Excerpt From the Book

I am Barbara Riedel and I have been living as a digital nomad since 2014. As a travel blogger, I’ve moved a lot in the last few years, 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”. The blog posts there contain general information for digital nomads that enable a smooth start in a new country.
After a while, I decided something more detailed would be nice. My first Digital Nomads Guide was about my second hometown – Palermo. I chose Saigon for this guide because it’s a hotspot for expats and digital nomads in South East Asia.
I’d also like to introduce you to my co-author for this guide – Nguyen Thanh Thao. We wrote this guide together so you could have even more information and places to check out.
