Chiang Mai is a major hotspot for digital nomads, thanks to its wonderful weather, friendly vibe, authentic feel, and fantastic food. So, in addition to the almost endless things to see and do here, it makes sense that there are plenty of great coworking spaces in Chiang Mai too.
I spent several months living in Chiang Mai and it’s a super-productive place to meet new people and enjoy a totally different culture. In fact, I’d go back tomorrow without hesitation.
The best workspaces in Chiang Mai are scattered around the city, so you’re never too far away from somewhere to set up shop. But, which are worth it, and why? Let’s find out.
Best Coworking Spaces in Chiang Mai
There are plenty of places to work from in Chiang Mai, so whether you’re a cafe or coworking type, you’ll be spoilt for choice.

The decor is bright and vibrant, and there are plenty of spaces for collaboration, which is encouraged. I found the staff really helpful, and they all speak English, so you can ask for whatever you need and know that you’ll be understood.
I also liked that there’s an on-site cafe so you can grab a coffee or lunch while you’re there, without having to venture outside. Overall, I found Yellow Coworking Space a really productive place to be.
Membership Options and Costs
There are various membership options available, including a day pass which costs 429 THB ($12). You can purchase a monthly pass which includes a desk, one free coffee per day, and access to the meeting room. This costs 5990 THB ($167).
