8 Ideal Destinations for the Solo Traveler Slideshow

Slide 1 of 8
Australia

With the friendliest of countrymen and a culture of adventure, Australia is a great destination for solo travelers. Dive the Great Barrier Reef, take in a concert at Sydney Opera House, relax on the beach, or explore the ‘food capital’ of Melbourne (munching on the likes of prawns, Bluefin tuna, and lobster). It is one of the top 20 safest countries in the world and, with no language barrier, is among the easiest to navigate. No traveler to Australia can exhaust the enormous list of activities, so boredom and loneliness prove near impossible here. Don’t forget to try toast with Vegemite for breakfast — a national treasure.
