Offers Top 10 Solo Travel Destinations and a How-To Guide on Travelling on Your Own

TORONTO--(Marketwire - May 4, 2011) - Cheapflights.ca, the online leader in finding and publishing travel deals, knows that travelling solo can seem daunting, even in the era of instant global connections. With Cheapflights.ca's guide on How to Travel Solo and Top 10 Destinations to Travel Solo, venturing alone to a bustling city or sun-drenched beach has never been easier.

Staying safe is one of the most important things to consider when travelling alone. While today's world of smartphones, instant communications and i-everythings provide some comfort, there are still some more 'traditional' ways to assure your safety. Cheapflights.ca's How to Travel Solo guide offers advice on ways to avoid trouble when travelling on your own with tips on: scheduling flights; staying in touch and planning your accommodations. Also included in the Cheapflights.ca's guide on How to Travel Solo are tips on choosing a destination. For those travelling solo for the first time, Cheapflights suggests choosing a destination a little closer to home such as the three destinations below included in Cheapflights.ca's list of Top 10 Destinations to Travel Solo.

  • San Francisco, California, USA - It's no wonder that college grads and 20-somethings flock to this West Coast metropolis every year in droves. San Francisco is brimming with young professionals, artists, and other granola-types who together create a melting pot of culture and vitality. Spend no more than a morning playing the typical tourist (though you must) and tour Fisherman's Wharf, Alcatraz and the Golden Gate Bridge. Once your point-and-shoot has had its fill, take a taxi inland to discover the food, music and people that dwell in the city's hippest districts: the Mission, the Haight and Russian Hill. Search and compare cheap flights to San Francisco.

  • Tulum, Mexico - Take a hint from the Mayans if what you need is a white-sand beach for full body (and mind) relaxation. Once a worshiping ground and retreat for Mayan kings, Tulum now serves as a go-to spot for yoga gurus and meditation enthusiasts. Split your time at the bohemian oasis, located on Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula, between soaking up the sun's rays and exploring the area's geographical wonders, from fresh water caves to preserved jungles. Even if sun salutations aren't your favourite, we guarantee Tulum's pristine beaches and aqua seas will be. Search and compare cheap flights to Tulum.

  • New York, New York, USA - With more than 8 million residents roaming its streets daily, New York City is a hard place for a visitor to feel alone. Spend an afternoon in Midtown exploring the Big Apple's main tourist attractions -- Times Square, the Empire State Building, and Rockefeller Centre -- before hailing a cab downtown. Make like a real New Yorker and admire the boutiques of SoHo, the restaurants of the West Village, and the overall fabulousness of Tribeca, before taking the subway south to the Brooklyn Bridge. Whether your preference is to admire the architectural wonder from the Manhattan side or walk across to Brooklyn, you'll marvel in the bridge's -- and the city's -- magnificence. Search and compare cheap flights to New York.
