Top Female-Friendly Expat Destinations!

As female expats and digital nomads, we are primarily alone by choice. We choose to live this extraordinary path of work, travel and adventure, carving out undiscovered roads in countries almost unheard of. It can sometimes feel dangerous and unsafe as we walk alone through breathtaking scenery, yet this is the lifestyle we want.

At Her Expat Life, we have experience as female travellers and as solo female digital nomads. We have a list of our top female-friendly expat destinations where you will be sure to feel safe, welcomed in by the foreign culture, and, of course, have some fun!

1: Bali, Indonesia

Bali has become a top destination for female digital nomads with the recent release of the digital nomad visa, allowing people to live and work there tax-free. Bali's attractive incentives are the co-working and co-living spaces creating a vibrant and diverse community where females can connect with like-minded people.

The beach clubs, cafes, nightlife and the best surfing the world has to offer are a fun antidote to living there, and the endless Balinese cultural activities make Bali a place you could call home!

2: Lisbon, Portugal

Lisbon offers everything that a person seeks while working in a foreign country. Good internet connection, close to nature, curious and delicious food, lovely weather, exciting culture, and cheap rent! Lisbon has shot up through the ranks this year as the hot destination for female nomads, travellers and expats!
