It is probably fair to say that being single often meant no annual summer holiday on a beach at some lush resort unless you were with a group of other single friends. What if all your friends were not single and/or didn’t have the money or time to go on holiday, what would you do? Not go? Even if you did go would you really want to be on holiday with families and couples? Where one or two week holidays were reserved for parties of 2+ it was backpacking that emerged as a great way to travel as a single person. However, not everyone can take more than a week off and not everyone likes the idea of backpacking so thankfully, the increase in top destinations for single travellers to go on holiday is very much welcomed by all.
Amsterdam – I’m not suggesting anything related to red light district/being single etc. Amsterdam is just a super cool place with a great vibe and plenty of like-minded people around. The options are endless, join a bike tour round the city, visit the museums, check out the architecture, try out the eclectic mix of restaurants. If you want some time to your self but with plenty to do Amsterdam is perfect but if want the option to meet fellow travellers you certainly won’t be short of chances. There are some great, central hotels as well with communal areas offering tea & coffee in the mornings which are a great way of chatting to people and finding out some top places to go.
USA – If you have the budget for a week away then go for a city break in the USA. It’s a real treat, you don’t have to worry about the language, there are plenty of single travellers (whether for leisure or business) and they love, love, love the British accent so if you want a little bit of a fling during your holiday your chances are high. Although New York would be the obvious choice, Boston, Seattle, Miami and Los Angeles would all be top options for something a little different.
Eastern Europe – For a week long beach holiday try out the Black Sea and either Croatia or Bulgaria. You can currently get cheap options for a week long all-inclusive holiday and can easily take a day trip somewhere if you feel like exploring. Unlike other European beach destinations which may be family orientated or 18-30 style trips, the beaches in Eastern Europe are still fairly up and coming so you are more likely to be surrounded by like-minded travellers.
Agean Cruise – You get the mediterranean sun, the chance to see a few different places and the luxury of being on a cruise. Agean cruises come in all shapes and sizes from party boats, to larger 5* boats, to smaller boutique cruises. Therefore the options for single travellers are great. You can meet people during dinner or excursions or you can opt for some time to yourself. People enjoy cruises for the social side of things so they are a great way to holiday without feeling quite so solo.
Just writing this blog has got me itching to book a holiday! As far as I’m concerned as a single traveller the world is your oyster, and we have all seen those screaming rows from couples who have had enough of each other during their holidays, but if you aren’t sure then these holidays are a good place to start. Get in touch if you have any other top destinations or tips for single travellers.
