A number of people choosing to travel the world by themselves has steadily grown over the past few years.
Last year, a survey by BookYogaRetreats.com found that more than half of respondents (51 percent) said they will be heading off on their next holiday alone. And why not? You get to do all the fun stuff on your own terms without anyone raining on your parade.
Asking strangers to take pics of you 24/7 might start to grate after a while but guys, that’s why they invented the selfie stick.
Solo traveling can be nerve-wracking, though, so knowing that a particular destination is accommodating and welcoming to solo travelers is reassuring.
Airbnb, the accommodation service where people can list their homes and hotels for holiday rentals, has collated its data to find out where the most solo bookings are taking place at the moment.
The website say that in some particularly solo traveler-friendly destinations such as Buenos Aires, Toronto and Oslo, anywhere from 14% to 27% of all bookings are made by people on their own. However, there are also a new set of emerging cities which are witnessing a huge increase in solo bookings.
Using their data from 2016, the company found that Cancun in Mexico saw a 170% increase in solo bookings. Spring break solo? Why the hell not.
Here are the top 10 trending solo-traveller destinations you should consider booking for your next trip:
Cancun, Mexico -170%
