Looking to unplug from the corporate office world and live the life of a digital nomad? New Lombok properties from Invest Islands might be the answer you’re looking for.
Have you noticed you’re getting invited to a lot of farewell parties at the moment? Perhaps you’ve deemed your daily commute a little less crowded and the lines for afterword drinks a little shorter? You’d have to live under a rock not to have noticed how many professionals have left Hong Kong recently. According to Asia Nikkei, the population of “Asia’s World City” fell by 116,000 residents between 2020 and 2021, and the exodus continues in 2022, so there’s no harm in researching possible alternatives.
If you’ve become accustomed to remote working and don’t mind replacing your commute with killer surf breaks, one of those alternatives might be Lombok. With its lush green interiors, pristine beaches, and proximity to Bali, Lombok property continues to seduce would-be remote workers and investors, especially after the Indonesian government announced a new five-year tax-free visa and another for second home owners.
All you need to do is find suitable digs and Invest Islands has two worth a second look.
