Here are some helpful tips for solo travel in Asia that we think will help make the overall experience a true success

Careful Planning: We firmly believe that you can make the most of your time by planning your days and activities in advance, rather than winging it. This is why we curate our itineraries so carefully and offer a variety of activities and excursions to enjoy at each port. We also recommend doing some research on your own before you travel with us, to see what you'll be getting into each day and all of the great experiences that await you while cruising with us. At Vantage, we do the heavy lifting when it comes to planning, and you'll see this firsthand with our Travel Planner, Concierge services, and Cruise Directors at each step along your journey with us.

Bring Comfortable Shoes and Clothes: During your small ship discovery cruise to Asia, you'll stay very active while in port, and may visit some more remote and challenging places as you travel. We highly recommend packing comfortable shoes and clothes that can be easily layered, as the weather in Asia can be quite varied. You'll want to be able to enjoy walking through nature, sightseeing in the city, and simply relaxing and taking in the fresh air, without being weighed down by unnecessary baggage or feeling uncomfortable in your shoes and clothes.

Prepare for Cultural Differences: As a solo woman traveler, you may experience some shock while in Asia, which is completely normal and expected. All the destinations we sail to have deep cultures, both ancient and modern, and you may find yourself in some unfamiliar situations. Our Cultural Connections program is designed to help you understand and appreciate the cultures you'll be experiencing while on your cruise, and as a solo traveler, we make sure to connect you to fellow solo travelers to share in this immersive learning experience so that you won't feel alone or overwhelmed at any point.

Be Social: There's a myth out there that says that solo travel can be lonely, but it couldn't be further from the truth in our eyes. When you travel solo with Vantage, you're never alone, and we make sure to introduce you to other solo travelers through mixers, lectures, dinner, and events so that you can all enjoy the experience together. From cocktail parties and cooking classes to onboard lectures and shore excursions, you'll make lifelong friends on your trip. We highly encourage you to interact with as many people as you feel comfortable with and take advantage of all these great opportunities to socialize while on board.

Have an Open Mind: One of the best things about travel is that it broadens your horizons and opens your eyes to new experiences and cultures. While traveling solo, it's important to keep an open mind and go with the flow. If you're feeling adventurous, try something new - whether it's a food you've never tried or an activity you've never done. Be open to making new friends and connections, and most importantly, enjoy the experience of a lifetime! Our Asian cruise itineraries cover a lot of ground and offer a little something for everyone, so we know you'll find plenty to do and see that interests you.

We hope these tips have sparked your interest in joining us for your next solo travel adventure to Asia with Vantage.
