On the occasion of International Women’s day, online accommodation- booking website Hotels.com lists top solo travel destinations:

Valparaiso, Chile: Explore this 3,000-mile-long country of deserts, mountains, and endless coastline. You could head north to the Atacama Desert or south to Chiloé Island or Patagonia, and save a little time for Santiago. A must visit, however, is the colourful seaside village of Valparaiso. With a magnitude of cultural influences, Valparaiso is called the Little San Francisco.

Tokyo, Japan: Start with the fascinating megalopolis of Tokyo, take a bullet train ride past Mount Fuji to experience the contrasting tranquillity of old Kyoto. Lodgings, from venerable ryokan inns to modern hotels, are designed with single travellers in mind. You can enjoy a communal hot spring bath, meditate in a Zen garden, and dine at the counter of a sushi restaurant

New York, US: Visit the famous Central Park, stroll through the West Village, admire the Empire State Building, and unquestionably treat yourself to a New York-style slice of pizza. Don’t forget to see the legendary Statue of Liberty while you are there.

Nairobi, Kenya: If you’re the types, who likes a bit of city and a bit of nature, then Nairobi is the place for you. The best of both worlds for travellers, Nairobi is a city that offers urban and safari adventure. The best part about Nairobi is that to take a safari one doesn’t even have to leave the city. From there, you can go on a coffee tasting session to experience some of the locally-grown coffee in one of the several coffee shops found in the city.

Barcelona, Spain: Stroll Las Ramblas and enjoy Barcelona’s unique blend of Catalan culture, distinctive architecture, lively nightlife and stylish hotels. You’ll find Europe’s best-preserved Gothic Quarter here, as well as amazing architectural works. Then there’s La Boqueria market, where you can stock up on local delicacies.

Brussels, Belgium: Brussels is filled with 17th-century Art Nouveau buildings and daily flower markets. Visit Brussels’ very own Eiffel Tower, the Atomium. It provides great views, inside and out. Also, needless to say, get some chocolate and waffles.
