9 High Tech Cities Outside Silicon Valley To Explore

...

Millennials know exactly what they want and expectations are high - very high. They are empowered

California's Silicon Valley is one of the world's most famous tech hubs, but there are many up-and-coming cities investing in infrastructure, transportation, and growing startup scenes. Here are nine destinations around the world for tech-savvy travelers.

When you hear the term "global tech hub," there are a few parts of the world that may spring to mind. California's Silicon Valley is arguably the most famous, but it's far from the only area investing in tech innovation.

In the US, there are several cities where IT professionals may think about putting down permanent roots. Considering their cost of living, job satisfaction rates, and work-life balance, these areas are the best for tech pros looking for a new place to call home.

But what if you're content with your city and job, and aren't keen on the idea of moving? What if you simply want to spend a week or two exploring one of the world's many high tech cities?

Some of the world's tech hubs are better known than others. Tokyo, for example, has long had a reputation for being at the forefront of technological advancement, and it continues to prove itself an innovator with a rapidly growing startup scene.

However, many of the world's high-tech cities are still flying under the radar. Tallinn, Estonia, is one example of an area booming with tech innovation, but not the first to come to mind for most people.

There are still many summer weeks left and plenty of time to take a vacation. As you plan your summer travels, consider exploring one of these global cities, both inside and outside the US, known for their growing focus on tech innovation.

Have you traveled to any of these tech hubs? Are there any locations you would add to this list? We'd like to keep adding, so feel free to share your thoughts in the comments.
