Why I Started Chai Nomad?

When I moved to India, I naturally had to solve a lot of problems to continue my online work and establish a home here.

Then as I chatted with friends, they were asking me a lot of questions:

  • How fast is the internet over there?
  • What’s the food like?
  • How much do you pay for rent?

I’ve traveled to super cool places like:

  • The French colonial city of Pondicherry
  • The experimental town of Auroville
  • The up-and-coming digital nomad hub of Bangalore
  • The beach city of Chennai
  • The breathtaking Taj Mahal and Agra Fort
  • The erotic almost-forgotten temples of Khajuraho
  • The iconic Ganges River and burning ghats in Varanasi
  • The peaceful idyllic backwaters of Kerala

If you’re looking to have an epic trip in India, I hope you can find some practical information and inspiration from this site.
