Hey there, fellow wander-working soul!

Are you on the hunt for a workspace that pairs productivity with paradise? Say no more! I’m about to spill the beans on some of the world’s most scenic (and wallet-friendly) spots to set up your digital nomad camp.

Ready for a desk with a view?

1. For the Beach Bums: Canggu, Bali, Indonesia

Picture this: Typing away with the rhythmic sound of waves crashing, surrounded by emerald rice fields and a coconut in hand. Canggu is a digital nomad hotspot, with countless co-working spaces, reliable Wi-Fi, and cost-effective accommodations.

Insider Tip: Local warungs (food stalls) serve mouthwatering meals for just a few dollars. Perfect for that lunch break!

2. For the Culture Vultures: Chiang Mai, Thailand

Step into a city where traditional temples meet modern cafes. Chiang Mai is not just culturally rich, but it’s also incredibly nomad-friendly. You’ll find co-working spaces sprinkled all over, complete with fellow freelancers and start-up spirits.

Insider Tip: Venture to Nimmanhaemin Road for a mix of work-friendly cafes and delicious street food.

3. For the Urban Explorers: Medellín, Colombia

Known as the ‘City of Eternal Spring,’ Medellín offers a mild climate, vibrant art scenes, and a growing community of digital nomads. Co-working spaces are aplenty, and the view of the surrounding Andes mountains? Simply breathtaking.

Insider Tip: Public transport here is top-notch. The metro is a seamless way to explore during your downtime.

4. For the Old Soul: Tbilisi, Georgia

Cobblestone streets, charming architecture, and the Caucasus Mountains in the backdrop – Tbilisi is an underrated gem. The Georgian government even launched a visa program specifically for remote workers, so you’ll be more than welcomed.

Insider Tip: Local wine and khachapuri (cheesy bread) make for the perfect end-of-day treat.

5. For the Coastal Lovers: Da Nang, Vietnam

This coastal city is a perfect blend of sandy shores and urban hustle. With its affordable living costs, beachside cafes, and growing community of expats, Da Nang is fast becoming a nomad’s favorite.

Insider Tip: Renting a motorbike is an economical way to get around and explore nearby spots like Hoi An.

6. For the Foodies: Oaxaca City, Mexico

Oaxaca is a feast for the senses. Set amidst colonial buildings and colorful streets, you’ll find cozy coffee shops perfect for work. And when hunger strikes, indulge in the city’s famed cuisine, from mole to tlayudas.

Insider Tip: Local markets are a treasure trove of crafts and delicacies. Perfect for souvenir hunting!


In today’s connected world, the ‘office’ can be wherever you fancy. With these dreamy locations, not only do you get to feed your wanderlust, but you also find inspiring vistas that just might boost your work mojo. After all, who wouldn’t be inspired by a beachfront sunset or a mountainous skyline?

So, pack up that laptop and set forth. The world is your co-working space, and I can’t wait to hear where you’re heading next.

Happy wandering and working, dear nomads!
