Europe

Estonia

With its wild forests, sweeping all the way from the Russian border to the Baltic Sea, and its cobbled cities dating back millennia, you might think that Estonia was the Europe of old; untouched, undiscovered, untrodden. Not a chance. Proudly rebranded e-Estonia in the noughties, it’s one of the world’s most cutting-edge digital nations. It gave us Skype and harbors more start-ups than Silicon Valley. There’s uber-quick internet and the groundbreaking e-residency scheme that’s a boon for many a digital nomad.

Hungary

Hungary may be one of the less popular tourist sites in Europe, but that doesn’t mean it should be ignored. Full of history, art, and unique culture, Hungary brings a particular aspect to Europe. It truly is a hidden gem. With Roman-inspired architecture and special cuisine, Hungary offers a different travel experience that has visitors falling in love. 

Italy

Ah, Italia. It might be shaped like a boot, but it sure don’t smell, or taste, or look like one! Rolling from the cathedral spires of the Dolomites in the north (like Colorado in the Alps) to the temple-topped coastlines of amazing Sicily in the south, this is one of the great jewels of Europe.

Netherlands

Old yet modern, friendly yet rude, the Netherlands and its people are industrious, intelligent, and beautiful. Among the Dutch, there is a culture of ‘just be normal’, which means not standing out too much and doing as the other dutch do. That sounds like a horror story to my American sensibilities but this way of thinking empowers the country to invent, innovate, and reflect on its work, its history, and its own culture.

Poland

Bursting with culture, rich with history, and astoundingly affordable, Poland could just be the perfect nomad destination you’ve never considered. Ranging from the craggy Tatra Mountains of the south to the windswept sands of the Baltic Sea in the north, it’s one huge cut-out of Europe. Between its boundaries are buzzing cities, rustic farmlands, and wonderful lake districts. There’s just so much to explore.

Portugal

Capping off the very end of Western Europe is a country that’s charmed many a digital nomad in the last decade: Portugal. From the sun-baked Algarve and its glorious beaches in the south all the way to the lush hills of the Douro Valley in the north, it’s a serious looker. The cities buzz with life, no matter if you head for hedonistic Porto or go for the miradors and castles of old Lisbon. The food is a tempting medley of salt cod and fresh veggies. The weather is all ocean breezes and plenty of sun. What’s not to like?

Asia

Cambodia

Cambodia has long been designated a tourists’ paradise in southeast Asia. While for a long time in the past, it has served the purpose of a resting place for exhausted backpackers, recent developments and city up-gradation have undoubtedly changed that scene completely.

Indonesia

Laying across the Equator, spread over a whopping 17,000 islands, dashed by primeval rainforest, and dominated by smoking volcanos, Indonesia is somewhere you’re not likely to forget in a hurry. A real economic powerhouse of Southeast Asia, it’s the most populous Muslim nation on the planet and a doozy of a destination for anyone searching for adventure, peanut-infused foods that zing with spice, legendary surf, and encounters with rare wildlife...

Malaysia

Malaysia is a diverse country filled with picturesque landscapes and intriguing people. You are never far from lush flora and fauna nor a short drive to a bustling city. The towns throughout the country are made up of traditional buildings nestled in amongst buildings of modern architecture. The juxtaposition of their structures is mirrored in their people. The citizens of Malaysia come from a wide range of ethnicities. No matter which city you visit, you meet other digital nomads and ex-pats from your home country.

Philippines

Clear blue skies, tropical weather, and kind people are some of the best features of the Philippines. In this country, you will learn the real meaning of life and appreciate everything around you.

Sri Lanka

Washed by the waves of the Indian Ocean, crumpled by mountains that look like twisted giant’s fingers, and fringed by coconut-strewn beaches, Sri Lanka is an enticing destination no matter who you are. Days of soaking up the sun, munching on far too much curry (just wait for those spice-packed lentil dals at breakfast!), hiking tea-covered slopes, or surfing glassy reefs are all part of the deal. And that’s not even mentioning the immersive mix of Buddhist culture and rich kingly history...

Thailand

Sizzling noodles topped with peanut crumb. Turquoise seas washing into cotton-white sands. Coconut groves and tuk-tuks. Hardy kickboxers and serene Buddhist temples. It can only be Thailand: The Land of Smiles!

Vietnam

Incense swirls around the pagodas. Water buffalo grunt in the rice paddies. Mist blankets the mountains. The South China Sea laps against Halong’s mighty islands. It can only be Vietnam, the S-bending backbone of Southeast Asia.

Oceania

Australia

Surrounded by water but geographers classify it as a continent. Welcome to Australia. It is one of the largest countries and desirable places in the world that comes with diverse wildlife, exotic beaches, and sophisticated metropolitan cities. The opportunities for people who want to work in Australia as a digital nomad are ten-fold, for they have a robust economy with some of the world’s highest wages.

North America

Mexico

Well pour me a tequila and call me Juan – it’s only Mexico! From the dusty canyons of Chihuahua (not the dog!) to the lush jungles of the Yucatan, this corner of North America (yes, it is North America!) is a jewel of a destination.

Central America

Costa Rica

Did you know? Costa Rica falls under the category of happiest countries in the world. Right from its colorful currencies to its world-renowned beaches, there is no doubt why most digital nomads choose to land in this country. Known for its massive biodiversity and world-class coffee beans, Costa Rica is truly a breathtaking place!
