If like traveling and for you it doesn’t really matter where you are, simply because you can live anywhere and to work you only need your laptop, it’s always a good idea to choose a cheap country to live in, as long as it’s a nice cosy country with good internet connection. There are a number of options for that in all parts of the world – especially in Europe and Asia.
Malta is becoming more popular every year because of its tax laws relating to gaming companies. Life in Malta isn’t the cheapest, but at the same time you have 300 days of sunshine a year, lots of people like you around, 2 euro beer, wifi everywhere, and it’s also safe. One negative thing in Malta is the cost for rentals which often starts at 600 euros for a flat plus utilities. But you can find a room in a shared house or apartment for half of that. Although nowadays there are also many people offering a room for 500 or 600. So in Malta everything besides the rentals (and actually, taxis) are with okay prices, for rentals you might want to consider playing powerball online for some extra unexpected income.
Depending on what you’re looking for, you can go for the quiet North part with not so many tourists or the more touristy South as well as the islands. The prices are good, weather is even better. Chiang Mai is just one of the places quite popular in Thailand, a place I have heard about from a number of people I know. The place also has great coworking spaces.
Romania is one of the cheapest countries to live in Europe, a country with also relatively good weather. You could set up your home base there and do it quite cheaply.
Vietnam, and maybe Ho Chi Minh City specifically is a very popular destination for digital nomads. Fresh cheap street food, cheap living, good internet connection.
In Southeast Asia, Indonesia is one great option for your home base. Where to go is always a good question, considering there’s over 17000 islands to explore. Prices are cheap, although in some more touristy destinations not so much anymore.
These are just couple of options for you. There are a number of other countries you could consider using as your home base if you’re a digital nomad as well. Countries like Cambodia, India, Laos, Cuba. And in Europe Portugal, Spain and the Canary islands.
