Technology has indeed made the world a smaller place—it’s the medium through which we can now connect with someone or see something on the other side of the globe without leaving our homes.
Yes, these technologies are groundbreaking, but none of them can replace real life travel. Your feet on new soil, your nose happily perplexed with new culinary aromas and your sense of direction all over the map. No number of likes can beat these sensations—except when capturing these experiences leads to countless likes …
So, the best of both worlds is seeing and experiencing technology in a foreign place. Even better is traveling forward in time to marvel and geek out in the world’s most innovative and technologically advanced cities.
Technology and innovation aren’t just Silicon Valley things. These five cities prove that technological advancement is working in every corner of the globe and show us how our world is smaller and more connected than ever before.
