Verona, Italy
In the homeland of Juliet, every corner breathes romance, and there are not so many tourists in the summer - most prefer to stay here passing through. However, you can do the same, taking your favorite book with you, renting a car and wandering around the Italian province wherever you wish. Italy is good in the dynamics of long journeys, and in measured walks, if only you do not forget to pause for the sake of pizza or ice cream.

Hong Kong, China
For some reason, Hong Kong has established itself as a route for business tourism, but there will be some advantages to traveling alone: ​​no one will look askance when you solo go on a boat trip around the bay or sit down to try local dumplings of dim sum at a table on one. And this city of skyscrapers is perhaps the most inspired (and safe!) Place for walking at night in Asia, when all the buildings are illuminated with thousands of lights and you feel that you are in the future.

How to organize a trip alone?

Tips for a successful trip alone might be the same as tips for any other trip, in a couple or in a big company, except that this time you better be a little more prudent in terms of organizing the trip and think about possible misunderstandings in advance:
- When booking a hotel, make sure that you are offered a single room for payment, so as not to overpay;
- Take with you not too many things in the expectation that up to the baggage limit there will be a few kilograms for "souvenirs", because the option "shift part to a friend" will not be;
- Write down all emergency telephones and, if possible, take two phones with you, in order to use a local SIM card in one, and in another - a Russian one;
- If you have two plastic cards, then take both with you on the trip and always leave one at the hotel, so as a last resort you can transfer money to it;
- Find public transport from the airport, not to pay for a taxi alone, - usually on tourist forums there is information about the price, schedule and even the place of the stop;
- Choose a hotel with a 24-hour reception, so as not to worry that the plane will be late or you decide to stay at a party for a long time;
- Try not to look like a tourist, so as not to attract too much attention to yourself, and do not walk along the streets, having buried in a guidebook. Walk better by yourself and discover new places with your own eyes.
