Despite what many people may think, doing things alone doesn’t necessarily mean you’re lonely. In fact, it can be incredibly therapeutic and satisfying. For instance, a solo trip to a gallery can help you appreciate the art, and traveling by yourself can be an incredible opportunity for self-discovery and personal growth.
So, with that in mind, here are five of the best destinations for women to explore unaccompanied.
Queenstown is the place to go for an adrenalin-seeking solo traveler—activites range from high alpine treks to leisurely lakeside strolls. There’s also a cosmopolitan restaurant and arts scene, and excellent vineyards worth exploring.
Located on the coast of Denmark, Copenhagen is one of the safest (and prettiest) capital cities in Europe. It boasts low crime rates, cobbled, bike-friendly streets, sherbet-hued townhouses and a myriad of cafes. Plus, it’s easy to love the Danish way of life thanks to Hygge.
For an urban getaway full of food and culture, head to Melbourne to indulge in good coffee, world-class cuisine and a spot of shopping. Be sure to check out Flinders Lane, which is arguably Melbourne’s tastiest street.
Montreal, founded in 1642 as a French colonial fortress, is now a bilingual, and cosmopolitan city that thrives on cultural happenings. Take advantage of the robust art, music, and dining scenes, and eclectic shopping precincts.
Dublin is one of Europe’s most underrated cities. Expect a bustling, friendly city with a rich history. There’s plenty for all types of travelers to do and see, from historical sites to nightlife.
