Over the years, more and more women have been traveling solo and there is no sign of this trend letting up. Some may be a little daunted to start their journey alone, but solo travel can be highly rewarding for anyone looking for some introspection and growth.
Solo travel is really an adventure that every girl should embark on. Whether you’re a seasoned traveler or striking out on your own for the first time, these three international cities offer awesome sights and plenty of things to do.
Auckland, New Zealand
New Zealand is reputed as the home to the best Sauvignon Blanc in the world. Check out the wineries in Waiheke Island, accessible by ferry from Auckland’s Half Moon Bay, and enjoy glasses of wine amidst a gorgeous scenery of vineyards and beaches.
New York, United States of America
One of the four fashion capitals of the world is also one of the world’s shopping capitals. When at The Big Apple, head off to the Garment District, a destination where fashion supply shops abound. Mustn’t-miss places for fashionistas to pay homage to include Mood, the fabrics store where contestants from the reality show Project Runway source for materials, and Parsons School of Design, which used to host the show. Who knows, you might just spot fashion consultant and mentor Tim Gunn when you visit.
A trip to Japan isn’t complete without the experience of fitting a kimono, the country’s traditional clothing. Complete it with an intricate tea ceremony that involves knowing how to traditionally prepare matcha green tea, followed by tasting servings of sweet treats.
