I've been to HCM a few times and just stayed in the area around the Thai consulate. But this time I found an airbnb at Vinhomes Central Park, and the experience is completely different. This place is amazing!

Ho Chi Minh City is a big hot spot for digital nomads. Currently experiencing huge growth in the number of co-working spaces available. It has a slower pace of life compared to other cities. Ho Chi Minh City is well known for its coffee culture (many local cafรฉs), traditional architecture, and friendly locals. Prices for food and accommodation are low in comparison to other South East Asian locations. Added bonus: weekend getaways at the beach are just a bus ride away.

You get somewhat acclimated to the weather after a while (and yes, the right wool fabric is the most breathable one so ignore that previous reviewer). I\'ve stayed here on and off for about 4 years now. The expat crowd is great and there really is a lot of opportunity for collaboration. Many networking events every month and a vibrant startup community. The variety of food is some of the best in the world (although you will have to pay to get quality Western). Shopping is great. Nightlife could be better but should satisfy most people. The real downside is the traffic which has become basically as bad as Jakarta, although Bangkok has much better transporation (both skytrain and subway). Living expenses have risen lately so don\'t count on this being a budget trip unless you want to resort to street food. Internet speed generally has becoming really great. Fast 4G in all operators. If you stay in a new condo or hotel you will average at least 30Mbit โ€“ my current co work place runs at 600.

Loved by solo female travelers for its mellowness and safety. You can bicycle around town, do some work in the cute cafes and coworkings and meet other nomads easily.

The price rating bar is definitely wrong. Hong Kong is way more expensive than any other city I have been to, including London.

I just got back here in late 2018 and it\'s better than ever. People who say \"Chiang Mai is overrun by nomads\" are really mistaken. I hardly saw them. I did see lots of Chinese and some Korean tourists, but they were all quite nice and mostly around Nimman. There\'s also the few American vegan midlifer\'s in the Old City center, but that\'s about it. Chiang Mai is cool and breezy, there\'s now public bicycles literally everywhere that you can rent for 250 THB or $6 (per month!) with the MoBike app. The red buses (or Songthaew\'s) are now legit and don\'t rip tourists off anymore, so you can drive everywhere for 30 THB or $1. People are nice. It\'s still super safe, even late a night. The food is better than ever. And thanks to the nomad wave of 2014 in Chiang Mai, there\'s now lots of hip cafes that allow coworking too. It\'s a great city.
