Vietnam is a very popular destination for solo travelers and Hoi An in particular is a central place to start your Vietnam trip. The city is a melting pot of cultures and architecture. Hội, with its long history as a trading port and place of traditional production of high quality clothing at affordable prices, attracts people from all over the world. Here you can buy everything from t-shirts and shorts to suits and dresses, or even the outfit of your choice as a bespoke item at a low cost.

In Havana, you can dance salsa with the locals in the evenings, enjoy the sunset with rhythmic sounds or ride horseback through tobacco plantations in Vinales. In Cuba, you should be prepared for limited internet access at times, but for that sacrifice you get a very authentic sense of local life - and in fact, not being able to access social media can be relaxing at times.
