When was the last time you actually went on a trip without any electronic gadgets? Chances are, it would probably be more than a decade ago or even never. A day without our mobile phones, laptops and other devices seems unthinkable. Our over-reliance on these electronics are said to have brought upon plenty of detrimental effects such as communication problems.
Going on a digital detox is at times necessary to allow one to reconnect with the present and rid of external noises. Living in a modern society means we are bombarded with too much information at any one point of time – and you will be surprised how being tech-free can tremendously help you to refocus in life. Life-changing in very alternative ways, a digital detox would be.
Here are 8 Exotic Vacation Destinations For A Digital Detox Experience.
#1 BUDDHIST MONASTERY, NEPAL
Ever found yourself struggling to have a quiet moment? We feel you. Living in a first-world city has its problems and our inner voices have evidently been suppressed for the longest time thanks to the never-ending commotion all around us. But visiting a serene Buddhist Monastery in Nepal might just provide you some much needed tranquility.
#2 EQI GLACIER, GREENLAND
No phone signal is available at Greenalnd’s Eqi Glacier, which is exactly what a digital detox retreat should be about! The only mode of transport is a single daily boat from Ilulissat and is the perfect place for you to slow down your pace of life and reconnect with Mother Nature.
#3 JONGOMERO CAMP, TANZANIA
Tanzania’s Jongomero Camp is outrageously isolated and is a highly sought-after destination among the wealthy. Experience the abundance of wildlife and jaw-dropping views of the national park, without the disturbances of cellular activities.
#4 LOCH HOURN, SCOTTISH HIGHLANDS
Up for an insane digital detox challenge? Then try the Scottish Highlands’ Skiary guesthouse. If you think no phone signal is bad, then you are wrong. Skiary is too deprived of electricity and roads! The only way to get there is via a boat (you have to book in advance) or by foot. Only for the adventurous who are seeking a challenge in life.
#5 ROYAL BELUM STATE PARK, MALAYSIA
Wifi hotspots are non-existent at Malaysia’s Royal Belum State Park, so you can be certain that there is no way you could succumb to checking your social media accounts! Hike the lush tropical forests and reignite the wanderlust in you once again.
#6 THREE CAMEL LODGE, MONGOLIA
Award-winning Three Camel Lodge allows travellers to immerse themselves in the wilderness of Mongolia with luxurious amenities. However, do bear in mind that zero wifi signal is available at this complex. The only connection you can tap on will be from the capital, which unfortunately is located hundreds of miles away!
#7 ULTIMA THULE LODGE, ALASKA
Do you seek adventure travel? Alaska’s Wrangell-St. Elias National Park is part of the largest protected land mass on earth. Paradise lies deep in the Alaskan wilderness. Immersed in nature – a hundred miles from paved roads – and you’ll discover a lodge steeped in luxury and centered on adventure.
#8 WILDERNESS SAFARIS, NAMIBIA
Namibia, an arid country of surprising contrasts, is home to two great deserts. Along its length, the vast shifting sand sea of the Namib sprawls inland along the Atlantic coastline. In order to fulfil individual needs, they have a wide range of Classic and Adventures camps.
