The SEA Co-Working Space

The road Tiger Muay Thai and Signature Phuket are on is having extensive roadworks today, with power and water outages. This means no training, as I can’t shower afterwards and no Internet as there’s no electricity, so I’ve headed out to a co-working space to get some work done.

The SEA Coworking Space

The SEA co-working space is located in Phuket Town, next to the historical clock tower and has a lovely nautical ambience when you get inside, with orcas and whales everywhere. The vibe is peaceful, with chilled music playing and people whispering. This is not a busy office environment.

Internet Speed

I’m pretty sure SEA Co-working has 30Mb down as that’s what I was getting when I first arrived, but since then 6 other people have turned up!

Services

This is a co-working space, so you need to bring your own computer, but SEA has, obviously, wi-fi, printing, fax, a nice coffee shop, free water and snacks, a relaxing sofa space, a kitchen you can use to prepare food, books to read, a play area for children and toilets.

Prices

Prices are competitive, I’ve opted for the 199 Baht (£4) day pass for the time being. Prices are on their Facebook page but here’s a screenshot of their current price list.

Hot coffee goes for 40 Baht (£0.80) but you get one free with admission, the sandwich was 90 Baht (£1.80), they also have a daily dessert.

I like SEA Co-working Space, but they need to do more with their marketing. Having just a Facebook page isn’t really enough. They do update it regularly though, which was reassuring as some of the other co-working spaces I was looking at had terrible websites and social media pages that had been dormant since August, I had no idea if the others were really still open!

  • Hey Rus, just discovered your blog today from your Reddit post. Looking forward to more of your articles. I know you’re getting into drop shipping, but are you trying out any other business ideas?

      I started selling on Amazon in May and I’m doing pretty well building up my own brand there, I’ve 2 products launched so far with another 2 on the way. I’ve also got some successful websites, using traditional SEO, going back 5 years running Adsense that also generate affiliate sales. I’m more about building successful online businesses these days though.

      I’m currently looking in to drop shipping to diversify my business portfolio, but to also open up new markets I can’t yet afford to purchase stock for. It’s a great way to test the viability of a new market, if you can’t afford to hold stock but can find good suppliers!
