Thailand’s Chiang Mai Now Has a Co-Working Office with ‘Pun Space’

pun space coverpun space cover Thai co-working space Pun Space has opened its doors to the public yesterday. The office is located in Chiang Mai, in northern Thailand, and co-founder Vichaya Piqué Sirisanthana hopes that they can attract entrepreneurial talent to their office:

Chiang Mai is a nice and quiet, mid-sized town that many software developers and creative designers love. Most of them, however, are working in coffee shops or from home. We’re not sure what’s the demand will be like, but we’d love to give it a try.
Pun Space (meaning “shared space”) is open everyday from 9am to 9pm. There are 34 hot-seats, an eight-seat meeting room equipped with webcams for video conferencing, as well as a big-screen TV, and facilities like a printer, scanner, copier, and phones. But startups usually work long hours, and to accommodate that, Piqué is now considering 24-hour access by setting up a key card access system for the resident members. To work at Pun Space for a day normally costs 199 baht (US$6.67), or the price drops for longer memberships. The daily member rate is almost twice that of the price of a Starbucks coffee in the country, so why should people consider making use of a co-working space? Piqué explains that there are a lot of benefits, such as being able to do longer working hours than in a cafe, having the chance to meet people with the same interests, and creating a nice separation between personal life and work compared to working from home.

You can try working at Pun Space for free in March. The website is now up, showing further details and a regular price list here. Last month we dropped into another working space in Thailand, down in Bangkok, called Hubba Space which is also a partner with Pun Space.
