Vietnam has long been known for its exceptional natural beauty and delicious food, but today, many digital nomads are drawn to its rapidly growing IT industry and startup scene.
This scene, combined with a low cost of living, has led to a surge of coworking spaces popping up around Ho Chi Minh City. But with so many options, picking the right one can be tricky.
Below are eleven of the best coworking spaces in Ho Chi Minh City for digital nomads visiting Vietnam:
1. The Vibes
The Vibes has an upscale feel and includes special attention to architectural design. Located in An Phu, The Vibes includes several options — the ones you would expect like private desks, offices, meeting rooms, etc. — but also "huts", self-contained pods built with privacy in mind, for less than the cost of a private desk.
An emphasis on greenery and avant-garde architecture designed in partnership with Ho Chi Minh City's Infinite Architecture contributes to a calming high-end coworking experience where workers can relax and feel comfortable and productive in.
Dreamplex's coworking space has everything you could need to hit the ground running. Whether you're running a small startup or a large business, Dreamplex has what it takes to support your team.
Its full-service space allows you to pursue your business goals without having to worry about the details of office administration, like cleaning and maintaining the building's systems.
Even the most basic coworking membership plan grants you unlimited coworking and access to Dreamplex's exclusive workshops, training, and fitness classes to further hone your professional skills, promote mindfulness, and stay healthy.
3. cirCO Coworking Space
Nestled in the heart of Ho Chi Minh City, cirCO Coworking Space is the perfect space for young entrepreneurs to work day to day. Its open-concept coworking area promotes open-mindedness, clarity, and creativity. And when you need to decompress, its chill-out areas allow you to relax and recharge.
criCO has two locations in Ho Chi Minh City to choose from, both of which can be easily accessed by car or public transportation.
Comspace is not your typical shared workspace. Rather than sitting at a plain desk in a stiff chair all day, you have your choice among a wide variety of workspaces and seating options.
The unique interior design is said to help get the creative juices flowing, but the area is super flexible and can be utilized by professionals in virtually every industry.
Comspace also has private offices and meeting rooms that you can rent, as well as virtual office packages.

The Hive is known around the world for its high-quality coworking spaces, and Thao Dien is no exception. Located in the heart of District 2, The Hive Thao Dien provides a bright, lively workplace for entrepreneurs and innovators to focus on their grind.
When you need a break, you can stroll up to the scenic rooftop terrace to soak up some sun, take in the fresh air, and connect with like-minded people. Although its coworking space is great for networking, if you have a large team working towards a specific goal, a private office may be more advantageous.
Sharespace is a carefully designed space, incorporating nature and bright colors to boost creativity and teamwork. With three locations in Ho Chi Minh City, you're never very far from a Sharespace office.
All of its locations offer office space for individuals and teams, super-fast internet, cozy lounge areas, refreshments, and regular cleaning service. Sharespace even has reception services to handle phone calls to your business.
