In today’s high-speed connected world, a major concern for business and recreational travelers alike is being able to stay online wherever we go. When coming to Bucharest, you can rest easy. One of the top ten places in the world for internet connection speed, this is a city that goes out of its way to bring you the best and the most recent of what the digital world has to offer.
First, it’s incredibly easy for a traveler to find an internet connection. Le Boutique Hotel Moxa itself offers free cable and/or wireless internet connection in all of its rooms, of course. Most shopping centers and pubs or cafés offer free wifi as well, and there are a number of public hotspots that can be accessed via cellular networks around the city.
Speaking of cellular networks, if you don’t have a Romanian phone, don’t worry! The big networks in Bucharest, such as Vodafone or Orange, offer pay-as-you-go phones or SIM cards for tourists, and many foreign telecom companies offer discount roaming deals as well.
Once you’re connected, there are a number of startup app developers who work hard to use the internet to connect foreign visitors to their home city, so you can use these to explore in a new and interactive way. Many apps, such as Romania Travel Guide by Triposo or City Maps and Walks by GPSmyCity.com offer free apps for iOS and Android, and there are some really fantastic new ideas as well. Bucharest Travel Guide by eTips Ltd, for example, offers an augmented reality tour experience that’s free for online access and very reasonable to download for offline use. You can open up the app, turn on the AR button, and watch as popular and recommended sightseeing spots and eateries pop up on the screen.
In short, if you’re looking for a fantastic place to visit where you can stay connected to your favorite websites, social media contacts, or travel information, this is the place for you!
