Time to re-discover the Beautiful Island!
Updated: Apr 22, 2019
I am right now visiting one of the most underrated destinations for digital nomads...
I am in Taipei for two weeks to improve my mandarin Chinese (never too old to learn something 😂) and I am surprised that Taiwan did not make it to the list of the top 25 most popular destinations for digital nomads in a survey analyzing 12,000 Instagram images by GapYearEscape...🤔 💰 In Asia, the top nomad destinations were Bali, Chiangmai, Phuket, Bangkok, Singapore, Hong Kong, Sidney...
💰 I think Taipei definitely should have made the list: just based on the visa situation, the cost of living, the infrastructure and the friendliness of its people, I think it compares favorably with many destinations. It also has the tallest mountain in South East Asia (Yushan, Jade Mountain, culminating at 3,952m) and beautiful natural parks. 💰 The vibe is naturally different from beach towns in Thailand. It feels more like a relaxed city lifestyle and prices are as cheap as Thailand.
It does not help of course that even Taiwanese do not speak about their city with superlatives. This modesty is not warranted in my books. Go visit Taiwan!👍 💰 Let me know if you have ever visited and how you liked it 🙏
