See Vietnam from Top to Bottom

You can enjoy a meal at a Buddhist nunnery, take an overnight boat trip on Halong Bay, and take a heart-pounding motorbike tour through Hue on the Vietnam Express Soundbound trip from Intrepid Travel. Starting in Hanoi and ending in Ho Chi Minh City, this 10-day trip is a solo-only version of one of the company’s most popular tours, so you’ll never feel like a third wheel.

From the famed city of Troy to the stunning archaeological ruins of Ephesus, Turkey’s ancient treasures will appeal to any solo history buff.

Beyond historical experiences, the trip also includes a stay in a cave hotel, a pottery-making demonstration, and a performance by whirling dervishes.

Discover Melbourne and the Australian Outback

Knock a few of Australia’s major attractions off your bucket list on the 12-day Melbourne, Outback, & Uluru Adventure from G Adventures. The trip starts in culture-rich Melbourne, travels along the scenic Great Ocean Road, and winds its way through the rugged Outback to Uluru, a sacred site for the Aboriginal people. This intimate small-group tour maxes out at 16 people, so you can count on getting to know your fellow travelers. If you’re traveling solo, G Adventures will pair you with a same-sex roommate, or you can pay extra for the “My Own Room” option if you’d rather have a little privacy. This trip runs on select dates throughout 2019.
