Canggu is the spot of all things hipster, boho, and chilled out. Popular with travelers who crave a low-key stay, Canggu is becoming the center of all things cool and carefree. Home to a large number of long-term expats, as well as short-term visitors looking to soak up the laid back feeling, this is the place to be if you’re into quirky coffee nooks, beach hangouts, vegan-friendly cafes, boutique yoga shalas, and great waves. Head to Zin Resort and Villas for beautiful accommodation close to the beach, The Slow for luxury contemporary architecture, and Fella Beach Villa for boho home-away-from-home vibes.

Canggu makes this list for its alluring reputation of being a digital nomad haven. It's best to always follow your travel curiosity where it wants to go.

If your idea of a perfect start to the day is a few rips on the Indian Ocean waves between morning yoga poses and afternoon acai bowls, Canggu might be precisely what you’ve been searching for. Easily one of the hippest corners of the Isle of the Gods, it’s fringed with beaches that host several small surf breaks. But beyond the salt spray, there are also boho bars and health retreats to keep you busy. In fact, Canggu is one of the best cities for digital nomads and the perfect destination for solo travelers, which means fair-trade coffee abound. And there’s likely to be loads of laptop warriors keeping the cafés full.

Did the phrase “digital nomad” start in Bali? The jury’s out on that one, but it would make complete sense. One thing is for certain: this small Indonesian island has a massive population of expat workers. Canggu is a health nut’s dream, with yoga, surfing, vegan food, and fresh fruits. I won’t lie and say that it’s authentically Indonesian, but it’s definitely comfortable and fun, with a sturdy community vibe. It appears on 99.999% of nomad destination lists, but feels wrong to leave off the docket. Cost of living: $1,317 USD per month WiFi: 20 mbps H/T: NomadList
