The team at the language-learning app Busuu, have looked into the most popular destinations visited by remote workers.
Data from Statista has found that London was the city visited the most by digital nomads in 2022.
Although it’s expensive, London is very attractive to digital nomads and remote workers for a number of reasons.
London is seen as a great transportation hub with the option of using buses, trains and the underground to get around. The internet connection is also quick and reliable which is a must if you’re working remotely.
On top of that, London offers the best of both worlds – you can enjoy the hustle and bustle of the past paced city lifestyle or live in more tranquil areas like Kingston.
Thailand is also a very popular tourist destination and the second most popular with a lot of digital nomads heading to Bangkok to work.
It’s a place known for having fast Wi-Fi and a large selection of co-working spaces – two really important factors for those looking to travel the world while they work.
Third on the list is the city that never sleeps – New York.
It’s not surprising that New York is high up on the list as it’s a great hub for business and, like Thailand, it has so many co-working spaces to offer.
However, New York is one of the most expensive destinations on the list along with London with the cost of living being quite high.
Remote workers looking to travel to New York should consider their accommodation costs along with the cost of their food before heading to the Big Apple.
Since the pandemic, remote working has become increasingly popular, leading to an increase in digital nomads across the world.
A digital nomad is someone who travels whilst being able work remotely with just an internet connection and their laptop.
