Kuala Lumpur or Chiang Mai as an office base?

I’m currently based in Singapore but it’s too expensive to build out an operations office plus difficult to get access to the right talent (not popular with nomads/interns).

Requirements are:

  • Access to talent (popular with interns, nomads)
  • 3-4 person Office/coworking space space for $500-1000 pcm
  • Safe (I won’t be based there but thinking about my team)
  • Super-fast internet
  • Within 3 hrs Singapore by plane

My options for a 2nd base are Chiang Mai, Kuala Lumpur, JB.

Which do you think would be best?

Not a digital nomad or remote work related question. Therefore closed.
