Solo travel is one of the ways you can taste liberty for all its worth. If you're one of the bold individuals looking to travel the world on your own, here is a list of overseas destinations for Indonesian solo travelers.


Solo travel, like dining alone, got a bad reputation in Indonesia. However, the norm is very different overseas. In foreign countries, a solo traveler is free, bold, and independent of the choices they make for themselves on the trip.

Solo traveling means that you don't need to wait for other people's luggage or wait for them to wake up from their slumber for you to start the day. Solo traveling allows you to enjoy exploring the world as you like, according to your wishes without anyone interfering with your plans.

If you are ready to take the challenge, here is a list of countries that you can visit for your next solo getaway overseas.
