World’s Best Destinations To Travel Alone

9. Malaysia


One of the top solo travel destinations in Asia. With a well-deserved reputation for being a safe, stable, conservative Muslim country, Malaysia has the hallmarks of an ideal exotic locale for solo travelers.

Why it’s so great:

  • Malaysia is one of the more technologically advanced areas of Asia, so things generally work well and more or less on schedule.
  • The year is filled with colorful and exhilarating experiences including various festivals and events.
  • Malaysia is like two countries in one, with the wild jungles of Borneo and the space-age high-rises of Kuala Lumpur.
