Digital Nomad Cafes in Ho Chi Minh City

Digital nomads are people who rely on the Internet to earn a living, allowing them to travel around the world without having to worry about limited vacation leaves. Vietnam is becoming one of the top destinations for digital nomads in Southeast Asia and that is for a good reason. The country is known for its vibrant culture, gorgeous natural landscapes, beautiful temples, and delicious food. What’s more, the cost of living in Vietnam is very cheap, making it an ideal base for digital nomads who tend to stay in the country for the long-term before moving on to another destination.
