Traveling with a friend seems like the perfect holiday treat although there are some drawbacks. The choice of destination varies from person to person; while you might love to mingle with local people, your friend might feel like being in a solitary place. Moreover, there is the prevalent issue of scheduling and funding, and who knows, you might feel like having some “me-time” after all?
Let’s have a look at the top ten places that you can consider traveling solo with a traveling app –
1.Paris, France — Paris has its signature charm with Eiffel Tower while the Louvre Art Museum just adds to the charm being the world’s largest museum of art. Marvel at the Gargoyles and buttresses of Notre-Dame de Paris or walk through the gilded apartments of Versailles Palace which is famous for the fountain show and the Hall of Mirrors. Jardin du Luxembourg, Disneyland, Moulin Rouge, Les Invalides, Pantheon, and Grand Palais are some other attractions from the long list.
2.Morocco, North Africa — For women solo travelers and photographers especially, Morocco is a whole new world with a vibrant landscape, labyrinthine medinas, and the blue colored buildings blending with the sky. Visit Fez to learn about the tannery business and watch it firsthand from a balcony or take a ride on the Rif Mountains to have a birds-eye view.
3.Ladakh, India — Flanked by the Himalayas, Ladakh is secured by Military force and hence, is safe for any solo traveler. Take a bike or a jeep and set out to explore the Moonland, the cold deserts of Nubra, the highest motorable Khardung La Pass or the highest saltwater Pangong Lake. Traveler’s social network can be expanded with the vibrant festivals held at the monasteries.
4.Buffalo, New York — A safe night-life with local singles sharing their experiences till the breaking dawn, Buffalo is among the safest and coolest cities for traveling solo. Sit back on the Canalside Park or walk through the stone-arch bridges overlooking the lakes at Delaware Park. Seek for history at the Museum of Science, History Museum or Frank Lloyd Wright’s Martin House Complex.
5.Queenstown, New Zealand — The Wakatipu lakeside Queenstown is a treat for solo travelers, especially women and adventure geeks who have an inclination towards skiing, bungee jumping, parasailing, and rafting. Horse-riding through lush hills of Paradise and sighting dolphins, penguins and seals from Milford Sound are your treats.
6.London, UK — London is undoubtedly among the most mentioned places in the traveling app. From enlightened London Eye or Tower Bridge over the Thames to the Big Ben and Buckingham Palace, Trafalgar Square to Hyde Park, Westminster Abbey to St Paul’s Cathedral –the list is endless.

Have some local food at Broadway Market and then check out the British Museum and Natural History Museum.
7.Bali, Indonesia — If tranquility and spirituality were defined for a place, Bali would have definitely made to the list with a number of spa houses, yoga centers, and meditation rooms.

8.Alaska, USA — Solo travelers can lose themselves in the kingdom of ice with thick snow-swathed mountains, glaciers of all sizes and the fjords carved by those glaciers.
