Beautiful sandy beaches, remarkable monkey forests, and mouth-watering cuisine make Bali one of the most beloved vacation destinations around the world. With 6.3 million tourists a year, it’s no wonder Bali, Indonesia continues to be one of the best places to work remotely. As companies are hiring more remote workers in 2022, Remote Year is bringing a digital nomad hub to Bali – after hosting experiences and side trips on the island since 2018.
We’ve teamed up with BWork, one of the best coworking spaces in Bali, to collaborate on must-see and do attractions and activities surrounding their coworking space. BWork is not only an ideal space to work, but a centralized hub surrounded by great places to eat, explore, and adventure. Read on as we partner with BWork’s staff, as they share everything the coworking space and surrounding area have to offer. Plus, they’ll share their on-the-ground expertise on how to spend an ideal day working remotely from one of Southeast Asia’s premier destinations.

Morning coffee before work tastes better at BWork
Oftentimes, a calming and productive morning means being away from the office. At BWork, it’s the opposite. Even as a centralized space with so many cool studios, shops, and cafes around, BWorks also stands as a place to hang out outside of work. The hub hosts morning workout yoga sessions and serves one of the city’s best cups of coffee. While others are dreading walking into their office, BWork remote workers love greeting each day with such a unique space!
“I normally spend three to four days of my morning in a week with some exercises and head to BWork to start my day. After a coffee, I feel energetic and ready to start the work day, saying hi to all the familiar and new faces at BWork.” - Jessica , General Manager of BWork .
For those who like to spend their mornings outside of BWork before their day begins, the coworking space has so many wonderful attractions. “I love to go early in the morning, with less traffic, and fresh air, put on my sunnies, and enjoy the Canggu life. Make sure to buy the nasi jinggo at Tibubeneng Field, IDR 5K and it's the best!” - Vannya, BWork Marketing Specialist.
Elevate your lunch break with Balinese cuisine
Part of living in a different country is experiencing the local food. In Bali, authentic Indonesian cuisine is plentiful and delicious. Thanks to the standard cost of living, you can also expect to pay less for a nice lunch out (no brown bag lunches required here) than you would in areas with a higher cost of living. We got advice from locals on where they like to grab their afternoon lunch:
“Warung Sika is a typical Balinese Warung that serves Nasi Campur. Go there for lunch between 11:30 to 14:00, and they’ll usually just hand you freshly made dishes. It's the perfect option for a quick bite in between your work. The warung is located only a 3 minutes scooter ride from BWork and just 10-15 minutes walking.” - Jessica, General Manager of BWork .

The beach and jungle are just outside your office
Swap your home office for a centralized coworking space in the heart of Bali. Having an office space on one of Indonesia’s most famous islands gives you access to some of Southeast Asia’s richest cultural sites. Luckily, BWork is next to some of the most enriching local experiences one could participate in when living and working remotely in Bali.
“Visit Tanah Lot! Only 20 minutes from BWork on a motorbike or scooter, Tanah Lot is a sacred place for Hindus. After taking in the historic and religious sights, you can close the day out with a great sunset too.” - BWork’s finance team member, Dita Anggraini.
“There are a lot of temples nearby at BWork. People in the Canggu normally head to the beach, as this is where Canggu culture is most prevalent.” - BWork Operational Manager, Vionna.
