If you enjoy travelling and exploring new exciting destinations solo, then Greece is the perfect destination to visit. Besides the breathtaking landscapes, beaches, history and culture, we are giving you 8 more reasons why Greece is the best destination for female solo travellers.
1. Greek Hospitality
It is known all around the world that no one does hospitality like the Greeks do! Greeks will go above and beyond to make you feel welcomed and comfortable in their country. They love to engage in conversations and show how proud they are of their history and culture. Don’t be surprised if you spend hours and hours conversing with them over dinner or over a few glasses of ouzo.
2. It’s Safe
Greece is a really safe country where people and their belongings are respected. The general association with the people in this country is that they are really warm and kind-hearted. Even when walking alone at night solo travellers do not have to worry.
3. It’s a Tourist Loving Country
Greece is a well-known tourist destination and each year there are thousands of tourists visiting to enjoy their summer vacation. Everything is adapted for tourists so it is easy to get around and the majority of Greeks speak English. Another benefit of Greece being such a popular destination is that there are many tourist agencies that organize a lot of exciting tours and activities, so don’t miss the chance to explore as much as you can.
4. It’s Picturesque
The mesmerizing landscapes, turquoise sea and golden sandy beaches will definitely take your breath away. Small charming towns and colourful city corners will make the best photo backdrop that will boost your Instagram feed. In Greece, you will understand the true meaning of the saying “a picture is worth a thousand words”!
5. Greek Men
There is a reason why we refer to a really handsome man as a “Greek god”! Well, it’s as simple as that; Greek guys are really really REALLY cute. “My Big Fat Greek Wedding” couldn’t have said it better – you find a Greek man, you get married and there you go.
6. Greek Food
One cuisine to satisfy the pickiest of taste buds through its different styles and approaches. Enjoy the gastronomic manifesto to its fullest — including many healthy choices — found in delicacies all around the country. Be prepared to eat a lot, since portions here are set to — in the words of every Greek giagia — “feed an entire army”.
7. It’s Sunny All Year Round
On average, Greece has about 300 sunny days a year. Just some of the health benefits the sun include its de-stressing factor and vitamin D. For the ladies, some extra benefits include lighter colored hair and tanner skin. That is why Greece should be on the top of your bucket list!
8. There Is So Much To Do in Greece
