Travelling to a foreign destination can affect your experience. Sometimes you might get lost or stuck on the way.

These are a few tips to navigate accross new cities for the solo traveller.

Get oriented

A Hop On, Hop Off tour is great if you’re short on time or want to get

an overview of the city before you dig into its specifics.

Short walking around the city

There is no better way to get to know a city and understand its culture than walking.

It slows you down so that you can see the nuances of society and understand how the city is designed.

Take local transit

If you are going to a non-English-speaking country. Research how the system works before you get there or ask at your hotel before you head out.

Also, look for passes and special deals for tourist

Travel between destinations.

Whether you choose the train, bus, or plane, live within the limits of a carry-on bag or backpack.

You’ll be happy you did as you manage to move around. From destination to destination with greater ease.

Tips for plane travel

Confirm that your flight is on schedule before leaving for the airport. Board as soon as you can so you have no trouble putting your carry-on luggage in an overhead compartment.

At check-in, ask if the flight is ‘full’ or ‘light.’ If it’s light, you may be able to jockey for a better seat.

If you have a connecting flight, get all the information you need. Before boarding your first flight make the connection easily.

Bring light snacks with you. If there’s turbulence there won’t be served during the flight. Ginger snaps are a good snack and they settle the stomach.


Solo travel is a new luxury. Travelling alone can be either for adventure, climbing, historical or even city tours.

You can either decide to travel abroad or within your country. Travelling solo can take 10 or even more days, plan and know which destination you want to visit.

To make out of it, you should have patience. Spend time saving money. Researching and making better decisions are the hallmarks of travelling solo.
