I write this post as I am a frequent SOLO traveller and would like to encourage you gals and ladies to travel SOLO at least once in your lifetime. Please do read this article in ENTIRETY.
Y.O.L.O - you only live once. This is one of the main reasons why I decided to travel SOLO when I was 15 years old.
I still remember vividly it was after I gotten my O Levels results and just before my polytechnic school life starts. I bought a 5D4N Free And Easy package that consists of only air tickets and accommodation to Bangkok. I went to many places such as Grand Palace, Floating Market, MBK, and many more during my trip.
It is a total different experience when you travel solo. You get to plan where you wanna go, you set your own pace... I don't like to go with group tours (especially with travel agencies), because their pace is usually fast and although you get to go many places, but these places are usually too "touristy" and you never really get to savour the moment.
Yes, you saw it right. Savour the moment! This is one of the main reasons why I fall in love with SOLO travel. Savouring the moment is important in travelling because this is the main ingredient that gives you different sensations for each trip. Every trip's moments are different.
Some of you may think "it is not safe to travel alone". Yes, I do agree with it, but there are some countries that are solo travel-safe. And yes, you still need to be careful when you travel SOLO.
Some countries that I do recommend for solo travelling:
- South Korea
- Hong Kong
- Bangkok (Within City Area)
Some countries that I STRONGLY ADVISE not to go for solo travelling:
