to be prepared to down tools for at least a week to enjoy them to the fullest and take into account that there is barely any cell reception once you are really off the beaten path let alone consistant WiFi.

I travelled South to the Gobi on a 10 day road trip + 3 others with Congor tours It was very rough terrain for most of the journey and leaving my laptop and HHDโ€™s in storage at UB was a good descision.

Out in the desert the local people I met were really humbleing and very kind. In UB the younger people we met weโ€™re super friendly and want to help travelers. I met lots of others on the road but most were just passing through from the Trans-Mongolian Train route.

If you can Iโ€™d take the train to reach Mongoila, a truely amazing experience. If you take the Train east-west you can get a data sim which works pretty well for most of the Russian stage of the trip on the train. I worked for 10 days like this with no issues, just lower your expectations for speed!

Happy to help if you need more info.

Best of luck!

@mrbromley

Thanks a lot for the detailed info. Iโ€™m glad you had such a great experience in Mongolia.

My requirements regarding coffee shops/coworking spaces are really not high, usually Iโ€™m fine if Iโ€™m able to find a stable internet connection and get some kind of caffeine, even a bunch of redbulls will do the job. And it seems in UB this should all be possible. Iโ€™m afraid I wonโ€™t have that much free time to take the train, but my plan is to use UB as my base from Mo-Fr (Iโ€™m still quite bound to a schedule) and then go experience the surroundings of the city on the weekends.

You havenโ€™t maybe seen a place to rent motorcycles? I would love to rent some enduro bike to get out of the city on the weekends. Iโ€™ve done that about 3 years ago in inner Mongolia and I loved it there.

Anybody bring their car to Mexico instead of flying?


in Mexico by @digitaldiva | 4mo 4 months ago | 1 comment

Iโ€™m curious whether anyone drove to Mexico instead of flying and used their car down there. Iโ€™ve heard bad stories of people driving down there but not sure I believe them. How safe is it to drive through rural areas, and to park in cities? It would be cool to have the car to explore while there.

Anybody recommend US health insurance with global coverage?


by @tylertringas | 2yr 1 year ago | 18 comments

Any US nomads found health insurance with global coverage? My current approach has been to have US health insurance, essentially a waste of money but if I ever got very sick I could go home and have coverage. My actual healthcare is a combination of travel insurance (havenโ€™t really used it much though) and paying cash in cheap places like SE Asia and Latin America. The cobbled together approach is neither simple nor very cost-effective. Love to find a product with global coverage that also satisfies Obamacare requirements. Any leads?

Anybody with a software consultancy having issues finding clients while travelling?


by @raz | 3yr 2 years ago | 4 comments

I recently started running a software consultancy in the UK that specialises in MVP development and onboarding/marketing strategies. I found it relatively easy to get leads by attending networking events (quite a lot here in Edinburgh).

I plan to start travelling soon, though. Has anybody tried to travel while running a software consultancy? Iโ€™m really curious to find out how you handled finding new clients while doing that. Letโ€™s say that if I go networking somewhere in Asia I wonโ€™t find clients willing to spend much on a project (and canโ€™t just pay my employees less because I canโ€™t find good paying projects).

Is anybody a Digital Nomad in the UK and not a resident?


by @creative_nomad_ | 3yr 2 years ago | 6 comments

The situation is that my BF is a UK citizen and I am not. We are traveling around SEA and planning to stop in the UK for 6 months to rekindle funds. Granted, the UK is not the cheapest place to rekindle funds, however, he can work and get a good job there.

I have already done my working visa in the UK so I canโ€™t legally work there again. Iโ€™m a graphic designer and web designer and have decided that I will try and get freelance work to support myself whilst Iโ€™m over there.

My question is more related to tax and visas. I am an Australia citizen so I can get a 3 month tourist visa. Iโ€™m just a little worried about how strict they are over there on visas and questioning finance etc

Hey everyone,

Has anyone visited Sihanoukville recently? I would like to visit and give it a try for working but I am a little unsure about the following:

  • Internet reliability (power cuts and speed)
  • 4G connection as backup
  • specific areas to live

In anyone can offer any info, suggestions on specific areas or recommended accommodation that would be great. I visited around 8 years ago so I am assuming the place has changed quite a bit since then.

Has anybody encountered a travel gear mfr that intentionally makes crappy-looking gear?


by @octavient | 4yr 3 years ago | 8 comments

Has anybody ever encountered a travel gear manufacturer that makes gear that is solid and durable, but that is intentionally designed to look old and crappy? For international travel, I want good, durable gear, but Iโ€™m uncomfortable walking around with slick, brand-new-looking, expensive-looking gear (especially with my family in tow). Iโ€™m happy to snatch up any good used gear (reduce, reuse, recycle) that weโ€™re lucky enough to encounter, but selection is limited, and durability is often compromised. Seems like thereโ€™d be a decent market for some durable but ragged-looking travel gear. What i have in mind is luggage, backpacks, laptop cases, smartphone cases, camera bags, infant/toddler carriers, etc. Iโ€™m sensitive to the preppy fad of clueless, well-off westerners dressing up like the poor in naive but trendy mockery, but thatโ€™s not what Iโ€™m after, here. I just want good gear that doesnโ€™t put a target on my back as we traipse around various parts of the world. Anybody have any thoughts on thisโ€ฆ?

Anybody around Europe over the next few months?


by @paulrose | 4yr 3 years ago | 9 comments

Hi All

Soโ€ฆ a few months ago when I was in Asia, for some reason I decided that it was gonna be too hot over the summer months and I wanted to mix it up with a few months touring Europe. So I had the idea to buy and RV and drive round for a few months.

Meet Teagan :slight_smile:

Itโ€™s taken a few months going through the process of getting my license to drive the RV, because itโ€™s so large it wasnโ€™t covered on my standard driving license. Add to that, I had some solar panels fitted for unlimited power, and a massive satellite dish for internet wherever I go.

Iโ€™ve now got my ferry booked out of the UK for September 11th and at the moment have no plans past the first few weeks.

Has anyone on here done anything similar before? Any places recommended, or anyone around Europe over the next few months?

Iโ€™m doing about 3 months worth before heading to Vegas for NYE and around the states for a few months after that before back to Asia for a bit.

Has anybody with a Hong Kong company been through an Offshore Profits claim?

 

in Hong Kong by @prof | 4yr 3 years ago | 23 comments

Iโ€™ve just hit the 18-month mark of business in Hong Kong ready to submit by first Profit Tax Return. I also have the option of filing an Offshore Profits claim.

The Offshore Profits claim itself seems to be a convoluted, long drawn-out process with significant costs to bare in working with a certified CPA to answer Inland Revenue Department questioning.

Iโ€™d love it if somebody who has been through this already were able to answer the following questions:

  • How long did it take for the claim to be accepted or denied?
  • What was the end result?
  • How much did the IRD dig into each transaction?
  • How much did you pay your agent to deal with the offshore claim?

Any insights are much appreciated! :slightly_smiling:

Anybody knows of good online banks for Europeans?


by @kfk | 4yr 4 years ago | 6 comments

Ok, I was just writing a PM here on banks and the question popped in my head. I am not a digital nomad, but I am very close to that way of living, in the sense that I donโ€™t want to commit to any specific physical location, long term investment (maybe only private pension), long term in general actually.

Now, I use Deutsche Bank. Nothing against them, but:

  • I hate to have an account manager that calls me telling me I should invest my money
  • The online banking is good but not great
  • Services are ok, but I donโ€™t use most of them and the one I would like (online everything please) are not there

So, I was wondering if any of you is happy with any of the digital banks out there? Criteria for a good online bank:

  • minimal paperwork
  • no account manager
  • 90% async communication (I call them, they call me only if the house is on fire)
  • they donโ€™t request a physical address and they DO NOT SEND PAPER STUFF to my mailbox

Anything like this?

Anybody living (or that used to live) in Aruba?


in Aruba by @erikahlehmann | 5yr 4 years ago | 8 comments

Hi there!

Iโ€™m doing my research on nice places in SA/CA. Iโ€™ve been living in Argentina for the past 4 years and Iโ€™ve only been at the beach for 2 weeks (in Rio) almost 2 years ago. I know, itโ€™s sad :confused:

I want my next home to be close to the beach, and Iโ€™ve been hearing great things about Aruba. Iโ€™m not planning on staying another 4 years at the new location, but at least a few months.

Has anyone lived and worked from there? Do they have fast and reliable internet? Is it affordable?

If not Aruba, which other places would you recommend to spend a few months close to the beach that are affordable and with high speed Wi-Fi?

Iโ€™m thinking about staying in SA/CA because of the time zones. I work for an American company, so I think Iโ€™d rather stay in a time zone thatโ€™s not to far away from theirs.

Some other places that have crossed my mind are Guatemala City or Antigua, Quito, Costa Rica (although Iโ€™ve heard itโ€™s expensive)โ€ฆ

I still have a few months to think about it while I finish some paperwork in Buenos Aires, but Iโ€™d like to leave around August/September.

I work at night so I have free time during the day. Every day, I would change hotels. This lets me experience a different part of town every day. At around 1pm, I would check out, then load up the hotels.com app and find the next 3-Star hotel under $40. Then Iโ€™d grab an Uber and make my way to the new hotel. And then repeat the next day until Iโ€™ve lived in every 3-Star hotel within my budget in the city. Does anybody else do this?

by @creative_nomad_ | 5yr 5 years ago | 2 comments

Hi All,

I am a freelance graphic designer. My biggest hassle with traveling is carrying around my Mac. I always carry a tablet (for reading) and a computer for work. The Surface Pro combines these and has the power to run my Adobe design programs. The extra space it would enable would be great.

There are a few things that worry me. The small screen, getting use to Windows and not Mac, the large price tag and just knowing if it will really be powerful enough to run my Adobe programs.

Has anyone had experience using the Surface pro? Could you recommend anything that might be better.

Any advice would be appreciated
