The beauty of digital nomadism is that it allows you to stay in places you love for longer.
But where will the best digital nomad destinations be for 2024? A recent study could have the answers.
InterNations recently surveyed its large community of expats and digital nomads to find the locations where people enjoy being the most.
It ranked no fewer than 49 different destinations around the world, however, these seven rated as some of the very best:
Southeast Asia’s original megacity, Bangkok is as charming as it is chaotic.
Despite continuous popularity, Bangkok remains an affordable and fun place to spend some time as a digital nomad.
The sheer size of the city means accommodation can be found at a decent rate; public transport is also cheap, as are ride-share apps such as Grab, while you can enjoy a hearty meal in a restaurant for less than $15 in some cases.
It’s also one of my all-time favorite destinations for solo travel.
Surrounded by beautiful beaches and basking in a warm Mediterranean climate with more than 300 days of sunshine a year, Malaga has a lot going for it as a digital nomad destination.
Combining a perfect blend between Andalusian history and modern culture, there’s a lot more to the artsy town of Malaga than the stereotypes would have you believe.
There are plenty of parties to be found if you’re the type who wants to make friends, while the iconic Alcazaba fortress and museums dedicated to the life and work of artist Pablo Picasso offer a more chilled, cultural way to experience this destination.
Mexico City, Mexico
The sprawling metropolis that is Mexico City is easily one of the most popular destinations for solo travelers and digital nomads in Latin America.
From the hipster neighborhoods of Roma and La Condesa to the mainstream icons like Palacio de Bellas Artes, Mexico City has no shortage of attractions to keep you entertained for as long as you decide to stay.
The city has many positives for digital nomads, such as an easy visa, generally affordable cost of living, good internet, and a relatively good record when it comes to safety, despite what you may have heard.
Recently rated as one of the cheapest Mediterranean destinations, Alicante is situated on Spain’s Costa Blanca and has stunning beaches to match that name.
Food, public transport, and accommodation are all very reasonable in Alicante, despite its popularity as a holiday town for much of Europe.
Break up your working day with trips out to one of the many beaches or visiting one of the regions historic castles, such as Santa Barbara.
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
The colorful capital of Malaysia has a different vibe to many of its Southeast Asian counterparts, with a slightly slower pace of life and less chaotic nature.
It’s a multicultural city with desirable nightlife, a fantastic food scene, and some iconic landmarks such as the Petronas Towers and the KL Tower.
Malaysia is also regarded as a very safe country for digital nomads, and it has better infrastructure than many of its neighbors in the region.
If you decide to go, be sure to visit the nearby Batu Caves for a taste of Malaysian culture and wildlife.
A fine example of how to blend age-old tradition with cutting-edge modernity, Valencia is a trendy and increasingly popular city for digital nomads to spend some time in.
You can see the old side of Valencia at icons such as the Miguelete and Holy Grail Cathedral and the Barrio del Carmen, while the more modern side is on display in the stylish City of Arts and Sciences area.
Valencia is relatively cheap and has very clean, efficient, and affordable public transport including trams, which can be used to easily get out to its beautiful beach.
The final Spanish destination rounding off this list is the capital of Madrid.
While it doesn’t have the year-round warm temperatures of some of its coastal counterparts, it is a city dripping with culture and history.
Americans have been attracted here in record numbers, perhaps in part thanks to iconic sights such as the Plaza Mayor, the Royal Palace, or the many quiet and beautiful gardens around the city.
