Hottest (Best) Destinations for Solo Travelers

The best part of traveling solo? You get to do what you want and when you want to do it! The adventure is solely yours and no one else. Whether you are looking for guidance for your first solo trip or are an experienced solo traveler, the single most important aspect of your vacation is the destination. To get you started, we created a list of five hot destinations for solo travelers to consider.

Solo Travelers


Best for adventure: Thailand

It is no surprise that Thailand is rated one of the best destinations for solo travelers looking for a sense of adventure. From white sand beaches to smokey mountains and packed city streets – they have got it all! Bangkok is one of the most popular cities to explore in Thailand (the street food is a must)! Not to mention, you can find national parks in the north and beaches in the south. Thailand is a little bit of everything.


Best for a beach vacation: Australia

Not only is Australia known for its friendly locals, but it is also known for a laid-back beach lifestyle with an endless coastline full of beautiful beaches – 10,500 to be exact. With casual bars, cafes, restaurants, and shops, we highly recommend visiting Sydney’s Bondi Beach. The famous beach buzzes from sunrise to sunset and is the perfect destination for solo travelers to visit any time of the year. Keep in mind that the day begins early at Bondi Beach, with the most beautiful sunrises over the ocean’s horizon!


Best for food: Italy

Thinking about taking a solo trip solely to discover only the finest cuisine? Add Italy to your bucket list. There is no shortage of opportunities to taste some of the most delicious and authentic Italian dishes. Grab some pizza in Rome, lasagna in Venice or risotto in Milan. If you are a true foody and you want to dive even deeper into the culture, we recommend taking your very own cooking class or luxury wine tasting tour in Tuscany. The possibilities are endless!


Best for city adventure: San Diego, California

From soaking up the sun at Pacific Beach to enjoying the nightlife in the Gaslamp Quarter, this captivating city has an incredible amount to do, see and explore for solo travelers. If you are looking for more of an adventure, check out one of San Diego’s nearby state parks! We recommended ending your day at Sunset Cliffs National Park to watch some of the most amazing sunsets fall behind the Pacific Ocean.
