Where can you do cheap laundry in Shanghai?


in Shanghai, China by @levelsio | 4yr  | 6 comments

My hotel is charging like 500RMB ($7USD) for a t-shirt, haha. So I need to find a cheap laundry place a la Thailand, here in Shanghai. Iโ€™m in the Jingโ€™an area. Anyone knows?

Try Laundrytown. They offer free pickup and delivery. I think the rate for โ€œwash & foldโ€ is 25RMB per kg. They operate in several cities in Asia including Shanghai, Beijing, Bangkok, Tokyo, Singapore and KL.

Ah you may find that a bit tough at Jingโ€™an hotel Iโ€™m afraid, itโ€™s an upmarket part of town and as youโ€™ve definitely noticed Shanghaiโ€™s a different world than Thailand.

There are lots of hole in the wall dry cleaners scattered around the place who should do you a load of laundry for around 50 yuan or less. Ask a local to help you find a ๆด—่กฃๆœๅบ— xว yฤซfรบ diร n literally โ€˜clothes wash shopโ€™ not sure if thatโ€™s the perfect Chinese but itโ€™ll work.

Otherwise the classic travelerโ€™s trick of washing 'em in the sink then leaving them to dry.

Good luck, and welcome to the the Hai!

Are restaurants, cafes and malls working in Mexico City taking into account COVID situation?

 

in Mexico by @thateverdmitriy | 12h 12 hours ago | 1 comment

I am planning to travel to Mexico City next weekend and stay for 7-10 days there. I wonder if cafes, stores and other places like these work? And if cafes work, do they work as usual or only for take away&delivery? Will be very thankful if someone can help here.

Which EU country doesn't charge social security for freelancers


in Luxembourg by @colin_o_keeffe | 2d 1 day ago | 1 comment

As far as I'm aware Germany, Luxembourg, Belgium charge both sides (employee and employer) of the statutory social security pension if you are a freelancer. Are there countries that don't make this a requirement? It is crippling having to pay out upwards of 19% of your income into a state pension.

How to find accomodation in Las Palmas, Canary Islands

Where do I get good legal advice/support to have a long-term stay in Portugal?


in Lisbon, Portugal by @mzorrilla | 29d 29 days ago | 4 comments

Hello, everyone!

My idea is to stay as low as 6 months and as long as a year (maybe, who knows) over Lisbon after doing some analysis from many cities in Europe.

I'm an Argentinian and Chilean (both nationalities) so... no Euro-pass for me (getting my Italian nationality could take 2 years easily). I'm also a remote worker and I have a really good income (I work for a Silicon Valley company) so I can show more than enough resources to stay in the country.

Everything I see online doesn't inspire me much confidence (most sites looks a bit scammy) and this is not a "vacation stay"... I want to be clear my head far away from Argentina right now. If someone has a good website, recommendations, etc I will super appreciate.

Thanks in advance!

How do I get Travel/Medical Insurance for Portugal for visa application from Australia?


in Portugal by @jonathanpoh | 1mo 1 month ago | 5 comments

I'm preparing my Portuguese D7 long-term visa application and one of the required documents is proof of travel insurance with medical coverage. However, as an Australian citizen, if put that as my country of residence in many travel insurance companies' quick quote forms, I'm unable to get ANY insurance coverage at all because of the current travel ban out of Australia, and the Australian govt's 'Do Not Travel' advice to ALL countries. I know that Aussies are applying for, and successfully getting visas from the Portuguese Consulate here, so where and how are they fulfilling this insurance requirement if insurers aren't selling any coverage? Does anybody know or have any ideas?

Video chat coworking solutions?


in Brazil by @essentiallyint | 1mo 1 month ago | 2 comments

I am new to working out of coworking spaces. My business entails a lot of video conferences. I haven't chosen a specific coworking space yet but generally, what are the potential solutions for this? I have a microphone and headphones but still fell like it may be inconsiderate to take the calls anywhere in the coworking space. For a solo person, what are some general solutions? Are there usually options to rent a private room by the hour with just enough room to set up my microphone and laptop? Sidenote: any coworking space recommendations in Florianapolis, Brazil would also be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Is there a map of countries open for travel now?


in Russia by @vernon99 | 1mo 1 month ago | 7 comments

I have two passports from different countries and am trying to understand where can I travel now. Is there a publicly available map of countries open for visitors by passport country that I can use to see what are my options? I was pretty sure such a thing should exist, but cannot easily find any.

Maybe at least there're maps for specific passports? Mine are Russian and American.

If there's no such thing, I'd be down to build one, let me know if interested to collaborate :)

Cheap Cities in Mexico & South America with Fastest Wifi


in Mexico by @jnomad30 | 1yr 1 year ago | 3 comments

Hi Guys,
Iโ€™m planning out my next stops after leaving Medellin, Colombia soon where I can hunker down and get some work done with fast wifi and cheap living. Will be in Mexico first so starting a look there but wondering if coming back down to South America might make more sense?
My main concerns are budget and fast enough wifi for me to work from home. Other considerations are some nomad community (ideally also some English speaking expats as my Spanish is basic) and warm enough weather.
Thanks in advance!

Co-working space in Shanghai WITHOUT monthly payment

Daily/hourly pass needed.
Canโ€™t work in normal cafรฉ because having clientโ€™s laptop for security reasons, canโ€™t use open networks. Working for R&D. Also laptop is so huge it doesnโ€™t fit normal cafe environment because itโ€™s far from discreet.

Where to buy Sony A7RIII, Macbook Pro ... CHEAPEST :)


by @vesko89 | 2yr 2 years ago | 1 comment

Ola!
I am starting soon with my Digital Nomad Lifestyle and I need to buy a lot of gear.

  • Sony A7RIII + Lenses
  • MacBook Pro
  • GoPro6
  • Drone DJI Phantom 4 Pro

This are the most expensive parts.

So in which Country should I buy the stuff? I am living in Germany at the moment and its not really cheap here. Would be great to save some money and see the country. 2 Flys with 1 Punch :slight_smile:

Thanks for your time!

Best wishes Vesko

Cheapest flight path to Bali from West Coast, US?


by @metamas | 3yr 3 years ago | 2 comments

Iโ€™m making plans to travel from Portland, OR to Canggu, Bali in a little over a month. Looking around at flights now. Can anyone lend experience on the most affordable flight path (airports and airlines) to take?

I subscribe to Scottโ€™s Cheap Flights, but nothing obvious has shown up in that direction (Portland, OR -> Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam -> Bali ???). Iโ€™ve so far just been looking with Google Flights + Momondo. Any other tips from more experienced travelers are much appreciated.

If youโ€™ll be in Canggu Sep/Oct, Iโ€™ll return any favors with tasty eats and cold drinks :tropical_drink: :stew: :blush:

Anyone Else in China?


in China by @nathanthomas | 4yr 4 years ago | 12 comments

Hi Team,

Iโ€™m totally new here so forgive me if Iโ€™ve made some horrible faux pas by asking a question so soon :slight_smile:

Iโ€™m a kiwi but have been a digital nomad for over three years now, and have spent the last year or so in China, currently in Shanghai.

Are there many other digital nomads in this part of the world? Most of the international friends Iโ€™ve made locally are students or corpo expats, Iโ€™ve not come across that many entrepreneurial / nomadic types here - the visa and internet issues certainly make this understandable, though the country very much rewards long term travel.

Would be curious to see if there are many other like minded folk here?

Cheers,
Nathan

Can Europeans also fly cheaper using credit cards and gain miles?


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

I hear more and more about digital nomads (mainly from the US and Canada) flying cheap (almost for free) by taking advantage of bonuses given by banks / credit card companies. Iโ€™m not exactly sure how the system works.

Is it also possible to do for Europeans ? If so, how ?
If not, do know any other hacks to fly cheaper ?

Many thanks for your help.

What is the cheapest option to get out of Colombia for 1-2 weeks and come back


in Colombia by @matthieudrula | 5yr 4 years ago | 6 comments

Hi,
This is quite a specific question but can be generic in term of method.
I need to get some time out of Bogota so I can come on the remaining days of my touristic visa in order to enrol in a cheapest university to study Spanish.
So basically going out for 2 weeks, come back, do the papers during the 3 remaining weeks.
Iโ€™m trying to find the cheapest flight + hotel combination for this period of time using Nomadlist.
Anybody has a better method/experience?

How to exchange money cheaply?

 

by @neutron | 5yr 4 years ago | 26 comments

Just thought I would give a tip for something thats been amazingly useful for me recently.

Itโ€™s basically a pre-paid debit card, where itโ€™s free to exchange into Euro GBP and Dollar.

There are no costs to use it. You upload money into it and then it exchanges it at โ€œinter-bank ratesโ€ - the same rates as the banks get I believe.

No commisions, No costs, No discrepancies in FX rates.

I reckon I must have saved around ยฃ150 this month in various fees for things.

Another good one is transferwise - if you have to send money direct to someones bank account - there are charges but very small (like ยฃ2 to send ยฃ400)

Hope it can help a few people out there and give the banks a good duff up at the same time :slight_smile:

How do you manage your laundry?


by @jeanbog | 5yr 4 years ago | 10 comments

Hello ! :slightly_smiling:

I am wondering how do you manage your laundry work flow.

I ask this question because since I investigate the minimalist way of life I only have 4 teeshirts.
So I changed my habits and I wash my teeshirt, my boxer and my socks while taking a shower (takes me 6 more minutes).

How about you ?
Are you reducing your laundry flow, like by wearing merinos wool clothes ?
Are you going to lavomatic one time a week because you have enough clothes for all the week ?
Are you going to lavomatic more often that once a week because you have only few clothes ?
Are you handwashing your clothers ? how and how often ?
