People tend to forget that there’s always a rainbow after the rain, especially when they go through a heartbreak—or worse, a divorce. While the Internet mourns over #Bradxit, we choose to look at the silver lining instead. Being alone doesn’t necessarily translate to being lonely; on the contrary, it gives you a chance to step back, do things you’ve always wanted to do by yourself, and visit places you’ve only ever dreamt of visiting before.
In need of a perk-me-up? ZUJI Singapore looks at the top five destinations best suited for the newly single, each place brimming with its own uniqueness and secrets just waiting to be discovered.
1. Las Vegas, U.S.A
What better way to tap on your newly found freedom than to step into the glitzy Sin City, guaranteed to keep you entertained ‘round the clock? Unleash pent-up emotions and channel them on off-road dessert adventures, wallet-friendly outlet shopping, swanky casinos, clubs, and world-class dinning at its celebrity-chef restaurants. Vegas has it all for the newly single—and besides, what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas!
2. Goa, India
If dancing barefoot at the beachfront clubs fits your groove, then head over to India to pamper yourself at one of Goa’s best beaches. While Goa is renowned as a beach party central, it has so much more to offer if you are game to venture off the beaten track, perfect for free-spirited travellers. The city is filled with exquisite, Instagrammable Portuguese-inspired architecture that are absolutely breath-taking such as the Basilica of Bom Jesus, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. If you are ready to inspire your soul all over again, this is the place to be.
3. The Bahamas
Nothing beats the mesmerising Mother Nature when it comes to invigorating the soul and clearing one’s mind. With over 2,000 sprawling islands and cays, you will be spoilt for choices and a fail-proof itinerary at the pristine Bahamas. Dip your toes into the world-famous pale pink sands at Harbour Island or lose yourself at Treasure Cay Beach, voted one of the region’s top 10 thanks to its sugar-soft sand and crystal-clear waters. Can you hear the waves calling out to you yet?
4. South Korea
Immerse yourself in the buzzing food scene and give in to the temptation of that spicy fried chicken or steaming bibimbap.Korea is the ultimate haven for those looking to feast their stomach… and eyes. Considered home to some of the most attractive people in the region, any one of its lush national parks will be the perfect spot to people-watch while enjoying a bowl of Ddeokbokki or two. They say food is the best recipe to mend a broken heart, so might as well enjoy the scenery while you’re at it!
5. Melbourne, Australia
It’s easy to take a well-deserved break and feel right at home in the world’s most livable city. Spend quality time with yourself and grab a cup of locally brewed coffee—also voted world’s best—in one of its famous hidden alleyways. Make sure you set aside time to do some café-hopping (there are tours available, too) to try the endless selection of mouth-watering desserts and warm pastries, and unwind at end the day at one of its rooftop bars.
Out with the old, in with the new. Whether you choose to dance your troubles away, take a pause to reflect on yourself, or immediately jump back to the market to find your next love story, the world is right there waiting for you to explore. Check out ZUJI Singapore to plan your next journey!
