BANGKOK – Digital nomads are constantly hunting for famous countries with low cost of living. The trend of increasing work from anywhere (WFA) has made many countries compete to provide cheap facilities.
With salaries in dollars, digital nomads often move from one country to another. The goal is a country that does not use the United States (US) dollar currency.
Apart from looking for a low cost of living, countries with various attractive tourist destinations are the main targets for digital nomads. That’s because apart from working, they can go on adventures and find new things.
Here are 7 countries that have a low cost of living for digital nomads.
