As the number continues to rise, so does the demand for coworking spaces which can provide these digital nomads with more flexible and productive working environments while minimizing operational costs for freelancers or startups.
If you are an expat mixing business and pleasure in beautiful Singapore, it may seem easy enough to look for a good coworking space where you can settle in immediately. But do know that not all coworking spaces in this concrete island offer the same advantages, rates, and proximity to other central business centers.
