Thailand is one of the biggest digital nomad hubs in the world. Every year, more and more people visit it to travel inside the country, live there and work remotely. But what we hear comes mostly from nomads themselves. How do the Thai locals perceive digital nomads?
I talked with two local and influential people in the Thai startup scene and who are in touch with these digital nomads. Amarit Charoenpan is the co-founder of Hubba, one of the main co-working spaces in Bangkok, but also a big promoter of the ASEAN startup community. Nati Sang is founder of Makerspace Thailand, a space for hardware makers in Chiang Mai.
Together they shared their thoughts on misconceptions of digital nomad movement, the legal situation, rampant sex tourism and what the future of digital nomad movement could and should be.
I upload a short video clip from what I’ve filmed on my YouTube channel, and it will show you a glimpse of this documentary. I hope you enjoy it and let me know what you think by tweeting me at @youjindo :D
