Since Singaporeans started adopting the work from home culture several months ago, the people in the country have been embracing it. As the Straits Times reported, 8 out of 10 Singaporeans now prefer working from home and cited higher productivity as one of the reasons to support the practice.

So, whether you’re a freelancer, self-employed individual or a full-time worker, here is our list of Where to Work Outside of Home in Singapore.
