Travelling on your own can be a daunting prospect to anyone but it can also be an exciting opportunity to let yourself go and find some freedom in a busy world. Traveling with others might not even be an option sometimes when you’re networking and travelling for business events, so it’s always worth researching and planning for your solo venture.
The latest infographic from Work the World looks at why we should all be considering a solo expedition, and what the benefits of doing so can do to ourselves. According to a recent survey, 51% of females that were spoken to that had travelled on their own said they were definitely going to do it again within the next 12 months – showing us that while it may be a scary prospect, it certainly seems to pay off in the end.
Heading to business meetings abroad or having to meet up with colleagues in other parts of the world is something quite a lot of us face on a regular basis so knowing the local traditions and expectations are a must – especially with what we choose to wear.
For example, visiting Malaysia? Then outside of Kuala Lumpur and around the eastern states you need to dress conservatively as this is a predominantly Muslim country. Wear loose shirts with long skirts or pants to avoid unwanted attention and from upsetting the locals.
Have a look at the infographic below for some more suggestions on how to blend in to your next destination and to make the most of your solo adventure – even if it’s for business or pleasure.
