CoWorking Spaces in the Philippines

We can’t get enough of the Philippines, which is one of the most popular destinations for digital nomads for years now. Even before the digital nomad boom, many remote workers have headed to the country thanks to their low cost of living, rich culture, world-class beaches, and the smorgasbord of things to do, whether you’re an adventure junkie or live for the city.

The Philippines is also taking notice of the growing number of digital nomads, which is why you can find many coworking spaces in major cities. Not only can you find ex-pats and travelers working in these spaces, but fellow locals who choose to work remotely and need a change of scenery!

Let’s take a look at the coworking spaces in the Philippines so you can kickstart your travel plans this 2023!

Why Visit the Philippines as a Digital Nomad?

The Philippines has always been a popular tourist destination because of the amazing beaches, diving reefs, jungles, and even bustling city life. That said, it’s also now becoming more popular as a digital nomad hub, with many settling in the country to work and enjoy the delicious food, scenic areas, and friendly locals.

Here are just some of the reasons why the Philippines is worth going to:

Cost of Living

While the Philippines doesn’t have the lowest cost of living compared to other Southeast Asian countries, it’s still fairly affordable with many inexpensive accommodations and food. $2,000 a month can go a long way, whether you’re staying in the country’s capital city or down south where the lovely beaches lie.

Amazing Community

Filipinos are known for their hospitality and it shows through their welcoming smiles. Furthermore, most Filipinos know how to speak English, so asking for directions and ordering food will be a breeze. You won’t have to worry about being snubbed, because everyone will be happy to help you when needed! Yoga retreat in the Philippines are becoming very popular and  highly recommended to visit.

Abundant Coworking Spaces 

As mentioned, Philippine locals are also part of the huge community of digital nomads and remote workers. As such, the country has seen an increasing number of coworking spaces and hostels to accommodate the community.

There are many coworking spaces available to work at in different cities, and there will be an island made for everyone! We recommend heading to popular cities like Manila, Cebu, Palawan, Bohol, and Boracay, depending on whether you want the cosmopolitan vibe or beach paradise. Either way, you can always expect fun nightlife, cheap eats, and memorable experiences.

Travel Visas

Digital nomads who want to work in the Philippines for the long-term can breathe a sigh of relief as the visa process isn’t complicated. Many countries can stay in the Philippines visa-free for up to 30 days. However, if you want to extend your stay, you can always pay for a visa-on-arrival and you can live in the Philippines for up to two months.

The Best Coworking Spaces in the Philippines

The next question is: Where in the Philippines can you work at? While you can head to a local café, you’ll be met with noise and cramped spaces with limited WiFi. This is where coworking spaces come along, many of which offer reliable Internet connection, a dedicated space as your workstation, and even unlimited beverages!

Whether you’re looking for a space in the city or dream of working by the beach, there’s a coworking space for you in this spectacular country, some of which are:

Clock In, Metro Manila

While there is numerous Clock In branches around the Philippines, the one in Bonifacio Global City takes the cake. It’s situated in the center of the business district where you’re mere steps away from cafes, restaurants, and shopping centers. You won’t have to go far to enjoy the beautiful city!
