If, like millions of other people, you make your living online, you are fortunate enough to be able to live where you please, and of the many attractive destinations in this world, Bangkok must surely be one of the most desirable places to set up home. While the cost of living is constantly rising, no matter where you are, accommodation is very cheap in Bangkok, which is just one of the many reasons why digital nomads choose Bangkok as their base.
A Google search will reveal a long-term stay in a condo in Ekkamai, Bangkok, where you can enjoy the shared pool, fitness room, laundry service and round the clock manned security, and, of course, free Wi-Fi might also be included. While there are many areas in Bangkok, Ekkamai is the ideal location, which sits on the main Sukhumvit Road, not far from Asoke intersection. A couple of months deposit is all it takes to move in, plus you rent for 6-12 months, depending on your preference.
As you probably know, Bangkok street food is widely recognised as being the best in the world, which is also very cheap, and with 7-11 convenience stores on every corner, buying provisions is a breeze. You can also order pizzas online, which are delivered to your door by motorcycle riders, plus there are many great Thai restaurants, each with its own unique menu.
The standard of Internet service is very good in Bangkok, which, of course, in essential when you work online, and most working expats take out an unlimited Internet SIM package that allows you to hotspot your connection to your laptop and that means you can literally work anywhere.
When you move to Bangkok, if you visit a few coffee shops, you will encounter many other expats who work online, so making new friends is easy. As soon as you arrive, join a few of the Facebook expats in Bangkok groups, where you will get a lot of valuable information from veterans who have lived in Bangkok for many years.
Of course, one of the biggest attractions to working in Bangkok is you are only a few hours from a tropical beach paradise, and the many top-rated resorts have hi-speed Internet for their guests. This means you can spend a week sunning yourself on a tropical beach, and there isn’t a better place to login and carry out your work.
