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

Join us in Da Nang, Vietnam

Feb 25 – Apr 7 2018

Get your fill of banh mi and hang out in beachside infinity pools in one of our favorite destinations.

This is our 3rd time in Da Nang, and there’s a reason we keep coming back: it gets rave reviews. Check out this video from our trip there in 2016:

Housing & Coworking

Want more beach in your life? We’ll be staying 50 meters from the ocean in an amazing family-run hotel. Daily breakfast is included in this location, with banana pancakes that are to-die for. When you want to get work done, drop into the coworking space we’ve set up on the upper floors with sweeping views of the sea, or check out of the local cafes.

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”.

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!

I was nervous about balancing productivity and fun while traveling abroad, but the HP community provides a perfect balance of structure and spontaneity. What really makes the whole thing work is the people.


Da Nang is one of the most livable cities in Vietnam. We’ll be living right on the beach, where you can walk in the mornings or go surfing. Da Nang is also home to some of our favorite infinity pools, one right on the beach, and the other on the rooftop of a nearby hotel. The food is fantastic, with great options for pho, banh mi, and other local cuisine. Also, there are great cultural options right nearby, like the old city of Hue, Cham Island, the beautiful town of Hoi An, and the My Son ruins.
