Bali has a growing community of Digital Nomads and Expats living the island life. It is full of Cafe’s and coworking spaces that we all gather to work at, network and relax. Before coming to Bali I had no idea what “Coworking” was. Coworking means the use of an office or other working environment by people who are self-employed or working for different employers, typically so as to share equipment, ideas, and knowledge. In Bali’s case, coworking is just that, sharing the wi-fi, sharing ideas and sharing contacts to grow your network and your business.
Dojo is one of the most popular places to cowork here in Canggu. Dojo is great because it’s 24/7, has strong wi-fi connection and tons of ways to help you network with your fellow nomads. However it can be quite expensive ($20 for a day pass) and sometimes you just want to get out of the house and work while you eat. My favorite thing to do is search out cafe’s that don’t mind you sittin’ around all day, ordering 12 coffees and 3 meals while you use the internet. The thing is, cafe’s can be great for networking as well! You’ll notice that a lot of the same people tend to hang around these places and eventually, you just get to know them all. Some places are better for this than others, and I’ve decided to share my favorites.
My favorite Cafe’s to Work From in Canggu, Bali
Nude cafe is perfect for working inside and out. It has an enclosed, airconditioned area with tables and plugs, perfect for when it’s just to hot or rainy outside. But when the weather is perfect, you can sit outside in a working nook also equipped with plenty of plugs to go around.
Their menu is full of healthy and delicious meals as well as coffees, kombucha and fresh juices.
One of my favorite places to eat in ALL of Canggu. All outdoors but covered, which is good to keep in mind if you are in desperate need of wi-fi. Crate has the most amazing menu in the world and perfect coffee. I love it. I think I tried everything that I could eat and had about 13 of their coffees and juices. Crate is a must visit.
Also - if you love shopping, they have an adorable shop setup that you can find perfect jewelry and stylish clothes to match your trendy cafe vibe.
(They also have an employee that covers your scooter seat after you park so you don’t burn your bum off.)
