Excerpt From the Book

I am Barbara Riedel, and I have been living as a digital nomad since 2014. As a travel blogger, I have moved many times in the last few years, and I am always searching for places to work, information about internet (Wi-Fi or mobile) and so on. That’s why I started a new category on my blog, Barbaralicious, called “digital nomad destinations.” These blog posts contain general information for digital nomads that enable a smooth start in a new country.

After writing these digital nomad destination posts for a while, I realized something more detailed would be nice. I wrote my first Digital Nomads Guide about my second home town – Palermo. I’ve chosen Chiang Mai for my eighth guide because it’s probably the number one hotspot for digital nomads worldwide!

If you’re searching for a super accessible, livable place with a great community, Chiang Mai is the perfect place. As a longstanding nomad hotspot, Chiang Mai developed excellent amenities targeted for digital professionals. The infrastructure is perfect, prices will make it easy to live, even on a low income, and most people there speak English very well. Without language barriers and with its low cost of living, Chiang Mai is a great place to start out as a digital nomad or re-connect to the community.

My friend James Hunt has written several blog posts about the city on his blog Location Independent. You will find parts of them in here! To make it obvious whose parts are whose, I’ve made his parts italic!
