Hacker Paradise: A Traveling Community for Developers, Designers, and Other Creative Types.

Work hard and play harder in Koh Phangan

May 20 - June 16, 2018

Welcome to Koh Phangan

Enjoy the pristine, quiet, white sand beaches or the Full Moon Festival that made the island famous.

Being the best island in Thailand is a tough race but Koh Phangan is definitely in the running. The island is fringed with delightful bays, inlets, coves and beaches waiting for you to explore by foot, snorkel, surfboard, stand up paddle board, or boat.

When you’re ready to get your dance on, the south of the island holds the famous Full Moon Party on May 29th.  Get ready to experience one of the best beach parties in the world.

Housing & Coworking

Where you'll live

We will be located on the west side of the island, with our own private beach right in front of us and the beautiful mountains of the national park behind us. We will be in a quiet area that will allow you to relax at the beach, get a bunch of work done, and still be able to make it out  to party when you are ready.

Where you'll work

We all dream about working next to a beach. How about working 15 meters away from the white sand at Koh Space? The coworking space has the fastest and most reliable internet on the island, an open floor plan, an outdoor garden section, conference rooms, and more. It is everything you need to be productive in Paradise.

 

Warning! Hacker Paradise is highly addictive! This program is ideal for people who are striving to pursue success in their career, but also have a passion for traveling, i.e. “my people”.

It is very inspiring to be part of a community of open-minded people, who are willing to share their knowledge and hearts with you. Hacker Paradise is very well put together, and the facilitators do a great job managing it.

Best Value

Hacker Paradise closed the gap between idea and realisation of my dream to work and travel by providing a stable work environment and organising social and skill share events. 1 month in Chiang Mai taught me how to be a great remote worker!

I joined HP in Bali last December. Spencer and Dale are dream-team facilitators; we hiked a damn volcano, I was covered in monkeys multiple times, AND I got a ton of work done!
