Best Destinations for Solo Travelers
Admittedly, traveling solo can be a daunting experience. It's important to pick friendly, accessible destinations for your adventures. Here are our top 3 destinations for solo travelers.
Take a dive into the exotic by visiting Thailand on your own. Whether you take the popular "banana pancake route", comprising of a series of beach destinations, temples, and traditional settlements, or you create your own itinerary, Thailand is very friendly to solo travelers. It's a good idea to start your trip in Bangkok, the neon-lit metropole, filled with contrasts, from the never-ending skyscrapers to the market in Khao San Road, where peasants sell exotic fruits and curious local dishes. After that hustle and bustle, relax in a hammock or do island hopping by visiting Koh Yao, Koh Samui, Koh Tao, and many other Thai islands. The famous moon parties are held here so you'll dance your way into new friendships with other solo travelers and yoga aficionados. Give your journey a spiritual twist by visiting Ayutthaya, where most of the ancient Thai temples are located.
This developed country offers many adventures, while still being quite safe and comfortable. Start by making your way from the south upwards on the Fairytale Route stretching for 373 miles. This route starts from the Grimm Brothers' home and meanders through well-preserved medieval settlements, many nature parks, and magnificent castles. You can then spend a couple of days in Hamburg, the northern port city and marvel at the multi-coloured cranes loading cargo. Grab a local fish sandwich and admire the sunset on the shore. Continue your journey to Berlin, the capital city and walk alongside the former Berlin Wall, which used to divide the city during the Cold War. Interestingly, the famous techno clubs favour guests coming on their own.
Surprisingly, this country is well-suited for solo travel. With so many things to do and the friendly locals always being happy to socialize, you'll never feel lonely. Havana, the capital, is a mix of fascinating history, Caribbean charm, and amazing nightlife. Stroll through the Malecon area along the shoreline, where locals and tourists alike hang out at nightfall. This lively stretch fills up with music, salsa dancing, and incredible aromas of the local cuisine. Continue your journey to Santa Clara, where the famous Che Guevara was born. Join one of the many colourful religious processions in Trinidad - the town where Vodoo is still a daily practice. In the Baracoa area and the Humbolt Park, reconnect to nature, by hiking with a guide in the rainforest, and discover hidden, yet spectacular waterfalls and caves.
