Top four Destinations for the Perfect Female Solo Trip
Frankfurt, 22 May 2019 – Over the years, solo female travel has been steadily on the rise and is showing no signs of stopping. While some might be a little daunted at first to go on a trip alone, solo travel can be extremely rewarding by giving women the opportunity to do some soul-searching while being on the road. With full focus on the individual’s preferences on travel schedules and activities, solo traveling is an adventure that every woman should embark on. WorldHotels has proposed a select list of destinations that are ideal for solo female travelers - with the promise of overcoming fears, gaining self-confidence and creating unique, unforgettable memories.
1. Enjoy two faces of a party island on Mykonos, Greece
Mykonos is ideal for solo travelers. The island not only offers golden sandy beaches but also a nightlife that lasts all night long. The 16th century windmills that line up on a hill above Mykonos town are an iconic feature. Female travelers also love Little Venice for its postcard views: Stunning historic houses, boutiques and cozy restaurants giving off a charming, picturesque aura. Here people gather to watch the sunset and to start their evening. On a hilltop overlooking beautiful Mykonos town across the azure Aegean Sea, Mykonos No5 offers privacy and exclusivity close to the crystalline waters of world-famous beaches such as Ornos and Aghios Ioannis. The hotel also offers sea-view massages on Bali beds, candlelit fine dining around an outdoor pool and cocktails as the sun slides gently below the horizon.
Insider tip: Female travelers can order the extensive breakfast to their rooms and enjoy it on a private balcony with sea view while listening to their entire music library with the in-room Sonos Speakers.
2. Unleash fashionista vibes at New York, United States of America
Hailed to be one of the big four “Fashion Capitals” in the world, the Big Apple holds great influence over international fashion trends and is widely recognized as the mecca for fashion events and trade fairs, New York even has a “Garment District” in midtown Manhattan, where the city’s fashion supplies stores are located at. Fashionistas who have long dreamed to create their own designs should head down to fabric shop Mood Fabrics, made world-famous by the reality TV show Project Runway. Pick up some designer fabrics and sewing materials for upcoming fashion projects, get inspirational tips from its staff and be sure to give some pats to the shop’s friendly resident Boston terrier Swatch too! The store also organizes frequent workshops for those looking to pick up a new skill. The Sanctuary Hotel New York is just a short walk away from Garment District. Guests should check out the hotel’s chic rooftop bar, which boasts stunning views of Manhattan and offers guests tasty bites and craft cocktails.
Insider tip: Experience hospitality like no other as the hotel is known for its special S.T.A.R. program that dedicates a private concierge to each guest, which could offer ladies with additional help such as arranging for exclusive travel experiences!
3. Embrace the very best of Japanese culture in Tokyo, Japan
Japan is known to be a country that prides itself on its safety and orderliness, and locals have been known to be extremely helpful. There is plenty to do and see in Tokyo, but one must-try experience is a kimono fitting session. Renowned for its exquisite beauty as one of the country’s strongest cultural symbols, it is a quintessential Japan experience and a real treat to try on. It should be completed with an elaborate tea ceremony, which includes learning how to prepare matcha green tea traditionally and tasting delicate Japanese sweets after. If time permits, travelers should visit Meiji Jingu, Tokyo’s most visited shrine dedicated to the Emperor Meiji and the Empress Shoken in 1920. After a day of immersing in the local cultural experience, RIHGA Royal Hotel Tokyo is a great place to relax. Ladies will be pleased to know that each room offers thoughtful female essentials such as skincare products, elastic hair ties and razors – just one of the ways that the hotel extends its hospitality to welcome women travelers.
Insider tip: The hotel also has a smartphone in every room offering complimentary internet access, domestic calls and a city guide for easy solo navigation around the city.
4. Fulfill childhood dreams at the world’s oldest amusement park in Copenhagen, Denmark
Those looking to reconnect with their inner child should make a trip to Copenhagen, a thriving city in Scandinavian Europe. While the Tivoli Gardens is probably the most famous amusement park in the Danish capital, kick things up a notch and take a short 20-minute train ride up north from the city center to Dyrehavsbakken (in short Bakken), the world’s oldest operating amusement park. While its origins trace back to a humble natural spring popular among locals back in 1583, Bakken is now home to a large variety of carnival games, thrill rides and entertainment options for all ages. Brave souls must conquer the most famous (and oldest) ride there of all – the Rutschebanen, a wooden roller coaster that is opened since 1932. After an incredible day of fun and games, recharge at Tivoli Hotel and Congress Center, which is conveniently located in downtown Copenhagen. Just a ten-minute walk away from the Copenhagen Central train station, the hotel provides easy access to the main city attractions and is close to the airport.
Insider tip: Ladies who are susceptible to allergic reactions can opt for the allergy-friendly rooms at Tivoli Hotel and Congress Center, which feature a no-smoking rule, wooden floorings and hypoallergenic bedding materials.
