The COVID-19 pandemic changed so much in the world, particularly in three major ways: highlighting healthcare system issues, how not to take small things for granted, and (most importantly for this article) the way we work.
One of the greatest things to come out of the pandemic was the almost global realization that we do not need an office to be productive. Employees who can work remotely can and should explore remote working opportunities whenever they arise.
If you have been thinking of becoming a digital nomad but you do not know where to start, you have come to the right place. Below are the top five cities to move to in 2024 for remote work:
Portugal recently launched a visa designed to help remote workers to replace the former visa process. This visa is particularly appealing to digital nomads who have chosen the country for its beautiful beaches and friendly people.
Lisbon is Portugal’s hilly coastal capital and one that enjoys over 300 sunny days a year. Known for its rich history, delicious food, and stunning architecture, this city is the perfect one to call home for the next year or two.
Budapest is one of the most popular destination cities for digital nomads because it offers a variety of culinary experiences, entertainment, and activities all year round.
Budapest is one of the most affordable cities in Europe, with an average basic cost of living sitting at around $1200 per person in 2023.
This city has a well-priced and efficient public transport system with trains, trams, and bus lines operating within the city and outside of it.
The center of the city is highly walkable because it offers gorgeous scenery while you explore on your days off.
Toronto is a magical city with endless opportunities to further your career and personal relationships.
Looking for a place to stay is simple, with easy ways to find Toronto furnished apartments. These are a great way to explore the city with a place with everything you need to make it a temporary home.
Toronto is home to over 6 million people, so get ready to enjoy a multicultural experience like no other!
Tokyo is a city that never sleeps – it is the New York City of the East. You will always find bars, cafes, eateries, and coworking spaces at any time of the day or night.
That is one of the reasons why freelancers are continually choosing to move to this city. Tokyo has an exciting and thriving startup scene and endless places to work and get a bite to eat.
Move to Tokyo if you want the exciting opportunity to learn a new language, culture, and way of life.
With relatively low living costs and lightning-fast internet, Madrid is a beautiful city to call home in 2024. With a wide array of restaurants and bars, this city offers over 3500 things to do when done with work for the day.
Spain is a welfare state, meaning there is free public access to healthcare and education, which gets funded by social tax contributions of employees in the country.
No matter which city you choose, remember to research the place you want to move to. As fun as it is to travel on a whim, being properly prepared is always better.
