The Best Travel Destinations for Gamers

News The gaming industry has been on the rise in recent years. Mobile gaming and eSports only boost the development of the industry that already has an annual market value of more than US$135 billion. In the past, gaming was often stigmatized and gamers were frowned upon. Fortunately, those days are gone, and now more people love this hobby and want to meet other gamers who share their passion.

Nowadays, more gamers want to not only play alone or with their friends but also visit popular events that shape the industry or simply see cities that cherish the gaming culture. This is also an unusual holiday that is a great alternative to an old beach vacation that many people feel tired of. So, if you are ready for the best gaming travel, here are the cities that are worth checking out.

The first city on our list is surprising. This is Tokyo. Many tourists visit Japan and search for hotels in Tokyo in an attempt to get acquainted with the mysterious and exotic culture of the country. However, this is also a mecca for many gamers around the world. In Japan, there is no need to feel ashamed of gaming addiction or cosplaying favorite gaming characters. Akihabara, a popular gaming district in Tokyo, is dedicated to gaming and everything related to it. Fans of the Pokemon games will find it interesting to visit Pokemon Centers. Finally, Taito Station appeals to all gamers as it offers a range of different titles.

Not ready to fly to Japan and would like to start with a “closer” destination? No problem, it is time to check Malmö hotels in this case. Malmö is not only a charming city in Sweden where tourists can enjoy a homelike atmosphere and exciting nightlife. This is one of the major IT destinations in Sweden, home to famous game studios, and a popular location of eSports events. Last year, the city hosted the DreamHack Counter-Strike: Go Masters. August 2020 will be the best time to visit Malmö as the city will host the League of Legends European Championship. Finally, the annual Nordic Game conference traditionally brings together the best gamers and developers of the continent.

South Korea is home to some of the most popular online games in the world, and Koreans love gaming too. No wonder that Seoul is home to one of the most famous eSports arenas in the world – the Yongsan e-Sports Stadium. The arena regularly hosts tournaments of different levels, so check out its schedule in advance. Finally, the London Games Festival is an interesting event to check out.
