Working from home sounds like a dream, doesn’t it?
For the most part, setting your own work schedule and having the freedom to work from any location you’d prefer does sound like the ultimate scenario. However, working at home can also be isolating, downright distracting and unproductive.
There’s nothing like a well stocked fridge, Netflix, and the coziness of your bed to take your mind off impending tasks.
It can also get a little lonely too.
In a city like Bangkok, the last place you want to be is holed up in your room. You want to be meeting like-minded people, making friends, opening new doors of opportunity and out amongst the vibe.
Luckily, Bangkok is a global leader in cool co-working spaces.
Whether you want a place to focus on developing an online business, a calm, productive vibe to write your novel, or simply a place to chill and answer emails, Bangkok has a list of spaces as long as your arm to choose from.
So get out of your apartment and head to a co-working space in Bangkok, where you can work productively in the company of other entrepreneurs, ingenues and generally cool people.
Don't know of a co-working space near you? No worries. As usual, I've done the heavy lifting and compiled the 35 best co-working spaces in Thailand’s bustling capital.
