With the development of technology, a lot of jobs have become available to digital nomads, and those are great news. A lot of people no longer have to be captured inside an office one boring day after another, and they are free to roam the Earth. However, now it becomes a question on which place should you visit first
In case you are not looking for a place with the wildest parties, and instead want to expand your knowledge of different cultures, this is the article for you. We came up with a list of 5 sites you need to visit if you like places with big cultural heritage. Before we begin, be aware that they are not listed in any particular order.
- Pecs, Hungary
Every traveler probably knows about Budapest, the capitol city of Hungary, but this town is amazing. How amazing is that? Enough to be named the European Capitol of Culture back in 2010. The city was founded by the Romans in the 2nd century, and most of the cathedrals date back to that time. The locals are extremely friendly, and the cuisine is excellent. As far as the Internet goes, you can have a decent connection for a reasonable amount of money. Hungary is known for beautiful people, so who knows, you might meet the other of your life here. It’s worth giving a shot.
- Malacca, Malaysia
There is no doubt that in a few years, this will become one of the favorite destinations for digital nomads. We are saying that for a good reason, as the city is filled with free WiFi hotspots, and is not expensive to live in. You know it wouldn’t be a UNESCO Heritage Site for no reason. The city is gorgeous, and full of places you need to visit, including numerous museums which do their best to preserve the town’s legacy. Weather is not as bad as you might think, but be prepared for a bit of a warmer climate.
- Cartagena, Colombia
Cartagena is a city located in the Caribbean, dating back to the colonial era, so what’s not to like? It is the fifth biggest city in the county, but probably the most interesting one. The Palace of Inquisition and the Castle of San Felipe de Barajas will definitely blow you away, but that’s only the beginning. After you enjoy a walk down those cobbled streets, you can work in some of the beautiful seaside cafes. Tell me this doesn’t sound like paradise on Earth. And when you get tired, you can visit Islas del Rosario, a stunning national park of coral reef islands. It’s not a huge place, so you will be able to explore everything on foot.
- Hoi An, Vietnam
In recent years, Vietnam is challenging Thailand for the crown of the best country for digital nomads. Perhaps it was in the shadows for so long because tourists were afraid to visit it, but there is no reason for that. People are very friendly here, even though their English is not the best, but if you are on a hunt for a peaceful place that has gorgeous beaches all around, look no further. Reason why this place is under UNESCO Heritage is because it was a big spice trading port from 15th to 19th century, and it is still proud of the history. Know that if you get tired of the beach (like that’s gonna happen), the place is surrounded by mountains that just beg to be explored. Sadly, you will still need to work from time to time, so know that there are a lot of WiFi connections available, so that won’t be a problem.
- Torun, Poland
This jaw-dropping, gorgeous place is located on the Vistula river, and is filled with Gothic history. It is one of the oldest cities in Poland. From cathedrals to houses, everything is preserved to mirror that era. It is a miracle that the town was able to go through the second World War relatively undamaged and preserve so many of its historical places. It’s hard to put into words just how great this place is, but there’s a reason why people call it one of the 30 most beautiful places in the world. If you consider yourself a proper digital nomad, Torun has to be on your list.
