Top 5 Destinations for First-Time Solo Travelers in 2024

24 June 2024 22:36 WIB

TEMPO.CO, JakartaSolo travel offers an unforgettable adventure, a chance to explore at your own pace and discover a newfound sense of independence. But for first-timers, choosing a destination can be daunting. 

Citing the Daily Mail, travel experts share the top 5 incredible spots that tick all the boxes for novice solo travelers: safety, friendly locals, and affordable options. Here's the list:

1. Tbilisi, Georgia

Travel Manager at Aditi, Helen Youngman, recommends Tbilisi, the capital of Georgia. This 1,500-year-old city sits at the crossroads of Europe and Asia and boasts a vibrant mix of cultures.  Explore the eclectic atmosphere with its charming old town, colorful Ottoman architecture, and friendly locals.

Helen, who runs a company specializing in solo traveling, suggests unwinding in a traditional sulfur bath or savoring local wines in a cozy underground bar. For accommodations, Rooms Hotel Tbilisi offers a beautifully restored base to explore the city's vibrant scene.

2. Santiago, Chile

Safety is paramount for first-time solo travelers. Nicky Kelvin, a travel expert from The Points Guy, recommends Santiago for this very reason. Nestled between the majestic Andes and coastal mountains, Santiago has one of the lowest crime rates in South America.

This vibrant city offers more than just urban charm. Venture beyond the city limits and ski the snow-capped peaks, trek through the otherworldly Atacama desert, or cycle through vineyards for a taste of Chilean wine.

4. Berlin, Germany

Nicky also suggests Berlin as a European haven for solo travelers. The German capital is known for its low crime rate, fantastic public transportation, and a high prevalence of English, making navigation a breeze. Berlin's progressive atmosphere makes it easy to feel welcome, regardless of your background.

Hostels and free walking tours abound in Berlin, perfect opportunities to meet fellow solo adventurers. Even a stroll through the city reveals a vibrant tapestry of public art to keep you entertained as you explore.

4. Melbourne, Australia

Lee Dobson, co-founder of Travel City, recommends Melbourne, Australia, for its dynamic culture, diverse landscapes, and friendly locals. Immerse yourself in the city's renowned street art scene, delve into the world of coffee connoisseurs, or soak up the festival vibes Melbourne is famous for.

Explore the National Gallery of Victoria, wander through charming laneways lined with unique shops and cafes, or relax in the Royal Botanic Gardens. If you feel adventurous, hop on a tram and explore the iconic Great Ocean Road or the Yarra Valley wine region.

5. Taipei, Taiwan

Nicky Kelvin from The Points Guy also recommends venturing to Asia for your adventure, specifically Taipei, Taiwan. Not only is Taipei safe for solo travelers, but it's also significantly cheaper than Tokyo, Japan.

Accommodations range from budget hostels to stylish boutiques and international hotel chains. Explore the city on free walking tours offered in many neighborhoods, or embark on a culinary adventure with a street food tour.
