The world is like a plate of candies when you travel alone. You have thousands of amazing places to visit and things to see which would have been unreachable during a group or family travel.
In our opinion, you can make a whole round-the-world voyage alone and have a great time. However, if you want just to go to one place as a solo adventurer (preferably safe for an alone tourist) and have the time of your life, please, keep reading.
Today we will take an imaginary journey to the best places to travel solo and find out what you can do there. Are you intrigued already?
Best cities for solo travel
The city of art and museums: Amsterdam
Amsterdam is one of the most travel-friendly cities on this crazy planet. Tons of tourists from all over the world come to Amsterdam to dive into Dutch culture, visit many outstanding museums and enjoy the unique culture.
The city has an excellent transportation system, and it is a joy to travel around it. In addition, it is easy to get to other Dutch cities from Amsterdam, so you get a dozen at the price of one!
The city of the best food: Rome
Choosing only one of the many magnificent cities in Italy is just cruel. However, if we had to, we would absolutely choose Rome.
A massive amount of museums and landmarks, amazing architecture and the best food in the whole world! And don’t even get me started on nature: the city is located just off the Mediterranean Sea!
In Rome, you will feel the heart of modern civilization and many cultures mixed in this magnificent city. It truly has it all, so if you can visit only one destination: go to Rome!
The city of stunning architecture: Belgrade
Belgrade is one of the most underrated cities in Europe. It is a fantastic solo destination, and you can find many fun things to do in Belgrade. From the Nikola Tesla Museum to amazing waterside promenades: the city has many amazing things to offer to tourists.
The jewel of this city, though, is undoubtedly its architectural landmarks. St Mark’s Church, Gardoš Tower, Church of St Sava, and Kalemegdan fortress are just breathtaking, and they represent only a tiny amount of unique architectural gems around the city.
The city of dragons: Dubrovnik
Dubrovnik was once a movie star because it appeared in the Game of Thrones as a famous city, King’s Landing. Its historical part with numerous priceless buildings is now on the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites.
If you are a solo traveler, you will have a great time walking through Stradun, Dubrovnik’s main street, visiting The Franciscan Monastery, and tasting amazing Croatian food in the old city.
The city of dazzling lights: Las Vegas
Las Vegas is not only for gambling. Well, you can, of course, do that, but going to the city of lights just for it will be a mistake. If you love hiking, we highly recommend you to go to The Red Rock Canyon and lose yourself in its beautiful nature.
Also, the city has the coolest museums, an aquarium with dolphins, and indulgent meals to satisfy the biggest foodie.
The city of urban culture: New York
New York is one of the most diverse and vibrant cities in the world. Yes, it can seem like a weird choice for a solo trip, but it is a true jewel of urban traveling and visiting it is a must.
The mix of different cultures in New York creates a very colorful canvas of various foods, landmarks, and architectural places. This city is not like any other one, but it still looks familiar. We really can’t describe how awesome NY is, but you can observe it with your own eyes.
The city of festivals: Dublin
Our favorite city in the whole world! Dublin is an emerald in the crown of Ireland and the city of free people. It is the hometown of the oldest pub in the world, and the landmark in itself, thanks to all those medieval buildings.
It also goes by the name of UNESCO City of Literature because of its fantastic James Joyce Bloomsday Festival and fascinating Museum of Modern Literature.
Of course, many travelers go to Dublin to taste the best beer in the Guinness Storehouse and visit one of the numerous pubs with an authentic medieval feel. Dublin is a city of the most genuine people, and we love coming back there every time.
Useful tips for solo travelers
Traveling alone can be both exciting and scary, so you need to be prepared for anything that can happen. First of all, always have your phone with a good international plan to be reachable everywhere.
Next, buy the best travel insurance to be absolutely safe in case of an emergency. Lastly, always make copies of your documents in case you have lost the originals to have the option to identify yourself.
Now let’s move from cautionary travel tips to fun ones. While you travel, capture as much of your experiences as you can to have these memories forever. If you are blessed with shaky little hands, use the best video stabilizer software to make the video more smooth and professional-looking. Remember: you can make these memories only once.
You can even edit these videos on the road with WeVideo, or Magix, or any other video editor to share them on Instagram with your friends. After all, if you didn’t post it on Instagram, did it really happen?
Being a solo traveler is about making new experiences, enjoying your trips, and having the whole world as your trip buddy.
If you love traveling and still hesitate to do it on your own, go to one of the cities from our list and fully dive into the unbearable lightness of being a solo tourist. Good luck!
