INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY: 10 OF THE BEST FEMALE-ONLY TRIPS FOR SOLO TRAVELLERS

From: The Independent

Get inspired by these holidays aimed at adventurous women

All hail adventurous women: solo female travel is on the rise, according to new research.

Interest in these types of holidays has risen by 131 per cent over the past two years, according to Google Trends. Meanwhile, a Culture Trip survey of 10,500 respondents found that one-in-three women (34 per cent) said they’d be interested in flying solo in future, compared to just one in seven (14 per cent) who’d taken a trip on their own in the previous five years.

A British Airways study of almost 9,000 18 to 64-year-olds across the UK, US, France, India, Germany, Italy, Brazil and China in 2018 found that more than 50 per cent of women have taken a holiday by themselves, with 75 per cent of women planning a solo trip in the next few years.

Ahead of International Women’s Day 2019 (8 March), and on behalf of adventurous females everywhere, here are 10 of the best trips for SoWAs – Solo Women Adventurers.
