Henry David Thoreau once said, “I never once found a companion as companionable as solitude.” Travelling with one or more companions is surely a nice thing to do, but it’s only when you travel alone that you tend to appreciate the things surrounding you in a different manner.

You will even enjoy the food better because you will be able to taste and enjoy the flavors and the aroma at your leisure. There are many reasons a woman may want to go travelling solo. Regardless of what they may be, here are the top 5 destinations that are perfect if you want to take some time off and indulge yourself.
