Learn About 5 Great Remote Work Destinations

Maui, Hawaii, United States of America

Work is probably the last thing that springs to mind when you think about Maui, which is why you might be shocked to find that it’s one of the greatest remote work destinations in the world. Hawaii has lately launched a campaign to entice remote workers to visit its lovely islands. The island’s picturesque coastlines, year-round warm weather, and yearly whale migration are just a few of the features that make it a desirable stop for digital nomads.


Maui isn’t inexpensive, so plan and hunt for the best bargains during shoulder seasons (when the island is less crowded with tourists).

Hungary’s capital, Budapest

Try Budapest if you’re looking for a small work vacation in Europe. The city is less expensive than many other major European cities, so you can stay longer or enhance your accommodations compared to what you would get for the same money in a place like Paris or Vienna.

Budapest also boasts a few coworking spaces scattered across the city, which, combined with its rich history, gorgeous landscape, and unique architecture, contribute to the city’s reputation as one of the best remote work destinations in the world.

The Indonesian island of Bali

Bali is a fantastic remote work destination for various reasons, including its enticing scenery, vibrant culture, and robust digital nomad community. However, one factor contributing to Bali’s ranking as one of the top five greatest remote work destinations is its low cost of living.


CNBC recently calculated that living a “six-figure lifestyle” in Bali, including living in a villa with weekly massages, would cost around $3,000 per month (all food and entertainment included). However, if you’re more frugal and would “settle” for a decent apartment rather than a villa, living in Bali would cost you only about $1,125 per month – weekly massage included.

If you decide to work remotely when Bali reopens, keep in mind that working U.S. hours can be challenging. Bali is 15 hours ahead of Pacific Time, depending on the year.
