Number 4 of the 8 best destinations for solo travellers and friends in 2020
Amsterdam, The Netherlands
With an air of conviviality, it’s unlikely you’ll ever feel lonely in this cozy city. From the clustered museum district and masterpieces every few paces to a wealth of up-and-coming neighbourhoods, idleness (or loneliness) is not in the cards here. With a distinctly international crowd, it’s a great spot for creatives seeking inspiration (and possibly an in-depth chat after a couple of rounds of jenever). Tilting gabled buildings, labyrinthine canals and picture-perfect scenes at every corner make this walkable city a real magnet for budding photographers. The train to cities throughout the Netherlands is a must for day trips or longer. Maastricht being a highlight!
