Top destinations for solo travel worldwild
I dream of escaping, for a moment, from my monotonous daily life. I close my eyes and imagine myself somewhere else: lying on a deserted beach with the warm sand under my feet, then on top of a mountain with the wind tickling the tip of my nose.
I'm determined to fly away to discover different walks of life, but the problem is that Sabrina, my best friend, still hasn't scheduled her vacations, so we can’t choose our destination and see where the wind will take us.
What if I travel on my own?
After all, lots of women are doing it these days and many of them are writing incredible testimonials about their travels and even tips to organise your first solo trip. Discovering new horizons with only your backpack on your shoulders, that must be an amazing experience.
I have read several articles on the internet and I listened my desires and dreams. If, just like me, you want to start your first solo trip, or if you already did it, I invite you to discover my best destinations to travel solo in the world, combining safety and security, but also the discovery of new cultures and heritages.
It's time for me to take the plunge. Let's travel solo!
Japan : my favorite place of the best destinations to travel solo in the world
The country where the sun rises and where its culture and modernity are linked with tradition, it is a place to go at least once in your life. I have to say that, as a fan of manga, I can't really be very objective on this destination. And now that I've read Christina's testimony about her travels as an Asian woman, I'm determined to go there too.
Japan is a paradise for solo travelers, which is why it is one of the best destinations to travel solo in the world. Whether it's the subways or the train, they are so clean that you could eat on the floor. Personally, I don't plan to try it, but it's still good to know! Moreover, it's a safe country for women: for instance, the train companies have set up cars especially for us. No more suspicious looks or inappropriate gestures from you gentlemen, finally. There are also very few, if any, physical assaults.
Unlike some destinations, the season does not matter because it will always be a good time to discover the country. During spring time, you can admire the cherry blossoms in parks and gardens. During summer, it’s the season of festivals and each one is more colorful than the other. During winter, the extravagant illuminations of the streets will dazzle you. But personally, I would choose to go there in autumn to admire its golden and orange colors that are so particular. It is also the least touristy season, which would allow me to appreciate even more the serenity of this country.
Meeting with the kiwis of New Zealand
The island is also called Aoetearoa in Maori or the land of the long white cloud. It's a nice comparison, I think. I can already imagine myself in the Northland region, walking barefoot on its beaches that go on forever and on its paradise bay with 144 islands. It's a sight to behold.
In addition to its breathtaking views, New Zealanders are known for being very welcoming and caring: I've read many testimonials from female travelers who are fond of the locals: "They immerse us in their distinctive culture and provide unforgettable experiences." And for solo female travelers in particular, this is the place to be, especially if it's your first time.
Everything small is exquisite, like Singapore
For those who are traveling solo for the first time and who are afraid of insecurity just like me, don't panic, security is the government's priority. There are surveillance cameras everywhere in the city. It can look a bit like Big Brother, but at least you know you are safe.
What is also good to know is that Singapore is a very clean country. My colleague Charline who stayed there for ten days told me that she had never seen a city that is so well maintained. She even told me that they had set up a cleaning day: hundreds of Singaporeans are volunteers to clean the streets of the city. Mr. Clean has to be on his toes.
Welcome to France, the country of baguette
France has been the world's first touristic destination for years, and many travelers are attracted to it. Obviously, when people think of this country, the first thing that comes to mind is Paris, the city of lovers, its architecture, its art, its iconic history. As a proud Frenchwoman, I think you might be surprised to see what other regions we have to offer. They all have their own culture, and that's why my country is so rich.
And then, France is also the food capital of the world, which means superb gastronomy with a great diversity of tastes and specialties: tartiflette, beef bourguignon, crêpes, quiche lorraine... I won't give you the whole list, it could take a while. But in any case, I am already licking my lips.
Let's conquer Canada, the second-largest country in the world
Canada is a large country in North America and offers a lot of possibilities for its travelers. This country is in my list of the best destinations to travel solo in the world because I love being outside, and Canada is the place to be for people like me: more than 40 national parks and nature reserves are located there. Mountains, rivers, glaciers and coastlines, you won't know where to start, and neither will I. I just want to take my backpack and jump on the plane. As someone who takes her entire house with her when she goes on a trip, I'm going to have to look for tips for a 7 kg backpack.
It’s up to you now!I don't know about you, but I really want to go somewhere else and immerse myself in a new culture that is completely different from mine. The choice was difficult, but I will let myself be tempted by a good sushi dish in Japan. In order to feel completely free and comfortable, I will follow the 8 tips for shy solo female travelers.
