These Digital Nomads Are On An Epic Overland Journey Around The World
For example, our small group tours in Colombia, Central America and Iran have been selling consistently well throughout the year. Across the world the number of people over the age of 60 is expected to move from million in to two billion by , according to the UN. Cruise companies have also spotted a trend, markedly so in Asia, where grandma and grandpa are coming onboard with their sons and daughters and their children.
He also said targeting oldies is one way to tackle the seasonality created by Chinese holidaying patterns — by filling in off-peak with seniors. All Rights Reserved. Agent Stories Golden opportunities with a silver lining. By Ian Jarrett. Here was one rock festival where you were more likely to score wild mushrooms rather than the magic variety.
I think the easiest big city in Asia for westerners to feel comfortable in. People are generally pretty friendly on a superficial level, quick to smile, laugh, and help. Unfortunately, becoming real friends with Japanese is much more difficult and most cannot speak English. Store staff are mechanically polite like robots, which is better than rude, but also a bit weird.
A bit pricey and gets more expensive after a year of residence after you get taxed based on previous year's salary, same for health insurance fees. You can drink in public at any time, though it's not really a drinker city like some European cities are known for. Clubs and music events are expensive unfortunately, though quite a few options. Great public transport system, can just be a bit confusing with all of the different names. The street layout is completely chaotic, which can be fun but also disorienting. You will often have no idea which direction you are facing, like you are in a giant maze.
You can find most major international food options but not in great numbers. Obviously, Japanese food is everywhere though.

It's technically on the water, though odds are you will live more inland. Still, you can reach the bay within an hour or so and an actual beach further south in Kanagawa within 90min. Japan itself has a lot of cool things to check out as well. Best time of year are spring cherry blossoms and fall cooler, leaves changing cooler , though there are a series of summer festivals that start in August that are incredible people dress in traditional clothes, food vendors all over, tons of fireworks, etc. Dating for men is not bad, just don't come expecting every woman wants you.
As mentioned before, most cannot speak English and they're somewhat conservative overall, not big on casual sex. You may have an advantage in the dating pool if you're not an English teacher, since most western foreign guys there are and that job is known for not paying that well, and definitely do if you can speak Japanese near fluently. Some negatives besides those already mentioned: it's really humid and mold develops quickly, there are A LOT of crows that creeped me out and cicadas that are VERY noisy in the summer, finding the right specialist doctor that also speaks English can be tricky, the friends you make from other countries come and go constantly, a lot of guys with issues come here socially awkward, major womanizers, right wing nuts, escaping something from their home country, stereotypical anime fanatics, etc.
Main advantage of Vietnam in general is the ease of getting a visa. That's real nice but there are some big problems here. The food is terrible. Bland soups with slippery, boring rice noodles topped with weird stuff like pig's feet are not my idea of a good meal. Neither are sandwiches with fatty mystery meats. Thailand, Malaysia, and Indonesia all have way better food. The sushi I've had here was also terrible. The city itself is pretty ugly. Every building is the same tall, skinny shape. Overall safety is low and you'll probably end up in a traffic accident if you stay here long enough.

It costs more to rent a place and if you're on a low budget you'll likely end up in a home stay or guesthouse when you could have rented an apartment for the same price in another city. Many places have curfews, even as early as 8pm, so make sure to ask your Airbnb about that because they won't bother to mention it in the listing.
Avoid the rainy season. Everything just works. The food by Singaporean Hawkers are world-class for a good price too.
I think KL will be the next hub for nomads. It's affordable, safe, convenient, has decent Internet and has decent weather.

And that's not even mentioning the food, which is incredible. Cons: no Uber or metered taxis so getting around is a total pain and the wild dogs at night can be treacherous. Overall, I don't understand why it's slipped in the rankings bc it really is awesome. Shanghai is a giant city and your experience really depends on a few factors like: 1 where you live in the city 2 do you speak basic Mandarin 3 do you make nice money 4 do you have to use the internet If you can afford to live in Jing'an or the French Concession, you can live a fashionable metropolitan lifestyle like you would in New York City.
Which Digital Nomad Are You?
There's amazing food Asian, Western and fusion. You'll be surrounded by entrepreneurs, artists, fashion designers and models. Many of whom do speak English. It gets better if you speak basic Mandarin though. You don't need to care about the characters. Just learn to speak, that's important enough. The nice thing about Mandarin is China is so big everyone has an accent, so for Chinese it really doesn't matter so much that you have one too. Depending on how and what kind of money you make, your experience also changes.
Like most places in Asia, English teachers are the lowest rank in the hierarchy of foreigners here.
Chinese know. But if you're an entrepreneur, even or especially an online one, that's high regarded. The problem with working online here is obviously the firewall which can make it very difficult. I've heard good stories about Shadowsocks which seems to work better than regular VPNs. The recent China vs. America tensions are in fact making people slightly more hostile against Western foreigners. But remember this is Shanghai, it's a metropolitan city, they're usually much less xenophobic than out in the country.
Mostly Shanghainese are happy to embrace foreigners, become friends with them, as long as they speak English.
And as long as you invest a lot of time. Just popping in and out like a nomad isn't necessarily going to work so well with Chinese. Relationships are long-term. I've been here a couple times, living in HCMC right now.
Handling family events and emergencies when traveling as nomads
Compared to HCMC, there's alot less traffic and pollution. Beach is a huge plus. Locals are super friendly. Loads of Korean tourists.
