nations that offer a combination of natural beauty safety and existing

infrastructure that make them superb destinations for those traveling on

their own Costa Rica what makes Costa Rica such a good destination for solo

travelers well for starters it's people are among the happiest in the world

according to the New Economics foundation's Happy Planet Index which

evaluates overall sustainable happiness and environmental efforts Costa Rica

came in at the top spot this Central American country lives by the philosophy

of putas Vida which is essentially a motto championing a simple stress-free

life Costa Rica is a relatively inexpensive

place to travel and the diverse landscape will take your breath away

from the rainforest to the country's many beaches and if you use common sense

during your travel Costa Rica is generally considered to be quite safe

Croatia in recent years this coastal nation seems to be popping up on

everyone's bucket lists seriously there are few destinations more buzz worthy

than Croatia but just because all of your friends plan on visiting this

dreamy land of walled towns and beautiful beaches doesn't mean you need

to go with them in fact now the tourists are arriving in droves one could argue

that there has never been a better time to plan a solo trip to Croatia as

traveling without a large group allows you to blend into the background and

better mingle with the locals rather than standing out as a potential target

for tourist traps you can have a far more authentic experience wander the

winding streets of Dubrovnik or charming corsola town relax on peaceful and

secluded beaches like ste Navarre Lubin itza sample local delicacies and rub

elbows with locals Japan the Land of the Rising Sun is known for many things but

some of its biggest selling points include the famed local cuisine the

breathtaking beauty of its natural spaces and of course the extremely

polite people who live there sure Japan is

couple of rougher neighborhoods in a few of its major cities including Tokyo's

infamous yet interesting red-light district kabukicho but Japan is one of

the greatest tourist destinations in the world where the traditional gardens of

Japan will imbue a solo traveler with a sense of inner peace while the Hot

Springs known as onsen ensure that you return from your journey feeling well

rested and thoroughly relaxed plus Japan's capsule hotels offer some of the

tiniest accommodations in the world meaning that you won't be blowing your

budget on unnecessarily oversized rooms the Netherlands Amsterdam should

definitely be on everyone's solo bucket list

yes groups of friends often travel there to experience its world-renowned

nightlife firsthand but this city of contradictions is also one of the most

peaceful quaint and contemplative cities you'll ever visit it's beautiful with

many portions of the city somehow maintaining the energy and aesthetic of

a small village making it the perfect place for a casual solitary stroll or a

place to recharge your batteries even with often massive crowds of tourists

venture beyond the capital city however and you realize just what a small slice

of the Netherlands you've experienced thus far you'll marvel at the landscapes

including beautiful fields of flowers and historic windmills as well as

charming little towns full of friendly locals Norway there are so many reasons

to visit this Nordic country by yourself outdoor enthusiasts are sure to be

pleased with the abundance of activities in which to partake year round from

downhill skiing and snowboarding to hiking fishing and cycling not only are

the major cities in Norway like Oslo home to some impressive architecture but

the many coastal towns are insanely charming the single biggest draw however

is the nation's incredible landscape Norway is among the most beautiful

countries in the world the dramatic fjords that cut through the

land are truly awe-inspiring and the Lofoten archipelago is like something

out of a dream plus any place where you can see the Northern Lights is worth a

visit with or without company Thailand one of the downsides of traveling by

yourself is that you have no one to split costs with from accommodations and

taxis to basic supplies or even groceries the price of traveling alone

can really add up and unexpected as such it's important to choose your

destination wisely when going on a solo trip and from a budgetary standpoint

Thailand is a great choice excluding your initial airfare but including

accommodation food transport within Thailand and entertainment costs most

backpackers can get by on as little as thirty to thirty five US dollars per day

up the budget to fifty or sixty dollars and you're in for a very comfortable

trip what's even better is that despite the generally low cost of living

Thailand is also considered to be a relatively safe place to travel even for

individuals on their own and for that low cost you can get an incredible array

of cultural experiences and breathtaking landscapes to experience plus if you

ever get lonely there are always plenty of other backpackers to befriend New

Zealand New Zealand is so much more than a filming location for starters it's

worth noting that according to the 2019 Global Peace Index New Zealand is the

second safest country in the entire world second only to Iceland as such you

can feel incredibly safe and secure as you navigate this land of natural

wonders on your own seriously a solo traveler is hard-pressed to find a more

rich or diverse landscape than that of New Zealand the country only consists of

about 100 thousand square miles of land but jammed into this relatively modest

footprint one finds dramatic ice capped mountains and beautiful sandy beaches

incredible waterfalls and rolling fields of green oh and don't forget about the

fjords hot springs subtropical forests and glaciers this is a land of adventure

and excitement filled with too many experiences and sites for you to feel

homesick Germany efficient environmentally minded and yet well

versed in the fine art of having fun Germany is a nation that everyone should

visit at least once yes there's bratwurst and beer to be enjoyed and

you'll likely consume plenty of both but that's just scratching the surface of

what makes Germany such a must visit especially for travelers who are on

their own for starters it's a nation with a great love for art architecture

and music on a quiet afternoon alone in a German city like Berlin Munich Hamburg

or cologne you'll find yourself truly inspired by all the incredible

architecture and the cultural offerings of the museum's

outside the city's castles and ancient forests remind you that this is the land

that inspired the Brothers Grimm add to that the robust excellent food and

incredibly welcoming people and you've got yourself a great solo destination
