Recommended Trip Length: 3-9 months

Bali

Surfing, diving, beaches, volcanic mountains, jungles, beautiful temples – in short, paradise. Bali has some of the most iconic island scenery in the world, and backs it up with everything from solid nightlife and restaurants to forested retreats that help to escape the hustle and bustle. If that weren’t enough, the locals are known to be some of the friendliest and most colorful personalities anywhere, tempting anyone to stay for longer than they intended. Not that long ago, Bali was primarily reliant on agriculture for survival. Now, tourism has largely replaced agriculture as the main source of income for the Balinese.

Working Travelers say: “it was everything I hoped for and more.”

Chiang Mai

Perched in the mountainous northern region of Thailand, Chiang Mai is the northern capital of the country and maintains a decidedly laid-back atmosphere compared to the wildness of the southern cities. Plan on visiting plenty of temples, as monasteries and stupas abound in the historic city center. Drive outside of the city to experience the green countryside of northern Thailand, or hike up to one of the many waterfalls or hot springs in the region. Despite it’s calm demeanor, Chiang Mai is positioned to grow into a major player in industries both local and foreign.

Working Travelers say, “Cool to explore northern Thailand and connect with other nomads. Loved the night markets.”

Belgrade

A mixture of eastern and western influences, Belgrade is one of the most up and coming cities in all of Europe. Hapsburg and Ottoman architecture sit alongside each other with the storied Danube flowing in between. A nightlife scene to rival any of Western Europe’s, Belgrade can also provide a quiet afternoon in one of the elaborate coffeehouses along Knez Mihailova. Its strategic position has long made Belgrade a center of trade and commerce and has evolved into one of the financial centers of Eastern Europe.

Working Travelers say, “Belgrade had western amenities, but an eastern bloc vibe to go along with them. It’s a city with a remarkable amount of soul, and allowed us to pad our bank accounts a bit thanks to the cheaper cost of living.”

Lisbon

With cobblestone walkways and ancient ruins covering Lisbon’s trademark seven hills, your camera arm will be busy while here. A foodie’s paradise, Lisbon is also famous for its rowdy and vivacious nightlife scene – check out Bairro Alto of an evening. Snap some photos from the famous miradouros (terrace viewpoints) and enjoy wandering the alleys and walk-able streets. A historic port and trading center, Lisbon is still one of Europe’s wealthiest and most impactful economic influences. Still the country’s chief seaport, the city has grown rapidly recently and is a hub for the media, technology, finance, and manufacturing industries.

Working Travelers say, “It is a great city and I could have definitely stayed a few weeks more.”

Barcelona

The second largest city in Spain, Barcelona is the tourist capital of the country and also the largest city on the entire Mediterranean. Top rate tapas, cheap high-quality wine, clubs open past sunrise – the capital of the Catalonia region of Spain is a worldwide nightlife capital for good reason. Wander down vivacious Las Ramblas over to Sagrada Familia – Gaudi’s famous cathedral; Barcelona has something for everyone’s taste. One of the richest regions in the European Union, Barcelona is a hub of trade, education, entertainment, fashion, and media.

Working Travelers say, “Barcelona has so much to offer. Rent a bike while you are there, it’s a great way to experience the city.”
