As a digital nomad, I work on the go. Although I can work wherever I am, I do admit that I am not as productive compared to sitting at my own desk at home.
Even so, work has to go on, whether I am in a classy hotel, a backpacker’s lodge, a bamboo hut nature resort, or at the train station waiting for my transport.
When I was in Kuala Lumpur last month, I was recommended The Kuala Lumpur Journal, a stylish boutique hotel established in 2015. It is located at the shopping-eating-entertainment haven of Bukit Bintang, and a short walk from the Bukit Bintang Monorail.
Being on the move, my work had piled up and I was appreciative of the conducive working environment at The KL Journal (Level 1) with fast WiFi internet connection.
There are meeting rooms, an internet room and long work tables, which double up as dining tables as and when required.
I spent two afternoons there working away at my laptop. I can say it was one of my most productive travels!
I could order food and drinks from the coffee house, and make use of the wash room. What was best for me was that I could just take a walk to stretch my legs and give my eyes a rest without packing everything away in my bag and carry it along, as I would have to do at a crowded café or public area.
Do take note that these facilities are only for hotel guests, at no additional charge, except for F&B orders. If you are someone who takes computer work along wherever you go, consider putting up at The KL Journal for its convenience. I’m glad I did.
