Bali

Although Bali, Indonesia can sometimes have a reputation for being wild with partygoers dancing late into the night, there are many areas where solo travelers can sit back, relax and have a good time in paradise. Whether you love to chill on a picturesque beach, enjoy meeting locals, immersing in the culture, or simply wish to laze around at a five-star resort, Bali is the spot for you!

Lisbon

Portugal’s sunny capital city is a great spot for solo travellers. It’s been revitalized and refreshed in recent years with empty buildings filled with innovative boutiques and lively restaurants filling the old spaces. You’ll find glamourous rooftop bars and quirky thrift stores throughout the city centre. Lisbon remains one of Western Europe’s cheapest cities to visit and also one of the most beautiful. The capital of Portugal is definitely a great city to wander around, getting lost in your own thoughts.

Seville

Seville is easy to navigate by foot and one can wander around Seville, taking in its colorful ceramics on restaurant facades. Explore your way through street arcs, doorway borders, street signs, and fresh markets. Seville is a photographer’s dream of a lovely Spanish town. Don’t miss Maria Louisa Park with its fountains, ceramic benches, and balustrades. As the site of the 1929 World’s Fair, one-half mile of orange trees and Mediterranean pines form a canopy, providing shade during the summer months. You’ll also see ponds, flower beds, statues, and pavilions scattered about. If you want to see something special, walk the Triana Bridge and get panoramic views of the city which are especially beautiful at night.

London

London is a bustling metropolis, which means as a solo traveler, you will always find something to do or see. The city is filled with tradition, culture, excitement, adventure, and the classic British charm. The English capital is easily one of the best and most visited European destinations. London is a big city, and like all big cities it has traffic, so getting between places can take a bit of time. That’s why the best way to get around London is the Underground, or “the Tube.” Be sure to buy an Oyster card at the station, so that you can reload with fares and use on both the Tube and city buses.

Rotterdam

Considering taking a trip to Rotterdam? Rotterdam is a great city to discover on foot and there’s also a good metro system in Rotterdam when you get tired of walking. Rotterdam is a fun-filled exciting city. Far from an old Dutch city, Rotterdam is alive, bustling, and always changing. Here, you can enjoy the cool atsmophere, and go sightseeing and take it the stunning architecture and electric city scene.

Malta
This small European island is a great country for solo travellers. It is a year-round destination and all year round you’ll find tourists here throughout as people come to enjoy the pleasant climate on offer here. The locals are really friendly and are proud of their culture and have many festivals to show off their local heritage. With friendly inhabitants who speak English and a good bus network, solo travel in Malta is easy.

Medellin

Locals call Medellín the “city of the eternal spring.” It is beautiful, historical and an exciting city to visit. The weather is lovely all year round and there are so many opportunities for culture and adventure here! Medellín is also famously the old headquarters of drug lord Pablo Escobar, whose Medellín cartel ruled the country in the ‘80s and early ‘90s. At one point, the city earned the distinction of being the world’s most dangerous city. But as the drug trade waned, and with a new metro system developed, the turnaround has been dramatic. Medellín is today one of the safest cities in the country, and has earned its status as “comeback city of the century.”

Whenever I go somewhere new, I automatically ask myself “Could I live here?” ✨ :: Places like the Amalfi coast are absolutely stunning, but I could never actually live here. To me, there’s a clear difference between places you want to visit vs. live. In my opinion, it all comes down to: :: ✨ Cost: Can I afford to live here? I lived in Medellin on $1500 a month all in :: ✨Weather – I left Chicago winters for a reason! Plus, nice weather makes it easier to pack :: ✨Community: Is there a community of expats, digital nomads or people that I could be friends with? (Or cute dogs like this photo with @eastonofthewild) :: ✨Cafes with good WiFi: I love doing work from a cafe and make that my place of work for most of my days :: All of these are the main reasons I started my working/living abroad in Medellin, Colombia ✨💕 :: :: :: :: :: #medellin #solotravel #femaletravel #travelblogger #blog #travel #traveling #travels #travelfar #solo #sheisnotlost #passport #passportstamps #passportheavy #girlswhottravel #womenwhotravel #menwhotravel #dametraveler #igtravel #igtraveler #travelersnotebook #traveler #igers #laptoplifestyle #digitalnomad #digitalnomads #globalcitizenfestival #globaltrotter

Beijing

Beijing is the capital city of China and one of the favourites of solo travellers. You’ll absolutely love the food, the sights and more importantly, the rate of progress in this bustling city. There is no lack of luxury hotels here in Beijing but deciding on where to stay will depend on where you would like to be and also how much you are willing to spend. You simply cannot go to Beijing and not check out one of the New Seven Wonders of the World – the Great Wall of China. The breathtaking manmade structure was built to keep out the invading Mongols and the entire wall spans over thousands of kilometres.

Another huge highlight for us – as most of you know – was camping on the Great Wall of China. Writing the book made me reminisce and really think about what these adventures gave Emmie and me, and while there was so much that we learned, the most enduring experiences for me are the ones we both had for the very first time. 💕✨💕 . While I’d been to the Great Wall before I’d never climbed it here at Jiankou and never, ever camped on it. It was a first for both of us and we had this incredible, almost other-worldly experience together. It was the best!!! Do you feel the same? 💕🌱🌸 [Also we climbed with @chinahiking and it was affordable, fun, professional and we just love Heidi, so go with them if you’re planning to camp on the amazing wall]
