Fancy sending out invoices from a beachside location or writing your latest article whilst surrounded by indoor plants and new friends? As workplaces become more flexible and the solopreneur is on the rise, co-working spaces are rapidly popping up around the globe.
These days co-working offices are more than just renting desk space – they also provide opportunities to network and brainstorm with fellow creatives, offer free food and coffee and other services to make your work day easier such as free Wifi, printing and meeting rooms.
As the freelance population grows, remote working is becoming more commonplace, making it easy as pie to combine your work and holiday! A lot of places offer day rates if you’re just breezing through town, but if the idea of temporarily relocating to Bali sounds appealing, there are weekly and monthly rates on offer too.
If the idea of working abroad seems appealing, I’ve rounded up the 10 best co-working spaces around the world!
Hubud – Ubud, Bali
Nestled in the jungle of Ubud is Hubud, Bali’s first co-working space. This heavenly space made from bamboo is filled with creatives working away whilst enjoying fresh heathy meals (there’s an onsite ‘living food lab’). And when you want to take a break there’s yoga classes, surfing and scenic walks through rice paddies in the local area!
RoySpace – Melbourne, Australia
Indoor plant lovers rejoice! RoySpace, located in trendy Fitzroy, is a bright and airy space filled with lush greenery alongside art.
