Macau, sometimes spelled as Macao, is a remote worker’s dream if you are looking for a base that’s a perfect combination of both work and play. Coliving is alive and well here in this unique destination.
Macau is a part of the Special Administrative Region of China. Whilst it is small and often considered as just a stop for a day tour while in Hong Kong and China, one shouldn’t underestimate Macau as a coliving choice.
While the city is a part of China, it also has its own unique appeal. For one, it is often considered the “Las Vegas of Asia” because of its numerous casinos. It also has an old European feel as the city was once colonized by the Portuguese. Macau is also visa-free for 66 countries, making it accessible to digital nomads and remote workers who’d like to add more countries to their list.
You’ll find temples, ruins of Cathedrals, and stone forts if you’re not into gambling and exploring the shops. The Senado Square is Macau’s urban center and it’s famous for the neo-classical and pastel buildings.
For adrenaline junkies, Macau is recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records as it has the highest bungee jump than all other countries. Should you dare to jump from 764 ft above the ground, you’ll find the attraction on top of Macau Tower.
Coworking spaces in Macau, while still new, do show a lot of potential. Coliving is starting to gain momentum here and more spaces are opening each month.
