Study Finds The Best Cities To Work While Traveling

A new study by IWG found the best cities for people who embrace the "work from anywhere" lifestyle.

A study by flexible working company IWG found the best cities for people who are embracing the “work from anywhere” lifestyle.

The analysis ranked 25 cities on nine categories, including availability of workspaces, broadband speed, climate, culture, accommodation, food and drink, and transport. The cities were given a score out of 10 for each category.

IWG drew on research based on 1,009 hybrid working office workers from August 2022 by market research firm Mortar.

Here are the top 10 cities for “workcations,” as determined by the study.

  1. Barcelona, Spain
  2. Toronto, Canada
  3. Beijing, China
  4. Milan, Italy
  5. New York, US
  6. Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
  7. Amsterdam, The Netherlands
  8. Paris, France
  9. Jakarta, Indonesia
  10. Lisbon, Portugal

Barcelona was ranked as the top city for digital nomads, scoring highly for its transport system and relatively low cost of living.

The city was ranked seven out of 10 for its broadband speed, but only scored three out of 10 for the availability of flexible workspaces.
