Asia is one of the easiest places to get started on your solo travel journey, and we’re not even talking about seedy singles holidays or singles vacations! The people are friendly and welcoming, the weather is warm in most parts all year round and you’ll meet lots of like minded travellers on solo holidays so you’ll never feel alone! Plus, you’ll be rewarded with the opportunity to explore breathtaking temples, waterfalls, dense rainforests and tropical beaches across the region.
South East Asian countries like Thailand and Japan are among the best places to travel alone in Asia. Thailand is a travellers dream, with white sand beaches, delicious local cuisine, buzzing nightlife and a thriving backpacker culture. Japan, a juxtaposition of space age technology and carefully preserved tradition, is the ideal destination for solo female travel. Not only is it safe and organised, solitude is a way of life there.
From sushi trains to ramen booths, eating alone is the norm in Japan. Going on holiday alone is a great way to break free from the everyday and immerse yourself in the local culture; however, if you’re worried about language barriers and getting around, why not join a tour? Joining a tour gives you the confidence to visit countries with significant cultural differences and travel further off the beaten track, to destinations generally considered for the more seasoned traveller – like solo travel in India, or solo travel in China.
