Sri Lanka was ranked second, ahead of Singapore and several other countries, for digital nomads in 2021 by influential French travel and tourism operator Club Med. Thailand was ranked first in the survey.
Club Med said that due to the increase in home working and the farewell to cramped daily commutes and sluggish office factories, the idea of ââchanging home offices for sunshine, lush landscapes and an explosion culture is becoming more and more popular.
This urge to travel while working remotely has led to an increase in digital nomads – people who travel the world while working virtually. This is why Club Med has created an index of the best places and countries in the world to become a digital nomad. This data has been collected and evaluated with the increasing demand for the nomadic lifestyle. He deliberately put beautiful landscapes before the bustle of cities to limit and restrain stress, allowing workers to fully embrace the world – the ethics behind digital nomadism.
In the latest study, Club Med examined the cost of living, safety, average internet speed, the presence of places of nature and well-being, as well as the number of relaxation and adventure activities in each country.
In doing so, he assigned each place a total âdigital nomad score,â which he uses to rank both the best countries and the best areas for remote working.
Describing second-place Sri Lanka, Club Med said: âThe colorful country of Sri Lanka is a nomadic paradise.
âSri Lanka topped our list as the second best country to visit for digital nomads. With a low cost of living and a beautiful backdrop of verdant mountains, coral reefs and powdery sand, it is clear that Sri Lanka offers such a great remote working experience, âhe said.
The country got a total score of 238 out of 320, with average temperatures of 30 Â° C along with plenty of activities and landmarks for visitors, Club Med added.
