Summer Holidays - Singles Breaks
If you’ve decided that this summer is the perfect time to head off into the world and enjoy a spot of solo travelling, Netflights has a host of ideas, tips and advice for a singles summer holiday. More and more people are choosing to head off on their own for their summer holiday; with many making their own travel plans and meeting up with friends or other travellers at pre-arranged points in their trip. Travelling solo can be a wonderful experience – allowing you to change your plans at a moment’s notice! Whether you’re looking for an adventure holiday you’ll always remember or want to backpack your way across Asia, we can help plan the perfect trip for you.
If you fancy staying fairly close to home this summer, why not take a singles trip to Istanbul? The capital of Turkey is a heady mix of European and Asian culture – nestled between the Sea of Marmara and the Black Sea, it offers a combination of urban cool and seaside relaxation. Spend your days at the Grand Bazaar or the Egyptian Markets – haggling for exotic spices or hand crafted jewellery – before heading out with the locals in the evenings. Istanbul is also home to a number of boat and yacht races through the summer – a perfect day out to meet some friends!
Solo Travel in Asia
If you’re looking to plan a longer solo summer trip, Asia is an incredibly popular destination for all travellers. A backpacker’s paradise, living costs are far lower than in Europe and the huge contrast in potential destinations means you can easily stay in Asia for months! Depending on where you go, Asia during summer can be anything from warm and rainy to hot and humid – and anywhere in between!
Bangkok is a great place for a single visitor to start their Thai journey – it’s the gateway to the rest of Thailand, and completely unlike the rest of the country. You’ll find great street food, friendly Thai faces and a plethora of bars to explore – but steer clear of the typically touristy areas and try to see the ‘real’ Bangkok instead.
Asia also offers an intriguing destination in the form of Beijing – the city where China’s cultural identity and traditions swirl around a high-rise landscape. Beijing is a brilliant base for travellers visiting China for the first time – sights like the Great Wall (a short drive away) and the Forbidden City are great ‘bucket list’ activities!
Similarly, Kuala Lumpur and Manila are great places for a solo visitor to take their first steps into Malaysia and the Philippines. Urban environments give way to the exciting local areas which are great to explore during the summer – from the markets selling summer delicacies to festivals and parties through the evenings!
USA as A Single Traveller
If Asia doesn’t appeal to you, the USA is always an exciting place to visit, alone or with friends. Rather than heading to Orlando or LA – which are both busy during the summer months – why not explore Miami on your own? America’s old-time glamour can be felt here in abundance, and great beaches and long cocktails will always be an attractive proposition!
Many people are hesitant about taking their first solo holiday, but it’s the perfect way to explore the places you’ve never visited and meet like-minded people whilst you have fun!
