7 Tips for First-Time Solo Travelers

Just like most holidays, as solo travelers, we have to do some planning. So, kudos to you for being here as this must be your first step in planning your trip. Here are some things you have to do next: 

1. Research, research, research!

Before you set off on your solo adventure, it’s important to do some research on the place you’re planning to visit. Find out about the local culture, customs, and regulations so you can avoid any trouble. Make sure to also research the best places to visit, what to pack, and how to get around.

2. Create an Itinerary

You don’t want to forget about things you have planned. Hence, having a table or, if you prefer, a checklist of your things to do will be great. It would be even better if you had a plan B for your travel plans because you will never know about the weather, you know?

3. Plan Some Spare Time

Planning an itinerary is good, but that does not have to be a limitation as to where you have to go. That is why planning some spare time might be a good anticipation plan. Spare time also means that you have to know how long it takes from one site to another, so you can plan your spare time to be en route to be able to arrive on time.

4. Pack lightly!

You don’t wanna drag a 40kg suitcase. Trust us.

Solo traveling gives you a chance to be able to commute quicker compared to when you are traveling in groups. Hence, you will be able to see more places. So, don’t let your luggage stop you! Make sure you pack the necessary things only. It’s safer and it will be easier for you to hop from one place to another if you must!

5. Confused? Ask the locals!

This is the golden key for solo traveling. It is okay to be clueless, especially if it’s your first time traveling alone. What to do when you are confused is to keep calm and ask the locals around you. You will never know how nice people can be sometimes!

6. Be flexible, and explore everything

Again, your solo traveling plan does not have to be rigid. Be open and be flexible. Try foods that you never tried before! See traditional dances that might be interesting for you! Make friends with fellow travelers to Go. Live. Explore!

7. Stay in a good supporting place for solo travelers, Hostel!
