For the independent or remote developer, Thailand can be a great place to work from. Many of the bigger cities have great co-working spaces. Co-working spaces are nice, because you get to meet other people. Often good coffee is served and these places have often good internet speeds.

At the moment I stay in Pattaya. As far as I know, Pattaya has only one co-working space, but it’s really great. It’s called Anchor Co-working and can be found in the southern part of Pattaya: Jomtien.

For a desk, one can expect to pay around 3000 Baht a month (~80 EUR). Office space can also be rented for just a day. A good cup of Cappuccino will set you back 55 Baht (~1.35 EUR) and a Croque Monsieur around 90 Baht (~2.25 EUR). Cheaper food can be found outside the office premises. Free water is served all day.

Later this year I will check out the co-working spaces of Chiang Mai, a city in the northern part of Thailand. Unlike Pattaya, Chiang Mai has many co-working spaces.
