5 top cities for your remote career!

You already know that you have endless opportunities when you have a remote career! All you need except a good connection, is an exciting city to live in and that is cheap! I have the best city-tips for you who is looking for a new experience!

Barcelona, Spain

WHY? Well, not only does Barcelona have a fantastic climate with fresh innovative tapas, it is also one of the biotech capitals! You can easily find online work that tends to start between 09.00 – 10.00 in the morning, while your evening expenditures go to cheap drinks ($5 mojitos and caipirinhas). An average apartment can cost around 350-500 euro room/month or rent a one-bedroom apartment for some 650 – 850 euro. Other than that, language can be a challenge, but Barcelona is a multicultural city with plenty of people speaking english.

Budapest, Hungary

WHY? Have you ever wanted to live in an enormous apartment with high ceilings for 400 euros a month and lingering historical buildings? If you haven’t been yet, then Budapest is the capital for you. Situated in Central Europe and the city is swimming in delicious food specialities like goulash, wines and pork specialities. A beer costs only about 2 euros and expect low costs in your utility bills! Can’t get better than that! Live in a city with a fantastic nightlife with low costs that helps you live a great lifestyle with bubbly expat life. This is a good place to start your remote career!

Phuket, Thailand

WHY? Now, I know this seems like an obvious choice, but no city can beat this tropical island and fantastically cheap prices both in terms of rent and weekly living expenditure. The only problem could be that there are beaches as long as the eye can see that might distract you from your work. There are plenty of hotels but they also offer renting a room on a monthly basis for about 200 dollars a month. Just make sure you have the internet capacity you require for your work. And due to its idyllic location with good connection, you can find a lot of other digital nomads hanging around if you need friends.

Medellin, Colombia

WHY? We all know the dark history of Medellin in Colombia with one of the most dangerous men, Pablo Escobar, but don’t let that fool you! After massive social and economic reformations the last decade, it is one of the most exciting cities in South America. Most places in the city has good wifi-connection, but at times it can cut so be aware of that when you rent a place. Medellin has a year-round temperate climate. Known as the “City of Eternal Spring,” it never gets too hot or too cold. Renting a hotel or room can be as little as $200 a month but make sure you stay in the exciting “El Poblado” area for maximum pleasure.

Vancouver, Canada

WHY? I cannot make this city list without mentioning the exciting city of Vancouver, Canada! This city offers seasonal excitements as well as a large expat group. In the winter months, you can stand on a clear urban Olympic-venue ski mountains just a 30-minute drive from town. The warm summers have a 16 daylight hours daylight where locals enjoy every minute of sun before sparking up the inevitable bonfires. The city offers plenty of cosy cafes with high speed internet so you won’t be looking long for a place to work. If you are lucky, you can get an awesome room or studio for about 1000 dollars a month. Now, I know this is the most expensive city I have to recommend, but what it lacks in cost of living, it compensates by being a multicultural city with plenty of free activities for its citizens.
