Global trends in tourism have switched very fast in recent years. Some countries gain a lot from such changes, while others end up big losers. With such changes, new spots are bound to emerge, even though there are no significant changes when it comes to world’s top tourist destinations like France, Spain, Japan, the USA and other famous travel hotspots.
However, solo and single travelers, who enjoy not only the historical monuments but also breathtaking landscapes and cultural heritage have somewhat different travel lists than groups of people who travel together. For a solo traveler, it is important to investigate the safety as well as the ‘happening’ ranking of the country they wish to visit. It is not enough for a country to have only untouched natural beauties. It also needs to offer something fun, catchy, and interesting.
