You know those days when things are really getting you down: your work, your social life, your family. Uggh! That's when you just want to get away from it all, and not invite anyone along for the trip! We think it's time to stop fantasising and actually go for it, because there are some spectacular places which are perfect for solo trips. Here are our top recommendations:
1. Zurich, Switzerland - Culture Capital
Zurich is known as a financial hub and nothing more and that's where everyone is wrong. Zurich is an absolutely gorgeous city to visit and its landscape will take your breath away. Take a boat ride on Lake Zurich and you'll feel like you're in heaven! And if its immersion in culture that you're looking for, Zurich boasts of several art galleries and museums that will make for a knowledgeable vacation! You're going to make all your friends so jealous with your travel stories!
2. Dublin, Ireland - Beer Central
If you're a beer lover and you're planning a solo trip, why not choose Dublin? The drinks are going to be delicious and we promise you that you're going to make plenty of friends along the way. If you're strapped for cash, you can choose from among the many hostels in the city and travelling around will be a cinch since you can walk or rent a bike. If nothing else, just the food might make your trip worth it.
3. Shillong, India - Restful Retreat
Shillong in Meghalaya, India, may be one of the safest places to visit in India for the lone female traveller. And it's bound to be one hell of a vacation. It's not the most famous tourist destination in India, so you wont' have to deal with jostling crowds, its absolutely picturesque so not carrying your camera would be a sin, and it's affordable to boot! It's the perfect place to visit if you long to discover yourself and what you're truly made of. Find yourself, and have a great time doing it!
4. Amsterdam, The Netherlands - Safety first
Amsterdam, besides being famous for the high life (get it?), is an exceptionally safe city especially when it comes to solo female travellers. While the city offers everything on the list of things you wouldn't like to tell your parents (read: live sex shows, drugs etc), there is another side of the city that's meant for the traveller who wants a laidback vacation. Amsterdam boasts of several quiet places where you can truly relax: many parks, museums and canals. Are you ready for the relaxing vacation of your dreams?
5. Seoul, South Korea - Eventful Escape
This modern city will never bore you. There are so many things to do and many more to see! And the best part is that the city is absolutely affordable which is why it's so attractive for the solo traveller. Las Vegas can step aside, because Seoul also boasts of a bustling nightlife that's going to keep you on your feet through the night; and the food: Yum! There are spectacular Buddhist temples that you can visit too if you're in the mood for some reflection.
