The Top 5 Nomad Cities To Live (Perfect If You Ever Wanted To Live Abroad)

Chiang Mai, Thailand

A personal favourite of several of the BookitList tribe. Chiang Mai manages to compress the vast capitalist comforts of a mega city with the ornate temples and sweeping nature of rural south east asia, into a small charming city, and yet somehow it’s not cramped?! The health food scene is some of the best in the world, and I’d be willing to bet my house and my pet cat you’ve never tried coffee as good as the one served in the award winning coffee mecca… Ristr8to!

Bali is known for its turquoise waters and postcard worthy nature, but it has enough amenities and infrastructure to comfort even the most pampered of Westerners. The contrast of cool, chic hippy bars selling green juices to help you cleanse, with the artistic galleries of Paraty and the surf scene for beach lovers is one that relaxes and invigorates you at the same time. The nightlife is also vibrant enough to let you blow some steam off if you ever overdo it on the work front.

Buenos Aires, Argentina

Mar del Plata, Buenos Aires, Argentina

Argentina’s eclectic capital has a charm that is difficult to put into words. It’s not nearly as crowded as some of it’s South American counterparts and it’s diverse nature makes it equally safe to women and LGBTQ communities. The co-working spaces also make it an ideal fit for digital nomads who primarily work online.

Budapest, Hungary

Budapest, Hungary

The Danube splices this gorgeous city into the respective halves of Buda and Pest. One consisted of the slick inner city business districts, theatres, bohemian bars and exquisite restaurants. The other house bespoke, ornate architecture, castles and bridges that wouldn’t look out of place in a fantasy novel. It’s also incredibly affordable in comparison to other cities of this scale in Europe.

Lisbon, Portugal

Lisbon, Portugal

Culture, weather, sea, people, co-working spaces. It’s hard to find a comparable city in Western Europe that can offer such value. According to Numbeo, the cost of living comparison site, Lisbon has rent prices over 51% cheaper than London! If you haven’t seen the city, try taking a short break by booking an Airbnb in advance and you can have a weekend sample for a couple of hundred quid including flights!
