The digital nomad trend of being location independent has become increasingly popular over the last few years, which is why it’s no surprise that many people are seeking remote working opportunities. Besides having endless possibilities for travel, digital nomads can also live a more affordable and flexible lifestyle compared to the typical in-office employee.
54% of digital nomads only visit 1 or 2 countries a year. In 2021, Taiwan was reported to be the best country for digital nomads based on personal satisfaction.
This is followed by Mexico, Costa Rica, Malaysia, and Portugal. Italy, Kuwait, and South Africa have the lowest approval rating in terms of providing a positive nomadic lifestyle.
Digital nomads are also flocking to exotic locations to work. Southeast Asia (especially Bali and Thailand), Costa Rica, and the Caribbean are just some of the most popular destinations.
People are becoming increasingly more interested in digital nomad life.
The term “digital nomad” saw a 247% increase on Google Search from January 2019 to April 2021. Sixty-four million Americans would like to join the digital nomad community, while 19 million plan to actually do so in the next three years.
By 2035, it is expected that the number of people living the digital nomad lifestyle will reach over 1 billion.
Although costs will depend on your accommodation and lifestyle, Goa, India, and Pokhara, Nepal is considered to be two of the cheapest destinations for digital nomads. The average cost of living in both places is around $650 a month.
Many countries require that you obtain a digital nomad visa if you plan on working or staying for extended periods of time. For example, American digital nomads should apply for a working tourist visa if they plan on staying in Portugal, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Germany, the Bahamas, etc despite having visa-free entry as a non-working tourist.
First and foremost, digital nomads need a laptop or computer and a reliable internet connection. To be a successful digital nomad, it’s also important to have an area where you can be productive. For some, that could be a separate room in their house, a coworking space, or even a quiet coffee shop.
Digital nomadism is an enticing lifestyle for many freelancers, business owners, and employees. With more and more people joining the digital nomad movement, we can anticipate this major lifestyle shift to become a more mainstream way of working

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
