The rise of solo travel in 2017

From: We Heart Living

Statistics reveal more of us are travelling alone, giving way to the rise of solo travel in 2017. If you’re planning a trip for one, add these spots to your must-visit list.

The best places to travel alone
A recent bookyogaretreats.com survey found that 69 per cent of Brits will be taking their next trip solo. It also found that there has been a 230 per cent increase in the number of women-only travel companies. And when we approached travel company Contiki travel, it revealed that 66 per cent of their solo travellers in 2016 were women.

Travelling alone gives you the ultimate me-time. But if you are after some company once you’re on the road, there are plenty of travel agencies offering group tours, too. In fact, intrepid found that 60 per cent of its real-life adventure tours are made up of solo travellers and more than half of its total customers are travelling alone! The trend continues as 53 per cent of trips booked through Contiki in 2017 so far have been solo travellers. If you feel like getting a ticket out of here, make sure to check out these five spots that are ideal for solo travel.

Bliss Sanctuary for Women, Bali

Bali: it’s the spot du jour and it’s all over our Instagram feeds, boasting a tropical paradise loved by travellers. Founded by Australian Zoë Watson, Blissful Sanctuary was born through her own struggle to find a place to unwind. Forget the organised group activities that you often have to face when travelling solo, this is truly a self-nurturing experience. Do what you like, when you like. No time schedule needed. Experience the unique beauty treatments, yoga classes and beautiful views in a couple-free, kid-free and male-free zone.
