As the global shift to remote working shows no sign of switching back, workers across the world are leaving behind the traditional office setup to WFH permanently – and for many, that means relocating! In the US, at least, 20% of the current workforce are freelance workers and that number has been predicted to grow to 40% by the mid-2020s. So, where will people want to answer emails from?
Global travel site Big 7 Travel has released the official list of the best cities (and islands!) to work from remotely in 2021.
With more and more yearning for an independent work environment coupled with the freedom to travel, remote working is on its way to the mainstream field. Not to mention, the ongoing pandemic has especially forced many to reconsider where they are basing themselves. Simply put, remote working is the future, and it’s on its way fast.
The core data of affordability and internet access has been gathered from Nomad List with many other variables taken into account, including countries which offer specific Digital Nomad visas, and where to find the coolest co-working spaces and expat friendly communities. Whether you are already living a digital nomad lifestyle, or are aiming for one, this list has you covered.
Big 7 Travel found that the best places to work remotely in 2021 include Tallinn, Estonia; Bali, Indonesia and Buenos Aires, Argentina.
Budapest is listed in the 38th place, coming before cities like Prague and Melbourne.
The site characterizes Budapest as a vibrant, quirky, historically rich melting pot of a capital. “When it comes to thriving cities for remote workers in central Europe, Budapest is a cut above the rest. The internet zooms at 34 MBPS, coworking spaces abound, and the overall cost of living shouldn’t set up back more than $2,000/month. Often referred to as the ‘Paris of the East’ it’s no wonder that Budapest is also a cultural hub just dying to be explored”.
