12 Cheapest Places to Live in the World

#1 - Malaysia

You have a few great options for where to live in Malaysia. The most popular places for digital nomads to stay are Kuala Lumpur and Penang.

#2 - Vietnam

Digital nomads and ex-pats have increasingly made Vietnam their home base in the last five years. Vietnam is small enough that you can travel around and see the country in smaller chunks.

#3 - Thailand

Thailand is one of the cheapest places to live and a fantastic place to make your base. Especially if you’re looking to escape winters in most countries.

#4 - Indonesia

When most people think of the words “digital nomad,” they first think of someone sitting on their laptop at a local internetwork hub cafe in Bali, Indonesia.

#5 - Philippines

Manila and Davao City are perfect if you’re looking for an ideal bigger city. Cebu and Palawan are suitable for those looking for a more island vibe, palm trees, a fresh breeze, and a simple way of living.

#6 - Colombia

Over the last few years, Colombia has been slowly establishing itself as an up-and-coming major tourist destination.

#7 - Mexico

Many digital nomads and ex-pats are scattered all over Mexico, most are located in the south of Mexico, but many also live in the capital Mexico City.

#8 - Chile

Chile is underrated not only as a country but as a place for expats and nomads to live.

#9 - Bulgaria

It’s not one of those countries you don’t often hear about when it comes to travel or digital nomads located there, but there’s something special about Bulgaria.

#10 - Croatia

Croatia is one of the most expensive countries on this list; it would be hard to live here with a budget under $2,000 monthly, including everything.

#11 - Portugal

Portugal is one of the cheapest countries to live in Europe. In the last few years, Portugal has become a digital nomad hotspot.

#12 - Greece

Despite being the most expensive in this list of cheapest places to live, Greece is still relatively inexpensive compared to many European countries.
