Vietnam leads the trend in development, attracting the “digital nomad” community


The cities of Da Nang, Hanoi, and Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam are among the fastest-growing hubs for digital nomads, according to Nomad List.

“Digital nomadism” is a new travel trend that is capturing the attention of young people who favor a remote work style combined with travel. Recently, experts from Nomad List have announced a ranking of the fastest-growing digital nomad hotspots by analyzing 300,000 registrations in their database over the past two years.

“Digital nomad” is a term for those who have a flexible working environment, only needing to maintain a digital connection, combining remote work with travel.

Da Nang, a coastal city in Vietnam, has been ranked second on the list of fastest-growing cities in 2023 with a growth rate of 109%, according to Nomad List, the largest community database for the digital nomad community worldwide. 

The city is known for its livability, with free Wi-Fi services available in central areas that offer fast internet speeds and beautiful scenery with clean air. The monthly cost of living for a remote worker in Da Nang is approximately 942 USD (equivalent to 23 million VND).

Da Nang ranks 2nd in the list of the fastest-growing digital nomad destinations in the world.

In the Nomad List published, the capital Hanoi ranks seventh with a growth of 58%, and Ho Chi Minh City is in ninth place with 55%.

The capital Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City are the two largest cities in Vietnam offering free Wi-Fi services in public places, high safety index, friendly and hospitable locals, and reasonable living costs.

Although Vietnam has not yet launched a visa program specifically for digital nomads, citizens of nearly 200 countries can easily apply for an electronic visa (e-visa) and stay in Vietnam for 90 days.

Moreover, Tokyo (Japan) ranks first on the list of the fastest-growing digital nomad hotspots with a growth of 246% this year.

Additionally, Seoul (South Korea) is in third place, followed by Kuala Lumpur and Penang of Malaysia, which are in fourth and fifth places, respectively.

In Southeast Asia, only Thailand, Indonesia, and Malaysia currently offer special visa programs for tourists who also work remotely, with certain requirements.
