Cambodia & Hua Hin — A perfect working Holiday!
Cambodia is a southeast Asian nation located in the southern portion of the Indochina peninsula. It is 181,035 square kilometers in area, bordered by Thailand to the northwest, Laos to the northeast, Vietnam to the east and the Gulf of Thailand to the southwest. The official language is Khmer. Cham, English, and French are the other spoken languages.
Cambodia has well shaken off its shackles as a stop only for wearied backpackers on the southeast travel scene. Instead, it is truly gaining a reputation as a region’s go-to destination for digital nomads. So, what works so well for Cambodia?
The country’s rapidly developing capital, constantly improving amenities and infrastructure, along with low rent and cost of living, make it a prime place for remote workers to strike a perfect work-life balance.
On the weather front, Cambodia has a tropical climate all year round, with a rainy season from May to mid-November and a dry season from November to April.
Hua Hin is a seaside resort on the Gulf of Thailand, in the southern Thai province of Prachuap Khiri Khan. Once a quiet fishing village, it grew into a fashionable escape for residents of Bangkok after The 1920s, when the Thai Royal family, built summer palaces here. Hua Hin Beach, popular for kite surfing and other water sports, is the main stretch of sand, lined with high-end hotels and seafood shacks.
There is an ever-increasing expat population in Hua Hin. It is said that there are from 3000 to 5000 expats are living here. This is what has made this sleepy little fishing village a much busier place. While still mainly a tourist resort, there is a more and more international flavor to Hua Hin and makes living interesting here. It’s a great place has everything you need on a smaller scale.
The main draw for Hua Hin is the beautiful beaches, the ease of getting here, how quiet and uncrowded it is, and the laid-back vibes. Add in the overall fast Wi-Fi, quality low-cost condos, taxi, golf courses, Tennis courts and a lot of what you may love about Thailand, cheap massages, pools and you have got a perfect destination to go on a mini-retirement or live there as an expat/ digital
nomad. There are coworking spaces like Gopro. Few cafes that are laptop friendly like Coffeelism and the Truesphere café in the Bluport Mall.
Hua Hin is turning up to be the sleeper hit destination of the year. It has a beach. The air quality is better than most Thailand destinations. Travel is a bit pricier but you can get around on motorbikes here for short distances as traffic is less than larger cities. There are two large malls with everything
you need from movie theatres, gourmet market and plenty of massage shops.
