What are the cheapest places to live in the world

 article about cheapest countries for a digital nomad
If you live a lifestyle where you can travel and work at the same time, but your work is not the highest paying one in the world, you might want to know what the cheapest places to live in the world are. Just to find a place that you like, and of course, something that would work for you budget.

Previously we spoke about the most expensive countries and cities in the world to live in, so now it's time to move on to the cheapest places to live in the world, as the most affordable places to live might be the best for a non-high-earning digital nomad.

Portugal, Europe


Obviously it depends on the exact city, but in Portugal you can live for around $1300 (EUR 1150) a month without any problems.

Malta, Europe


The same budget that works in Portugal, also works in Malta. Although with a small difference. The rental prices in Malta are high, so while in Portugal you might get an entire flat for that money and spare enough for food and beer, in Malta you need to share a flat, as a one-bedroom flat in Malta might cost you EUR 600 and more.

Indonesia, Asia


It's a nice country, nice huge country, which isn't too expensive at all. Especially considering that even in Bali, nowadays a pretty touristy place, you can get by for around $1500 easily, but you might also be able to do it for $1000. And a nice town in Bali you should keep in mind is Ubud. Now go an find some good Bali hotel offers.

Vietnam, Asia


A nice place in Vietnam is Da Nang. It's the third-largest city in Vietnam, and you can probably get by there for $800-$1000 easily. That's a place I should be considering myself actually. Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) is another nice place in Vietnam worth considering.

Chiang Mai, Thailand


It's been named one of the top places to live and work as a digital nomad. There's a good community of remote workers, fast Wi-Fi, good weather, and great food. You might need around $800 a month to live there.

Budapest, Hungary


Capital of Hungary should work for you if you have around $1000 - $1300 to spend a month (including rent).

Siem Reap, Cambodia


Located in northwestern Cambodia, most of the hotels there have reliable wifi, and even if you do choose to live in a hotel or hostel instead of renting an apartment, you should be able to get by with $800 easily.

Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica


A surfers town with nice beaches. You need around $1600 a month.

These are just a few places worth considering.
