Bangkok is the best city in the world for a so-called “workation.” At least that’s what Holidu, a website for vacation rentals says. The listing, which had Phuket and Chiang Mai both at number 10, was widely shared in Thai media and touted by the Tourism Authority of Thailand. It even caught the attention of PM Prayut Chan-o-cha who is now thanking citizens and local organisations for making Thailand an attractive place for digital nomads and tourists, especially during the Covid-19 crisis.

What makes Bangkok the best place for a workation are the speed and availability of Wifi connections, the numbers of co-working and public space, affordable monthly accommodation, good prices for food and drink, convenient and affordable transportation, various fascinating attractions, and also the sunny weather. Holidu also added that most people in Bangkok are able to speak English which is good for an investment and a great place for business people to stay.
