How to become a digital nomad – Thailand

The Digital Nomad Dream

The digital nomad dream cannot come true overnight. You cannot possibly expect to quit your 9-5 job and then within moments be earning your first dollar online. It will take many months or even years to build up an income to a level that is high enough and reliable enough that you can go abroad and live the nomadic life without worrying about your financial situation.

The Internet can provide many opportunities to those who want to start the process of working as a digital nomad. Thailand has many benefits such as a low cost of living, so you don’t have to earn as much as you would have done in the United Kingdom or America to have a decent life.

Thailand is without a doubt one of the biggest tourist destinations, Bangkok and Chiang Mai are just two of the most popular places to go where you will find other digital nomads with plenty of co-working places where you can meet up with other digital nomads.

You will also find many other digital nomads and so many expats in other locations around Thailand, normally in the coastal areas of Thailand. Although Chiang Mai is not a coastal area with beaches, it has a very high population of digital nomads.
