While the global coworking space market is steadily declining, the market is then expected to recover higher than ever by 2023.
The growth will be a direct result of companies allowing their employees to work from home and individuals trying to make ends meet.
Freelancers, startups, entrepreneurs, and companies are quickly realizing they can have teams across the world and still be successful. Anyone with a laptop has the ability to work remotely from any corner of the world.
The future looks bright for remote freelancing and startups.
While commuting to work is slowly coming to an end as we know, an estimated 1 billion of us will be roaming the planet by 2035.
And, ever since Bali’s Internet reached high speed and a somewhat reliable connection, coworking spaces are everywhere on the island.
As a result, Bali has become the new mecca for remote workers. With strong wifi, strong java, warm weather year-round, and an abundance of outdoor activities, you’ve got the perfect work-life balance. It’s no surprise digital nomads and other remote workers are making their base in Bali.

Top 5 reasons Bali a great digital nomad destination
1. Internet– Without it, we can’t work, too slow and unreliable, we lose work and get frustrated. Luckily, the availability and speed of broadband connections in Bali have improved dramatically, especially since the introduction of 4G and fiber optics.
Mobile connection is cheap and fast — The average SIM card with 4 gigs of internet data goes for about 90,000 Rp (roughly $6.38 USD). The three main providers in Bali are Telkomsel, XL, and Smartfren. A typical connection speed on mobile will run between 1mbps – 15mbps.
2. Cost-effective– Bali is definitely an affordable place to live. You could live on US$20 a day or less including accommodations, meals, and transport. Eating local food at a warung could only set you back as little as $1 or 2 USD per person if you stay away from western food.
3. Inspirational– If you are a digital nomad, you probably spend countless hours on your laptop. So, you’ll need your off time to be as inspiring as possible. Bali provides a lot of inspiration such as, surfing, snorkeling, beach clubs, eclectic nightlife, warm weather, and vibrant culture. The trick is to find balance and not get distracted.
4. Safety– Compared to other SE Asian countries, Bali is comparatively safer. I have yet to experience any of my equipment stolen although I do keep a pretty good eye on things. I also don’t mind paying a few dollars extra to stay somewhere decent with a proper safe, and security.
5. Community–The digital nomad community in Bali is strong. It’s a great place to network, meet fellow freelancers and business owners, and create opportunities for yourself.
