Southeast Asia is a paradise for solo travellers. Imagine spending a week tasting your way through the street food carts of Vietnam. Picture yourself hiking through Thailand’s jungles in search of colourful birds that seem torn from the vibrant pages of encyclopaedias. Envision what life would be like on a Balinese beach with cocktails on tap and all your worries drowned out by spectacular sunsets. Now book these TRIPS by Culture Trip to Southeast Asia and explore the best Asian cities for solo travel in real life.
1 . Go beach-hopping in southern Thailand

Why wait for your friends to take the plunge when you can book this trip and dive into Thailand alone? Treat yourself to a 10-day tour of the south, joined by a small group of like-minded travellers. You’ll get your share of on-water fun, first with a night on a floating raft house in Khao Sok, then kayaking through mangroves and dining on sunset cruises in Krabi, and finally swimming at the inflatable Coco Beach water park on Koh Yao Yai. Climbing to the Hong Island viewpoint provides ample opportunity to dry your clothes as you trek amid jungle and limestone cliffs in pursuit of one of the best outlooks in Thailand.

2 . Trek into the jungle in northern Thailand

Go off the beaten track on this northern Thailand trip. You’ll spend 10 days getting to know the mainland and yourself intimately, with treks through Mae Hong Son’s jungle and climbs up tropical waterfalls. Ancient caves, elephant sanctuaries and street art are yours to explore as you wander from the bike-friendly Chiang Mai to the summit of Doi Inthanon. When you finally reach Warorot Market for souvenir shopping, you’ll wonder what piece of bric-à-brac could ever top the panoramic photos you captured when hiking through craggy Pai Canyon.

3 . Visit the best Asian cities for solo travel in Vietnam

Vietnam boasts some of the best Asian cities for solo travel. You’ll realise it before you even get to Hue, Hoi An or Lan Ha Bay – when you arrive in Hanoi for this 12-day tour, you’ll be swept away by its lively Old Quarter as you sniff out the perfect creamy egg coffee. Though you’ll enjoy the splendour of the countryside and rural villages like Na Chao, the street food tours in Hue and meandering lantern-lit streets in Hoi An will make Vietnam your favourite country for city-hopping.

4 . Soak up the sun in Bali and beyond

Need a solo beach getaway? You’ll have plenty of time for tanning alone on this 12-day trip in Bali, Indonesia. The sun will shine on you wherever you go, from the sacred Lempuyang Temple to the top of Mount Batur. Swimming at the Banyumala Twin Waterfalls will cool your skin just in time to heat it back up on the pristine shores of Gili Trawangan. For those who need to submerge themselves in refreshment, hanging out with the stone statues beneath Gili Meno’s waters will do the trick.
