It used to be that hotels would charge for Wifi. After a few years most hotels caught on that pretty much everybody sees wifi as a commodity and not an option. And if Wifi is a commodity, how can they charge for it? You don’t see hotels charging extra for electricity do we?
But while the prevalence of Wifi is seen as a good thing by almost everybody, it makes it that much harder to disconnect from work while you are on vacation. If your boss knows you can get online, the more chances there are of him or her bugging you while you are on vacation. If only there were places you could go that had less coverage and provided you with a built-in excuse not to check in back at the office…
Luckily somebody has done the research for us and come up with the three countries with the highest percentage of hotels without Wifi.
“According to research by a global travel agency Trip.com, the countries with the fewest hotels equipped with W-Fi are Chile, Mongolia and Thailand.”
While it might be hard to totally stay offline, you could prepare yourself entertainment-wise by downloading shows from Netflix onto your tablet and also downloading Spotify playlists before you go. Oh, and load up your Kindle. Better yet, try going retro and take some books and a walkman!
