1. South Island, New Zealand

New Zealand's South Island boasts some of the most scenic coastline you'll ever see. It's a great place for adventurers with epic kayaking, hiking, skydiving bungy jumping and horse riding galore.

Budapest is one of the best destinations to hit up in Europe. Its welcoming atmosphere and superb nightlife make it a party-goers dream.

Special mention to Retox Party Hostel, who's staff will remember your name, make you feel so welcome and most importantly, show you an amazing time.

4. Thailand

Since seeing The Beach, Thailand has become a solo traveller's dream. It's filled with scenic white beaches, crystal blue water and beautiful huge buckets of alcohol. There are loads of tours to travel all around the country, plenty of hostels to stay in on the mainland or on the islands, and loads to see and do.

Stay at the Yard Hostel, Bangkok.


5. Copenhagen, Denmark

What makes Copenhagen so great is that it can be easily seen by foot or better yet, bike. Make sure to grab some Scandi brunch at Kalaset, head to the Green Light District and chill out in some of the low-key bars.
