Are you traveling alone for the first time and wondering where to travel? In this article, Kiki, a solo traveler from California, shares her list of the best cities to travel alone around the world! 


Few cities on this planet can rival the Eternal City’s rich heritage. Transport yourself back to the ancient Roman Empire then explore the rich modern culture of Italy’s dazzling capital city.

I promise you it is worth the trip! When you are tired of winter in the Northern Hemisphere, head down to the sizzling beaches of Melbourne and explore the galleries, theatres, and museums that make up this culturally-rich city.

I couldn’t count the number of serious solo travelers who have told me that Amsterdam—with its gorgeous canals, world-famous museums, and infamous nightlife—is their favorite city in the world. Once you go, it’s easy to see why it holds a special spot in so many explorers’ hearts.

The hometown of Freud, Mozart, and Beethoven have earned more than a few bragging rights over the years. Its rich history, remarkable palaces, and dynamic history make the Austrian capital the perfect place to explore.

Like a breath of fresh air, this eclectic and colorful city is unlike anywhere you have ever been. Explore the city, hike the countryside, and, if you are lucky enough to be there for winter, see the Northern Lights.

Nestled on Lake Wakatipu with the Southern Alps in the backdrop, this New Zealand city is home to amazing Chardonnay and Pinot Noir vineyards. As a bonus for solo travelers, Kiwis are some of the friendliest people you’ll ever have the pleasure of meeting.

Western Europe’s largest city is the ultimate blend of modern and traditional—you could spend a lifetime exploring London and never get bored. Come along and prepare to indulge your every whim in the British capital.

San Francisco

Have a picnic overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge, explore the city’s hippie past and eclectic present, and treat yourself to some foodie treasures. Did you know that San Francisco has more farmers’ markets and restaurants per capita than any other city in North America?

Who wants to take a solo trip this year? ✈️ •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• I'm currently planning my first trip of 2020 with me, myself and I! Solo travel is my own form of #selfcare. While it can seem daunting, traveling on your own is incredibly liberating! You pick wherever and whenever you want to go, what you want to do, and what you want to eat. It might seem straight forward, but even when you're traveling with your family, or best friend, or partner, you end up doing some things you don't necessarily want to do, or you might skip something that really excites you! I've traveled alone all over the world—from Mozambique to Egypt to France and they've been some of my all-time favorite trips. Scuba diving has become my biggest passion and, most of the time, I choose to take these types of trips alone. This year, I've decided to book a solo trip to go diving in Curacao! Part of the ABC islands, this island has amazing coral reefs, sea walls, and sunken ships. I’m booking my trip NOW during @Expedia’s Spring Sale (until March 1)—there are tons of deals on flights, and up to 40% off hundreds of hotels and activities! There’s even an additional 10% off coupon exclusively for LIKEtoKNOW.it shoppers. Check out my link in bio to save! Where will you be heading? •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #sponsored #LTKexpedia http://liketk.it/2KNCv #liketkit @liketoknow.it
