Digital nomads thrive in Bali for many reasons – incredible scenery, cheap accommodation, amazing food and the never-ending options for coworking spaces.
A place where your side-hustle or full-time job can develop and grow, nomads from every background and profession gather together in peaceful cafes and office-type spaces to grind, bounce their ideas off their peers and have a real work setting in paradise.
At the heart of the island, Ubud isn’t only attractive for its yoga, temples and spiritual vibe – the town also lures in entrepreneurs, business owners and freelancers from around the world to their cosy cafes with free Wi-Fi and tasty snacks.
