Solo travel is on the rise

Solo travel is on the rise.

A whopping 76 per cent of people gave travelled alone or are considering doing so, according to Klook's Solo Travel study.

And it is certainly the younger market who have travelled alone, with 80 per cent of those in Generation Z (18 to 24-year-olds) and 79 per cent of Millennials (25 to 39-year-olds) wanting to go on their travels solo.

Eric Gnock Fah, Chief Operating Officer & Co-Founder of Klook, said: "It is exciting to see such a strong desire for solo travel across so many demographics. Interestingly, we have observed a surprising contrast where travellers are seeking more me-time and yet are worried about being lonely, resulting in a love-hate relationship with solo travel. But solo travel does not have to be lonely. At Klook, we're thrilled to empower solo travellers to explore new places independently and relish their time alone with confidence. Through connecting solo travellers with others during unforgettable experiences, from surf camps in Bali to wine-tasting in Melbourne's Yarra Valley, we hope more travellers realise that it is okay to explore alone - in fact, it is easier than ever and incredibly rewarding."
