It’s good to be able to relax your mind without anyone bothering you once in a while. Especially when you are planning on a trip without having the need to accommodate to others’ preferences. Experience your trip at your own pace. Here are some recommendations of places to visit for solo travelers.
First of all, traveling alone does not meant you have to be lonely. A place like Taiwan can be one of the top choices for the solo traveler. Taiwanese are known for their friendliness and warm hospitality. You can easily make some friends during the trip. If dining alone makes you feel lonely, try heading to the local night markets. The delicious food and atmosphere will make you feel like you’re at a festival, every night! Taiwan is also well known for the natural landscapes and parks. Simply choose a good day and time during the low season, and you will have all the serenity you need for your solo trip.
Similar to Taiwan, Japan is another top choice to visit due to the abundance of beautiful natural scenery, and the liveliness you can get from the city area. Osaka is definitely one of the best options for your solo comfort food treats. Osaka is known for their range and quality of food, the underground malls and its friendly locals. Of course, for those who do not understand Japanese, it will be more of an adventure. More research needs to be done if you intend to take the trains and buses. Be sure to note the proper entrance and exit you should take, and do ask around if you’re unsure.
For those with a tighter budget, Thailand offers an wide array of activities for solo travelers. Plan a yoga and meditation getaway to clear your mind, or embark on an sporty adventure with some trekking and exploration. Places like Phuket and Chiang Mai are great for yoga and spas. Though it might be a little crowded during the high seasons, hence you might want to schedule your solo trip during the lower season.
Do remember to always stay safe during a solo trip. Be sure to stay contactable, or inform the hotel/resorts of where you will be heading to beforehand. Valuables should be kept in the hotel safe if possible, and do keep the hotel’s contact and emergency numbers with you.
Yolo, so try Solo.
