Thailand is known as a fantastic destination for digital nomads and world travelers. But the Northern Thai city of Chiang Mai specifically has become somewhat of a Digital Nomad Promised Land over the years. It’s a legendary destination where all remote online workers eventually seek fast WiFi, cheap coffee, and connections with other entrepreneurs.

There is a great food scene in Chiang Mai and a lot of excellent street food. You can even find pretty good Western food if you are missing the taste of a burger. It's a very affordable place to live, which is great if you start as a digital nomad and scale up your business.

If you love nature and outdoor sports, there are many great opportunities here to go on adventures, including caving, trekking, zip-lining, golf, archery, rock climbing, and more.

Explaining the placement of Bangkok as the world's top workcation destination in the list, we can describe the city as extremely affordable, packed with English-speaking natives, and full of things to see and do. The boom of Asian investment has led to many multinational companies relocating to Bangkok, meaning that the city now offers high-class facilities to international entrepreneurs and people in business.

In the downtime, why not visit some of the hundreds of palaces across the city, with the most famous being the Grand Palace and Wat Po? It also offers a variety of shopping centers with high street boutiques and the morning floating markets are perfect for sampling local food.
