Malaysians undoubtedly LOVE travelling, and we always like to include our family, partner or friends for this precious R&R – the more the merrier kan? On the other hand, the underrated concept of “solo travelling” has been gaining momentum in recent years, and deservedly so!

If you’re sceptical or intrigued by the idea of going on holiday alone, here are five reasons why you should try it out at least once in your life!


1. Plan the absolute pitch-perfect trip

There’s only one person you have to satisfy when travelling solo: yourself! You can eat, sleep and explore literally however you want for a stress-free holiday – no need to tahan any fussy travelling companion(s).

Pro tip: Don’t forget to apply for travel insurance while planning your perfect getaway!


2. Explore new things (and yourself!)

With your newfound freedom, you may actually get to learn more about your true self without being hindered! Now you can finally visit “boring” museums, go on daunting deep dives, and venture into the macabre (like the Catacombs in Paris) with zero judgement. It’s a feeling that’s absolutely freeing, which everyone must experience!


3. Self-confidence X INFINITY!

Okay, not exactly “infinity”, but travelling alone DOES do wonders for your self-esteem. By planning a whole trip by yourself, you’ll see firsthand what you’re truly capable of, and even know more about yourself without any outside influence!


4. Meet new people from all walks of life easily

Solo trips don’t mean you have to do everything alone! Not only would you be more approachable to fellow travellers, but you also won’t have to be concerned about how your travelling troupe feels. It’s a great opportunity to learn about different cultures too!


5. Take a break from life, just for a little bit

If you’ve been feeling a little overwhelmed, it’s time you hit the pause button and make space for yourself. When it’s just “me, myself and I”, you’re free from the burdens of loved ones, society’s expectations, and other mental shackles – it’s not an escape, it’s a healing ritual! When all’s said and done, absence truly does make the heart grow fonder.


“Huh, maybe I should try travelling solo next time!”

No matter how you go about your solo travels, the beauty of it is there’s really no wrong way because it’s done entirely up to your own liking! However, going solo also comes with its own unique set of challenges that we won’t usually be accustomed to. 

So, the next time you go travelling alone, make sure you’re well-prepared with plenty of contingency plans, as well as getting travel insurance that you can depend on. In fact, here’s a travel insurance plan that makes it sooooo easy to get insured!
