Everything flows, and Remote Year Panta Rhei is for those who find the beauty in change. Embrace the contrasts of Asian culture, from mopeds flying past ancient temples to traditional dishes ordered on Ipads. No two days will look the same. Let go of your expectations, and join the flow that connects us all.
Chiang Mai, Thailand
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Ride Uber Motos around Hanoi, contrast your digital life to 2000 years of Chiang Mai history, discover Kyoto's simple elegance, and never taste the same meal twice in Kuala Lumpur.
Eat pho on tiny stools, count how often you hear "Same, Same, but different" in Chaing Mai, order your meal on Ipads in Kyoto, and embrace the collision of cultures in Kuala Lumpur.
This Thai expression will be your go-to phrase throughout Asia. Everything has a common thread, but you'll never experience the same moment twice. Embrace the chaos where East meets West and Old meets New.
It's only been two days and I'm already in love with Asia and Hanoi. I'm digging the chaos, the humidity, the plastic chair dining establishments, the chilies so hot they make you cry, the daily juices and smoothies, the cheap massages, the random tropical rainstorms, the 23,000-1 exchange rate, the lightning storms as you sleep, and the fact that crossing the road is a near death experience.
"From the countless night markets and street food stalls, to the fascinating and creative ladyboy cabaret shows, to the bajillion temples scattered throughout the city and the surrounding hills, there is a ton of stuff to discover."
"I was told that Kyoto had Savannah/Charleston vibes and I totally didn’t believe it. I was completely wrong. (...) It’s a biking town with little streets, little buildings, little cafes, and a river winding along the side. There are crosswalks and traffic laws. It is littered with bistros and parks and temples, and surprisingly also high end fashion. "
"Our city managers explained this well our first week in KL – when you say culture, in KL this means FOOD. Jalan Alor is a road home to the coolest street food night market, which I lovingly call ‘food street.’ Here the food is ready to eat, cheap ($2 ish for a meal), and even though you might not know 100% what it is, it’s a ton of fun. The place becomes alive at night and stays open till who knows when, I’m in bed by then anyway #grandmastatus."
Remote Year has teams in each city who plan unique events so you can experience each destination on your itinerary like a local.
Remote Year staff members traveling with groups organize gatherings twice a month to make announcements and allow participants to ask questions and share ideas.
Experience a new lifestyle every month as you not only change countries, but also your daily routine when you wake up and head to work.
Be inspired by your surroundings and work from some of the coolest coworking spaces around the world.
We believe in giving back to the communities in which we live. From volunteering at food banks in Portugal to helping refugees in Serbia, Remote Year partners with local charities and sustainable causes to do so.
Your Remote Year community may start as a group of strangers, but soon, there's nowhere in the world you'd rather be.
Want to dive deeper into each destination? Great! Want to get away? No problem! Our team is available to help and assist you in booking side trips outside of your itinerary.
"Sure, I could travel abroad by myself for cheaper than Remote Year, but the value of the friendships I have made in Remote Year and the connections I have made through the Remote Year network at large enrich my experience in the moment, and will continue to do so for years to come. I wouldn’t have it any other way."
"My Remote Year journey and my loving new family taught me how to take care of myself; how to be my own star player and biggest fan. They taught me to love myself; to trust myself and my talents. They helped build my self-esteem. They fortified the confidence, peace and strength within me and in others. I couldn’t have asked for a better year."
"Remote Year is a wily gang of people from all over the world, but despite our differences, they are among the most open minded and good natured people I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing. It’s certainly a huge part of what makes Remote Year so fun and worth it relative to organizing your own travel around the world, which anyone in theory could do."
