Call me old-fashioned, but I love a good shoulder season. Often, I’ll avoid international travel during the summer — and the high prices and temperatures associated with it — instead opting for amazing trips in the fall.
Since I’m working while on these trips, I’m concerned not just with the weather and cost, but also WiFi, safety, livability, and infrastructure.
If you can work remotely and are looking for some great destinations for the fall, be sure to consider these places:
Tbilisi has almost everything you’d want in a remote work destination – it’s safe, cheap, has solid infrastructure/WiFi, and it gets major bonus points for being off-the-beaten-path (though Western tourism to Georgia is starting to pick up).
In September, Tbilisi experiences an average of 4 days of rain with an average high of 80°F/27°C and an average low of 59°F/15°C.
I’ll be spending the latter part of September here and can’t wait to report on it.
There is never a bad time to go to Bali. Seminyak, located just north of party-central Kuta, boasts amazing beaches, a strong and growing remote work community, and is an easy drive to some of Bali’s most amazing attractions.
It’s cheap, too – if you do your research, you can rent out a private villa with your own pool that is only steps away from the beach for roughly $80/night (with even more affordable options if you’re willing to forgo a stunning villa).
In September, Seminyak experiences an average of 4 days of rain with an average temperature of 80°F/27°C.
Morocco is one of the most beautiful countries in the world and Marrakesh, nestled at the foot of the Atlas mountains, is no exception.
With amazing food, beautiful views, and incredible markets, fall is the perfect time to visit as the weather starts cooling down.
In September, Marrakesh experiences an average of 1 day of rain with an average high of 90°F/32°C and low of 66°F/19°C.
Anyone who reads my travel blog knows that I am obsessed with Santiago. It is, in my opinion, one of the safest, most beautiful, and livable cities on the planet.
Although it’s technically spring in the southern hemisphere, it’s still the perfect time to visit, with an average high of 67°F/19°C and 2 days of rain in September.
Recently voted the second most beautiful city in the world, you seemingly can’t go wrong with Budapest — it’s cheap, photogenic, and has reliable WiFi with a good infrastructure. There have been some alarming political developments in Hungary over the past few months, but it’s still safe to visit and a haven for remote workers.
I’ll be spending a week here in September before heading to Tbilisi and, similarly, can’t wait to report on the trip.
In September, Budapest experiences an average of 5 days of rain with an average high of 73°F/23°C and low of 51°F/11°C.
