Top Destinations To Travel In Solo
Who would’ve believed that ? The Colombia is one of the best destinations to do solo. Why ? Well, because the country will satisfy the rats of the cities as those of the fields: with on one side, natural sites more magnificent than the others and on the other, cities full of life, music, culture and the unique atmosphere. So, that you decide to go hiking in the Andes, to take a look at the salt mine of Nemocón, to enjoy the sun on its beaches of dreams, difficult to get bored even alone!
In recent years, the country has experienced a real change and developed a lot of things while maintaining its original temperament, traditions and landscapes to fall. Most of the backpackers who choose Nepal, aim to participate in the Holi Festival, a wonderful celebration of color and life. Another tip that travelers often have at the top of their list is to try a local drink called “bhang”. Attention, it’s very very strong!
The Indonesia is just perfect if you have in mind to go alone. After following the hectic pace of Jakarta, get out of town and take a well-deserved break, lazing on one of the turquoise beaches. If you decide to go to Bali, do not forget to visit Ubud, the spiritual and cultural heart of the island. Rent a bike or a scooter (for the more adventurous!) And go to discover the surroundings. Lovers of photography and crazy fans of Instagram, you will be delighted: under your amazed eyes, picturesque rice paddies, a volcano to climb and forest with monkeys!
Sometimes in Iceland, one has the impression of being an explorer discovering a virgin territory of any civilization. There are, no doubt, few experiences comparable to the observation of the aurora borealis (better period between December and February) or in the discovery of beautiful small waterfalls that seem to punctuate the whole of this country that has everything of a giant national park. We advise you to try absolutely its local beer and go to visit the geysers and glaciers which are absolutely not something overrated! And if you are lucky, you may even see whales up close! Youth hostels and flights are totally affordable making it a paradise for racing pigeons!
The Cambodia seems to be made only lil natural gems and architectural beauties! To do worse than absolutely: the temples of Angkor, soak up the culture and magical atmosphere of the place. It’s an absolutely unique destination that offers plenty of opportunities to think outside the box. Plus, it has a pretty active backpacker community with lots of great tips! Prepare for the adventure !!
The Canadian has more to offer than its big cities. Yeah, 90% of the country is either breathtaking landscapes, national parks or mountains or lakes! The perfect opportunity to land and enjoy life. Of course, Niagara Falls is a must-see, as is the incredible Banff National Park (Alberta) where the Rocky Mountains will just amaze you. Also to do the Nahanni Park Reserve.
The Olympics of Rio 2016 are past but hey, Brazil is Just two hours from Rio is Ilha Grande, a tropical paradise with beaches and forests that look too good to be true. Another corner to visit absolutely: the Iguazu Falls! Brazil is just a combo of dream beaches, colonial architecture, and wilderness, we find all these aspects concentrated in the city of Arraial da Ajuda (between the cities of Rio and Salvador). Located at the top of a hill, it’s just the perfect spot to make your followers on Instagram completely jealous!
8. Sri Lanka
The Sri Lanka has managed to retain an authentic culture in spite of tourism, which is why it is the perfect destination for those who want to go alone adventure. Sigyria, which many consider to be the eighth wonder of the world, is to be seen, one suspects, absolutely, just like the golden temple of Dambulla. As long as you are there, why not take the opportunity to surf on the Indian Ocean?
Woké, we seem to be pushing an open door with this destination, but honestly, Australia is undoubtedly one of the countries to be at the top of your To Do list. Wild landscapes, endless beaches, modern cities, beating nights, a time to fall … what else do you need? Obviously, the Great Barrier Reef is a classic just like Uluru and Rose Lake. Welcome to Paradise !
Who said you needed to go to the other side of the globe to live an epic adventure? For those who are based in Europe, Spain has some of the most pleasant spots to visit when you are alone. Moreover, the country is recognized as one of the best destinations in the world to do solo (ouep, just that!). Each city has a distinct culture and atmosphere. The youth hostels are to die for, the food is to die faint of pleasure and it is literally impossible to be bored! WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR ?!!
