Solo travel is a bit intimidating for experienced travelers as well.

Pro Tip: "The mistake most travellers make when visiting Canada is to underestimate its size – this is a huge country, the 2nd largest in the world. So any itinerary that, for example, tries to cover Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal, and Quebec City in one week is crazy. If you’re going to visit Canada my biggest recommendation is that you focus on a specific region of interest and not try to stuff the whole country into one visit." - Frank in Canada: Easy Ways To Travel In A Large Country
Places to Visit: Vancouver Island, BC, Rocky Mountains, The Prairies, Quebec City
Pro Tip: "Hoi An really comes to life at night. The lantern-lined streets look magical. There are so many good restaurants, but two of my favorites were Mango Mango (45 Nguyen Phuc Chu +845103911863) and Cargo Bar. If you want somewhere cool, but fun for just a drink, then heads to Q Bar." Tsai Wharton in Exploring Vietnam: My 10 Day Guide
Pro Tip: "For respect and for your own safety, behave as they do: cover yourself, be respectful at temples, avoid to walk alone at night.

Andrea Aguilar in 8 Tips for Solo Women Travelers in India
Pro Tip: "Don’t let it’s (Wild Atlantic Way) billing as a tourist destination put you off – it’s one of the rare things in the world that truly deserves the attention, and for those who are willing to make that extra effort, you will consistently find virgin spots & towns to explore; far from the realms of mainstream tourism." Sanket Dhume in Ireland – 50 shades of green, blue & beer.

Pro Tip: "Kammeny Most (Charles Bridge) is open 24 hours and there obviously is no entry fee. If in case you do not live around Old Town or Mala Strana, both of which are walking distance from the bridge, taking a tram up to Karlovy lázně or Malostranské náměstí is recommended, depending on the side you are coming from."

Places to Visit: Charles Bridge, Prague Castle, Wenceslas Square, Prague Astronomical Clock
Pro Tip: "There is a fine tradition in the Vienna Opera House to save hundreds of standing room tickets to be sold 80-90 minutes before each performance. You can buy these tickets for 5€. Now who can pass up a 5€ ticket to the Opera? Not me." Ankita Mehta in Travel Diaries – Trip to Austria
