Canggu, Bali, Indonesia
The Brooklyn of Bali, stoked on young people, Instagrammable food, and good surf
Why you'd want to work there: There's nothing more inspiring than a morning commute in Canggu, across pristine tiny beaches and labyrinthine rice paddies with glimmering ocean views. In Bali's youthful hipster enclave, an office day consists of a dapper co-working space with surf and beach breaks, plus a steady diet of smoothie bowls, raw desserts, and cold drip coffee. The cost of living is incredibly cheap, with a two-bedroom villa priced at roughly $900 a month, and the area's premier co-working grounds, Dojo Bali, ranges from $51 a week to $146 a month for unlimited access, including facilities such as Skype booths and a pool. No wonder Canggu is home to a thriving expat colony of bespoke bikini and jewelry designers, full-time Instagrammers, startup gurus, and none of the Eat, Pray, Love crowd.
