10 Luxurious Co-Working Spaces in Hong Kong
With our world shifting towards a sharing economy—and with Hong Kong's rental prices becoming more astronomical every year—it's no wonder many of the city's entrepreneurs and companies choose to base their businesses from a co-working space. They are a great place to build community spirit, a place to look for inspiration or just somewhere to meet new people. With Hong Kong already caught on the trend, we're spoiled for choice on the array of co-working spaces here.
With benefits ranging from networking events, happy hours, games and more, these are some of the city's most luxe co-working spaces.
