We all have different hobbies. While some of us would rather stay in the house with good music, good food, and a book or movie, others will feel better while sampling what nature has to offer. Adventure is what they love most and traveling is what they spend their free time doing. Others will be comfortable with either of the above. This is what makes each one of us unique and you don’t need to compromise this in order to fit in.

Now if you are a woman, and you want to have some me-time, there a few places that you can go. You know that time of the year when you feel overwhelmed by things, these are the perfect places to visit. They offer a serene environment for relaxing and refresh your mind, while at the same time offering safety for a solo traveler. They include:

1. Costa Rica

Are you a yoga junkie looking to sample something incredible beyond what you are used to? If yes, then Costa Rica is the place to be. From the jungles to the sandy beaches, this place offers the perfect package. Depending on the mood you are in, Costa Rica has just the activities for you. Also, you can enjoy the city life in San Jose.

2. Thailand


Located in the southeast of Asia, Thailand is the home for all partying. Specifically, the place to visit for this is Phuket. Phuket is Thailand’s largest island and the hub of all adventure. From beaches to five-star resorts, you definitely want to visit this place. The party scene is unrivaled and perfect especially if you are looking to make some friends. Did you know that there’s street food here which is unbelievably sweet? Oh well, now you know. Another thing to note is that it offers a perfect destination for both the well off and others. You know what I mean.

3. Iceland

What most people worry about often, especially if they are traveling alone, is language barriers between them and the locals. Yes and safety. Well, in Iceland, these two issues are put into consideration more than anything else. To start with, most of the locals here can converse perfectly in English. At the same time, crime is an alien word to them.The spa treatments are amazing and the country is beautiful. The only downside is Iceland is a bit more expensive than most places. Actually, it’s the world’s fourth most expensive city. But it’s a worth deal at the end of the day.

4. New Zealand

New Zealand
Ever heard of the saying “beauty to behold”? That is the perfect description for this country. From the landscapes to the beaches, everything here is stunning. In addition, you can participate in fun activities such as hiking, Milford sound by helicopter and jet boating in Mt. Aspiring.

5. Bali

When I think of Bali, what comes into my mind is affordability. It offers a place to have fun while at the same time ensuring you don’t suffer financially later on. Solo female travelers enjoy this place mostly because you get to learn a new culture, and you are guaranteed of making a few friends. The yoga here is incredible and the temples, don’t even get me started. The food is also great and affordable too.

6. Sweden


This is the land of fashion and beautiful people. In addition, the locals converse in English and boasts as one of the safest countries in the world. For fashion enthusiasts, this is the place to be. A surprising thing is that the World Happiness Report named it among the 5 happiest places in the world. This might be because of the sweet food found here. No? Oh well, either way, it is a perfect place to visit alone.

7. Canada

The landscapes in Canada are breathtaking. Feel free to visit parks such as Banff National Park. Also, the people there are friendly so you can be sure at no time will you be bored. Make friends, have fun while at it.

Amsterdam is majorly associated with liberal lifestyle and super chilled out vibe. The culture, the nightlife, and canals are some of the things you can look forward to when visiting this place. The experience is super and you will enjoy your vacation to the fullest.
