So, you’ve decided to go on a trip on your own for the first time, but still not certain of where to go? No worries, we’ve prepared a list of the best destinations for solo travellers where you are sure to make some unforgettable memories. P.S. Don’t forget to snap some pics and write travel memoirs on the way!
Hop onto Hong Kong
For a truly different experience, Hong Kong is a promising destination. Just by hopping on the Ding Ding tram you will get a taste of a different culture, and soon enough you will find yourself mesmerized at every corner. Lion Dances and Dragon Parades are just some of the street shows you can encounter, and if you visit the Kung Fu Corner on a Sunday you can also get a chance to learn some kung fu skills from the masters of the art themselves.
Hong Kong is known for its hospitable locals who will greet you with a smile every time, even if they don’t understand a word you say. They will also try selling you some food (especially if you are in the market zone) and you should never say “no”. Hong Kong street food is absolutely to die for, and as soon as you try your very first dim sum or a portion of dumplings, you will understand why that is so.
Adventures in Canada
If you are looking for an adventure, then you shouldn’t skip putting Canada. The rocky road to Yellowknife will certainly be an unforgettable experience, especially if you’re lucky enough to catch the magnificent Aurora Borealis. You can take pictures and enjoy the breathtaking views around Maligne Lake, or try a scenic drive along the Icefields Parkway to Lake Louise. The evergreen forests and the enchanting wildlife will definitely leave you in awe. Make sure you book your tour of Canada and Alaska before it’s too late because we guarantee you’re not the only one interested.
There are also some more luxurious options for those of you who wish for more comfort. A monthly long cruise of Canada and it’s neighbour island with stunning scenery all the way from the Glacier Bay to Niagara Falls is a trip worth every penny.
The romantic French coast
The first destination that pops up in our minds when we think of France is most often Paris, which is truly a fabulous place to visit when you come to France for the first time, but we would recommend something different. Although the city of love has its monumental touristic value, the French Riviera tends to be underestimated. The trademark stunning blue waters of Côte d’Azur stick with you forever, because you can rarely witness such a pure colour elsewhere. You can explore this dreamy coastline all the way to the Italian border beginning with the luxurious Saint Tropez and ending with Manton.
It’s best if you plan your visit to the French Riviera during spring because that’s when it’s least crowded, so that you can really enjoy every moment without all the noise and the fuss. Another honourable mention in France is Normandy, known for its fairytale Châteaux of the Loire Valley where you can’t help but imagine what life would be like if you were of blue blood just for a day.
Exotic sounds of Tahiti
For those of you who wish to see how life goes on with music and waves by your side throughout the whole day, then Tahiti is just the right place for you. If you follow the sound of the ukulele, it will lead you straight to the natives who work, relax, play, celebrate and do everything else alongside music. Since Western music has influenced Tahitian music for many decades now, you can hear some intriguing funky mixes and try learning to play the ukulele yourself.
Right after you learn a few chords (which is really easy on four strings), you can ask locals to help you find your way to bungalows that are a true trademark of Tahiti. If you have ever dreamt of spending hot summer days in an open-air home with waves putting you to sleep, then be sure this can be a dream come true when you find yourself in the exotic Tahiti.
Since there’s no need to waste more time, just pick your destination and get ready to fly off on your own. There’s no need to be scared – whichever destination you choose, you are surely in for a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Head on to Travel Department to help you plan that next trip.“
