Not New York Or LA, But The No. 1 City In The World For Travelling And Working Remotely Is In The US

The top global city is accessible to Americans without a passport for business travel.

As per a recent study by Icelandair, Kansas Place, Missouri, is the finest city on earth to work throughout the day and enjoy after hours without the use of up much of the PTO time.

The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, Kauffman Stadium, Worlds of Fun, and a lively downtown can all be found in Kansas City, which is famed for its barbeque, and jazz scene, and for featuring more fountains than Rome. It triumphs over 115 international cities that were picked for the ranking based on their popularity in the tourism sector and accessibility to “slow” travel choices.

Aside from popular tourist destinations, the Icelandair ranking takes into account factors such as cost of livelihood, security, and access to medical care, as well as considerations that show how convenient it is to operate there (internet speed, normal work hours, commuting time), external factors (weather indicator, pollutions, quality of air), and information from the UN’s World Happiness Report.

The fact that conventional huge cities like New York as well as Los Angeles aren’t at the top of the chart may astonish tourists. Gisli S. Brynjolfsson, director of worldwide marketing at Icelandair, explains that it’s because such metros “aren’t necessarily best when you’re wanting to start moving away from the frenetic rush of a typical working day.”

People who are taking business holidays, who are more interested in traveling alone and staying longer at their desired location, find slow travel to be particularly appealing.

While working remotely makes it simpler than ever to have a working holiday, many people find that after taking these “breaks,” they are more exhausted than before. As per Expedia’s most recent Vacation Deprivation research of 14,500 working professionals in 16 countries, almost 61 percent of Americans who had working vacations in the previous year didn’t even consider them to be “real” vacations. In addition, 72% of those who worked on their holiday said they were more exhausted than ever.

The Icelandair study suggests that vacationers find balance by getting in touch with nature, being active, and engaging in relaxation techniques. Find an accountability partner, such as a remote coworker or a travel companion, who can assist you in prioritizing your rest on the days you’re continuing to work and taking short breaks from your equipment.

Last but not least, although these places have the facilities for working remotely, be sure to spend a portion of your trip logged off. Delete emails, engage in proactive recovery, and get acquainted with your new location, as reported by CNBC.
