When it comes to coworking spaces, the absolute must-haves are: a reliable and speedy Wi-Fi, shared workspaces, printing and copying facilities, and private event spaces. And there are the nice-to-haves: a lively, entrepreneurial atmosphere, vibrant events calendar (meetups, pitch nights, workshops, networking sessions, movie nights – bring ’em on!), on-site cafes, gorgeous indoor/outdoor work spaces…the list goes on.
We don’t all need a workspace with plenty of nice-to-haves, but to keep the work flow smooth and seamless, we draw the line at work spaces that don’t hit the mark when it comes to delivering on the essentials. If you’re on the same page, check out our selection of trusty coworking spaces in Thailand below:

Compact, conveniently located and quiet are words that best describe Mana. There are only eight tables here, so digital nomads on the hunt for a work spot will need to arrive early to snag a seat. It’s a worthwhile making the effort to be an early bird – particularly if you’re a creative or techie who needs absolute peace and quiet to get your work done, as Mana enforces a no-noise policy in the workspace.
It scores well on other aspects too – the staff are friendly and attentive, Skype rooms can be booked at an affordable rate, and a cosy cafe is set in a separate area at the back of the coworking space – which means that coffees and baked goodies are easily within reach when the munchies hit.
