RemoteTips is not only for the master digital nomad, who already knows where to find the best WiFi in the world, but also for those who are just beginning to enjoy the remote worker lifestyle. This is why I decided to bring you 20+ destinations for the beginner digital nomad.
These are all remarkable travel destinations you need to see in your lifetime!
1. Iguazu Falls, South America
If you think the Niagara Falls is large, you have to see the Iguazu Falls, located at the borderline between Brazil, Paraguay and Argentina. The large falls welcomes and waves goodbye to amazingly huge volumes of water, which falls from hundreds of feet. The sounds are incredible, the view is incredible!
2. The Grand Canyon, United States
The Grand Canyon is one of the oldest national parks in US and one of the UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1979. As you watch the gigantic forms imagine them filled with water: this is a truly amazing picture.
3. New York, US
The Big Apple is more than a city; it is an entire experience for everyone who is not a native or doesn’t live in the NY permanently. The cities, the parks, the lights, the entire atmosphere – all make a special place which is able to blend in even the most amazing person.
4. Uyuni Salt Flats, Bolivia
When you tour Bolivia you have to see the Uyuni Salt Flats, where you can watch pink flamingos and blue water lagoons. However, the most impressive site is the white sand plain which stretches as far as you can see.
5. Machu Picchu, Peru
The long empty city of Machu Picchu is among the top destinations for the beginner digital nomad from a cultural point or view. Despite its inhabitants are gone, the city is very much alive, with millions of tourists coming to see it every year. The breathe taking views and the amazing Inca Trail must be experienced by all travelers.
6. GALAPAGOS ISLANDS, ECUADOR
Galapagos Islands are the place where Charles Darwin came up with his famous natural selection evolution theory and there’s a reason for that. The amazing diversity of the wildlife can’t be matched by any other place in the world, especially because Galapagos is home for many rare species which don’t live anywhere else.
7. Rome and its Colosseum, Italy
When in Rome, you have to see the Colosseum, no matter what. Yes, it is one of the most documented, photographed and talked about landmarks in the world, so you probably feel like you know it already. But nothing compares with the experience of looking up at one of the most impressive sites on the planet. It’s dimensions are going to overwhelm you, its history is going to make you visualize the gladiators fighting in the middle of the arena. Yes, the Colosseum is one of the destinations for the beginner digital nomad!
8. Plitvice Lakes, Croatia
Croatia is one of those countries which sits in the shadow of the larger, notorious European destinations, but pay it a visit and you won’t be disappointed. The Plitvice Lakes in Croatia are one of the natural beautiful places in the world. Referred to by the locals as the “Home of Fairies”, Plitvice Lakes have beautiful cascades which smash into the emerald and sapphire waters.
9. The Alhambra, Spain
There are many songs which mention the Alhambra and there is a strong reason for this: the Alhambra is a remarkable palace. Located in Granada, Spain, The Alhambra dates back to the Moorish era, in the 14th century and has a complex architecture, which is sure to delight you and make you fall in love with the palace.
10. The Golden Circle in Iceland
The Golden Circle is not a destination itself, but a chain of multiple destinations you can find in Iceland. As a beginner, you think Iceland is not a great pick, but you have to see this land, even if you are not going to spend a lot of time around, even if you won’t be actually working during your stay.
Back to the Golden Circle, it is a chain of natural wonders spread across 300km. The circle contains natural glaciers, geysers, horses and cairns, plus many other wonders I won’t mention, because you need to discover them yourself.
11. Matterhorn Mountain, Europe
Matterhorn mountain is located at the borderline between Italy and Switzerland, emerging as being the most famous peak of the Alps. The triangular piece of rock is Switzerland’s iconic landmark and attracts lots of alpinists, photographers and amateur climbers.
12. Brasov, Romania
Romania is a strange, but beautiful country where you can enjoy a strong WiFi, even in the heart of Transylvania, the place which inspired Bram Stoker. Unfortunately for you, Dracula is entirely fictional, but you can still visit Brasov and the surrounding Bran, the city of Bran Castle.
13. Giza Pyramids, Egypt
Giza is one of those places frozen in time. Not far away from the lavishing and modern Egyptian cities where some people drive the latest car models, while others ride camels, the Pyramids are going to make you travel back. Waaay back: they complex of the Pyramids of Giza was build around 2560BC!
The Great Pyramid of Giza is the only one of the 7 Wonders of the World still standing and this is impressive enough!
14. Maasai Mara, Africa
Africa might not sound like one of the best destinations for the beginner digital nomad when it comes to a strong connection, but give it a chance, because you have a lot of things to see. One of them is the Great Wildebeest Migration. Then, there are the Big 5 and the Small 5 and lots of local traditions.
15. Chiang Mai, Thailand
Chiang Mai is one of the destinations for the beginner digital nomad where you can enjoy the local traditions. This is the home of the Floating Lantern Festival, where you can light a lantern, make a wish and set it free in the sky.
16. Osaka, Japan
For a first trip to Japan Osaka makes a perfect destination, especially if you are traveling in spring. Visit Osaka Castle to enjoy the beautiful cherry tree blooms: the fragrance and the stunning views are definitely going to inspire you to continue your newly found digital nomad life.
17. Tiger’s Nest Monastery, Bhutan
In the Bhutan mountains there is a special place: the Paro Taktsang or the Tiger’s Nest Monastery. What makes this monastery special is its incredible location – the building sits on the side of a mountain! Getting to the monastery is not an easy thing, as the cliff carved steps have no handrail and there is a huge chasm right beneath you, but the efforts are rewarding.
18. Ha Long Bay, Vietnam
Ha Long bay located in Vietnam is one of those deceiving places in the world. The bay is surrounded by stone peaks which sometimes get partially hidden by mist, which makes them look like stand alone teeny tiny islands.
19. Petra, Jordan
Petra is a different type of oasis: hidden in a large canyon in Jordan, Petra is entirely carved into the rocks. There is a mock temple, which makes you wonder what lies behind the large entrance, there are many other gates and doorsteps carved in the canyon walls, as well as cave-like houses for the regular local. The caves were inhabited until recent years,when the Bedouins were moved out, making room for archaeologists and tourists. Petra was build in 312 BC and is one of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
20. Goa, India
India is the country which you can hate or love – there is nothing in between, so you have to see it during your first trip as a digital nomad. The best place to experience the strong cultural shock in India is Goa, which has amazing beaches. In fact, the most amazing beaches.
Australia and Oceania
21. The Great Barrier Reef, Australia
The Great Barrier Reef is one of the amazing natural wonders in the world which is disappearing rapidly. The pollution, the multiple climatic changes and the imbalance in the marine wildlife are killing the biggest coral reef in the world, so it’s definitely one of the destinations for the beginner digital nomad you don’t want to skip. After all, we don’t know how long we will be able to enjoy it.
