Top 10 Solo Travel Vacations - Overall
There is a tour for doing almost anything for solo travelers. You can bike, hike, fish, bird watch, dance, drink, play music, meditate, lose weight, fall in love, or just get some time to yourself. As traveling solo tends to be more expensive than traveling in a group, most solo travelers tend to stick to third world or cheaper destinations. Whether they are there to meet people or just get away from them, an entire world of options awaits.
