Should you Move to Chiang Mai Update 2019We have lived in Chiang Mai on and off for 5 years and absolutely love it. There are a few quirks like a terrible smokey season where the air is unhealthy from February to mid April. It was particularly bad this year and topped the chart for most dangerous city in the world many times.
My hobby has become street photography in Chiang Mai. Here is an example below. It is a great place to catch local characters, tourists and some cool old buildings.

I am thinking about dropping everything and going off around the world. I work online mostly and recon as long as I have a decent internet connection, I should be able to do it.
There are these guys calling themselves digital nomads and living in places like Chiang Mai in Thailand semi long term. There are plenty of other hotspots for these guys in Indonesia, Vietnam and outside of Asia.
The more I read up on this the more I think I want to do it. Especially with the January to March grey skies of the UK coming up. On the other hand there is the dangerous smokey season in Chiang Mai at this time. Hmmm, we shall see.
