One thing is for sure, technology is transforming everything. Those who want to be at the cutting edge of technology enjoy being immersed in everything tech. When we travel, most of us want to get away from the hum of our smartphones. On the other hand, others find nothing more enjoyable than traveling the world and losing themselves in gadget nirvana.
If you’re a techie who wants to be in the thick of things, you might want to book a flight to one of these locations.
It’s not unexpected that we begin our tech journey in Asia, but it may come as a surprise that we start in India. The reason we have started in India is the must-see attraction in Bengaluru at the Visvesvaraya Industrial and Technological Museum.
The museum aims to pique people’s curiosity in the future of tech by encouraging them to pursue scientific endeavors and is definitely a must-see if you find yourself in southern India
In keeping with our Asian theme, we must highlight Tokyo, Japan, which is the epicenter of the global quest for technological excellence. If the city feels too much for you and there’s too much to do, travel to the Akihabara District, where you’ll find the world’s largest shopping center dedicated to the sale of computer goods and video games. You will be in Navana if you are a techie.
While we have scoured the globe and considered the contributions of nations worldwide, we have concluded that Silicon Valley, California is at the epicenter of innovation, located in only a few square kilometers are some of the world’s leading technology companies.
Googleplex and Google Android Garden, as well as the Apple stores, are all available. You may also look for tours around Facebook, Oracle, and a slew of other places. If you’re serious about your tech travel, you’ll want to make a pit stop in the United States of America.
You may also visit the garage where HP began building the latest personal computers if you are a true geek. Nothing will be more motivating than seeing the humble origins of a global brand.
You can also visit the Computer History Museum if you want to immerse yourself a little more in history. Still, in Silicon Valley, this structure houses the entire history of computing, which dates back over 2000 years (assuming you presume some of the early codes were attempts at algorithms – and don’t forget the abacus’ computing capacity).
Seoul, South Korea
Perhaps a little more predictable, we recommend that you spend some time in Seoul; SK Telecom exemplifies a commitment to future technologies, continually seeking to implement the most cutting-edge ICT. They were responsible for several first-generation technology advancements.
Bletchley Park, UK
Bletchley is a location for both history and technology enthusiasts. While London may be home to some of the world’s greatest tech inventors, Bletchley Park was the home of WWII code-breakers and, as a result, the modern-day computer’s creators.
Bletchley Park continues to contain an innovation center that contributes to the development and growth of knowledge-based businesses. You can visit for a day and view the exhibitions on your own or you can pay for the complete guided tour.
If you want to learn more about Europe, Berlin, Germany, is the place to go. Take in the history of the Berlin Wall before heading to the German Technology Museum, or Deutsches Technikmuseum as it is known among locals. Tours and exhibitions are available throughout the day.
Another must-see for techies on the road is Sweden’s National Museum of Science and Technology (Tekniska Museet). This museum, which is the country’s largest, represents the Swedish vision of the future and what a vision that is!
