There are 72 Mild Cheap Places with Fast Internet like Chiang Mai, Ko Pha Ngan and Istanbul with an average cost of living of $999/month, internet speeds up to 80 Mbps and temperatures ranging from 16°C to 29°C60.338°F to 84.854°F.
Chiang Mai used to be N.1 for the digital nomad life.
It is still great and you can find really cheap apartments (300-400$) 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.

This island is a total gem. It has everything one desires in a paradise island! There is a huge higher consciousness/yoga/meditation/vegetarian/vegan community plus epic full moon and half moon parties, omg totally worth checking out! And the internet connectivity and speed on the island is good too. I've had no problem doing work from my laptop as a Digital Marketing Specialist either.

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!

After having lived here for two months, I've got to say that this must be one of the worst places in Asia. The only reason I am still here is because I'm stuck due to the covid-19 situation. There is nothing to do here, except going for a walk at the beach. No events, no social life, no activities. Mind you, this has nothing to do with the current situation, it was the same before things got shut down because of the virus.
The locals don't really like foreigners and you can feel that often, eve

Been living here in Buenos Aires for almost three years. Right now, it's (relatively) cheap. I mean, it isn't for the people who currently lives here but it's if you're a foreign, as the inflation keeps going on the peso isn't that worthy now. But, as I'm saying, if you come with dollars is going to make a huge difference.
(3 years ago: 20 pesos= 1 USD.
June 2020: 95 pesos= 1 USD. and if you're selling dollars in the informal market they will pay you $124. and with that you can buy two small

One of the most horrendous cities I've ever been to. Too much traffic, ugly architecture and even the food is very much hit and miss. Oh and housing is not that cheap. People can range from very friendly to very much not caring but on average, they're neither unfriendly nor easy to connect with, even if you speak good Spanish. More than anything, from someone used to the lively vibe in Colombia or Mexico, the place is as lively as a cemetery. No music, not even a peep at night... There's a reaso

Oaxaca is a city of arts, in its style, vibe and people it attracts. It has a wonderfully peaceful and relaxed atmosphere. I was here for a few months and really enjoyed it. I am more a business type of guy but if I'd be more relaxed I could image spending a few years here.

Bengaluru, January 4-9, and 13-13, 2020. Had a good time in Bengaluru ( formerly Bangalore). At first I stayed at the Parijatha Gateway Hotel, Near Soap Factory Metro, which was ideal for my purposes. Transit & shopping was nearby, and there was a mall and good food. The Metro in BLR is VERY modern and smooth- be prepared to be patted down (women and men separately) to get into the station, and you can but a metrocard at the ticket window. In Bangalore the internet is VERY fast (it is India

I lived in Hanoi for 3 full months and I really loved it.
Hanoi has a big foreigner district called 'Tay Ho'. If what you are looking for is somewhat foreigner(English) friendly, the spot is yours. However I preferred to stay in the Japanese area that was full of good sushi.
The charm of the city comes from the people. Vietnamese are aggressively kind and way too friendly.
I even rented a piano from a local shop, placed it at home and played it. Took private Muythai lesson from a local gym

I stayed in Hoi An much longer than I planned (10 days) because it was so pleasant. Yes, tourists everywhere. But my hotel was gorgeous and cheap and the wifi was plenty fast for work. When not working I biked out to the beach or through the paddies or into town (too crowded for a bike most times but functional if needed) or just around the countryside. Had some of my friendliest encounters here and as a single woman, always felt safe - night or day.

One of the best places in Brazil. Beaches, hiking trails, connection with other Brazilian cities by air and the flights are not that expensive. I stayed there in April-June. No tourists, prices go down, everything is calm. Definitely it's the best in shoulder season (March-April or October-November). It can be noisy and pricey in the summer. People very friendly like everywhere in Brazil. I rented a studio room for 350$ in a nice quiet neighbourhood in 2019.

Generally favorable on Antalya, but not perfect. The weather was excellent (~26 C almost every day) and the nature of the city is absolutely stunning. The mountains on the west side of the city seem to just explode out of the ocean and it's special to see. That said, the built environment is pretty uninspiring. The center of the city is full of interesting restaurants and shops, but outside of the old town it's not very exciting to look at. My primary complaint, however, is on public transit. It

- People are generally friendly
- Not too many scams like BKK
- Scams are low here because the city doesn't have the same attractions like BKK
- Never ran in to a Digital Nomad here like Chiang Mai
- English level is very low
- If they can speak a little bit of English the people are shy to use it
- Languages that you can use to get by are Thai, Cambodian and Lao
- Hospitals have long line ups throughout the day.
- Locals go in the morning to take a number, when their t

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.

Merida is a great place to work from with lots of people and many whom speak English, in fact I've been back i liked it so much. Rentals are very affordable, some of the cheapest in Mexico, but of course the cheaper it is the area isn't the best. There is much to do here, from heading to the Gulf of Mexico about an hour away, to visiting the ruins. Many, many places to eat and cuisines from around the world and for those who miss shopping at Costco no need to fear one is close by. Drive to P

Queretaro is a great under the radar city. For those that want a quieter lifestyle with superb weather year round and a US friendly time zone, this place is hard to beat for the price. One of the largest middle classes in Latin America allows it to have a very high quality of life. Some of the biggest pros are, low crime (lowest I've experienced in Latin America and safer than my hometown in the US), cleanest city in Latin America that I have ever been to, incredibly well preserved colonial down
