Top Destinations For The Solo Traveller

Traveling by solo no longer carries the same stigma that it once did. In fact, more and more people are discovering that traveling alone offers them the freedom to explore places on their own terms. There are many places that are friendly to solo travellers. If you are interested in travelling by yourself and want some destinations tips, these are just a few of the highlights that I have personally come across on my solo travels.

Tokyo, Japan

If you want to experience all that Tokyo has to offer, you need several days at least. Why not explore the delicious tempura, ramen, and sushi – all better than anything you have ever tasted before. If you want someone who speaks your language, make sure that you travel to Roppongi, the Pink Cow bar there is renowned for the number of expats who regularly travel here. There is so much to do in Tokyo, and you are constantly surrounded by other people, making this an amazing city to visit.

When traveling to Masai Mara, you will quickly realize how nature has a way of making people connect with one another. The safaris that you find here are truly spectacular. You can also get an instant set of friends thanks to the countless Jeep safaris that there are on offer. If you want to witness the Great Migration, make sure that you travel here between June and October. The movement of millions of wildebeests is truly spectacular to behold.

Santiago, Chile

Santiago is constantly raved about by travelers for its beautiful public spaces, excellent restaurants, and advanced transportation networks. Santiago blends perfectly between offering an accessible, sophisticated, and authentic South American city.

The rewards of traveling alone

Solo travel might appear intimidating at first, but trust me when I tell you, it can be extremely rewarding. Especially when you find that you are able to travel solo, chances are that you will not only appreciate the freedom that it offers, but also appreciate the way that it empowers you in your individuality.
