Remote, the leader in building, managing, and supporting globally distributed workforces, today released the definitive list of the 100 top global destinations for remote work, with Varanasi ranking #118. Based on an in-depth analysis of factors spanning quality of life, safety, internet infrastructure, economics, travel and more, the list leverages the latest data to guide digital nomads and other remote professionals in making informed decisions that align with their personal preferences and professional goals.

Remote originally published the Best Destinations for Remote Work in 2021, when distributed work was still relatively novel and travel restrictions remained in place in some countries. Today, as the concept of remote work transitions from a necessity to a lifestyle choice for many, the significance of selecting the right destination has never been more critical. Remote updated its list with new factors reflecting this reality, including inflation and availability of a digital nomad visa, which is now offered by more than 50 countries. This also marks India’s first appearance on the list, reflecting the nation’s growing appeal to remote workers for its cultural richness, affordability, and openness.
