40 Best Places to Work Remotely & Travel: Top Cities for Remote Workers

By Rad Aswani

During the pandemic, remote work meant packing yourself into the spare room or walk-in closet — or, if you were lucky, retreating to your home office. As remote and hybrid work became more normalized, we began to see additional spaces open up.

But what if you took your hybrid workspace a step further?

What if you took it a whole state further?

If your daily commute involves rolling out of bed and into your office chair, who says that office chair has to be in your home? Who says you can’t fulfill that lifelong dream of seeing gorgeous sites while holding down your dream job?

Welcome to the trend that combines travel with telecommuting and will boost your productivity and happiness along the way. If you’ve ever wanted to experience a new locale without ditching your job, this lifestyle may be for you. So, here’s how to pick the best places to work from home that will help you get the most out of your experience.

How to Choose the Right City

If the idea of working remotely and traveling the world appeals to you, great! But that doesn’t mean you should just pack up your van and hit the road — you’ve got to be smart about your destination. Save the Australian Outback for your vacation days; here’s how to choose the best place to work away from home for your remote or hybrid job.

Places to Work Remotely-Travel

Internet connection

A good Wi-Fi connection is imperative for anyone who’s working away from home. You’ll need excellent Wi-Fi speed and reliability to ensure that your video calls, emails, document sharing, and the like get to where they need to go. Don’t assume that you can make things work with nothing more than your phone’s hotspot — that’s going to get expensive fast.


Sometimes working from home just won’t cut it, so make sure that your chosen city has alternative work spots to visit. Whether these be dedicated co-working spaces, a lovely little café with great Wi-Fi, or your favorite coffee shop or park, the choice is up to you.

Cost of living

You may be dreaming of sandy Cali beaches — but is that view going to agree with your budget? You’re going to pay more for shelter, food, and travel expenses in some cities. Be sure to carefully research the cost of living so you can feel confident that your workcation isn’t going to break the bank.


Travel opportunities

Oftentimes the best remote work cities are the ones that offer plenty of things to do after work while also providing the perfect hub for longer weekend trips. When you’re picking the best places to work remotely, be sure to consider all the fun things you can do when you’re off the clock. Bonus points if your chosen city has easy access to an airport for further travel!

Ease of travel

If you’re a US citizen traveling around the country, your workcation may be easier to plan than it would if you decide to venture outside US borders. Want to see new countries and continents? Great! Just be sure you plan for any applicable visas or work permits your chosen city may enforce. Psst…some countries are now offering digital nomad visas for this exact purpose!


We wish it was as easy as taking a short-term rental in Cali and enjoying the ocean breeze from your in-home office. We really do. Unfortunately, unless you’re lucky and work in one of the nine states that don’t require income tax on earned wages, you may be on the hook for paying state taxes.


40 Top Cities for Remote Workers from Around the World

Ready to plan your next work/travel trip? We’ve created a list of 40 of the best cities for remote work that you can visit this year. Each city on this list was chosen based on factors like:

Cost of living. Does the city have ample and affordable rental spaces? Eateries? Can a solo travel afford to stay here?

Safety. Is it safe for travelers (even solo and women travelers)? Is the city generally friendly to outsiders?

Culture. Does the city have easy access to unique events, sites, architecture, monuments, parks, etc.?

Ease of travel. Will you need a special visa to work in the city? If so, is it easy to acquire? Is the city easy to get to, and once there, will you be able to navigate it?

Job connectivity. Does the city have fast internet connectivity? Are there co-working spaces to use if needed?

If a city scored well on all these points, it made our list! Keep in mind that our theoretical digital nomad is a US citizen traveling solo — some information may not be applicable to families, expats, or non-US citizens.
