As travelers have become more likely to travel solo, one of the benefits of traveling solo is being in full control of your itinerary.
If you want to go to more popular destinations, like Paris, New York or Dubai, there is nothing wrong with that. You will never get bored as they are popular for a reason with many attractions.
Some major cities can be too expensive. But there are plenty of wonderful off-the-beaten-path places worth exploring too, especially when you’re on your own and on a budget.
Are here 7 Affordable Off-Road Destinations Perfect for a Solo Trip:
Why not visit a truly unique place with a mix of multiple cultures? Puducherry (or Pondicherry) is a coastal city away from the hustle and bustle of Mumbai and New Delhi.
French and Indian cultures are a staple in this charming and picturesque city. Solo travelers will be amazed as they walk the streets past the colonial-era buildings.
The beaches here are highly underrated and are a huge draw for those who know they exist. Solo travelers into yoga and meditation need look no further, as the city welcomes those looking to improve their mind, body, and soul.
This city is an amazing place to experience French cuisine and authentic cafes without setting foot in France. The average cost of a cappuccino is $1.75, according to numbering.

When you think of taking a trip to Europe, Bratislava may not immediately come to mind. Just over the Austrian border is a quirky city well worth exploring on your own.

Santa Ana, El Salvador
The president of El Salvador has taken controversial steps to reduce the crime rate to combat its negative redress in the mainstream news.

Santa Ana, in particular, is known for being the safest city in the country, and residents are proud of it.
Home to extremely affordable pupusas that will leave your mouth drooling for more low-priced accommodation, easy access to charming little towns, and the picturesque volcano of Santa Ana, this city should be on your radar.

A visit here will make you feel like you’re in a storybook while sticking to a tight budget.
