Traveling solo can feel quite scary at first – especially if you are a woman, and especially if you never even considered doing it before. However, it can be done – and more than that, it can be a truly enjoyable experience too.
For example, what are some of the best places around the world for solo travels? We have gathered some suggestions – so read on and find out more.
Americans have been visiting this gorgeous place for decades – and not without reason. It is said this is one of the happiest countries on Earth – and we do tend to agree with this, especially considering the luxuriant vegetation, the superb land and waterscapes, as well the wide range of activities (suitable for everyone from grandma to the adventure-seeking surfer). Best part yet? Costa Rica (“The Rich Coast” in Spanish) is not only for the rich – it can be perfectly budget-friendly too!
Fascinating, weird, delicious and truly different in every respect, Japan is considered to be one of the safest places on Earth – which is quite unusual, considering how many people live and travel there. As hugely intimidating as Tokyo may seem though, it is rated as one of the safest big cities ever – even for a woman, even for a solo traveler. And if there’s one spot on this planet where you could never, ever be able to get bored, that’s definitely the capital city of Japan. In between the high-tech everything and the temples sprinkled around the city (some of which have been there since pretty much forever), Tokyo will be an unforgettable experience you will want to repeat over and over again.
Although not exactly budget-friendly, Austria is extremely tourist-friendly and it makes for a perfect destination for a solo traveler. Why, more exactly? Well, first of all, Vienna is one of the easiest to navigate cities in the entire world. It’s literally impossible to get lost there – but it’s highly probable that you’ll love the lingering spirit, the vibes filled with high and low-brow culture, and the amiable locals as well. Secondly, like most cities in Western Europe, Vienna is a highly safe city – so if that’s one of your primary concerns, you can rest assured that you won’t have to face your fears in this splendid city.
Like most of the Northern Countries, Iceland is a very safe place to visit as a solo traveler. Most of these places are highly equalitarian when it comes to men and women and the general vibe is that of cities that are fully safe (and extremely clean). Why are we suggesting Iceland, of all the Northern European destinations? For its uniqueness, for its special kind of beauty, and for its amazing tourist-friendly ambiance (there’s even a place called “The Laundromat Café” where you can do your laundry, have coffee and interact with other (solo) travelers). Worth visiting from all points of view – but even more so if you’re a fan of outdoor activities!
