Do you live alone and you love it, but when it comes to traveling, you like to see places and have an even more complete experience? Traveling alone gives you total autonomy. You can decide where you are going, when, what to do in each place and, above all, if you want to join the paths with someone, share a part of the route and, who knows, return home with someone. If you are single and looking for destinations for singles, you’ve come to the right place. Here, we have made a selection for you with the best travel destinations for singles.
- Bali, Indonesia
Rice fields, temples, beaches, surfing, good vibes … The so-called “Island of the Gods” is a perfect destination for single travelers who want to enjoy good weather. There is a lot to do in Bali. Still, the most important thing is that it offers you the ideal environment to enjoy a solo trip (have you thought about making a yoga retreat in the purest style of the movie ‘Eat, pray, love’? ) and to meet other travellers. A great combination can be spending a few days in the Ubud area, getting to know the rice plantations, waterfalls and temples with a motorcycle. Moving to other parts to the south of the island that is more fun such as roll younger, surfing or backpacker is also good, as it offers more accommodation aimed at those single travelers who want to meet people.
- Brussels and its surroundings, Belgium
If you want to make a getaway, one of the destinations for singles that we recommend is Brussels. Admiring the beauty of the Grand-Place, eating a warm waffle watching the famous Manneken Pis statue, discovering the secrets of the comic book route or visiting nearby charming cities such as Ghent or Bruges are enough excuses to get closer to this European corner. But, in addition, it is possible to find a lot of low-cost flights to the Belgian capital and book accommodation at a reasonable price, among which are youth hostels. There the good vibes and the opportunities to meet other travelers are guaranteed.
- Miami, United States
Welcome to Miami! This crazy city in the state of Florida can be a perfect destination for singles if you want to spend a few days at the beach and party or perhaps embark on a somewhat more extended trip through the United States, but starting on the right foot. The city with the most Latin flavor awaits you with white sand beaches bathed in turquoise waters. Once you get there, do not hesitate, as there are multiple possibilities to meet people and have a good time. One of the best things to do in Miami is walking down Ocean Drive and enjoy its great atmosphere. Any day of the week and at almost any time, you will find bars and clubs with people to share a good time with and, if you feel like it, forge a friendship.
- Amsterdam, the Netherlands
We turn to move to Europe to talk to another singles destination for an ideal getaway. Amsterdam is a perfect city to spend a couple of days visiting its main attractions: the Van Gogh Museum, Dam Square, Vondelpark or the Anne Frank House. However, it has made us include it in this list for its carefree atmosphere.
In the Dutch capital, you will always find a jumble of people wanting to have fun and meet other travelers. In the pubs and coffee shops of the Red Light District and the Jordaan, you can enjoy good conversations and immerse yourself a little more in the life of the inhabitants of the city.
- Riviera Maya, Mexico
Do you feel like going to the beach? Do not hesitate. One of the best destinations for singles is the Mexican Riviera Maya. Find a flight to Cancun and take the first bus to Playa del Carmen. There you will find affordable accommodation around Fifth Avenue, the best-known shopping and entertainment street in all of this part of Mexico. If you are looking to party and meet other singles, book a hostel with a pool in the area, you will appreciate those micheladas in the company. In Riviera Maya, you have a massive deck of possibilities: from bathing in paradisiacal beaches like Xpu-Há or Xcacel, swimming with turtles in Akumal or diving in cenotes like Dos Ojos, even strolling through centuries-old ruins like those of Tulum or Chichen Itzá. In company or alone? You choose because the possibilities of joining other travelers in Riviera Maya go even below the stones.
- Cruise the Greek Islands, Greece
Have you ever thought about going on a cruise? Although this way of traveling is often associated with a certain age range or a specific type of traveler (families, retirees …), the truth is that more and more people are encouraged to try the experience. Many agencies offer destinations for singles to visit with a cruise, and we cannot think of a better one than the one that runs through the Greek Islands. Enjoy epic sunrises over the Mediterranean from your cabin, have conversations in the pool on the side, discover the most photogenic corners of islands such as Crete, Rhodes or Santorini, take a dip or join one of the famous Mykonos parties.
Is it your first solo trip? Do not hesitate, the best of these destinations for singles that we have told you about is Thailand. Whether you want to go backpacking or on a slightly looser budget, the Asian country offers you great opportunities to live new experiences and meet other travelers. Travel the north and soak up Thai culture in cities like Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai; rent a motorcycle and make friends in Pai, the most charming town in the country; Jump onto the islands in the Gulf and spend a few days learning to dive off Koh Tao, Thailand’s most backpacking island. If you want to party, do not hesitate, yours is the Full Moon Party on the neighboring island, Koh Phangan. Give yourself at least 15 days in Thailand and enjoy the best destination for singles.
