Select the right location

This summer, I decided to experiment with the concept of "workation"
= working / vacation.

The concept: work from my laptop while living in a Paradisiac location.

Location? After considering different options (Thailand, Philippines, etc), I went for Bali.

Why? Cheap, many activities, and good Internet (essential for me). Prior to my trip, I read this article explaining how to get Internet on my iPhone
It worked really well even in the remote Gili islands.



I love the experiment.

My productivity increased because I was laser-focus during the day (work 6h with no interruption), and all my chores were taken care of (laundry, food, etc) for half the price than back home.

Plus prices were so low, I could spend my free time on fun & relaxing activities like kitesurf, massage (7$/h), diving, etc

Highly recommend you to give it a try

PS: I found a group of people doing something similar but for one-month and in a more 'organized' way ProjectGetaway
