Travel brochures and online travel sites seem to always be showing is images of perfect destinations with couples and families at the heart of the image. For many of us however, this is not what we are after and there are many of us singletons in the World who just want to enjoy a great vacation. There is also a common misconception that just because we are single, that we are actively looking for love, that is not the case for many of us and mostly we just want a relaxing break, perhaps a stranger or two to have a chat with and nothing more. If you fall into this category then here is what you should be looking for in a singles vacation.
Generally speaking, the best people to spend your time abroad with are people who are in the same boat as you are. If you are anything like me, you won’t want to spend time around happy families or love-locked couples and so you should seek out destinations where you know that you will be able to spend your time chatting with like-minded people. Should you try a singles holiday abroad, look to avoid party hotels or those that are geared up for families, the quiet hotels and accommodation are usually the best for singles.
Avoid Peak Times
If possible you should try to avoid taking a vacation during peak season, not only is this a far cheaper option, it will also mean that you can avoid the masses. This will leave you to enjoy your vacation in peace and quiet where you can select who you speak to and when.
Look Out For Tours
I’ve always found tours to be one of the best activities to do on my vacations as a singleton, either taking various tours whilst on vacation, or indeed having a tour as a vacation. The beauty of tours is not only that you will get to see much more on your vacation than simply staying in one place, but also I have found that there are far more likely to be other singletons on a tour with you. As I said before, this isn’t about looking for love, more about finding kindred spirits with whom you can shoot the breeze with.
Look For Single Spots
There are many companies out there who specialize in singles travel and they have hotels that are purely dedicated to single travelers. I was a little skeptical of these places at first but I found it to be a great deal of fun. I always find that meal times are the moments when I wouldn’t mind a bit of company and these types of vacation help you to strike up a chat with someone like you so that you can enjoy some light conversation as you eat, before returning back to your blissful solitude.
Not all singles vacations are about blind dates and meeting the love of your life and no matter what age you are or what your situation is, you can find the perfect holiday for you and your single lifestyle.
