Do you know what’s exciting? Travel is back in full swing and new travel trends are emerging now more than ever. People have realized that it’s okay to live life on their own terms, and it’s an exciting time to be a travel fan!

Traveling solo It is a huge trend sweeping the world right now. Men and women, even those in relationships, more and more want a taste of independence, and what better way to find that than through travel?

US News recently released its findings after drawing data from more than 17,000 people around the world on the best destinations for solo travel. Participants were asked to fill out a questionnaire that included several factors, ranging from cultural accessibility to safety.

A stunning country lined with charming homes, flowing canals, and bikes galore – it’s no surprise that… Holland It made it to the list as one of the best places for solo travel!

Tulip fields

Safe for everyone

There’s something to be said for a destination that’s safe for solo travelers, but there’s even more to be said when it’s considered safe for everyone.

In recent news, Amsterdam has just launched a skate park that is considered a “safe haven for the gay community and women.” A country that supports safe spaces for anyone is the country we want to see!

The city’s skate park welcomes everyone who wants a space to express themselves, meet new people, practice their passion, and not feel judged.

Channels in the Netherlands

Thrill seekers

If we dig a little deeper into the results, the Netherlands scored 57.9 points in the Adventure category. While the country is undoubtedly known for its colorful tulip fields, windmills, and vibrant capital, the country also has another side that most people don’t get to experience.

Surprisingly, the Netherlands has a lot of options when it comes to adventure activities and things to do. Let’s take a look at Amsterdam: The city has installed the A’DAM Lookout swing on top of a 20-storey rooftop!

If you’re looking to see more of the country than just the capital, you’re in the right place. Bungee jumping, hiking, windsurfing, catacombs, there is no shortage of activities for thrill seekers there.

Did anyone say easy portability?

As a solo traveler, it’s not ideal to explore a new country without any means of transportation. Fortunately, the Netherlands takes the hassle out of transportation.

Once you reach a certain area or city, trams and metro are definitely the best way to get around. However, if you are still moving across the country, it is best to stick to regional trains and buses for longer journeys.

A canal-centric country, many cities in the Netherlands also offer transportation by boat or ferry: what’s the best way to see a new destination?

If you’ve read anything about the Netherlands, I’m sure you’ve heard about the bike culture here. It is very common among the Dutch to get around by bicycle.

Whether you’re in a hurry for a ride or looking to meet friends at the bar, expect to see a few hundred bikes on the way. In any city it is very easy to rent a bike for a week or a day!

Furthermore, the Netherlands (especially Amsterdam) is probably one of the best locations in Europe for great hostels. If you want to make new friends quickly, this is the way to do it!

From party houses to island accommodations, the Netherlands offers a little something for everyone. Anything goes in this country that looks to the future, and It’s easy for anyone to feel at home!

The Dutch have seen it all and are very welcoming to those from all walks of life. Having personally visited over 32 countries (mostly alone), I can confidently say that I felt the most underrated in the Netherlands. The locals will always welcome you with a friendly smile and a wave!
