There is nothing better than working and traveling at the same time, without limits. Many digital nomads have this kind of lifestyle, which inspires people who work at a office year round, and only two weeks for vacation. Digital Nomads have discovered the best way of living, they can travel and work anywhere there is an internet connection. Africa, America, Asia, even Thailand! Today we are speaking to those of you who have decided to travel to Koh Samui, Thailand. Our tips and advice will surely help you organize your adventure there perfectly.
Koh Samui Accommodations
So, the first thing to consider is the place where you plan to stay during your journey whether it’s a short-term or long-term. While some decide to spend just a few weeks on the Koh Samui island others fall in love with this wonderland from the first sight and decide to spend several years there. There are plenty of Koh Samui properties you can choose from according to your budget.
As Thai travel agencies and real estate industry work professionally you can easily find a cool property per your desires and needs. Those traveling on budget should do a thorough research to find out the most affordable rentals between long-term villas, condos, guesthouses, and private houses.
The price-tags vary from place to place but they are the same depending on the facilities offered by the owners. If you are looking for a long-term apartment to buy then you’d better connect and chat with the most popular Samui real estate agents and agencies for the best replies. They will answer all of your questions and will provide you with the details regarding the conditions, required documentation and the like.
What to Pack?
After solving the biggest issue the next step is packing your things for this trip. First-time travelers often make mistakes when it comes to packing the things for a journey to Koh Samui. Of course, it’s a tropical island with sunny and sandy beaches but that doesn’t solve the issue of what to take with you and what not.
So, because skincare products are too expensive in Thailand it is recommended to take the main skincare products including sun protective creams and lotions with you from your country. Don’t forget about Mosquito-repelling wristbands too.
Secondly, consider the basic clothes and shoes instead of taking your entire wardrobe with you. Cropped pants, t-shirt dress, tropical print-linen dress, raffia sun hat, sleeveless tee, sandals, palm tree flip-flops, maxi dress, line shirt, sunglasses, linen-blend shorts, and a straw hat are the most requested thing to take with you.
Working by the beach
Is anything more fascinating and inspiring than working by the beach? Nomads get to decide their working hours by themselves, which means that they can spend a lot of time on the beach combining their working style with relaxing. Choose the best time of the day for fun activities and work when it’s calmer and more productive for you.
Everyone decides his/her own plan in a special way. This can become your best plan for any vacation to a tropical island. If you are new to the freelancing world then you should organize everything carefully. Try to do your best to work when needed and to travel when it’s possible.
Eating and Working
Although it’s not recommenced to work while eating, freelancers prefer to save time by having their lunch in front of their laptop. When you are in Koh Samui you should know that you are going to taste one of the most delicious cuisines in the world. It’s preferable to enjoy those delicious dishes just in the local restaurants and pubs.
But this doesn’t mean that you can’t take your laptop with you. You can work while eating and spend more time traveling around the island. Walking is more refreshing than eating. You can also spend an enjoyable time with your friends visiting some of the most popular restaurants in Samui.
Activities for Digital Nomads in Koh Samui

While your working hours may be tough you can still find some time to discover the island of Koh Samui and take part in many activities. You can see the most beautiful and interesting attractions, enjoy the luxurious views from the highest points, find some unusual and fascinating water sports and learn a lot about Thai culture by the means of attending some lessons.
Everything that the rest of the population does is available for any digital nomad who has decided to travel like a common tourist. The choice is up to you.
