What are the Best Coworking Spaces in Chiang Mai? A Review

If you are a Digital Nomad you likely know that over the last few years Chiang Mai has become a “number one” spot in Asia (and probably the World) as an online entrepreneur hotspot. As a result, both Thai and foreign business owners have started to provide some first-rate co-working places and venues for Digital Nomads to work from while in Chiang Mai.

Initial disclaimer: If you are an online entrepreneur you may understand the importance of SEO and for this reason, the title of this post is: “Best Coworking Spaces in Chiang Mai? A Review.”  This is a search term that could be used but the reality is, asking “what is the best” is as pointless as asking “how long is a piece of string.” There is no accurate answer to this question because each establishment has pros and cons. Those variables depend upon each individual’s desires and requirements. So… there are no reviews. What one wants from a co-working space might be different from another’s needs. Rather, we list the places and give you the locations, pricing, website links and a few photos. You decide.

This article focuses on the places that have set up as coworking spaces in Chiang Mai.  There are also hundreds of cafes that provide free or inexpensive internet that you can work from.

About PunSpace Co-working

About Coworking Cafe Chiang Mai

While not strictly a coworking space, it is included because it is a favorite of long-timers in Chiang Mai who want to get away from other nomads and work in peace and quiet. Located along the Mae Ping River, Coworking Cafe is beautiful, peaceful and quiet. The food is average, as is the coffee, yet there is something nice about working outside, listening to the birds and watching people carry out their lives along the river. There is also an air-conditioned inside room.

The Coworking Cafe caters mostly to local Thai people but the staff speaks enough English for you to be able to get what you need. And, being an out of the way non-nomad oriented venue, if you find other Westerners there, the chances are that their wisdom of “Thailand facts” will be worth the conversation. There’s no need to impress them with what you do, as not many people outside of the Digital Nomad community give a moment’s thought to being a nomad.

Amenities

Cafe, dartboard, use of a fax machine, inside room with AC, outside tables with a view of nature and the river. If you have the time, Kayaks can be rented for use on the water.

Costs:

Free WiFi with any purchase of a beverage or food.
