Even though both Ubud and Chiang Mai are some of the most popular digital nomad hot-spots in the world, they're really different.
If you like going out, having an incredibly fast Wi-Fi, don't mind the big-city life and want the locals to speak really good English, Chiang Mai is the place for you.
However, if you're more into healthy living, raw or vegan food, yoga and meditation practices, then Ubud will be a better option.
I think both of them are wonderful places for digital nomads, they're just really different, so everyone needs to choose what they prefer :)
