I’m really excited to interview Sally Bunnell of Navi Savi about Copenhagen, Denmark. Sally’s tips for the best things to do in Copenhagen are awesome because she moved to Copenhagen while working a remote job and feels that the city is the perfect balance between her small-town roots, Scandinavian heritage, and the big city life of New York City.

Getting around Copenhagen

The local airport is Copenhagen Airport (CPH), which is about a twenty-minute drive to the city.

Sally says that, if you’re staying downtown, there’s no need to rent a car. For the best offers, visit Avis, Budget, or Hertz.

Uber and Lyft are excellent ways to get around.
