The Top 5 Destinations for Solo Travelers

Some of the most memorable experiences of a lifetime can occur if you visit a destination alone. Keeping this in mind, what are the top five spots in the world to experience solo? Here are some locations you can explore single-handedly in your next travel itinerary.

Barcelona, Spain

Straddling the azure blue waters of the Mediterranean Sea, Barcelona is a haven for anyone traveling alone. This arises from the fact that the city itself offers endless hours of entertainment. From the majestic Tibidabo Cathedral to the eclectic passage known as Las Ramblas, any visitor will be able to get around the city without the need of a companion or two.

Bangkok, Thailand

Bangkok has been known as a backpacker’s haven for some time now. Partially due to incredibly generous exchange rates and a variety of attractions for any type of traveler, the entire country has attracted visitors from abroad for years. When we combine these features with a balmy climate, 24/7 entertainment for locals and foreigners alike, and a rather hospitable culture, it is plain to understand why Bangkok is a hot spot for millions of solo backpackers.

Costa Rica

It would be unfair to claim that one city is better than another in this lush tropical paradise. Costa Rica is perfectly suited for solo travelers who want to get closer to nature and experience a bit of adventure on the side. The locals are extremely accommodating and the exchange rates are not bad, either. Whether you are searching for spiritual seclusion within a jungle or hoping to meet like-minded souls during your single holidays, this country will not disappoint.

Hong Kong, China

Hong Kong has become known for its eclectic nightlife and dazzling skyline, but there is still a very traditional feel to this massive city. The city is considered to be quite safe for foreigners, so you do not need to worry about your security if you stick to the tourist- friendly areas.  Above all, any visitor will be able to take a break from the hustle of city life, thanks to relaxing open-air parks and Tai Chi classes.

Cuzco, Peru

For solo travelers, one of the most appealing aspects of this city is that it is not nearly as famous as other destinations in Peru. Thus, one can expect to become immersed into a local culture that can only be described as timeless. The famous ruins of Machu Picchu are but a handful of kilometers away from the city itself. Agreeable exchange rates and a welcoming culture are two other benefits to be considered.
