The digital nomad phenomenon has only just begun in the big scheme of
things. These location independent entrepreneurs, as they would much rather be called, fly around the world at a moment’s notice, use their skills to make money various ways, but mostly online and helping others to do similar. There are so many websites, YouTube videos and applications devoted to this niche market, well most of these websites have been created for and by digital nomads themselves. Well everyone loves Chiang Mai and they rave about it everywhere, so at some time you will find yourself in Chiang Mai. It’s number 3 on Nomadlist – https://nomadlist.com/chiang-mai-thailand .
Before you you come to Chiang Mai, you will read all about how being there is cheap, full of others “doing what you’re doing” and has a laid back lifestyle with all the amenities of your city, with a lot less crime and problems. You will have a lot of questions and will want answers, so here is a list of great Chiang Mai Nomad Facebook groups full of information and insights about living in Chiang Mai.
