Nest by AIA – Work Cafe

September 20, 2016

Nest aka Work Cafe is the AIA-backed sibling of Work Saigon, Saigon’s first co-working cafe.


This is a stunning workspace you can drop in to, payment is of course in food and drink. It’s currently my favourite place to work from in Saigon, along with Work Saigon. No I’m not being paid to say this.

There seems to be a Man In Charge who saunters about wearing an earpiece, he’s also in charge of the dubious music choices that always seem turned up to LOUD. Pack headphones, you may need them.

Another tip is there is only 1 toilet cubicle for women/disabled and 1 for men. If you’re feeling a little bit rushed, there are toilets just outside Work, across the way.


This one’s a no-brainer for flying visits. It’s in Bitexco, the tallest building in Saigon. No Uber or taxi driver has any excuse for not knowing where this is.

Does It Serve Food

Mainly pastries and cookies. They also serve smoothies and fizzes.

Lunch Rush

None, because it mainly serves pastries.


You have register your email address just once. It used to kick you out every hour, but seems to have stopped recently.

Power Points

Mucho multo. If you’re on the shared work desks (your most ergonomic option), ask for an extension cord from the cashiers if it’s not already set up.


Yes! Chairs, sofas, a bleacher of sorts with cushions and if you’re over 6ft, perhaps some standing desk kind of areas (provided you don’t need to type too much).

Address Bitexco Financial Tower, 2 Hai Trieu, District 1
