The city is a financial and technology hub but without the overcrowding and soul-crushing traffic. Gurgaon, in northern India, is perfect for young business-minded folk seeking a coliving or coworking lifestyle. The city supports digital nomads leading a low-cost lifestyle and supplies all the good stuff. With just under 1 million people calling it home, you have come to the right place.
With impressive skyscrapers creating a concrete jungle, it is no wonder that there are over 250 Fortune 500 companies that have offices in Gurgaon. With fast Internet, it is easy to do business in this city, in one of the many coworking spaces on offer. Even though big companies like Coco-Cola, Pepsi, and BMW depend on their backup due to unreliable power, water, and public transport, they have found a flow that works for them. This city is on the rise, and improvements to the infrastructure are clear to see.
When it comes to performing arts, venues like the Kingdom of Dreams are a treat for the senses allowing you to experience the culture, cuisine, and performing arts fit for a Sultan. As if temples like Sheetla Mata Mandir, an architectural delight, are not enough, New Delhi is only 19 miles down the road, making the magnificent and jaw-dropping Taj Mahal just a short train ride away.
Just west of the city lays Sultanpur National Park, home to hundreds of bird species if you happen to be looking for a little more nature amidst the concrete jungle. The city also has a significantly developed park system, which is excellent news when you take into account the safeness, lack of crowding, and almost all year round hot weather.
The cost of coliving is low, whether you are an experienced digital nomad or just starting. This city has tons to offer to those wishing to live in India for a few months or even longer. The food, culture, weather, and people are sure to impress you.
