Vodcast # 24 - A Cross-Cultural Lodging Experience by John Ho
Our digital nomad friend John, who’s originally from Hong Kong, began his venture in Chiang Mai to look for rising opportunities in Asia, particularly Thailand. Now he not only runs his digital livestream and creation page, but also a brand-new co-living space @altcolivingCM.
With vaccines available and starting to distribute, many are looking forward to border reopening. As people are more open to work from home and work remotely, the trend of digital nomads is beginning to explode.
Next time when you plan for your journey in Asia and struggling where to live, consider co-living space an option. The idea is that you have your private space, while sharing a common area with other neighbours - which applies a sharing economy model. This is particularly suitable for those with an open mind and look for meeting new friends from different cultures.
In a world of globalization, co-living spaces serve as celebrating cultural diversity. Consider it next time when you travel!
