The No. 1 city in the world to travel and work remotely is in the US—and it isn’t New York or LA

Americans don’t need to worry about getting a passport if they want to take an amazing working vacation in the number one city in the world.

Kansas City, Missouri, has been recently crowned as such by Icelandair in their analysis of prime locations for travelers who wish to spend their PTO days wisely. With this destination, visitors can get the most out of their work hours and still have plenty of time for exploration after-hours!

Kansas City is a vibrant destination renowned for its delectable barbecue, thriving jazz culture and impressive number of fountains that outnumber even those found in the Eternal City of Rome.

The city is full of popular attractions including The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, Kauffman Stadium, Worlds of Fun and a hustling downtown area.

From its captivating music to its delicious food and abundance of activities, Kansas City offers an unforgettable experience for visitors from around the world.

The city has emerged as the number one destination among 115 global cities, which were carefully selected based on their importance in the tourism sector and the availability of leisurely travel choices.

Its success is attributed to its ability to provide a unique blend of attractions for visitors from all over the world who are seeking an unforgettable experience that can be savoured at a relaxed pace.

Apart from its tourist attractions, Icelandair ranking takes into account a variety of factors such as the quality of life including cost of living, safety and availability of health care services; it’s ease in working there; environmental aspects like climate index, noise pollution, light pollution and air quality as well as data from the United Nations’ World Happiness Report.

Here are the top 10 best global cities to take a working vacation, according to Icelandair.

  1. Kansas City, United States
  2. Vienna, Austria
  3. Wellington, New Zealand
  4. Copenhagen, Denmark
  5. Edinburgh, United Kingdom
  6. Victoria, Canada
  7. Perth, Australia
  8. Frankfurt, Germany
  9. Brisbane, Australia
  10. Helsinki, Finland
Travelers may be astonished to discover that big metropolises such as New York City and Los Angeles – places which are normally associated with being the most visited – don’t actually make it onto the list of most popular cities for sightseein.

That’s because these metros “aren’t always best when you’re looking to take a step away from the busy hustle of a usual working day,” says Gisli S. Brynjolfsson, director or global marketing at Icelandair.

Slow travel is an increasingly popular concept that emphasizes forging meaningful connections with the local inhabitants, businesses, culture and cuisine.

It also calls for leaving places in a manner where they may be explored by other travelers in the future as well. According to a spokesman of this budding trend, it is all about savoring experiences more than simply ticking boxes off your list of must-sees and -dos.

Slow travel is an attractive option for individuals planning a working vacation, as it gives them the opportunity to explore their destination at a more leisurely pace and for an extended period of time. It also appeals to those traveling solo, allowing them the flexibility to go at their own pace and take in everything that the area has to offer.

According to Brynjolfsson, this approach encourages people to be mindful of their time away from home and savour each moment they spend in a new place.

While remote work has enabled people to take working vacations more easily than ever before, unfortunately many of those who go away come back feeling even more burned out and exhausted than when they first departed.

The pressures of having to work while on vacation, combined with the lack of a physical change in scenery or atmosphere, can leave individuals feeling drained and overwhelmed instead of recharged and refreshed.

Interestingly, a majority of Americans who took a working vacation during the past year did not deem them to be ‘genuine’ vacations.

Furthermore, according to Expedia’s latest Vacation Deprivation study, an overwhelming 72% of individuals who worked through their holiday felt more exhausted than ever before.

The Icelandair report advises travelers to strive for equilibrium by engaging with the natural environment, keeping physically active and exercising mindfulness while away.

To ensure you’re not overworking on days when you need to be productive, take short intervals away from devices and find someone who can help you practice self-discipline in regards to taking necessary breaks.

Finally, even though these cities have the infrastructure for remote work, it is important to take some time away from your laptop and phone during your travels.

Take a break from emails and other online tasks by deleting them altogether, commit to practicing proactive restorative activities that will help you relax, and make sure to fully immerse yourself in exploring the new destination that you are visiting.
