The most ideal place to live in Hanoi is anywhere nearby Ho Tay (West Lake) especially on Xuan Dieu, Dang Thai Mai, and To Ngoc Van streets. You will find a large community of expats living there, the place is like an island right inside the centre of city, the air is perfect, the traffic is not overloaded like other places, there are a lot of restaurants, bars, cafes, hotels surrounded. ClickSpace is the only co-working space in Hanoi and itโ€™s located on To Ngoc Van street, monthly membership costs only $50. That being said, itโ€™s the most expensive area to live in Hanoi, however you may still find a good deal by checking on the sites, contact them and negotiate, I used to rent a house there for only $500/month with 4 bed rooms + a kitchen + a living room 2 years ago when I was in Hanoi and shared it with 3 UK lads I met in a bar.

Once you have arrived at the airport, walk out the terminal and you will see a lot of buses and mini-buses waiting, follow the people and get into a bus, it will take you to the city centre for only $2, avoid taxies as it will cost you a lot or may scam you. The bus will drop you at Quang Trung street, buy a map and walk to Ta Hien street, or get a motorbike taxi or taxi (another $2). (Motorbike taxies are the men who will approach you right at the time you walk down the bus, and they are everywhere at any street conner, always ask and negotiate for a good price before you go with any of them).

In Ta Hien street you will see a lot of shops where you can rent a motorbike for cheap, Iโ€™d recommend you to get one. On the same street or the neighbourhood, look for a hotel or hostel room, itโ€™s cheap and readily available there, to stay temporarily while you look for an accommodation, and enjoy the nightlife of the busiest street in town.

Best way is to rent a motorbike. Thereโ€™s buses but no subway and taxi are cheap. You can also hired someone on motorbike for half the price of a taxi on almost all street corner.

I lived in Hanoi for 4 months in Hai Ba Trung district and it was very nice. Mostly local people, not too much tourist, lot of restaurants, a market and a big park. Not too far from the center and Hoร n Kiแบฟm Lake. A good way to find accommodation is on some facebook groups like Hanoi Comrades https://www.facebook.com/groups/581773388574145/. Thereโ€™s a lot of people who post ads for apartment or room to rent at all kind of price.

How do you plan your budget with different currencies?


by @leonagano | 8mo 7 months ago | 8 comments

Hey travellers, how are you doing?

Do you have problems to plan your trip choosing any currency they want? For example, Iโ€™m going to the UK but would like to plan my trip (How much will I spend in housing/food/having fun/attending attractions?) in US Dollar or Euro or any other money.
How do you guys do it easily?

What should I budget for a stay in *insert place here*?


by @gigigriffis | 3yr 3 years ago | 6 comments

Hey all!

Iโ€™ve been seeing a lot of budgeting questions floating around lately (not just here, but other nomad forums), so I thought it might be useful to start a thread where anyone who is sharing their nomadic budgets can drop a link (or the budget itself).

I know Betsy and Warren of Married with Luggage share theirs here: http://www.rtwexpenses.com/

My friend Ali isnโ€™t full-time on the road, but she shares real budgets for her trips: http://www.aliadventures.com/category/real-travel-budgets/

Anyone else out there sharing budgets for nomadic life? Please share your links below!

Any recommendation on accommodations in Cape Town?


in Cape Town, South Africa by @danielletom | 3yr 3 years ago | 3 comments

Hey guys,

Iโ€™m looking at heading to Cape Town in February/March. I am looking for a long term accomodation for about three months. I checked out GumTree and StayinCapeTown, but I was wondering if you had any more reccomendations on where to look! Airbnb is quite expensive and sparse.

Also, I would love to know your favourite areas in the city and hear about your experiences :slight_smile:

Thanks !

How to find short term accommodation in Chiang Mai?


in Chiang Mai, Thailand by @kathrynoh | 4yr 3 years ago | 12 comments

Iโ€™m planning on 6 weeks in Chiang Mai soon and most of the stuff Iโ€™ve read about finding a place there says the best thing to do is to look in person. Considering the short time Iโ€™m there, I would prefer to prebook to say a couple of days of apartment hunting.

I was wondering about the options for short(ish) term accommodation and if pre-booking is worthwhile or if Iโ€™ll just get fobbed off with the worst room/apartment available.

Iโ€™m just looking for something basic - so long as it has air conditioning. Having a work space would be a definite advantage as would closeness to coffee. Other than that, things like a pool, gym, kitchen arenโ€™t that important to me.

Blog recommendations for mid-budget nomads?


by @kathrynoh | 4yr 4 years ago | 7 comments

Pretty much what the title says, Iโ€™ve been trying to find a few good blogs to follow by nomads in the mid-budget range. There seems to be a ton in the budget/backpacker range, trying to do everything as cheaply as possible or, in the mid-budget range but are short-term travellers.

There does seem to be a lack of blogs in the mid-budget, long term travel area that arenโ€™t run by professional bloggers & full of sponsored posts. Am I looking in the wrong places or is it just that people in this niche are too busy making a living doing other work donโ€™t bother blogging?

I follow Making It Anywhere, which is good but not updated much. Any other recommendations?

Price for basic accommodation in Santa Teresa, Costa Rica?


in Santa Teresa, Costa Rica by @niklasmodess | 4yr 4 years ago | 0 comments

Hi!
Me and my girlfriend are planning on staying 1-3 months in Santa Teresa, starting in May. Does anybody know how much we can expect to pay in rent, and if there are any good places online to look for apartments? Or is it better to look for a place once weโ€™re there? So far weโ€™ve mostly found more upscale options online but we just need a place that is safe, clean and that has a kitchen. A small studio would be fine.
Any help with this would be appreciated!

How to find accommodation in Turkey?


in Turkey by @pilat | 5yr 4 years ago | 8 comments

โ€ฆ or in any modern town (with multi-storey appt buildings).

Hi, Iโ€™m going to Alanya, Turkey this October/November (then moving to Goa). My plan for Goa is the following: I rent something via Booking/AirBnB for just 2-3 days so that we could be rested from the road. During these days Iโ€™m going to shop around for longer and less expensive accommodation. In India, they say, the best way is to do it โ€œofflineโ€: just go to streets and look for โ€œRooms to letโ€ signs. Itโ€™s Ok, I believe, in rural area with 1-2 story houses, but how would one โ€œshop offlineโ€ in a modern town like Alanya? I mean, you wonโ€™t go into a multi-storey apartment buildings and knock at the doors, will you? Any advices?

Maybe, there are some boards that locals use to rent flats? I donโ€™t like prices on AirBnB, to be honestโ€ฆ Especially with current Rub-to-Euro conversion rate :confused:
Besides, our primary goal on this trip is to try living โ€œlike a nativeโ€; not interested in touristic attractions.

What's a good budgeting app for nomads?


by @stepunk | 5yr 4 years ago | 9 comments

Iโ€™m looking for a good budgeting and expenses tracking software to track my expenses and my income, I donโ€™t mind if itโ€™s free or paid, but I canโ€™t find any with all these characteristics which are fundamental for me. They always lack at least one or two.

  • multi-account (for me and my girlfriend)
  • multi-currency (of course)
  • sync between desktop and multiple mobile devices
  • geolocation for each transaction to better track expenses by country and city

What do you use?

What's your approach to finding medium term accommodation?

 

by @andygreenwood | 5yr 5 years ago | 24 comments

Hi everyone.

Whatโ€™s your approach/resources for finding medium term accommodation (Iโ€™m thinking 1 month-3 months as that tends to be the visa limit)?

Been building up my work this year whilst also being a traditional backpacker so moving far too quickly.

Next year is all about picking two or three locations and โ€œsettlingโ€ for a while.

How can I do a 6 month South America trip on a budget?


by @anon72215238 | 5yr 5 years ago | 8 comments

I am bored with SEA and apart from Burma and a possible trip to Cameron Highlands, I am ready to move on to South America while I avoid the Eastern European winter. From October until the end of April. The purpose of the trip is to see the parts of South America that are worth seeing to tick them off the list and potentially never need to visit South America again (last time i left due to budget constraints and wanting to get back to SEA).

In the 2012/2013 during the South American summer, over the period of about 9-10 weeks I went to Bogota, Medellin, Solento, Cali, Quito, Guayaquil, Lima, Cuzco, Lima. I feel like I have seen enough of North-Western part of South America and I would like to restart my trip in Lima and head south and then travel around the bottom of Sth Am to B.A then end the trip in Rio.

This should take around 6-7 months and the weather should be good to see Patagonia, right?

What is the best route for someone who doesnโ€™t like to hang around in places for more than 7 days (each place max.), if I want to stick to a budget of about $1000-$1200 per month? I am aware that buses are slow, long journeys but I am not in a rush for this tripโ€ฆ just avoiding the European winter and escaping the pointlessness of my time in SEA.

Would like tips for which places to go, avoid, internet speeds, problems, which bus company you used.

I do affiliate marketing so easy access to an internet connection is important, but internet speed does not matter too much.

Hi. We're Teleport, building software for startup people to discover and budget your next move. AUA!


by @sten | 5yr 5 years ago | 13 comments

Hi, I am Sten, co-founder & CEO of Teleport. We build software for startup people on the move. We have released Teleport for Startup Cities, Bay Area Teleport and Teleport Flock to date.

Moving ourselves and our families around the globe we have become all too familiar with the hassles this lifestyle brings. Figuring out where to stay, what to expect, where to pay taxes or which visa to get. Rinse and repeat.

We mapped out hundreds of relocation nuisances we could fix with software. Once these get solved millions of people like us could benefit. So there was no choice but to start this company.

Over the last decade most of our team were busy building Skype which turned out to be quite effective making the world smaller in the metaphorical sense. We believe we can now rearrange the human population physically as well.

Iโ€™m joined here with my co-founder @keskkyla and possibly other members of our 9-people-across-6-countries team โ€“ depending on what you guys want to know.
