Solo travel can be scary, but a holiday alone might just change your life. Though you may be tempted to jet off with your friends and family, the experience of solo travel is one many celebrate and encourage, no matter what your age.

With such a big world, it can be difficult to know just where to start, so we’ve compiled a list of five of the best places to visit as a solo traveller. For more top tips on the best places for solo travellers, check out the tips from traveller extraordinaire The Secret Traveller.

Seoul, South Korea

A relatively unexplored part of the world for Western travellers, South Korea has quickly become a hub of culture, design and cuisine in Asia. According to SoloTravellerWorld, Seoul especially is renowned for its affordable hotels, a wide variety of Asian and fusion cuisines, and stunning architecture that makes for excellent Instagram snaps. You can even travel further outside of the city and explore beaches, mountain ranges and traditional villages. Aside from that, you can try the best dishes that Koreans love. Booking a restaurant in advance through the eatigo app can also help you get special deals and discounts and add a little luxury on your travel without spending much.

Copenhagen, Denmark

It’s not the happiest place in the world for no reason. With a charming blend of rustic Danish charm and sleek Scandinavian design, Copenhagen has one of the lowest crime rates in the world and is renowned for its friendly locals. Take a historical biking tour around the city or get up close to Danish royalty by visiting Amalienborg or Christiansbourg Palace. Don’t forget to try Denmark’s famously delicious pastries and cakes, too!
