The thought of moving abroad can either be daunting or exciting but often both at the same time. If you’re choosing to move abroad as a freelancer, then you possibly have the pick of them all. However if you\re moving with your own business and you’re looking to employ staff and grow your business, you may have to choose cities that are best suited to your needs. There are lots of Asian cities that are brilliant for both, from the bright lights of Tokyo to the immense skyline of Hong Kong, there are cities that would be perfect for someone who is wanting to move away and start a new chapter. There is of course also a perfect food scene, and as we all can appreciate, Asian cuisine is delicious! So let’s explore together what Asian cities are best for 2020!


Hong Kong
Hong Kong is a brilliant city for business. It’s thriving, there are plenty of business already exist and the economy is very good. Although its culture is incredibly eastern, you can appreciate that the level of tourism in the city allows a little for foreigners to settle and they are friendly people who will be sure to welcome you to their city and speak of their home with pride. Hong Kong has brilliant food, from noodles to dim sum, some of the most famous dishes are right here in the city and of course it boasts a magnificent futuristic skyline, with bars, great nightlife and a booming economy. Hong Kong’s culture is a mix of traditional Han Cantonese ethnic culture and western colours, but they are too influenced by the Chinese. For property in the city, you can find places to rent or to buy, you could find a home that is looking for a resale hdb and there are so many properties in the city to choose from, you will be spoilt for choice!

Chiang Mai, Thailand
Chiang Mai has recently become the hub for solo travellers and digital nomads. With cafes and areas specially designed for these types of people, if you are a  solo traveller or wanting to work for yourself on the road, then this could be the city of choice. It is a friendly, vibrant and plenty of things to do. It may not be as glamorous as the big cities of Japan but it does certainly have charm and it is cheap which makes it a fabulous pick. The outskirts of the city are beautiful, it’s mountainous and deep within nature. It’s also home to hundreds of elaborate Buddhist temples, which make exploring incredibly exciting. You can see the famous 14th-century Wat Phra Singh and 15th-century Wat Chedi Luang, which is perfect for weekend trips. Renting a house in the city doesn’t have to be expensive iethe and often homes in Asia are better equipped it ha shared pool or gym and much cheaper than the cities in Europe, with milder weather, sometimes tropical, but overall a very safe and happy city that is perfect for solo travellers (male or female).


Kuala Lumpur
This magnificent city is the capital of Malaysia and it encapsulates tradition with modern culture and it is incredibly fabulous. With the epic 451m-tall Petronas Twin Towers, a pair of glass-and-steel-clad skyscrapers, you can look out onto these buildings from almost any point in the city, they dominate the city’s skyline and look incredibly beautiful at night. This city has a great night life and no matter the time of day, you will never feel alone! It can be an expensive city for someone who is travelling solo but as with any country you visit, things can be easily done on a budget. Kuala Lumpur has really been up and coming when it comes to business in the city and its economy is constantly growing. Their business district is booming, and you will find plenty of investors here in Malaysia. These cities are leading the way with modern life, they eat well, work happily and play hard. The Batu caves are magical for someone who wants to see a bit of the city and Bukit Bintang is the famous place in the city to shop, where there are endless malls and markets and you can find just about anything you need. Food and transport in the city is cheaper than other Asian cities but you can easily get around on a bicycle like so many asian countries choose to do.

Hanoi, Vietnam
Vietnam may have its struggles with its economy and recent news items highlighting some of the poor working conditions in the city, but there is also another side to Vietnam and it can be an incredibly interesting one. It is incredibly rich in culture and just like other cities mentioned, it is home to some magnificent temples. Some of which include Bach Ma, honoring a legendary horse, plus Đồng Xuân Market which is perfect for delicious street food and produce. Hanoi is a huge city, not dissimilar to the others mentioned and it is constantly growing. It may not have the huge skyscrapers of Hong Kong but it is a much more inexpensive city on the whole and you can easily rent an apartment in the city for way under what you would pay in the west and the amenities are just as good and the views of course, are spectacular. On the whole, Vietnam is overall very safe and there are very few crimes or issues with tourists or travellers. Perhaps travel with a friend to Vietnam if you’re more concerned as it is a little smaller and there may be less to explore on your own as time goes but the surrounding areas are stunning and there are always plenty of hikes and trails to look at doing, see the magical waterfalls, the forests that boast plenty of luscious wildlife and then return for some traditional Vietnamese food.

The options for Asian travel are endless, for its value and what it can offer, it really is priceless.
