Whether you're just starting out or you're an experienced digital nomad, this is an amazing place to make your new hub. The island is quite large so not having a mode of transport is not an option. There are plenty of motorbikes and cars for rent as well, with driving somewhat chaotic. If you're going to colive here for a while, you should look into car rentals.
You can’t get bored of this island because the island has everything you could ever need, from lush pristine beaches and amazing nightlife all the way to scuba diving and sailing. The island is home to roughly 500,000 residents and it is just under the size of Singapore, but don’t let this fool you as there are plenty of secluded spots to get away from the bustling streets. Phuket also has the second-largest international airport in the country as a hub for Thai Airways. With flights to take you all around the world and as far away as London and Germany.
For any digital nomad, this is a great choice in a coliving space and something to experience at least once in your life. Start off your workday by the beach in one of the many cafes and find yourself hiking to a waterfall for your lunch break. To bring it all together, in the evening you may even find yourself sipping wine watching the sunset over the Indian ocean before making your way to the many nightclubs that fill the island.
