As a famous tourist destination, Bali provides the most luxurious accommodations, exciting party places, and beautiful beaches.

But not everyone here has their mind set for just a good time, some come here not only to play but also to work.

Whether you’re finding some place to camp out in between beach-hopping to check important e-mails, or update your travel blogs, Skype with the loved ones at home, or just uploading beautiful photos to your website – a good spot to work at is important.

Also read: 13 best places to find authentic local food in Bali

Sure, there are a lot of cafes in Bali, but if you’re going to work, you’re going to need 1) good coffee, 2) free WiFi, 3) power outlets, and 4) um, well, beer.

And a good thing about Bali is that no one will try to kick you out or bother you every 30 minutes whether or not your order only consists of one coffee.

But of course, disclaimer here: No wifi is perfect, especially in Bali where internet in general can be as unpredictable as the Balinese climate nowadays. So don’t pull your hair out if your email takes forever to get sent, sometimes there are problems with the telco, or it can be a regional internet problem, or it can be simply because too many of your fellow diners are watching YouTube and slowing down the internet speed!

Instead of stalking your neighbours and peeping over their phones or laptop, why not spend this pocket of no-internet downtime to sip your coffee, stare out into the streets or paddy fields, and chat up that cute girl sitting opposite you? Because, hey, you are in Bali after all!

This list is just the tip of the iceberg, but it’s enough to get you started. Have at it, you lucky office-less people!
