The Atlas dining guide

Your guide to the finest restaurants across the Etihad route network
July 2019
Have you chosen where you’re going for dinner tonight? Searching for a great restaurant can be overwhelming, which is why Atlas Eats is here to help you decide where to dine out after you’ve touched down. Full of recommendations from around the network, this is your guide to the best spots for a succulent steak or daring dim sum. 01. RAW at M Victoria London, UK
Thanks to the incredible things today’s inventive chefs are doing with vegetables, more people than ever are moving towards plant-based options when they dine out. According to the Waitrose Food & Drink Report 2019, one in eight Britons are now vegan or vegetarian, with a further one in five ‘flexitarian’.
As a result, veg-centric restaurants are sprouting at a rapid rate. Leading the way is RAW at M Victoria, with its sustainable, organic, vegetarian and gluten-free fare (complementing its meatier sister restaurant M Grill). This summer sees a new menu, with starters such as smoked aubergine with a miso glaze, sesame and dashi, main courses like buckwheat risotto with cauliflower, king mushrooms and summer truffle, and sweet treats including drunken pineapple with chili and passionfruit.
Executive Chef Oleg Ibragimov wants to celebrate, not just accommodate, clean eating and free-from dining. “While the dishes are packed full of flavour, I’ve tried to reduce the amount of process involved to allow the organic flavour of the ingredients to really shine,” he says. “Saying that, I have introduced a few fermented ingredients to not only add zing and interest to the plate, but also improve gut health.” Dessert is served at Galvin at the Athenaeum 02. Galvin at The Athenaeum London, UK
The Michelin-starred Galvin brothers champion Britain’s delicious produce at their restaurant in the five-star hotel, The Athenaeum, opposite Green Park. Exciting menus featuring modern takes on British classics include afternoon tea and pre-theatre meals. Watch hot air balloons take off at the Sunrise Valley Picnic in Cappadocia 03. Taskonaklar Hotel Cappadocia, Turkey
Set among the stone chimneys that dot the landscape of Cappadocia, Taskonaklar is a beautiful boutique hotel offering fabulous food, attentive service and picture-perfect views. Dine indoors or choose to make the most of the spectacular surroundings with the Sunrise Valley Picnic. Lounging on rugs and cushions, watch the sun rise as you breakfast on freshly-baked treats. As daylight breaks, the sky fills with gently-bobbing hot-air balloons, giving a dream-like start to another glorious day. The Max on One Grillroom restaurant at Jumeirah Frankfurt 04. Jumeirah Frankfurt Frankfurt, Germany
A great hotel needs a great restaurant and Jumeirah Frankfurt doesn’t disappoint. Max on One Grillroom is your go-to for exceptional meat, fish and vegetarian dishes prepared on an open grill, or enjoy Lebanese cuisine from from the privacy of your room. Show-stopping afternoon tea at St James’s Hotel and Club 05. St. James’s Hotel and Club London, UK
Located close to Buckingham Palace, the five-star St. James’s Hotel and Club treats you to some royal indulgence with its 1840 Afternoon Tea. Designed by Michelin-starred chef William Drabble, it will transport you back to the reign of Queen Victoria and the origin of this decidedly British tradition, serving up Cheshire cheese scones, a tipsy cake soaked in sherry, and – of course – a Victoria sponge cake. You can even enjoy this special afternoon tea in the comfort of your bedroom. Roasted pineapple, coconut rice pudding and ponzu-marinated fennel at Quaglino’s 06. Quaglino’s London, UK
With a name that’s been synonymous with celebrities, royalty and the political elite since it opened in Mayfair in 1929, Quaglino’s remains the go-to spot for those looking for quality, style and an unforgettable dining experience – including the legendary cocktails. 100 Wardour St turns into a hip night time spot with a club in the basement 07. 100 Wardour St London, UK
Call in for a meeting over coffee that segues into a long lunch, or swing by for dinner and dancing into the early hours. At 100 Wardour St, the site of legendary music venue the Marquee Club, that famous Soho spirit stays alive around the clock, with live music five nights a week. Spice world: Masala Zone uses only authentic spices in its dishes 08. Masala Zone London, UK
With its unique interiors oozing exotic glamour and dishes created from the very best Indian ingredients, it’s no wonder that Masala Zone has established itself as a firm favourite among London’s foodies.
Created in 2001 to breathe new life into the capital’s Indian offering, the Masala Zone collection now comprises eight acclaimed locations across central London, each one a treat for the tastebuds and a feast for the eyes. And its march across the city has not gone unnoticed — both the Evening Standard and Daily Telegraph have rated Masala Zone as among the capital’s best, while food critics, including Fay Maschler, have sung its praises. During India’s spice harvest, key ingredients are selected from the best growers and shipped to the UK
Designed to show the diversity of India’s regions, Masala Zone’s menus combine a panoramic range of dishes from across the sub-continent, sourced from noble Maharaja’s palaces, grand gourmet kitchens and vibrant street stalls. Tightly guarded recipes passed from top-class local cooks are given a contemporary twist, with a team of regional master chefs supervising the development of those from their birthplace. Expect vibrant starters, grilled meats packed full of flavour, slow-cooked curries bursting with taste, sophisticated biryanis and delicious desserts made by specialist chefs. Drinks, meanwhile, include cocktails with an Indian twist – try a Lucknowi Fizz or Chai Negroni – plus cool lassis and traditional beers.
Such delectable dishes deserve a setting to match and Masala Zone’s chic restaurants combine Indian artefacts and antiques with western contemporary design. Lighting, too, is carefully planned, with award-winning designers creating warm, inviting spaces you will want to visit again and again. Tentáculos de Pulpo at Chotto Matte 09. Chotto Matte London, UK
Nikkei cuisine sees the coming together of Japanese and Peruvian cooking, and anyone who has ever dined at Chotto Matte will know just how perfect this culinary marriage is. Order from the sharing menu for a joyful introduction – the warm beef tataki is a favourite. Glitzy interiors at one of Gaucho’s London restaurants 10. Gaucho London, UK
Everything about Gaucho says authentic Argentina. This group, which has 12 restaurants in London and four outside, is famous for the best quality steak in the world. Reared on hand-selected farms that Gaucho have worked with for years, premium Black Angus free-range cattle graze on 17 types of grass in the Pampas provinces. The food is truly Argentinian, but modern and evolving, the wines diverse (the largest selection of Argentinian wines outside of the country) and the service impeccable. The whole lobster with mac ‘n’ cheese at Black Roe 11. Black Roe London, UK
Jordan Sclare is doing remarkable things in Mayfair’s Black Roe. Loosely going by ‘modern Asian’, the menu takes on traditional dishes with a modern twist. Highlights include beef and black bean, slow-braised ox cheek, or the whole lobster filled with mac ‘n’ cheese. 12. 34 Mayfair London, UK
Situated off Grosvenor Square, 34 Mayfair is a beacon of contemporary elegance. Head chef Harvey Ayliffe’s seasonal menu combines the bespoke Parrilla grill and heritage beef sourced from the Scottish lowlands to Japan, as well as seasonal game and fish. Weekend brunch is an indulgent highlight, plus the bar is a must-visit for those serious about their whiskies. If it’s a special occasion, book the private dining space decorated with Tracey Emin’s charcoal drawings and neon artworks. Dig into a steak at Zelman Meats 13. Zelman Meats London, UK
Head to the fifth floor of Harvey Nichols in Knightsbridge for a carnivore’s paradise. Zelman Meats serves a range of cuts (with the option of Halal) by the 100g, so you can eat as much as you like, washed down by something delicious from the cocktail menu or wine list. Filled cornbread buns at Guasacaca 14. Guasacaca London, UK
Venezuelan cuisine looks set for its turn in the foodie spotlight, but if you want to get ahead of the pack, go to Guasacaca. The London street food veterans are responsible for the tastiest arepas in the capital – cornbread buns filled with shredded meats or black beans, topped with avocado sauce. 15. Hovarda London, UK
In both Turkish and Greek, ‘hovarda’ is used as a playful reference to a generous host with a free spirit. You’ll find this Soho restaurant is imbued with this character, both in its luxe first-floor cocktail bar and in the ground-floor restaurant. The interiors are designed by award-winning, Lázaro Rosa-Violán, in a space that features an open kitchen and counter dining that overlooks the open fire grills.
What to eat? With its emphasis on seafood, your best bet at Hovarda is whatever’s come fresh off the fishing boats that day and brought straight from the British coast. Dishes are inspired by the region that surrounds the Aegean Sea, from the starters that feature favourites such as fried squid, taramasalata and a mixed meze platter, to the mains, which lean heavily on Mediterranean-inspired flavours using local produce, such as the kleftiko of slow-roasted Ryeland lamb or the Cornish catch of the day cooked over an open fire.
Don’t forget that old-school mantra: there’s always room for dessert, especially when the choices include lokma – fried doughnuts with thyme honey, walnuts and cinnamon ice cream – and Turkish delight cheesecake. In fact, you’re likely to stay here late whatever you do, as Hovarda regularly hosts guest DJs, and an extensive cocktail menu. All of Mac + Wild’s game is hunted on the Scottish family farm 16. Mac + Wild London, UK
From Scottish street food sensations to an award-winning restaurant brand, Mac & Wild has taken the capital by storm with its two Central London outposts celebrating the very best of Highland produce. Tuck into wild venison and fresh seafood, or sample the Veni-Moo – voted the UK’s best burger back in 2016. The Shed is one of Notting Hill’s most sought-after restaurants 17. The Shed London, UK
If you want passion in your cooking, look no further than the Gladwin brothers’ Notting Hill restaurant, The Shed. Oliver (chef), Richard (manager) and Gregory (farmer) combine to produce a daily menu of sustainable British small plates as well as a ‘loosener’ cocktail, in a relaxed, jovial environment. Mention Etihad Airways when booking for a free glass of champagne at Beast this summer 18. Beast London, UK
Lovers of beef and seafood need to head to Beast in Mayfair. Alongside its in-house dry-aged steaks from the UK, USA, Japan, Spain, Portugal and Australia, you will also find supremely fresh seafood: in fact, it’s the only place in London where you can eat live king crabs from Norway, which are flown in especially for the restaurant. As an added incentive, during July and August guests flying on Etihad Airways can enjoy a welcome glass of champagne – just mention the airline when booking. Buddha Bar in London is a glamorous Asian restaurant in Knightsbridge 19. Buddha Bar London, UK
Fans of minimalism, look elsewhere: Buddha Bar is all about unrestrained opulence. The pan-Asian hotspot fuses Thai, Japanese and Chinese cuisine on its menu, with fresh seafood given a starring role. Glitzy decor, live DJs and a decadent cocktail menu will make it a night to remember. Watch chefs work on the kitchen counters at hit Spanish restaurant Sabor 20. Sabor London, UK
Chef Nieves Barragán and partner in business, José Etura, opened Sabor (“flavour” in Spanish) in Mayfair in 2018 and were awarded a coveted Michelin star in their first year. The three areas – counter, tapas bar and upstairs restaurant – each provide different tastes and experiences of Spanish cuisine. Don’t forget to snap your dinner at this hyped-up raclette restaurant 21. La Vraie Raclette NYC New York City, USA
The first raclette restaurant in the US could well be its best. Raclette – that traditional Alpine dish of melted cheese scraped off the wheel to gooey perfection before landing on your choice of meat or vegetables – is served here to critical acclaim. In just a few years, La Vraie Raclette NYC has become a social media phenomenon and taken its place as an unmissable dining experience for anyone visiting the Big Apple. In a city that boasts more than 24,000 options for dinner, the choice is easy. Fulham Beach is where west London’s chic set come to party in summer 22. Fulham Beach London, UK
London has a lot going for it, but you wouldn’t usually associate it with drinking cocktails while feeling the sand between your toes. Fulham Beach, the capital’s urban sandy hideaway, will change that perception. Situated in south-west London on the banks of the Thames, visitors can revel at this jungle-themed venue, drinking Long Tail Mixer cocktails while making the most of (hopefully) another summer heatwave. Though, British weather being British weather, Fulham Beach has both indoor and outdoor space. The terrace at Madison overlooks St Paul’s Cathedral 23. Madison London, UK
It’s a fact that Londoners love to show off their knowledge when recommending great places to dine out – and when it comes to rooftop bars, Madison is usually top of their list. Locals fill out this buzzy space come rain or shine to enjoy classic British staples and meats cooked to perfection on the kitchen’s Josper grill. Join them for a cocktail and dance off dessert to the sound of live DJs under the gaze of St Paul’s Cathedral and The City’s array of skyscrapers. Share This Story

Desi all the way

India, Bharat, Hindustan: these are same names just used interchangeably. India, having a sub-tropical climate, is a gold mine of spices, vegetables, fruits, and many species of animals. Food has played a pivotal role in the growth of human civilisation. Indian kings were at their highest pinnacle in the early ages and hence their food was very refined. Indian society is very religious, in which food is treated holy. Ayurveda scriptures explain food as nourishment to the soul, and not only to the body. The science of ayurveda also helped Indians to craft well-balanced recipes.
In the 1700s, European empires started spreading their colonies throughout India. British, Dutch, Portuguese and French ruled India, and mainly came here to increase their trade in the highly profitable and rare exotic ingredients, of which spices were a vital product. A lot of Indian food was analysed and taken to England. Chutneys and curries which could be imitated easily, entered the English country and brought flavour, body and robustness to bland European fare. The British officers and staff acquired a taste for mango chutneys, pickles, poppadums, rice and curry preparation, and took them back to their country.
The health industry, over a period, has identified the importance of consumption of turmeric, asafoetida, chillies, garlic, ginger, cinnamon, clove, pepper, mustard, and few more which are regularly used in Indian cuisine.
Other factors that make India cuisine so popular in Europe are as follows:
* India is an agriculturally surplus country which can afford to export the best quality of ingredients.
* Excellent connectivity between India and Europe by sea and air.
* Immigration of people from Indian subcontinent to Europe and have lived in Europe for over three generations.
* Indian cuisine is highly adaptable to any available ingredient.
* India has exported a lot of culinary talent in the last five decades.
Since Indian cuisine entered Europe in the last decade, more Europeans are familiar with regional cuisines of India, moving beyond the usual North Indian and South Indian fare. So, it’s desi all the way!

THE PERFECT WEEKEND AT BÜRGENSTOCK

Good evening everyone! I hope you are all doing well. This time I am greeting you from Bürgenstock in Switzerland – yes, this is the amazing place I visited back in February and since we loved it so much, we decided to come in the summertime as well. This time we stayed at The Palace Hotel , which is located right next to the Bürgenstock Hotel (about which you can red here ).
Krásný večer všem! Doufám, že se máte dobře. Dneska mám pro Vás post z Bürgenstocku ve Švýcarsku, který jsem se rozhodla navštívit již podruhé tento rok. Již jsem tady byla v únoru a rezort jsem si tam zamilovla, že jsme se rozhodli se sem podívat znovu v létě. Tentokrát jsme byli ubytovaní v třetím z celkově čtyř hotelů Bürgenstock, a to v The Palace Hotel . O mém posledním pobytu si můžete přečíst tady .
HOW TO SPEND THE PERFECT WEEKEND AT THE BÜRGENSTOCK RESORT FRIDAY 15:00 – CHECK IN As first, we checked in at The Palace Hotel is one of the hotels which in total make the Bürgenstock Resort . This amazing, historical building is offering 109 rooms and suites with an amazing view on the lake. We got the opportunity to stay in the Executive Room Lake view with a terrace which was perfect in the time we decided to go (in the summer time). We loved having breakfast delivered to the room and enjoy the view just in two. In the Palace Hotel you can also choose from several dining options – in the famous Palace Lounge you can enjoy a drink or two with an amazing view over the lake. Are you not convinced yet? Well, names like Sophia Lauren, Jimmy Carter or Sean Connery fell in love with this place and there’s definitely a reason. If you want to enjoy a full-experience when it comes to dining, make sure to make a reservation at the Ritzcaffier where is served the very best of the best from the fine French cuisine. Every Sunday the restaurant is also hosting a famous brunch which is worth trying as well!
Jako první jsme se ubytovali v již zmiňovaném The Palace Hotel , který je jeden z celkově čtyř hotelů tvořící Bürgenstock Resort . Hotel by již vybudovyný v 19. století a je tak nejhistoričtější budovou celého komplexu. Zařízený je v moderním stylu s nádechem klasiky. My jsme byli ubytovaní v pokoji “Executive Room Lake view” s terasou, který je podle mě skvělý na léto. Oproti modernímu Bürgenstocku má totiž balkony a terasy, které jsou podle mě skvělé na horké letní večery. V hotelu najdete také hotelový bar “Palace Lounge”, který si zamilovali hvězdy jako Sophia Lauren, Jimmy Carter nebo Sean Connery. V hotelu také můžete navštívit luxusní restauaci Ritzcaffier , která se specializuje na přípravu moderních pokrmů z francouzské kuchyně. Ohodnocená byla 2 Michelinskými hvězdami.
15:30 – POOL & SPA TIME As the weather was amazing, as first we decided to hit the famous Hollywood pool which is located inside of the Bürgenstock Hotel. This outside pool is being used since the 50s and many celebrities loved and enjoyed spending time there. The pool is very unique as there is a little room underneath which allows you to look inside of the pool!
Počasí nám opravdu přálo, takže hned potom, co jsme se check-inovali, jsme se vydali k slavnému venkovnímu bazénu “Hollywood Pool”, který funguje již od 50.let. Zvláštní je také tím, že do bazénových okének se dá koukat z místnosti pod bazénem, která kdysi sloužila jako bar – dneska se využívá ale jenom k privátním účelům nebo nejrůznějších eventům.
20:30 – DINNER AT SPICES In the evening we decided to have dinner in the Asian restaurant called Spices – this one is also located inside of the Bürgenstock Hotel. The restaurant has an amazing view on the Lake Lucerne in both inside and outside parts. On the menu you’ll find the very best of best from the Indian, Chinese, Japanese and Thai cousines. I, personally, can recommend their platter of sashimi to take for starter which tastes amazing. As my main course, I took the lobster in a pepper sauce which I can recommend to anybody and everybody who loves fish – the meat was really soft and the sauce made it super-delicious. For my dessert I ordered some coconut ice cream which is my absolute favourite!
Večer jsme se rozhodli se navečeřet v asijské restauraci Spices, která nabízí to nejlepší z nejlepšího z thajské, indické, japonské a čínské kuchyně. Jako předkrm mohu doporučit talíř sashimi, které nejemže bylo nádherně naaranžované, ale také chytnalo opravdu čerstvě. Jako hlavní chod jsem zvolila humra v pepřové omáčce, který jistě potěší kohokoliv, kdo humry miluje. Večeři jsem zavšila domácí kokosovou zmrzlinou, která je moje nejoblíbenější.
SATURDAY 10:00 – IN-ROOM BREAKFAST We started out Saturday by ordering breakfast in the room and ate on our balcony while enjoying the amazing view of the Lake Lucerne. I can highly recommend to try their Eggs Benedict and Waffles which tasted absolutely amazing!
Jaký je nejepší způsob jak začít sobotu? Přece snídaní na pokoj! Není nic lepšího než vyjít na balkon, nasnídat se v županu s tímhle nádherným výhledem. K snídani mohu doporučit například Eggs Benedict nebo jejich domácí wafle!
12:00 – VISIT OF LUCERNE Even though the city of Lucerne is completely on the other side of the lake than the hotel, it’s super easy to reach the city by the boat provided by hotel. The round trip is about 30 CHF per person. The view from the boat offers you a completely different perspective on the lake and on the cities surrounding it. The city itself is unique and definitely worth seeing – so for this plan about 4 hours of your time (30 minutes takes one way with the boat).
Přestože se Lucern nachází na opačné straně jezera, do města se z hotelu dostanete za pouhých 30 minut – a to díky hotelové lodi, kterou se za 30 CHF dostanete do Lucernu a zpátky. Kromě krásného výhledu z lodi se můžete těšit také na malobné městečko, které rozhodně stojí za návštěvu!
18:00 – PICNIC TIME What I find really special about the hotel is their experiences which they try to change up every season. This time they introduced a picnic basket which you can enjoy in their garden at the Hollywood Pool. The picnic basket has a lot of amazing local specialties – like local sausages, bread or cheese. In the basket you’ll also find some salad, mini-appetizers like quinoa or tuna and also some still and sparkling water as well as a small bottle of wine. I think this is something really special and as I never had picnic in my life before, this was something new to try for me!
Na tomto rezortu mi přijde vyjímečné spousta věcí, kromě skvělého jídla, nádherného výhledu, jedinečné architektury, moderního vybavení a milého personálu, také nejrůznější zážitky, které si v hotelu můžete zabookovat. Jeden z nich je například soukromý piknik v zahradě hotelu – jelikož jsem osobně ještě na žádném pikniku nebyla, musela jsem ho tady v Bürgenstocku vyzkoušet. V košíku najdete spoustu lahodných, místních specialit – klobásky, salámy, místní sýr. Kromě místních specialit v něm najdete také míchaný salát a mini-předkrmy jako je tuňák nebo quinoa.
SUNDAY 10:00 – BREAKFAST AND HIKE AROUND THE HOTEL The hotel is not only perfect for a relaxing vacation spent at the pool, but also for a little more active one – the surroundings are perfect for hiking in the beautiful nature. One place definitely worth seeing is the Hammetschwand Elevator which is the highest located elevator in the whole Europe (1,132m above the sea level). There’s also a restaurant nearby the lift which is also worth the visit! Bürgenstock je známý především pro svoje obrovské spa, které přesahuje více než 10,000 m2. Kromě relaxu můžete ale i v okolí hotelu vyrazit na túru – a to třeba k výtahu “Hammetschwand”, který je nejvýše položeným výtahem v Evropě (a to ve výšce 1,132m nad mořem). U výtahu se nachází také restaurace, která určitě za náštěvu. 14:00 – POOL TIME There’s nothing better than spending the time at the pool after a long hike! We had the chance to also use the spa at the Waldhotel which in my opinion is way calmer than the Alpine spa and therefore more relaxing.
Není nic lepšího než po pořádné túře pořádně zrelaxovat. My jsme měli tu možnost využívat i spa od hotelu Waldhotel , které je podle mě mnohem klidnější a tudíž v něm víc zrelaxujete.
16:00 – MIDSUMMER POOL PARTY Is there a better way to end the day than with a party? We got the invite from the lovely hotel team to attend their Midsummer Pool Party , located at the Hollywood Pool with many food and drinks stands, floaties and a lot of fun!
A jak ukončit vydařený víkend? Přece Midsummer Pool Party , která se konala u vyhlášeného Hollywood Poolu. Kromě spousty floaties a zábavy, jste si mohli užít spoustu skvělého jídla a pití s tám nejkrásnějším výhledem!

Best Digital Nomad Hubs In Asia

Select Page Best Digital Nomad Hubs In Asia Pin 0 Shares
Whether you’re an entrepreneur building your company from the ground up or a digital nomad working remotely while traveling the World, Asia is a land of wonders you really need to visit. With endless clear blue water beaches, co-working spaces and conferences focused on the tech industry, Asia is a great place to be. So here’s a list of the best digital nomad hubs in Asia. Chiang Mai, Thailand
Chiang Mai in Northern Thailand is one of the best places for digital nomads in Southeast Asia. Not exactly your typical Asian city Instead of chaos, pollution, and insane traffic, you will find in Chiang Mai a more relaxed vibe and a host of cool places to work from. One of the biggest draws of Chiang Mai is the wide range of amazing Western and Thai food that can be found at markets, food carts, and restaurants for only a few dollars: the perfect fuel for a hardworking digital nomad.
Considering its small population of less than 400,000, it’s incredible to think that there are over ten co-working spaces to choose from such PunSpace , not to mention innumerable cafes with fast Wi-Fi. It pays to mix it up and try out as many places as possible – each will have a unique vibe and a different crowd for you to meet. Canggu, Indonesia
Canggu is a small beachside town in South Bali where local Balinese and Australian and European expats live together in harmony. The Balinese economy depends largely on tourism to keep local businesses running – not to mention the exuberant friendliness of the Balinese people, which makes it a really nice place for anyone looking for a small-town for you digital nomad life.
There will be people working along side you that are experts in their own fields – be that in web design, e-commerce, or photography, all mainly attracted by the amazing cost of living. For 400 USD per month, expect to find yourself living in a fully furnished apartment and an incredible view of the rice fields! WiFi, and private parking. Da Nang, Vietnam
Great for long term travelers and digital nomads, Da Nang offers a good combination of coworking spaces, many workable cafes, and plenty of things to do to keep you busy . A rapidly changing place, Da Nang offers really good internet, and more expats are arriving each day. The laid back beach-city vibe is a real draw for people who aren’t into the high-speed life of Hanoi or Saigon and the inexpensive local foods will keep your belly full on a budget.
Vietnams third largest city, Da Nang is set in the center of the country, right on the sea, it’s home to some of the country’s most beautiful beaches and clean waters. If you wanna get some work done, a good alternative is IoT Coworking Space. And once you’re done with work and want to do some sightseeing, make sure to visit Cau Vang, a pair of giant, weathered stone hands – holding up a gleaming golden bridge Ubud, Indonesia
Located on the tropical island of Bali, this picturesque village is notoriously famous for its rapidly growing start-up scene – Ubud has quickly become a top choice for digital nomads on a budget. Popular with yogis and health food enthusiasts, this little village has blossomed into a hub for entrepreneurs since nomad living in Ubud is extremely easy. Apartments can be found for as little as $300 per month while a humble room in a homestay will only set you back $12 per day including breakfast.
Ubud is also a culturally rich city, with an array of possible experiences you can only find in a tropical island. Take a trip to a morning market that looks like you’ve stepped into an Indiana Jones movie, participate in a Balinese cooking class, walk through the rice fields or attend a fire-breathing Kekak show.
If you’re looking to get some work done grab an artisanal coffee at Seniman and get cracking on those emails. But if you still need an office you can check out great co-working spaces such as The Onion Collective and The Outpost. Koh Phangan, Thailand
Chiang Mai offers everything a digital nomad could wish for, except for one thing: there’s no beach. You’d be crazy not to use the beach as your office for at least some of your time in Thailand – a country famous for its white sandy beaches and turquoise waters – which is why I spent nearly four months working from Koh Phangan in the Gulf of Thailand.
If you look past the buckets of cheap cocktails and parties, you will find a beautiful island with a laid-back vibe that is fast becoming a magnet for digital nomads. The island is quickly learning to cater to its freelancer community, with a growing number of hostels and cafes offering fast Wi-Fi, plus two co-working spaces. But if what you need is a bit of inspiration, then what could be better than a hammock on the beach. Koh Phangan is just a weekend trip away from the amazing islands of Langkawi, an archipelago of 99 islands in the Andaman Sea. Penang, Malaysia
This is one of the best places digital nomads who also have a deep love of good food. Located just south of the Thailand-Malaysian border, Penang Island is a former British colony and multicultural hub. George Town, its charming capital, is packed with history and crumbling colonial architecture.
But the biggest draw of Penang is its culinary diversity. Foodies will be really happy as the range of incredible food is mind-blowing: Indian, Malay, Chinese and Thai cuisines have influenced Penang’s food culture. Quirky cafes are dotted around town offering free wifi and freshly brewed coffee to boost productivity. A nd if you are one of those who really need an office to work, make sure to check out some of the cool co-working spaces in Penang, such as MSOGO or Scoopoint . Phnom Penh, Cambodia
Although more and more Western-style buildings are appearing throughout Cambodia’s capital city, it is still rather underdeveloped compared to other Southeast Asian cities. For this very reason, Phnom Penh holds so much charm and allure. Numerous temples, markets, and the Royal Palace all transport you to the past while new architecture and modern restaurants and cafes seem to be opening daily.
Phnom Penh has come to the forefront for young entrepreneurs in recent years because of its extremely low-income tax rate. Starting a business there could potentially save you thousands of dollars over the years and the cost of living is also very low with an entire apartment costing approximately 400 USD per month. Phnom Penh is also perfect for someone looking for a new job, as modern Cambodia is quite a new country, they are actively seeking skilled expatriates from other countries to come and work. The expat and digital nomad community is thriving, and the possibility for networking is ever present. Tokyo, Japan
Admittedly, living in Japan as a digital nomad isn’t going to be as cheap as going to Thailand, Cambodia or Indonesia, but with careful planning, it is still possible. And if Tokyo always had a reputation for being an expensive city to live in, the good news is: this is just a reputation. If you look closely, a digital nomad dream in Japan is something very possible and here are some tips!
The cheapest, most convenient, and basic go-to option for those who want to stay a couple of months are share house. It also happens to be a really good way to meet locals and fellow travelers, and you won’t be annoyed by paperwork. However, Transportation in Tokyo is not cheap. That makes the choice of your home + base co-working combo very strategic: you basically want to be able to get to work by bicycle every day. And if you still need to fit in the cost of a co-working, there are some really good options like The Hive Jinnan and Yahoo! Lodge (top tip: day passes are free!). Mandalay, Myanmar
Those looking for perfect, always on and high-speed internet shouldn’t consider Mandalay for a few years yet. Those with a little more freedom to choose, however, should consider. The city has much lower rental costs than in Yangon and it is in the heart of some of the most unspoiled territory in Asia.
Since Myanmar has only recently opened up (around 5 years ago), you’ll be among the first long-term visitors to Mandalay which means getting the “real vibe” before it’s overrun by tourists.
