As a socially responsible hostel, we simply cannot get enough of ISDSI, one of the most eco-friendly of coworking spaces. This coworking space was designed with sustainability in mind all the while keeping an incredibly cool aesthetic. For one, all of the light fixtures are LED ones. The doors and walls of the building were made with recycled and offcut steel, as well. ISDSI stands for International Sustainable Development Studies Institute. It is essentially a study abroad program, and the team that works for them is based here, but digital nomads are also welcome.
The coworking space is incredibly unique in that it is actually made up of 17 shipping containers and is equipped with a library, classrooms, conference rooms, and more. The open office concept makes working as a group a breeze, and because the spaces are broken up by the containers, you will not bother your fellow digital nomads or working students by talking. The open-concept common area flows out into a large green space where you will also find a cafe. This coffee shop doubles as a social enterprise, as it sources its beans from hill-tribes in the mountains. CrossFit Chiang Mai sits just adjacent the coffee shop and working space, as well, should you want to get in a quick workout after sitting at your laptop all afternoon!

Green tea is also imported from Japan, and visitors to this coworking space can work all the while enjoying the smell of all these drinks being made. It has been around since 2014 and has been impressing visitors to the country ever since. You can order food here, as well, should you work up an appetite whilst working away online!

The bigger the coworking space the better, at least when it comes to Camp found on the fifth floor of Maya Mall. This creative and meeting space is sponsored by AIS, one of the best internet providers in the country, so you know the Wi-Fi is going to be speedy fast. The coworking space opens up to the interior of the mall with large, floor to ceiling glass windows and is arguably the most aesthetically pleasing of coworking spaces in the city.
Camp is a triple threat in that it is a library, coworking space, and coffee shop, making it the perfect spot to ignite your inner creativity. Get loads of work done at any one of the ample number of desks. The light wooden seating arrangements makes the interior simply shine all the while making the space feel natural and organic. In stark contrast, the ceiling is adorned with ultra modern light fixtures and cool works of wooden art. If you are not feeling the comfortable green chairs, instead pull up a floor cushion and sit on the wooden steps that slope up against the side of the space.
