New Year trips are a thing now. Instead of spending the New Year’s Eve partying, the millennial crowd as well as the older crowd are travelling to new places to ring in the New Year. Instead of bar hopping, people are trekking, star gazing and island camping, or relaxing in an exotic getaway resort. The New Year experience has become all about tours and travels. And that brings us to the topic of this blog, solo vs group trips.
Once upon a time, taking a solo trip was considered a taboo. Today, it’s a trend to do solo trips simply because the travellers are discovering what it feels like to discover a new place with complete freedom and in their own terms.
Solo trips are self-indulgent. You can rent a Harley Davidson and exploring a new city on your own. Or you could simply explore a historical monument on your own accord. The choices are plenty.
Coming to group trips, these are still a thing. But if you are like the people who think group trips are about hopping in and out of a guided tour bus, you are wrong. If you are a new traveller, a group trip might be ideal as well.
If you ask experienced travellers, they will all tell you that travelling in a group has its own perks. We picked out some of the top perks of traveling in a group and made a chart out of it. Cool, right?
Whether you are planning on solo New Year trips or group New Year trips, we have select three of our best solo and group trips to make things easier for you.
