Sawasdee krab! (‘Hello’ in Thai)
As pictures speak more than a thousand words, I decided to just create a photo/video compilation and write a little text with it.
Earlier this year I was in Bali for two months, to do a combination of work and travel.
In Bali I was together with Sven (my brother) and Fleur (my girlfriend). After my return home, the concept of working remotely stuck with me and I really wanted to do another trip. So I decided to take some action.
Destination: Thailand (Bangkok and Chiang Mai). I chose this destination after using the website www.nomadlist.com. It’s a website that shows all places around the world with all sorts of ratings regarding working remotely. Chiang Mai and Bangkok are both high on the overall rating list.
After getting allowance from my employer to go, I planned 1 month Thailand.
As I expected.. it a great experience! Chiang Mai and Bangkok were indeed perfect locations to work remotely. I think the ease of living in both places is the thing I enjoyed the most. Nice weather (30C+), great and cheap food all around and very good facilities to work. And outside working hours I could do some tours and get to know Thailand a bit. What more do you want?..
I’m certain this won’t be my last remote work trip. I really like the mix of my life in the Netherlands and these remote work trips for a couple of months a year. Looking forward to the next one already!
Anyway I hope you’ll enjoy the compilation, it’s only 2 minutes as I didn’t take a lot of photos/video’s.
