A Guide For…Living In Asia
livinginasia.co is an independent resource for living in Asia. This is not a travel guide with “things to do in x”, though it may inspire you to get on a plane to go live in any one of the profiled cities.
This site will help you find apartments instead of hotels, provide city guides for living in, and list the best places to work if you are running a location independent business.
While there are plenty of expat destination guides, this site is written with digital nomads, location independent entrepreneurs, and long term travellers in mind.
What To Expect
In addition to practical living guides, the site with feature interviews with people who have made the move to Asia, and a news roundup of articles of interest that relate to living in the region.
At the moment the sites focus is on Southeast Asia but it will expand to Japan, Taiwan, and China over time.

My name is James Clark and I first visited Southeast Asia in 2005 on a one month trip to Cambodia, Vietnam, and Thailand. I was hooked the day I arrived and I knew I would be coming back for more exploration.
Every year I came back I would spend a bit longer, to the point where I now spend most of the year here, usually basing myself in one city.
I’m currently living in Ho Chi Minh City and I travel around the region frequently.
